Q: REPORTED SPEECH

Does "must have poisoned" remain unchanged in reported speech?

(Direct speech)
- "The dog's master must have poisoned the dog himself to get rid of it", Tom said.

(Reported speech)
- Tom said that the dog's master must have poisoned the dog himself to get rid of it.


A: Yes, because in English you cannot say "must had". It's a problem with modal verbs, so this is an instance where the direct speech and reported speech tenses are the same.
I will read up on the subject and give you a grammatical explanation later.
