Update: It's Meow or Never is the winner!
The answer is: "The half eaten apple was still white."
Solve the following:
Shadow arrived at the hospital to find that Sam Slug, who had been in a coma, died moments ago while under police custody. Officer Bob Slack, who was assigned to guard the door, swore that no one had entered the room since a nurse had last checked in on him some two hours earlier. Aside from an autopsy, Shadow ordered that the hospital room be combed for clues.
The only unusual thing found was a waste can containing crumpled pieces of paper, a tongue depressor, a half eaten apple, and an empty cigarette pack. Other than that, everything seemed normal.
After the search, Shadow suggested to Officer Slack that he was lying, and that someone had indeed been in the room in the last half hour.
What caused Shadow to draw such a conclusion?
