A man leaves a $100,000 dollar bill on his desk

A man leaves a $100,000 dollar bill on his desk and leaves work. When he returns the money is gone. He has three suspects: the cook, the cleaning lady, and the mail guy. The cook says he put the money under a book on his desk to keep it safe. They check and it is no longer there. The maid says she moved it when she was cleaning to the inside of the book between page 1 and 2. They open the book and look between page number 1 and 2 but it isn't there. The mail guy says he saw it sticking out of the book and to keep it safe he moved it to between page number 2 and 3. Once they are done the culprit is promptly arrested.Who did it and how did he know?

Yeah, the guy that made that should probably be arrested for counterfeiting.
 
Aside from that it'd be a travesty of justice to arrest anyone on the basis of the events described.

Extremely unlikely.  The $100,000 was made only from December 1934 to January 1935.  They were gold certificates with the picture of Woodrow Wilson.  No individual was able to have one.  They were only used for official transactions between Federal Reserve Banks, and the Treasurer of the United States only issued them to Federal Banks that had an equal amount of gold in the Treasury.  How this guy got hold of one is beyond my wildest imagination.  Besides, if you had one, would you leave it on your desk and go away?  I wouldn't do it even with a one dollar bill.
 
So each person gave his/her  version.  Two of them have plausible explanations, but the other one needed a very thin knife and lots of patience to do as he/she claimed.    
 
I agree with you, it'd be a travesty of justice to arrest anyone on the basis of the events described.
