For all other detectives working this case

1.) There's no hidden metadata in the image on the page
2.) The password in the file is wrong
3.) Css checks out of
4.) Source  for the page shows nothing hidden.  
5.) Source on the page looks the same as everything else, yet our clue is "something's wrong, fix it " , which seems to imply the source is incorrect.

Here's a list of things that are NOT the answer

258514 (password)
415842 (password backwards)
backwards (Due to the image appearing reveresed)
behead  (numbers to letters equivalent)
dust  (shown in image)
fedora (on head)
grey hat (obvious)
hat (for the hat on his head)
imageshadow (filename)
incorrect (from the text "your solution is incorrect")
left (referring to left hand present - also taking a hint from "something is wrong")
left hand (same as above)
lefty (same as above)
left hand (same as above)
man (from the image shown)
no hand (right hand missing , again referring to the clue "Something is wrong"
password (trying something easy)
reversed (reversed image)
right (referring to something is wrong, also non visbible right hand)
righty  (same as above)
right hand (same above)
shadow (shadowed images)
shoot (for the gun)
Simon (suspect list)
the (missing word on the top sentence)

.... If this is the easy cases, I can't wait to see the hard ones!  Smiley
(No - I haven't closed this yet,  just thought I'd post what didn't work so the new detectives would try these things either ! )

Finally.  Ok, that was really good!!

Anyone still struggling with this, don't worry about the code at all, but look at everything else carefully.
This evaded me even though it was in front of my eyes repeatedly!!   Go back to sabretooth's message with the link in it.  It IS a very direct hint@!
