Suspect Motive/reason
Lavinia Maddmans Didn't believe that a ghost was haunting the bed and breakfast. Suspiciously watched the gang talking about the mystery through one of the paintings in the kitchen of the bed and breakfast.
Earl Maddmans Also didn't believe that a ghost was haunting the bed and breakfast. Was always out running errands whenever the Phantom was around.


Culprit Motive/reason
Earl Maddmans as the Phantom of the Maddmans Family Bed and Breakfast Turns out, he was helping the theives out by dressing up as a fake ghost to distract the gang and anybody else and keep them away from the construction site, because they had offered him money to help out the buisness at the bed and breakfast. So, in summary, he did it all for his own wife, Lavina.
Cival War artifacts thieves They were trying to steal a whole bunch of old stuff from the Cival War and hoping to makie a whole lot of cold hard cash for them at auction.

Ahhhh. John Rozum returns to Scooby-Doo and in fine fettle. The first story should be a hoary and hokey haunted house chestnut, but Rozum with Joe Staton just energizes it into a fun, fitting Scooby Snack. How do they do it? The unusual camera angles create visual excitement to something tried and true. The caricature faces of the caretakers bring a freshness to the proceedings. The timing of the Shaggy and Scooby sight gag recalls the magic of the show and invites the reader into the fun by making the tale somewhat more interactive. The polish also comes in the surprising realism inherent in Scooby-Doo which has always been based upon skepticism. When Shaggy's and Scooby's antics interrupt the rest of the Gang's sleep, they come out of their rooms not perfect but ruffled. Their hair looks out of place, and they look a little tired. Some big budget movies even ignore such details. [1]
