He put the dots together

This was heard on the true crime podcast “The Murder Squad”. The host, Billy Jensen, was talking about how a detective was able to solve a cold case. The malaphor is a congruent conflation of “piece together” and “connect the dots”, both meaning to understand something by analyzing and putting together bits of information to reveal something hidden. This one will be added to my “dots collection”, malaphors that contain the word “dot”. Just type in the word “dot” in the search engine on the website to see some the others. A tip of the toque to Mike Kovacs for hearing this one and sending it in.
