Let's All Play Sherlock Holmes: Consulting Detective - The Two Lions (Update #1)

I spent the first three minutes of this video going through the differences between the original versions and the remastered version. The first visitation starts around the 3:15 mark. The notebook, from now onwards, will be written by myself.

Notebook (New clues will be spoilered.)

1. The body of Stephen Lyons, a First Officer for Aberdeen Shipping, was found shortly after 9 AM yesterday morning in St. George's Road. He was witnessed being led in the direction where the body was found by two women and a man, his body had been robbed of two gold earrings which he had been seen to have been wearing. There were no wounds on the body, and it is supposed that an overdose of some drug has been administered.

2. Two lions, both male, were found shot to death in Hyde Park in the early hours of this morning.

3. Watson paid a visit to Sir Meeks at St. Batholomew's Hospital. Sir Meeks confirmed that drugs were involved in Lyons death. He clarified that it was a poison that affected the respitory system and had turned his lips and fingertips blue, it had also given his eyes a distinctive yellow tint. He believes that the drug is exotic as he has never encountered it before.

4. The detectives visited the offices of the Aberdeen Navigation Company. Lyons had been employed there for two years and it's been discovered that before his death, irregularites had arisen in his paperwork. Objects had been discovered missing that were considered securely locked and when questioned, Lyons was very evasive with his answers. It's also believed that Lyons was carrying unassigned cargo for personal profit, following their recent passage on the Rhine(?).

5. Watson spoke to Lyons landlady who confirmed that he is dead. He owed her two months back rent but he told her that he would be paying up, plus several months in advance, come Tuesday.

6. The detectives met with Roy Slade at Hengler's Circus, who confirmed that the two lions killed were part of his circus show. Barry O'Neill was the owner of the two lions who is currently a patient at St. Thomas' Hospital after an accident involving a falling create while helping to unload a ship. O'Neill and his wife are reportedly the only two people who could handle the lions safely. O'Neill's wife is currently staying at Carroll O'Neill's residence.

7. Watson visited Mr. Murray at Scotland Yard who was in a rush to leave. Even though Murray was on his way home, he reported that he didn't really have any real evidence to share with us. Lyons was found with undamaged clothes, no personal effects and with traces of sea salt which could indicate that he was a sailor.
