It is always the little things that end up getting to us, solving a problem and discovering the truth. When people try to cover up mistakes, they often miss a minor detail which ends up leading to the error. For example, in many of the mystery TV shows and movies the smallest detail leads to the real truth. In an old ‘Matlock” episode, the first time a man was accused of murdering his partner the evidence, although inaccurate, led to his conviction. He was an exemplary prisoner and once he received parole he was suddenly attacked and he defended himself. Of course, then he had to be tried again. Matlock asked to defend him to see if he could right the previous wrong. In the end it was the little things that proved the man was innocent both times. Another partner, who was having an affair with the wife of the original man that passed. It was heavily raining so no neighbors could hear any shots. He disposed of him and framed the innocent man. This was all established when Matlock recognized that when the man’s wife came home and found her husband, the guilty man appeared almost instantly soaking wet. When he heard the wife pull into the driveway, he slipped out the back door forgetting his umbrella. Then he walked around to the front door. She was so distraught it never occurred to her that her lover was soaked. Once again, the writers were excellent, and it was the little things such as he was soaked and then left with his umbrella that tipped Matlock off. It’s always true in almost everything. As teens, anyone who slipped out a window would always end up being caught. They may have been quiet, or left their room as if they were asleep, but parents aren’t stupid.
