The Portuguese have the following “diz-me com quem andas e eu dir-te-ei quem és” which means “tell me who you hang out with and I’ll tell you who you are”.
I’ll adapt that expression to our friend Derek Flack by saying “tell me where's your apartment in PdL is and I’ll tell you that you’re a liar.”
No, I'm not implying that he's lying about his address in PdL because that is, as said before, one of the few things that we’re certain he was truthful about.
But Flack is so unfortunate that when he lies he hinders his cause and when he speak truthfully he goes and does the exact same. And that's what happens when he says where his apartment is: Rua do Ramalhete, Lote 1, Apartment XXX.
It shows clearly something that is totally inconvenient for a “convenient” witness to “conveniently” have seen Pimpleman where he was “conveniently” standing, in the top third of Rua Dr. Francisco Gentil Martins.
“Rua do Ramalhete, Lote 1, Apartment XXX” means clearly that Flack’s apartment block, in PdL, in which he says his is, is at the beginning of the Rua do Ramalhete. There’s no lower number than 1, is there?
#1 is always the first house in any street. Lote 1 is the first block apartment of Rua do Ramalhete.
It’s either in the area of the blue or of the red circle. Fred’s GPS says that it’s in the red, near The Mill, but as always, we’ll consider both hypotheses.
Anyone living in PdL has basically three walking destinations: heading for beach or the church area and doing so for commercial reasons, such as going to a supermarket or to the pharmacy.
Below, the various logical routes from both ends of Rua do Ramalhete (red and blue) to the any of the three referred destinations, with the exception of one: the Baptista supermarket.
But to that supermarket, logic dictates that the detour be the light blue if coming from the blue route, or be the orange if coming from the red.
The only destination that could make Flack use any other route would be if he would be going to Tapas. However the pool is for the resort’s clients only and for dinner we all know how hard it was to get a booking even if you were staying there, which was not Flack's case.
Besides we already know that all the action in PdL was concentrated in the “PdL Red Triangle” which is near the church.
The fact that there's no logical route between Flack's holiday residence and the Tapas Entrance explains why he changes, on the same day, the motive for his stroll from going to Baptista’s (which doesn’t make any sense even for him) to a leisure walk.
And also why he seems not to be familiar with the space near apartment 5A and made the mistake he made about the parking lot being in front of walking pathway behind that apartment:
