These numbers were then used as a seed for a standard police detective guide for questions about murder. Here's what I derived:
The killer's motive was 281c18d24dd229a42778bd9c1e86f6231acce9ff
The killer's means were 8f99b847de7cd4eceef5654e95b5aba67b0a5926
The killer's current location is 954230fccc44beccfc2abaf0053a1077de73fd02
The killer's most recent haiku was
big fool on the hill
zap pendulous bitch page juice
whiny skanky quack
All those sequences of numbers and letters seemed very foreign to me, so I headed immediately to Paris....
...only to find the butler there, at a tiny sidewalk café, in quiet conversation with a snail! The snail got away before I could find whether it was the snail I was looking for or just another slime-trailer, and the butler distracted me by bring hot towels and my reading glasses, but I'm sure Johnny Voodoo must have been the subject of conversation.
So I took the question to the streets, by ducking into every alley I could find and spraypainting on the walls....
WHO KILLED JOHNNY VOODOO?
