File: 1412900431795.gif (140.29 KB, 960x640, Animation_003.gif)

It was February 14th, the day that ponies call, “Hearts and Hooves day”. The victim was performing at a concert that day, from approximately 1:30 PM to 4:45 PM. The victim and the accused have been rumored to have been in a relationship together for quite sometime. The accused visited Miss Melody during that day, after the concert, backstage, presumably to speak of their unspoken relationship. However, clearly, things did not go well, and Vinyl Scratch had murdered Octavia Melody, having been emotionally devastated. She used a pile of vinyl records that she levitated to murder Miss Melody via blunt force trauma. Death was instantaneous. The body was soon found, and reported to the police. I submit the autopsy report and the murder weapon to the court as evidence.

Your Honor, as you can see, this is a very easy case. A bad relationship met one of the worst logical conclusions, break up, through murder.

Many, many things, Father. When you had met your apparent end, Manfred von Karma had took me under his wing, and mentored me. I became a ruthless prosecutor, just like he was. He tried to convict me of murder, for two cases, and failed both horribly, all thanks to the man in the blue suit, Phoenix Wright. Since then, I looked into what it really meant to be a prosecutor. I protect the innocent, by convicting the guilty, through the logical truth.

The Detective went through the logs of the backstage passes. He "dug through everything" he could. More information behind this part of the investigation is irrelevant at this time.

I also just forgot to do this.

But here's all of the evidence we collected for this case:

Exhibit 1. Autopsy Report: Octavia was hit in the back of the head; death was instantaneous at exactly 5:00 PM, right after her concert, due to blunt force trauma [Octavia was found inside the amphitheater, backstage.]

Exhibit 2. Stack of Vinyl Records: Used to murder the victim, Octavia. Bears Vinyl Scratch’s magical aura

Exhibit 3. Time of Concert Showings: Shows the schedule Miss Octavia was on. Confirms that the concert began at 1:30 PM and ended at 4:45 PM

Exhibit 4. Backstage Pass: Owned by Vinyl Scratch and bears her magical aura to further confirm its owner. Evidently was used to access the backstage area to commit the murder

Exhibit 5. Access Records: A log of all the backstage passes used that day. Vinyl Scratch’s pass number was the last one to enter at 4:50 PM

Exhibit 6. Box of Bon Bons shaped like a Cello: Apparently bought by Vinyl Scratch to give to Octavia Melody as a present for Hearts and Hooves day; bears Vinyl Scratch’s aura and found backstage]

Exhibit 7. Receipt: Shows a special order from Bon Bon’s Bon Bons made by Vinyl Scratch for assorted bon bons to be arranged into a box shaped like a cello. Shows that the order came in a month before the current date. Shows that the Defendant had indeed picked up the order on the 14th at 1:00 PM

It is, in fact, confirmed that Vinyl's aura was on that pass. But if a Unicorn had attempted to use it, there would be another aura that'd have been detected by the police! And if it wasn't a Unicorn, there would be DNA!

It matters not of what the passes are composed of, Defense Attorney Edgeworth. The bottom line is as follows: The Defendant's aura is on them, and no other form of Aura, or DNA has been found on said pass.

>>839164

It's quite simple, Your Honor. Passes such as this one are usually laminated. From what research I was able to do, only Unicorns leave behind an aura with items they grasp with their magic. If, say, an Earth Pony or a Pegasus were to use the pass, the only DNA they would leave behind would be saliva, and that can easily be wiped away from a plastic-covered card. Furthermore, it stands to reason that the defendant's aura would be on her own pass. She must have used it dozens, if not hundreds, of times in the past. It still could have been used more recently than that, however.

Alright, Defense Attorney Edgeworth. You are trying to claim that someone other than Vinyl Scratch has used this pass. If you dare challenge the investigation, as well as my witness, I do hope you have evidence to back it up.

Present your evidence to the court that shows, that Vinyl Scratch did not use the pass, and was not the last one to see the Victim alive.

The Prosecution sees no reason for the Detective to answer this question. It is already obvious that the investigative team has done all they could to check for any and all traces of DNA and evidence. They have put every piece of evidence through rigorous testing.

This is something you could figure out yourself, Defense Attorney Edgeworth, if you knew anything about Magical Auras.

All other simply confirm here presence there, which prove nothing should the presence of others being backstage can be confirmed.

Was Vinyl's magic actually strong enough to not only hold an entire stack of vinyl records, but slam them on another Earth Pony (which are known for their incredible strength) and hit her with enough blunt force that she ended up killing Octavia?

As a DJ, she never has to carry actual stacks of them.
They're kept in boxes and alphabetized in folders so that she can neatly pick up one or two at a time.

The situation for her to hold more than two or three packed into a loose stack doesn't exist.

If these vinyl records were strung together with a pretty ribbon, however, someone could have levitated the ribbon and not left aura on the records.

And the ribbon would of packed them together in this stack of blunt death.
And easily been carried out of the room, leaving no evidence.

>>839279
Ah, but if you are implying there was a ribbon, where is it now? You have no proof of it's existence. It is a mere theory.

It's simple to see what happened, really. Vinyl Scratch simply levitated all the records at once. The records were carried simultaneously, with her magic. Although the situation seems improbable, it is not impossible. Has that mentor of yours, Phoenix Wright, taught you nothing? It's as if he didn't pass down the ancient trade of making ridiculous theories off of improbable situations.

There is no feasible way that an Earth pony or Pegasus could have committed the crime. There are no other traces of DNA. As I stated previously, I made sure that each piece of evidence was checked rigorously.

Vinyl Scratch, is Guilty of murder. Accept it, for that is the logical, and conclusive truth.

Vinyl's markings, which are natural to be everywhere, especially if they were in a relationship, don't discount the possibility of these discs being tampered with.

If we consider the Rope-Ribbon-String theory, this enables a pony to grab the stack with its hooves or mouth and use it to kill Octavia.

Improbable.

Kay is right. Perhaps you do have a hearing problem.

What kind of music on on here? If it's Vinyl's music, we can all admit that it's natural for her imprint to be on here. The possibility another pony could have used them, such as a pegasus with its wings, without leaving evidence.

Whether or not these discs are connected to Vinyl in the first place can decide whether or not her imprint on there causes valid suspicion.

The word stack has the connotation of neatly and orderly set in a way that doesn't resemble any haphazard drop.

What the Defense is doing is asking for further examination of the records.
Are there any shattered discs to evidence actual blunt force?

Are they in any particular order?

Why is it that upon collision they were not reduced into a pile?

This doesn't prove a string but it does at the very least a reason to search the records!

Which only serves to prove my point. You can't determine that the juice was properly tested for poison based simply off of the statement that it was tested for poison.

Nor can we determine that nothing was overlooked in the testing of this evidence based solely on the claim that it wasn't. The defense demands to know what tests were performed on this evidence.

In addition, these access records are woefully incomplete. The Defense requests the full record be submitted to the court.

It's the basis of simple debate, Faraday.

You have multiple contentions within your case in order to make sure that the most impacts fall through.

It's not called dodging. It's called "extending your points".

This is a courtroom. Not a crime scene. Please educate yourself before you decide to bring the sass.

OBJECTION!

I was asking for evidence showing that the ribbon existed. Presenting the already existing Vinyl Records, which, in fact, bear the Defendant's aura, is not what I was asking for.

It does not matter if there were shattered discs. It does not matter whether or not they were reduced into a pile.

It seems you forget how the laws of levitation work, Mr, Justice. Magical sciences are quite a conundrum, if I do say so myself. Perhaps you should lecture yourself on them sometime.

The prosecution can confirm that it ran tests to search for hoof markings as well as well as feathers, and saliva. No traces of any kind were found but the aura.

Your Honor, please deliver a penalty to the fools of the Defense.

Octavia Melody and her ensemble are very popular in high society Canterlot.

The Prosecution now releases the updated evidence, the full Access Records.


>Exhibit 5. Access Records: A log of all the backstage passes used that day. Relevant Times are from 1 PM on. At 1 PM, Bulk Biceps, the security guard, had arrived at his post at 1 PM, or so says his pass. He did not leave until after police arrived. At 2 PM Bon Bon entered, presumably leaving the box of chocolates in a safe place for Vinyl. She left at 2:30 PM, and presumably went to go watch the show. At 4:30 PM, Upper Crust’s pass number was registered. She left after the police arrived, at 5:40 PM and was taken in for questioning. Vinyl Scratch’s pass number was the last one to enter at 4:50 PM.

Certainly, Your Honor.

The last time we were in court, we were arguing over the traces of DNA on the Vinyl Records that were used to murder Octavia Melody, the Victim. The Defense claimed the existence of a ribbon that held the stacks together. The Prosecution had demanded evidence, or else they would face a penalty. Since they submitted evidence did not back their claims, only assert new ones, they were subsequently penalized.

