How many tiles have you retrieved from the statues: 6
Why doesn’t the Antique Shop Owner want to lend you the statue: Because he likes it too much

Crypt-Ic (05:00):

You can reason your way through this one: there’s only one tile with a skull so it has to go on the top row. There’s also only one with a lighthouse at the bottom. So it should go at the bottom. That means you need one with a key at the top to accompany the skull one and one with a note at the bottom for the lighthouse one. Since there’s only one that can match, you have two pairs now. So that leaves you with the drops and they can only fit one way. So that’s top and bottom sorted. Now go the same way with the left and right: The diamonds won’t fit so the one on the top tile should go right, the one on the bottom tile should go left. That leaves the drop-tiles in the center.

Who Dunnit:

The Vicar: His muddy shoes were behind him when you visited him.
