From here, you can use Holmes’ deduction screen to begin to piece together who the culprit is behind the attempt on Holmes’ life.
At the end of the investigation there are three main suspects, including Orson Wilde, “The Dart” and Jack Cole. Depending on how you feel about the three suspects depends on which outcome you might go with. However, the culprit is Percy “The Dart” Flemming.
