Not relevent to the answer (that might be how they narrowed it to 2 suspects, but I don't know for sure).

You said DTH summoned both of them. Did they both show up?

By 20 degrees? Hell no. About as much as a cloud.


Per NASA:
it would probably only be 3/4 or 1/2 the maximum day-night temperature difference.


Now it wouldn't be unreasonable or unlikely, in the hottest days of summer, to have the high daytime temperature in the high 90's, and the nighttime temperature to be in the low 70's. 3/4 of that would be around 20 degrees. Is 20 degrees the most likely temperature drop? Probably not, but it wouldn't be improbable.
"How is it that hardly any major religion has looked at science and concluded, 'This is better than we thought! The Universe is much bigger than our prophets said, grander, more subtle, more elegant. God must be even greater than we dreamed'? Instead they say, 'No, no, no! My god is a little god, and I want him to stay that way.'" - Carl Sagan

Was it one of the suspects who were arrested or someone else who turned up at the office?

Hey, I don't remember this case! I think you've mistaken me with that two-bit poser, Sherlock.

Was one of them the worker for a farm that he stole the sack from, which was labelled?

Did the guilty party have glass cuts?

No, this is Inspector Turtle Holmes. Perhaps you are related?

Nothing was labelled.

No glass cuts.
