    Did the candy contain less sugar than it was supposed to?

    So the wife substituted the insulin for something innocuous then removed some sugar from the candy so that the husband wouldn't die immediately, giving her an alibi of sorts.

    After careful consideration, I have determined that Johanna's solution is close enough. Technically the solution is as follows:

    The Solution
    The wife boosted her diabetic husband's insulin concentration, substituted artificially-sweetened candy for his real candy, and her husband went into a coma and died as a result.

    Here is the new case:

    Initial Amnesia
    Solution Value: 7

    The Case
    A young man wakes up on the side of a desert road with a nasty bruise on his temple. He has no car, no possessions, and no clothes to his name. In fact, he can't even remember his name, since the blow to his head has left him with amnesia. Desperately, he looks around in search of a clue that might tell him who he is. That's when he notices a tattoo on his left arm. There are three short rows of letters:

    Eb - Ob
    wsn
    SWIS S

    The Mystery
    Who is the young man and what happened to him?

    Was the place he woke up the same place he received the blow to the head?
    Was his occupation relevant to the motive for the attack?
