There are several things that this clue could refer to. It could refer to Troy University (unlikely since nobody active in the assassination games is from Alabama), Troy Academy (possible since there is a troy academy in New York, but there are multiple people active in the assassination games from New York), or Troy School (possible since it could refer to Troy High School or another Troy School).

Troy High School seems like it is the most likely what the clue refers to. Does anybody else have ideas about the clue?

Well as thegenius said, university is a synonym for institution so I searched troy university and got:

Troy University
www.troy.edu/
Troy University is a public institution comprised of a network of campuses throughout Alabama and Worldwide. International in scope, Troy University ...


So it's in Alabama. I'm thinking aubrey.

amerikestrel said university was a synonym for insititution, not me, as well as mentioning Troy University. As for aubrey, would the assassinator really target somebody who hasn't been online for almost three months?

And that wraps it up. The officer spots are full. For those of you still wallowing in your puddle of confusion, the answer was Paul Newman. The first part went to St. Paul which most of you figured out. The second part was Newman's Own Organics, which make all the products listed.
First clue will be posted soon.

-as for the hint, I can confirm it is pointing to Troy University because I watched the movie.

Another possible, tenuous synonym for institute is "tech" (cal tech, Virginia Tech, etc.) If this is the case, the assassin is referring to the Troy Tech program at Troy High School, of which I am a member.

Alright. I accuse harryk of being the assassinator due to a growing body of evidence against him, including: grammar and syntax similar to the assassinator, the strange rebuke that the assassinator gave to him, and that the assassinator is from Houston (discovered when the assassinator clicked on a link to my website, which logs IP addresses).

Guys...honestly....stop looking for really detailed random bs reasons to get protected...they're wrong.

If this is right.....harryk you never ever pick yourself if you just got involved in the games and have never been sassy before...you're going to get accused...that's how it is....especially since Alpha picked herself in the game right before

Grrr... I thought I had lost you. Though I didn't click on that link, so dunno how that happened :?
Anyways Pm me your pick

You're right, I was excited about the prospect of being assassinator so I took it while I had the chance

So for my measly one clue, which all of you actually fell for the trap
It was targeting winneratlife, who goes to Troy Athens Highschool, though I predicted you would all immediately jump to just Troy and freak out thinking who it could be

It would be really epic if it was harryk.

I'm sorry I missed this round, it looks really cool. If it's not harryk, I would be sad.
