Geocache Description:

This is the second strange case that you (Detective Smith),  have worked on.  This first can be found here.


This is a multi part puzzle that opens up a new part of the story with each puzzle solved. Good luck! (The co-ords above mean nothing)


You are Detective Smith; ever since that crazy inventors case you’ve been getting calls from around the state to help out with other strange crimes.  But nothing seemed to pique your interest as much as the original case had until this morning, when your old friend Brody gave you a call…  

You meet him at the hospital; during a routine patrol a beat cop had found a man wandering around the industrial district.  He was bleeding very badly and had collapsed into his arms.  Now he was laying in a hospital bed clinging to life.  As the nurse attends to the patient Brody hands you the two pieces of evidence that triggered his call to you.  He tells you that the man has no ID, he hasn’t spoken a word and that he had to pry the evidence from the man’s hands. 

“A crossword puzzle and a broken remote control?  Now I see why you called me” you say. “This man had obviously too much time on his hands…Is this really all you have?”  Brody takes the crossword puzzle over to the man and asks him rather loudly, who he is.  The man opens his one good eye, stares at the crossword and says “I don’t know…Help me!”  He makes a grab for the crossword and repeats the words “Help me, Help me! Who am I??”.  Brody looks at you “ That’s why I called you, take a look at the crossword and tell me this isn’t right up your alley”

You look at the crossword, it looks…interesting.  “But what does the remote control have to do with this?” you ask.  Brody shows the remote to the patient who almost pulls himself out of bed trying to grab it.  He has to be restrained by the nurse. “It’s got to have something to do with something, right?” Brody replies. “Everything usually does” you say smiling.


You notice that there is a handwritten note on the back of the crossword, it looks like instructions of some sort. 

Let’s take a look at this crossword;



Could this website somehow be linked to Brody's mystery man?  What does the remote control have to do with it?  You take both the crossword and the remote control and tell Brody to stay with the patient and that you'll look into the puzzle. 

FTF Prize:

Good Luck!
