By Herschel Cozine
Philip was the murderer. He had poisoned Montague's brandy with an untraceable poison, hoping the death would seem like a heart
attack. When he found that Montague was unconscious but still alive, and afraid Montague would know he had poisoned his brandy,
Philip stabbed him with the letter opener while Andrew was out of the room. Since the only part of Montague's body visible to the others
were his legs, the others would not know that Montague had not been stabbed before he was discovered.
