Van Dine's 12th. There must be but one culprit, no matter how many murders are committed. The culprit may, of course, have a minor helper or co-plotter; but the entire onus must rest on one pair of shoulders: the entire indignation of the reader must be permitted to concentrate on a single black nature.

A problem with this rule is Ep8's murder scenerio. Perhaps something like "The Rudolf family is the one true culprit" would work. Of course this rule also wasn't stated in red so who knows.
