New hint (after the teaser):
"in The Dusk beware....... http://www.murdered.com/evidence #thehardestcasetosolve"



As the other thread doesn't get much attention, I hope this one will cause more GAFfers helping us here.

http://murdered.com
http://murdered.com/evidence

The first PW is "ronan" and it gives us the following picture called evidence.jpg:
Afterwards the murdered twitter feed asked "where am I" and so some of us in the old thread found the solution by mapping the phone number seen on the evidence.jpg to the phonetic alphabet:


The solution was Salem-MA-USA - so the next PW for the evidence prompt was "salemmausa" which gives you a zip containing an audio file:

https://soundcloud.com/ekim123456/exhibit-b

Now we are stuck with the next part of the puzzle.
The Twitter feed asks:
"What is hidden between the light and the dark?"

The answer to this question will be most likely unlock another download on the evidence page.
We have checked several stuff, like the history of Salem and modified the evidence.jpg and audio file. I thought they mean infrared or UV light and used the light frequencies to filter the related audio frequency in the mp3... but it did nothing.

Other infos:

These are facilities seen in the evidence.jpg:
Sea Breeze Consignment
Lighthouse Banking
Harmony Grove Antiques
Hook & Lure --> Bait & Tackle shop (which's door is ajar/open)


Salem

- HP Lovecraft was very inspired by this city
- lots witch burning took place here
- there is a Harmony Grove Cemetery (see above the Harmony Grove Antiques)

Audio file

- If you play it back very slow you can hear church bells

So, we have those pixellated squares called darknoise and lightnoise. As i'm not that kind of geek, what would you suggest we should do with them?
Don't know. I opened them in GIMP... let's see what I can do with them.

Tried that. Nothing notable as expected (those pics come with firefox)
So, again, it was just a coincidence. We're being directed to that page though. Have you tried playing a bit with that picture?

Also: We can definitely see something in those puddles, but it's just reflections of the buildings and streetlamps

EDIT:

background check could be on:

the files
the picture
the murdered man
the town
the stores in the first evidence
the mp3

I think we can see the door of the bait shop.

Nice trailer, now I'm definitely interested in the game.

EDIT: the answer to that last riddle was pretty underwhelming though :/

If this is an in game shot, then looking at the building etc I have a feeling it's a PS4 game, might be announced at the Playstation meeting?

Anyway does anyone else think Rockstar delayed GTA 5 to September because they are also planning to make a PS4/Xbox 720 version for when the consoles might release in September?

Kagari already said it's going to be current gen only. I trust him.

Background check most definitely is the new background page.

You can see letters T R A D E U S in the background.

Trade Us? Who knows.

tradeus as password doesn't work btw :p
It was solved a few posts up. It's not an R but an H and the answer is The Dusk. The evidence is the trailer for the game.

Ahh shit, I thought it's an E instead of K. I'm blind :(

I guess this is it then. They are revealing these clues for others that have not picked up the trailer.
nah. they already posted the trailer... makes no sense to me.

There is a hidden message in the German press release. The highlighted letters in the text spell "in the dusk beware". In addition, there are links to the official Facebook, Twitter and Youtube accounts. Is this something new?
