Goofs

At the trial Ben explains that the victim was looking at the digital counter upside down, reading the numerals '337' as the letters 'LEE', to explain the clue that he left. However, the victim was laying on his stomach when he reached up to stop the tape counter, which means he could not have been upside down. See more »
