The Five people are: Daya, Mohan, Jaroon, Balu, and Ashok

By process of elimination, Jaroon’s leg is amuputated and is the murderer.

Dyaya couldn’t have run in Bangalore City Marathon, if his leg was amputated. Hence he is innocent.

Mohan was a farmer before he moved to the City. Since the murderer grew up together with his brother in Mysore, Mohan is not the brother of Ashok. Hence he is innocent.

Balu met Ashok for the first time six months ago. Hence he is not Ashok’s brother who grew up in Mysore. Balue is innocent.

Ashok is not the murderer, since his brother has committed the murder.

This leaves Jaroon, who is the murderer.

Detective Brown reviewed the information they had on the case so far. A lady was found shot and they already had a list of suspects - John, Mark, Sarah, Henry, and Carol. Plus, there were five notes that were found that were from the killer.

The first was found in a supply room.
The second was found in an art studio.
The third was in a restroom.
The fourth in an animal shelter, and
The fifth at the harbor.

All of the notes read the same thing, "The clues are where you find the notes." Yet, nothing was found at anyplace the notes were.

Taking one more look at all the clues, Detective Brown immediately solved the case.
