Hey! Where are my mystery lovers huh? I must say that solving a murder mystery is one of my favorite hobbies. Although I am not someone who is comfortable seeing blood, (which is why I rather solve murder cases behind mystery novel or electronic screens) I do get a certain high from fishing the killer out from the jungle maze of circumstances and evidence surrounding a murder case.
Apart from my own personal joys, I believe that solving these murder puzzles helps put your brain to work. Hence, giving your mind the much-needed exercise to stay sharp.
You see, not only do you need those amazing abs and calves, it is important that you also build their mental equivalents in your brain. It is often a shame to notice that as much as gym memberships soar today due to pop culture, mind care has been relegated to the backstage.
But if you just got that guilty feeling, from reading what I wrote, don’t you worry. You could start your mind to work on this puzzle right now. Welcome to the mind-muscle club.
Make a good observation of this picture.
Look to the left of the picture and you would see the body of a deceased woman, covered in blood. Now you don’t need a seer to tell you that this woman has been murdered. But you have to find the killer. The suspects are listed from one all the way to four. And you are to fish out the guilty from amongst the innocent. Can you do this? Give it a try and see. I couldn’t crack it but you definitely could. Note that, once you think you have arrived at an answer, double check your work and only then can you look to see if you got the right answer.
The guilty one is the one numbered four and an explanation will be given.
1)The murder weapon – which in this case is the knife, is gone from his table and is by the side of the victim.
2)His clothes look remarkably ruffled and creased. Could it be that he had to physically struggle with someone at some point in time? Take a closer look at the sleeves of his shirt. It definitely looks like he was into some kind of a tussle with someone.
3) And on an even closer look, you would notice the trail of blood on the suspect’s ear. This is definitely a big pointer to the fact that he is the killer of the lady lying in her own pool of blood.
Okay, we are done. But before you go, I would love to know if you got it right? If you did, well congratulations and if you didn’t at least you tried. Practice will only make you better and smarter at solving these types of problems.