Afterwards, I had released the full Access Records into the Court Record, for the sake of the Defense, since they proved it's relevancy.

The Defense may do what it pleases, but it will not get far, I guarantee it.

According to the Detective, Ms. Vinyl Scratch was allegedly the last one to see the victim alive.

According to this access record, however, a pass belonging to an "Upper Crust" was used before the record registered that of Ms. Scratch's pass. You also claim that this Upper Crust did not leave the scene of the crime until after the police arrived.

I do adore how you both worked so hard, grasping at the very little contradiction that I was already aware of.

The hairbrained detective made the assumption that she was delivering the chocolates, without first asking me. Bon Bon was simply there on her own accord, to visit Bulk Biceps, and deliver him some chocolates.

As for Miss Upper Crust, her testimony is unnecessary. She did not see the victim alive, from the times of 4:45 PM to 5:10 PM. She found the body at 5:10 PM, and alerted the police.

The Prosecution sees no reason for her to come to the stand. The Police have questioned her, and she has simply no relevance during the Defendant's appearance backstage.

Hmm, although this seems as though it was a slip up on the Prosecution, I must agree, there does seem like there is nothing of importance here. Your contradictions have been nullified, Defense.

Unless you can call up a witness and explain why you wish for them to come to the stand, I'm afraid I will call my verdict.

By the sound of things, Ms. Upper Crust's presence in the backstage area precedes Ms. Scratch's. Given that she did not leave until the police arrived, her presence on the crime scene is... suspicious to say the least. The defense has an additional witness it wishes to question, but first we would like to hear in more detail exactly what Ms. Upper Crust was doing backstage.

The Police has already questioned her actions during the time of which she was backstage. She was merely spending times with other members of the musical ensemble backstage, in their dressing rooms, since she knew each member well.

The Prosecution wishes to hear of this additional witness.

I'm not sure I understand how a struggle that involves murder with a heavy object, let alone a crime of passion, can go unnoticed by anyone. Upper Crust is far more relevant to this case than you're letting on. The very fact that she found the body begs for a testimony! We won't call for our last witness until absolutely necessary.

She found the body, yes, but simply after merely wanting to check up on her friend. She did not know that Octavia would already have been murdered, naturally. She didn't know it was going to happen at all. If anything, you should call up the Defendant, for they serve more relevancy than Miss Upper Crust. Her location during the time of the murder can even be confirmed by the security guard backstage.

Miss Upper Crust is a high-society pony. Ergo, we can come to the conclusion, that like most high-society ponies, she is a snob, and does not like her time wasted. She specifically requested not to be called up unless absolutely necessary, and currently, the Prosecution would like to spare the mare of wasting not only her time, but our time as well. She has other important events to attend, other ponies to mingle with, etc. There are many other places she would wish to be rather than a Courtroom. The Prosecution currently sees no need to call her up, as there is no doubt or suspicion that is placed on her.

Now the Prosecution demands once more that the Defense tell the Court of their additional witness.

Ah, but that's where you're wrong.

Tell me, who has verified her words and claims? Even as the prosecution claims, there was apparently no one else worthy of mention, apparently not even a guard, backstage that day.

We need her to verify herself. Again, the Defense demands to hear from Upper Crust!

You are now claiming I have said otherwise. Her claims have been backed up by the Security Guard, ergo, there is no reason to doubt her claims, or to suspect her of any crimes.

Now, alternatively, you can provide evidence, showing that, for a fact, that there is something wrong with her claims. Your evidence must be clear and concise, nothing that dodges around the bush, which you use to assert other, connected claims with.

I will now state the Court's opinion.

While the Defense may wish to hear from Miss Upper Crust, we must respect the wishes of those who desire to remain uninvolved in Court proceedings. The Defense suspects Upper Crust, naturally, however, I see no reason to doubt any of her claims at this time. Since there is someone else who can confirm her claims, The Court does not see a reason to suspect Miss Upper Crust.

I am obligated to side with the Prosecution at this time.

The Court would like to hear who this "last witness" is as well.

The Prosecution has the right to cross-examine the witness as well.

The Guard was simply beat to the punch by Upper Crust. There is no doubt in my mind that he was simply slower.

Regardless, I ask that he come forth at once!

The witness himself confirmed that there is only one way in and out of that room. The defendant would not have had enough time to flee the scene without being spotted.

Mr. Edgeworth is correct. I recall that trial very well, as it was my first in this land of talking Equines.

Teleportation was a large subject of argument, and at the end of the day, it was proven that anyone could cast the spell, however, it would be very taxing for them.

I would prefer to see this needless line of inquiry ended.

According to your previous accusations, this was a crime of passion. If that were the case, and she were in immediate danger of discovery, I would think she would be in a panicked state of mind. It seems unlikely she would be able to focus a teleportation spell in such a short time.

You jump to conclusions faster than I can scarf down corn. While we're at it, why don't you get us to submit evidence as to why she's undoubtedly not guilty and give us an unlimited penalty too? Asking the Defense of a task they clearly have no way of answering is equivalent to giving your granddaughter a rifle and asking her to shoot you.

>>840461
(N..not this again... Maybe I should take pictures of my house the next time I come back.)
The Defense has been asked to provide evidence, but it has been performed in the same manner one would ask to provide them with grenades so they can terrorise a 'shopping mall'. The Defense will not be presenting you any evidence until you get your act together. Recall the fact that when Ms. Sonata was up here, her state of mind was broken to such an extent she could not even cast an illumination spell to light up the area. Teleporting out of a room after Vinyl who had just killed the love of her life like that would be theoretically, metaphorically, literally, poetically and quasi-dimentionally impossible.

Chief Prosecutor Edgeworth has made his points. The Defense pointed out a theory, and Mr. Edgeworth simply asked for evidence for them to support their claims. It is very standard procedure.

OBJECTION!

>Teleporting out of a room after Vinyl who had just killed the love of her life like that would be theoretically, metaphorically, literally, poetically and quasi-dimentionally impossible.


But what if Vinyl Scratch did not harbor the feelings for Octavia that she really seemed to have? What if the events of that day were just an elaborate ruse?

Suppose that Vinyl Scratch had been cheated on, and she found out about this prior to Heart's and Hooves day. She would definitely be planning some form of revenge.

It's easy to see how Vinyl Scratch could have possibly done this. You say it's impossible, and I have just proved that it isn't.

>The Defense pointed out a theory, and Mr. Edgeworth simply asked for evidence for them to support their claims.
Where in there did anyone state they wished to? What if they don't want to support their claims anymore? May I remind you that all the evidence currently submitted in no way points to Vinyl being able to cast a spell? In fact, none of this evidence points to spells regardless of whatever way you look at it.

Let's assume you blatantly ignore the fact it was a theory and the Defense had no intention of proving it beyond stating it. Where exactly where you expecting the evidence to materialise out of? I will go and get it.

OBJECTION!

You claimed this to be a crime of passion. Now you claim it to be premeditated? Then answer me this, Miles. If you claim this crime was premeditated and that Vinyl teleported away to avoid detection, then why would she bother using her backstage pass and leaving a record of her presence on the crime scene? If she didn't want to get caught, why would she not teleport into the backstage area as well? No doubt she could have easily teleported into the backstage area early enough in the day to give herself time to rest.

That is why this case is even in Court, for I have incriminating evidence against the defendant. I can present any piece of evidence, and show how it could prove my claims.

>He's got the right idea going on. How do you expect us to provide evidence if you know yourself it doesn't exist?


The Defense has been able to provide evidence that previously wasn't in the Court Record before. I assumed you could have had something that you could not submit to the court yet. After all, you did earn an extra day, for further investigations.

The prosecution submits the following evidence.

>Love Letters: Love letters written by Octavia to a secret lover.


These were found in Vinyl Scratch’s place of residence. The letters are dated from months ago, clearly showing that Vinyl had tampered with the mail, intercepted the letters, and found out she was being cheated on. This fueled her desire for revenge.

This changes the case from a crime of passion, to a premeditated murder. Clearly, Vinyl Scratch, as the Prosecution had stated before, had been cheated on.

There is still the logical problem. Refer to Gregory's statement here.

If she didn't want to get caught, why would she not teleport into the backstage area as well? No doubt she could have easily teleported into the backstage area early enough in the day to give herself time to rest.


Vinyl left a very, very obvious trail as she assumingly committed the crime. If your evidence says it's premeditated, why would she allow this to happen, Mr. Edgeworth?

This is not the Prosecution's concern. Evidence outweighs motive. It's a classic rule of the Courtroom, one I expected attorneys to know of.

The Evidence exists, and ergo, it points to Vinyl Scratch being the criminal. It only solidifies the case against her. The logical fallacies of the defendant are not of this Court's concern.

That's not what I'm implying, Mr. Edgeworth. Your evidence sets Vinyl's motive in place by telling us "The victim was cheating on the Defendant". However, if we are to assume this, there isn't a reason for the Defendant's sloppy entrance to murder. The evidence you have presented in this case serves no purpose as to solidify and change her motive into a more incriminating form, which you have so elegantly stated here;

>Evidence outweighs motive.


Is there any other evidence that concretely points her to the crime? You said yesterday you would re-examine the details of the murder.

Such information is unnecessary! The Defense is simply asking questions to stall for time while they think of other ways to approach this case!

>>845284
It may be true that the traces of the Defendant would normally be there, assuming they belonged to her. However, it is the murder weapon, and as the Prosecution had proved on the first day, there was no way for anyone else to have used the disks to commit the crime.

If you have contradicting evidence, please submit it to the Court, though I will ask Mi'Lord to offer a strike against the Defence, should they flounder.

You didn't shut it down so much as the Defense gave up on it. While true there isn't any other evidence pointing to the murder as much as the murder weapon itself or any evidence the Defense can present to rebuff, seeing the Prosecution use it so affirmatively is a bit confusing.

Despite that, we're going to continue on whatever line we were just on. Before we continue, we'd just like to confirm with Mr. Edgeworth that there is absolutely no further evidence to present at this time.

There, in fact, is indeed one Witness who can place the Defendant at the scene of the crime. During the re-examination of details, one of our witnesses has spoken to the Prosecution of more details that they saw.

However, there is no need to call up such a witness. The Prosecution's claims are solid.

The Prosecution's Claims are valid, yes. But there is still room for error! Room for doubt! There is also no proof that this witness saw the Defendant! I demand that the witness, whoever they may be, testify to the court about what they saw, so the Defense may compare the evidence and testimony!

The Defense would like to call up the one mare who, according to the Court Record, found the body of the deceased! Miss Upper Crust!

Not really, we just kinda brb equestria'd there because we had no idea what was going on

W..well, uh...

What we were going to say was this.
The Prosecution has presented this;
>Exhibit 8. Love Letters
>An assortment of love letters that were found in Vinyl Scratch’s room. The contents of the letter describe a secret affair between Octavia and a secret lover. These letters were apparently intercepted by Vinyl. The dates on the letters range from October and December of 2028.

The sender of these letters has been left anonymous by the Prosecution, as the identity of the mysterious lover is apparently irrelevant. If the Prosecution is going to use these to present a possibility that the attack was premeditated, we would like the Prosecution to give us the name of this anonymous individual. The Prosecution cannot use the argument that they prove no relevance to the case in hand if the letters by comparison do.

We also request the actual text of the letters be revealed to the court. There could be information critical to the case at hand inside them.

"Dear Bon Bon, I do not know how much longer we can keep this going on. I fear Vinyl may be growing suspicious of how much time I spend with you, of how much of my life I now keep in the dark from her. I also grow weary of you. It seems that no matter how much I may write to you, seldom do you ever write back. I am beginning to fear the worst, from the both of you. I love both you and Vinyl, but I don't know what to say or do. I need you to be supportive of me, Bon Bon. Please, speak to me as soon as you can, in person.


With love,
Octavia Melody"

>7. She quickly teleported away as soon as she saw me, causing a little flash that blinded me for a split second.


You claimed that the defendant teleported away as soon as she saw you. So why are you suddenly claiming that she never saw you? And this raises another contradiction:

>5. The Guard was lagging behind me, and I arrived barely a moment before him


Mr. Bulk Biceps testified that he saw no one either in or exiting the room. Now that we know the door would have been open and the guard close at your heels before Vinyl made her supposed escape, he should have noticed her teleporting away as well.

The witness has simply made a mistake in her words. I shall allow her to correct her own error. However, I will raise this point. Why does it matter if the Defendant saw Miss Upper Crust or not? The facts still remain the same. Vinyl Scratch murdered Octavia Melody with a stack of records.

However, the second contradiction you bring up, is one where I must interject.

Bulk Biceps, as I'm sure you've seen, is not exactly the most intellectually advanced pony in the world. He is definitely more brawn than brain. However, his testimony stand true. He did not notice anyone in or exiting the room. The Prosecution asserts that he was, as Upper Crust has stated, "lagging behind" and that he arrived a moment later. He did not see anyone, because by the time he arrived, Vinyl Scratch was already gone.

She said these things very loudly, I heard them across the hall. It was 5 PM when I reached the room, and according to the information of the case that was already established, she was already dead by then, and Vinyl was leaving.

The argument was, indeed, already over. She simply was too focused on casting the teleportation spell, as it does require immense concentration, as I'm aware the Defense pointed out yesterday.

Why is such a thing needed? Are you trying to imply a forgery here, Miss Shameimaru? Even if these letters are in anyway illegitimate, that will not change the very fact that Vinyl Scratch is the murderer. All other evidence points to it, and even if it would be hard for her to concentrate in a crime of passion, it is possible that Vinyl Scratch would still have managed to teleport, just not too far. In a crime of passion, she could have, perhaps, left backstage, and proceeded out of the concert building as usual instead of teleporting home.

Tell me one reason as to why we need this test. One reason that you suspect forgery, or any other forms of illegitimacy.

Dear, dear, Mr. Edgeworth. Always so defensive when it comes to forgery. One day, someone may get the wrong idea.

I'm not pressing for forgery at all. In fact, what I mean to ask of the court is simply that there was no further information presented with those letters. With that, there could be evidence on those letters that isn't in literate form. Hence the DNA bit.

I agree entirely. Vinyl could have teleported away and used the vinyl records on the floor to batter poor old Octavia. However, that isn't related nor relevant in any way as to why I ask for a test to be run on the letters. It's not a question of forgery or illegitimacy more of you haven't done something yet.

Let us take a look at the court record.

>Exhibit 1. Autopsy Report

>Octavia was hit in the back of the head; death was instantaneous at exactly 5:00 PM, right after her concert, due to blunt force trauma. (Octavia was found inside the amphitheater, backstage)

>Exhibit 2. Stack of Vinyl Records

>Used to murder the victim, Octavia. Bears Vinyl Scratch’s magical aura.

The Prosecution would have us believe that using these two pieces of evidence, it's completely conclusive evidence that points to Vinyl Scratch's act of murdering Octavia Melody. However, this is not the case.


>Exhibit 2. Stack of Vinyl Records

>Used to murder the victim, Octavia. Bears Vinyl Scratch’s magical aura.

This weapon was not in fact used to murder the victim. A set of Vinyl Records would have been perfectly capable of murdering Octavia. In fact, it would have caused some pretty gruesome blood splatters if it hit her at the correct angle. That alone, however, is completely improbable because this could only happen ifvinyl records are kept in boxes.

>Exhibit 2. Stack of Vinyl Records

>Stack
Had you have used a stack of records that wasn't in a box, it would have basically been the same as trying to stab someone with the edge of a 18cm tall CD . Not effective. You also can't use it to just crush her, because the Polyvinyl Chloride mixture only weighs about 1.3g per centimeter cubed, and the matieral it's made out of would weigh something around 5kg if kept in a stack, which is about the weight of both of my shoes. Even in a smashing method, it'd probably just make you mad.

Even if the Prosecution does manage to argue that she somehow managed to kill her with this stack, there is a definite possibility even if Vinyl hit her with the stack of disks she isn't the murderer.
There is a possibility the vinyl stack didn't actually kill Octavia.
Recall back to Upper Crust's testimony. She claims that teleportation;
>it is a common spell that nearly every educated unicorn knows.

If you can recall from that day when Mr. Wright first appeared in Equestria you will know teleportation requires three things; a clear mental image, magic talent and concentration. However, this doesn't mean without one of these things YOU CANNOT TELEPORT.

If in fact "every educated unicorn knows it", we can assume from this she was more able to cast this spell than your average pony with the knowledge of the spell, as a unicorn's spellcasting skill is one of their racial benefactors and would aid her greatly in her social standing. Meaning, it's more than likely if she wanted to she could have cast the spell twice in a row. Also know how teleportation works - It doesn't move you somewhere, it switches the location of two places. This ensures that there isn't overlapping atoms which would just cause a titanic explosion.
Upper Crust was an educated pony who could cast teleportation twice in a row, which switches the locations of two places.
This leads me onto my next point.

>Exhibit 6. Box of Bon Bons shaped like a Cello

>Apparently bought by Vinyl Scratch to give to Octavia Melody as a present for Hearts and Hooves day; bears Vinyl Scratch’s aura and found backstage.
>Exhibit 5. Access Records
>At 2 PM Bon Bon entered, presumably leaving the box of chocolates in a safe place for Vinyl. She left at 2:30 PM, and presumably went to go watch the show.

Bon Bon has in fact visited backstage - she was there to deliver the Bon Bons you see in Octavia's room. This means she had in fact visited Octavia's room and knew exactly where she is. Keep this knowledge in mind.
Bon Bon knew where Octavia's room was.
Take these all into account, with the knowledge that Mr. Gumshoe has recently given us.
>Upper Crust's aura is on the letter.

File: 1414311843666.png (178.54 KB, 640x480, ayaobjection.png)

>>845559
I hypothesise that Upper Crust teleported Bon Bon into the room Octavia was in, or at the very least near Octavia's room where she wasn't detected. If in fact the two were in cahoots with one another, Bon Bon could have arranged to be at a place Upper Crust was intimately familiar with. This would allow Upper Crust to simply switch the position of that location with the air inside Octavia's dressing room, or anywhere near it in a position that she would not be found in. Upper Crust has in fact stated Octavia and her were on good terms, it's not unlikely Upper Crust had visited her room in advance and made a good mental image of the location. When Upper Crust and Bon Bon made this plan, they had a plan to synchronise, for when Bon Bon committed murder Upper Crust would have simply had to teleport her back out again. She then doubled back to Octavia's room and checked her body, removing all evidence Bon Bon was there except for the box of Bon Bons that would incriminate Vinyl. Then, she left abruptly to meet up with the real perpetrator, Bon Bon, and leave to set up an appropriate alibi.
This is my hypothesis.
1.) The stack of vinyl disks would have taken more than an in-the-moment slam to kill Octavia. At the most, a bad concussion.
2.) Upper Crust definitely knew who Bon Bon was as her aura was found on the letters between Bon Bon and Octavia. In fact, she probably placed the letters in Vinyl's house, further incriminating her.
3.) Bon Bon left at 2:30 into the outside, cementing her alibi. There would have been no way to get in except teleportation.
4.) Vinyl simply teleported out as she was afraid. She must have had some sort of way of realising she was being framed. Upper Crust indirectly caused these murders so she rushed into the room to make sure everything had gone to plan.

Using these, it must mean Bon Bon is responsible for the murder of Octavia Melody, Upper Crust is responsible for aiding her, and Vinyl Scratch is Not Guilty!

TAKE THAT!!

Now now, I must admit, this is quite the logical theory here. But I'm afraid, Miss Shameimaru, that you are wrong.

>vinyl records are kept in boxes.

We never had stated that it was not in a box. We had never stated there wasn't a box, admittedly, we never stated there was, but that was because we assumed simply submitting the records would suffice.

Now, here is one flaw in your theory. What is the murder weapon, if it was not the records? Suppose that there was not a box. What killed Miss Melody, and how? Death was instantaneous, mind you.

Without that piece of evidence, your theory does not hold water.

Speaking of evidence...

You lack it!

You simply have absolutely no evidence that proves, without a doubt, that all of these actions occurred. Where is your proof that Upper Crust framed Vinyl Scratch? Where is your proof that Vinyl Scratch knew she was framed, if you can prove that she was?

Upper Crust's aura may be on the letter, but that proves nothing! She could have simply seen the letter at some other point in time. Perhaps she was with Octavia at the time, and she read the letter? There are many theories that can be derived from YOUR logic, Miss Shameimaru, alas, it is a baseless one.

The Unlimited Penalty. Your Honor, if you'd please, give the Defense the penalty, should they not be able to prove that Bon Bon is the murderer. That Upper Crust was responsible for this.

This has been a waste of the court's time since the first day of trial. This has dragged on for far too long. Defense, either give up here, or present evidence, which I highly doubt you have.

The Defense must submit the murder weapon, the proof that Bon Bon committed the crime, and the proof that Upper Crust was involved as well.

Simple. Many things can kill you if you're hit hard enough with them. I can drive a cup into your skull at mach 1. But that's not what we're talking about here.

Simple fact is, if Bon Bon did it, you'll probably never find the murder weapon now. Probably at the bottom of a cliff somewhere. As for your "died instantly", simple. Vinyl hit Octavia which didn't kill her, and then Bon Bon smashed her in the same spot hard enough to kill her instantly.
Satisfied?

>You simply have absolutely no evidence that proves, without a doubt, that all of these actions occurred.

Exhibit one single-handedly proves that she died instantly, proving my point above.

Exhibit 6 proves that Bon Bon had earlier known the location of Octavia Melody's room to murder herr.

>Exhibit 7. Receipt

Exhibit 7 proves that these Bon Bons were in fact brought.

>Exhibit 8. Love Letters

>Exhibit 9. Letter
Exhibit 8 and 9 proves that Bon Bon had a motive to kill Octavia and also proves that Upper Crust knew about this.


>You claim that the murder weapon is not the murder weapon. You claim that the murder is someone else.

Didn't want further reading, but if you really want it, I guess there's nothing else to do. Did I mention I really like Science for some reason?
Take a look at the stacks of vinyl.

>Exhibit 2. Stack of Vinyl Records

>Used to murder the victim, Octavia. Bears Vinyl Scratch’s magical aura.
They were kept in a stack, not a box.
I'd like to point out that ponies are actually about half our size. Their heads however are the same length as ours, which means a vinyl disk is about half the size of them too.
Now, there's 1KG in a N. Let's say it takes about... uh, 10N.
That would require you to swing the box about 20 times stronger than the force of gravity.
Now, assuming this stack is 60 centimeters tall and bound in wrapping, and had a length of 35 centimeters and a thickness of 3 millimeters, the entire stack alone would have weighed 630 grams.
For a figure of how heavy that is, it's about the weight of a 20 pack of toilet paper, perhaps. Or maybe two bags of peanuts. Heavy, no? Real capable of murder.
In short, not only do you have to swing the box basically hard enough to cause an earthquake to kill someone, it also probably weighs only slightly more than Mr. Edgeworth's head.

Unfortunately for you, Mr. Edgeworth, either all the evidence backs me up or has no relevance to either of our cases. Bad form.
What's next?

>>845566

You are still unable to place Bon Bon at the crime scene. This is all theoretical. Each piece of evidence you have shown has already been used against you by the prosecution. You can not place Bon Bon at the crime scene at the very specific time of 5 PM to give her her instantaneous death. Not only that, but even though I am no scientist, I doubt the sciences behind your calculations. I still believe that the murder weapon that the Prosecution submitted could be still legitimate. I'm sorry, but the Prosecution's claims are upheld, and your's are not. Despite the sciences behind this, Vinyl Scratch is still the only one who could have done this. You can not prove that Bon Bon had teleported in and out, or anyone else, for that matter. The Prosecution proved Vinyl Scratch's appearance at the crime scene, at the specified time.

Because you can not submit a murder weapon, I do admit, that this looks bad for both sides, however, the Prosecution's argument has been constant, while the Defense has been practically grasping at straws. You tried, and you tried well, Miss Shameimaru, but I'm afraid this is over. This is the final day of trial, and I have heard various testimonies. I have listened to all of the arguments of the court room, and I am nearly inclined to side with the Defense, however, the lack of strong evidence still makes me weary. I'm afraid without the crucial evidence, it all goes down to argumentative and debating skills. Who has had the strongest, most consistent argument? That is the question that I have the answer to.


I will only deliver half the penalty, meaning, The Defense now only has 2 and a half marks left, not that it matters too much.

If no one has any further objections, I will announce my verdict

It is simple, Your Honour! The chocolates were poisoned! Never once did we question if the box was opened or not! If the box was opened, and Octavia Melody ate one of the chocolates, then it is not hard to assume that she may have died from poisoning instead!

Ergo, the Prosecution indicts both Vinyl Scratch, and Bon Bon of murder! They were accomplices from the start!

>>845572

The Prosecution asserts that there was a rather high-tense love triangle between the three mares. Eventually, a plot was formed to get rid of the one causing the most problems, Octavia Melody. This explains why Vinyl Scratch was in the possession of Octavia's letters, because Bon Bon showed them to her!

Bon Bon had poisoned the chocolates, and Vinyl Scratch committed the assault! It was a deadly two-punch combo.

The Prosecution, now rests.

Indeed, it was quite a surprising revelation. I did not think that Bon Bon would commit a crime. She was already in court once before as a defendant. However, using the Defense's logic, there was only one true outcome. I have met with other High Society ponies, worry not. Upper Crust is the fine example of the stereotype, however.

I'm afraid this case is now being appealed to a higher court. I please ask that the Defense and Prosecution remain the attorneys assigned to this case. This is a very unique case. Due to interrogations going nowhere, the Prosecution has insisted on finding the truth the only other way possible, through trial.
