It began with a normal Saturday afternoon. Judy, driving off in a rush from the garage, forgot to log off from her Facebook account on the computer. Her husband Andrew took the chance to scan through Judy's messages. He found a strange conversation that seems to have happened just a while ago:

Bob:     2zfd hlj vfdd gl kbng
Judy:    4twa
Bob:     6o nppl s jpyr;
Judy:    8o35[w yqf3 r7h


Frustrated, he saved the message to study later and shut down the computer so Judy wouldn't know he checked her messages.

Two weeks later, Andrew got a chance to gain access to Judy's Facebook account again when she rushed to the bathroom with diarrhea. He opened up the messenger and sent Bob the following:

"6O S, [TRHMSMY"


Soon after that evening, Bob was found dead in his apartment from a heart attack.

Can you tell what is happening in the story, and more important, what's in the message?

• Interesting cipher. But I downvoted because I found the story a bit disturbing. Sorry. May 7, 2016 at 9:27
• The moral of the story: Don't do the crime if you can't do the time! May 7, 2016 at 9:57
• @KeyboardWielder I'm not certain personal feelings justifies a down vote.

• @Zymus You can discuss it, but that's all you can. Voting is subjective, and is a matter of choice, unless a clear misbehaviour is going on :-)

• Thanks for all the support! As for KeyboardWielder, my apologize you found it disturbing, hopefully it's not mirroring something happened in real life.

1st dialog:

Bob: are you free tonight (space is ambiguous here for n)
Judy: yes
Bob: i book a hotel
Judy: let's have fun

Andrew's message:

I AM PREGNANT

Explanation:

First digit indicates which neighbor key to look on the keyboard for the message: 2 = up, 4 = right, 6 = left, 8 = down. The opposite direction is used for encoding - the same as in numeric keypad.
