The photos of my bag were followed by this picture of part of the bag... together with part of a little fat foot:
Now whose foot is that?
Me: Who was playing with Mummy's handbag just now? (Kiddos have been warned not to as I don't want important stuff to go missing)
SE: Erm, dunno
Me: Ha, I see there's one photo here with somebody's foot. Now... whose foot looks like this?
SE: I think, Jo-jo
So I made a show of checking the photo against our respective feet. My foot? No, too big. JE's? No, too big. SE's? Ah-hah!
Me: Heyy! I think this is Su Ern's foot! Su Ern, did you play with Mummy's handbag? How come there's a picture of your foot next to my bag??
After a few moments of trying to evade, she came up with a master stroke.
SE: Jo-jo took the picture.
After thinking a while, I realised her testimony was brilliant. It threw doubt on the case, there was really no absolute proof of the criminal's identity. Case closed for lack of evidence. Suspect walks off scot-free.
OK thanks, bye
