How the U.S government applied Thomas Grammar’s Method to Hushpupphi’s Case by AbdulBasit Obisesan


The recent news which went viral on social media on the 8th of September, 2022 reads that the U.S govt. agrees to reduce Hushpuppi’s sentence to 11yrs for helping detectives solve other criminal cases is not the most interesting criminal story because it is not a new thing under the sun. Instead, it is something this writer calls to set a thief to catch a thief method. How do I mean, you ask? Now listen.

In 2005, at the Florida Penitentiary in America, there was an unsolved case involving a man named Thomas Grammer. This 37-year-old person named “Thomas Grammar” was shot to death by someone and no one knew WHO did it and WHY. the case remained unsolved for a year due to lack of evidence. The only clues in the case were that 2 men and 1 woman forcefully entered the apartment, killed him, and fled in a waiting vehicle.

Hence Thomas Grammar’s father “Harvis Grammar” believed that the TECHNIQUES, PROCEDURES, and INTELLIGENCE of one criminal could be known to at least a few other CRIMINALS.

For this reason, he printed details of his son’s murder on a special deck of playing cards and gave it to one of the inmates of a local jail while the inmates were playing cards, recognized the procedure of murder, and gave a few leads that helped in catching the criminal suspects, who later confessed the murder.


Thus “playing cards” helped solve an unsolved case and the same was implemented to solve several other unsolved cases with a success rate of 100%.

Meanwhile, the U.S government did not forget so quickly to apply Thomas Grammar’s method to receive help from Hushpupphi to solve the said criminal cases which led to the reduction of his sentence. Affirmatively, this writer is of the view that Hushpupphiʼs case is not entirely breaking news but rather set a thief to catch a thief method.


This writer recommends that the Nigerian government should equally learn how to apply Thomas Grammar’s method in the areas where it is needed in some criminal cases. For emphasis, no criminal can either climb up the ranks or do business all by himself. Police might not know about him but other criminals will definitely know him.
