Elevator Mishap

Six men, whose names are Fred Alberts, Larry Smith, Brian Martin, Marty Jones, Bill Edison, and John Fox were in an elevator together.

Suddenly, the lights went out. When the lights came back on, Fred Alberts' wallet was missing.

Detectives have investigated. They have questioned the suspects, the witnesses, and people who know the suspects. They have collected physical evidence (hair samples, fibre samples, etc.) from the crime scene. They have collected 14 clues, but have not been able to solve the crime.

Therefore, they have called in the world's greatest detective, YOU. You must now examine the clues and solve the crime.

No two suspects have the same weight, colour shoes, colour umbrella, colour car, or hair colour.
The suspect who owns a purple car was wearing tan shoes.
The suspect who weighs 180 pounds owns a green car.
Brian Martin owns a green car.
The suspect who owns a black car was wearing blue shoes.
The suspect who weighs 150 pounds was wearing tan shoes.
Marty Jones was carrying a purple umbrella.
John Fox has red hair.

The thief owns a black car.
The suspect who owns a white car is not the one who weighs 170 pounds.
Bill Edison was wearing brown shoes.
The suspect who weighs 190 pounds is not the one who has red hair.

Puzzle IconAlex and Blake were rowing their canoe along the River Trent.

In the morning they managed to row upstream at an average speed of 2 miles per hour.

They then stopped for a spot of lunch and a nice rest.

In the afternoon, the pace was a little easier as they were now rowing downstream back to their starting point, and managed an average speed of 4 miles an hour.

The morning trip took them 3 hours longer than the afternoon.

How far did they row upstream?
