He found some clues which could be used to save James McCarthy. For example, he found the footsteps, the cigar and even the murder weapon, which was the stone.
Then, he met a few important people to get more information about the case. He met Alice turner in his hotel room. Alice told him again that James was innocent.

At the end of the story, James McCarthy was found not guilty and he was released.
