That was not exactly the students' conclusion. I think they have narrowed it down to about 7 people. Buchanan was just their "hunch", but their official conclusion is still one of seven that they named, Buchanan being one of the seven. This story was on TV last night.

I watched it on TV last night. Seemed pretty interesting. I hate Buchanan.
