This is a topic for discussing the puzzle crime chapter The Fourth Victim. If you need hints, make sure first to check our official walkthrough.

Hi Shailesh. Try to figure out what each of the
fourthree clocks displays at the moment the detective figures out the password. 
Hello Dan. This was a mistake, it was meant to be ‘three clocks’.

Hello Alexander. Try to figure out first what time each of the three clocks shows. Then, see what the clocks display at the time the detective realizes what the password is.

I still don´t understand and the official walkthrough doesn´t have anything. Another hint please.

Hello Courtney. Using the fact that there are exactly 15 broken segments on the displays in total, you can find which these segments are. Then, try to figure out what each clock will show at the moment the detective realized what the code was.

Well done, this was one of the hardest puzzles.

I have tried every number combo you can imagine. There is only 1 sequence possible when you replace the segments… unless its military time. (I haven’t tried military time) I need a better hint, because its not clicking for me.

Hello Miranda. The clocks are displaying the numbers with letters, not digits. I hope this gives an idea.

Hello Jordan. Can you specify where you are stuck?

There is nothing in the walkthrough on this one and I am not understanding it at all. I was thinking of writing down what segments are missing to make numbers but I got lost. Anybody have an image to help?


Hello Jordan. Try to figure out which segments are missing. Then, see what the clocks are going to display (13 – 2 =) 11 minutes later.

I got the segaments but what do i do with the number 11 minutes later?

The **working** segments on the three clocks will depict three numbers. Put them together and you will get the answer 🙂

I still dont understand it i got 09:57, 06:55, and 10:28 are these the correct numbers?

Hi Jordan. Yes, these are the times on the clocks on the picture. 11 minutes later, at the moment when the detective figures out the answer, the times are 10:08, 07:06, and 10:30. Taking into account the missing segments, the clocks then show this:


I need help with this, I don’t understand if I have to look for letters or numbers on the watches

Hi Milagros. First, you need to figure out the times. Then, you need to add 11 minutes to these times. Finally, the clocks will spell out words.

I do not understand how 10:08, 10:30 and 07:06 spell one, nine and ten, I put the missing segments and it does not give me anything logical

After removing the missing segments, the three clocks will show the following:
