Five men, whose names are Bob Edison, Tom Stevenson, Marty Brown, Jim Davis, and John Alberts were being questioned by the police for a crime committed in their local golf house.

Other detectives have already investigated, they have questioned the suspects, the witnesses, and people who know the suspects and they have collected physical evidence from the crime scene. They have collected the following 14 clues, but have not been able to solve the crime. Therefore, they have called in the world's greatest detective: YOU, who must now examine the clues and solve the crime for them and find the culprit.

No two suspects have the same hair colour, weight, height, wife's first name, or colour shoes.
The suspect who has red hair weighs 140 pounds.
