I may be mistaken, but didn't the Johnstons, or Mrs Johnston at least, say they heard someone knock at the Wallace's door earlier that evening - after the milk had been delivered?

I've yet to come to any conclusion about who killed Julia Wallace. As a Wallace as killer proponent, how does your timeline work for the murder?
