    Out of a quick piece of thought:

    Right from the outset, Andy and Daniel are out of the equation.
    Statement B says Chris was ‘blocked’ – means he was supposed to do something, but was prevented from doing so. This rules him also out.
    Statement A says Brian was redirected to Chris. Means Brian had targeted someone but was prevented & sent to Chris, who was not killed. So, whatever Brian was out to do, was not murder.

    This leaves Fred, who is not covered in any action statement, and hence, could be the best chance of being the murderer.
