Is it a love child between Jane and Fred?

Did the blood type on the "blood" award that connected the dots?

So what you are saying is that Fred is Flora's dad and they were kanoodeling - she donated the blood because he needed transfusions to stay alive.


Not sure there's a question there. Yes before the - , no after.

Wait, is Flora Fred's daughter? Or just Fred's first wife's daughter (from a tryst out of their marriage)?


Yes. No.

Great question.

No.

Partly.

Was Flora given up for adoption before Fred and the late Mrs Fred were married?

Is there an insurance scam here somewhere?

Did the late Mrs Fred know her daughter before she died?

Yes.

No, but I wish I had thought of that.

Briefly.

Did Fred know Flora was his daughter?

Did Fred know he had a daughter?

Do they share a blood type? If so, is their blood type rare?

No.

Then why the hell was he arrested for incest?

Did Fred have anything to do with his first wife's death?

Accidentally committing a crime doesn't mean a crime isn't committed. Or, if that doesn't mesh with local incest laws, then I never said the charges stuck, only that he was arrested and Flora was admitted to the hospital and treated for shock.

All of that dodges a bigger question: how does a guy accidentally marry his own daughter?

Did Fred have anything to do with his first wife's death?


No. He wasn't around when it happened.

Right, I get that... ignorance of the law ≠ innocence and all. I guess when you admitted that he was arrested for incest, I assumed it was intentional and/or aggravated incest. And not that I've disgusted myself with that thought...

Can you confirm that the former Mrs Fred was receiving blood from her estranged daughter?

Do the the rearranged/changed books on the bookshelf have any relevance?

Flora never gave blood to Mrs. Fred.

No. Total red herring.

So basically this is a reverse Oedipus story.

I hadn't thought of it that way, but in a sense.
