Holmes enlightens Watson that there are two newdevelopments. Firstly, he knows that Charles knew themurderer well as he had made an appointment with the personat Boscombe pool. This can be seen when Charles said theword ‘Cooee’ to call his friend.The next day, Holmes and Watson meet Inspector Lestrade at Boscombe Pool to look for clues at the murder site. Lestrade informs Holmes and Watson than John may notlive long as he is seriously ill since the murder of CharlesMcCarthy. He also reveals to them that Turner and Charleswere old friends and as such, Charles did not pay any rent toJohn even though he lived on Turner’s estate.Upon investigation, Holmes discovers the footprints belonging to James and the gamekeeper, Mr Moran. Watson,however, draws his attention to another clue – some strangefootprints with square toes, made by some special boots. Thissets Holmes thinking and asks Watson to leave him alone withhis thoughts. Holmes realises that there are more importantclues at the murder site that would most probably lead him tothe solution if the case.
