Sherlock Holmes was called in the solve a baffeling crime. Rich man, Harlan
Boyd had been murderered. Someone had shoved a butcher knife through his heart.
There were six suspects. Adam Wright---his business partner. Faye Boyd--his wife.
Danny Ray Boyd--his son. Jasmine Ryker--his daughter. Jack
Ryker--Jasmine's husband...and Donna Boyd--Harlan's sister. All six of them
hated Harlan and didn't hide the fact they were glad he was dead, but they
claim none of them were there! None of them had an alibi to back them up!
Holmes knew one of them was lying.
Holmes examined the body, and the knife. He searched the room for clues.
There was papers scattered everywhere, as well as books, some open, some
closed,even money! There was a partially typed page in the typewriter, but
it wasn't nothing but gibberish. It said zczj sfkbng ikooc jd. Near the
typewriter was handwritten revisions to his will plus an open ledger with
several pages missing. Lying on the floor beside the table was Harland's
thick-lens glasses......
After a minute or two to reflect on the evidence, Holmes pointed at one of the
six suspects and said, "You killed Harland Boyd!"

Who did Holmes pick and why?
There are two clues and the thing that will help you most it right in front of you.

This something I got out of a book called Ten Minute Mysteries. There was no mention of a
butler. There are two clues that solves the murder. I added to it "the thing that will help you
the most is right in front of you!"

Ok I think I have it, he was trying to type "Adam Wright Killed me" but he didn't have is reading glasses so he was hitting the key above the correct letter on the key board.
