Wouldn’t Sherlock Holmes have fun with this case? I can even imagine him complaining about how anyone could get the name "John Maloney" when the victim’s address book indicates the man’s first name began with an "O."

"But my dear Holmes, what about the initials T.K. on the prescription blanks?"

"Watson, you’re a doctor, surely you can fathom that mystery!"
