Did John trip over a pillow and land on a banana peel, breaking his neck?

If we can't solve today I'll start a new one. This is impossible Eddie.

The mystery of what martial art killed John will forever remain a mystery.

Default There's no shortage of cold cases, super sleuths!

CASE: Strong as Silk

A man is dead, a ribbon around his broken and bruised neck. What is known is that he's been dead for almost an hour. There are people within a hundred feet in open view who have been watching for over an hour. The dead man's right toenails and toes are rather bloody and the blood isn't his own.

How did he die?

Did the man die because his neck was broken?

Did the man die from blood loss?

Did the man die from exposure?

Did the man die from a health condition?

Did the man die from a heart attack?

Did the man die from blunt trauma?

Are any of the man's body parts missing (meaning not attached to his body)?

564 BC: Arrhichion of Phigalia, Greek pankratiast, caused his own death during the Olympic finals. Held by his unidentified opponent in a stranglehold and unable to free himself, Arrichion's trainer shouted, "What a fine funeral if you do not submit at Olympia!" Arrichion then kicked his opponent with his right foot while casting his body to the left, causing his opponent so much pain that he made the sign of defeat to the umpires, while at the same time breaking Arrichion's own neck as the other fighter still had him in a stranglehold. Since the opponent had conceded defeat, Arrichion was proclaimed victor posthumously.

Don't even ask. Sorry, everyone.



Gorgeous George


THE CASE

The officer serving the search warrant found the metal rectangle he was looking for, and arrested Mike for George's murder.


THE MYSTERY

What was the metal rectangle?

Was the rectangle found in Mike's home?

Was the rectangle found in George's home?

Do Mike and George live together?

Was the rectangle used to kill George? Is the rectangle recognizably a weapon (outside of the context of the murder)?

Is the metal rectangle a picture frame?

Would the metal rectangle fit inside your average countertop bread box?

Ring box?

Refrigerator box?

Did the killer use the rectangle for something other than murder?

Did the victim use the rectangle for something other than being murdered with?

Did anyone else besides the officer use the metal rectangle for anything?

Did the murderer choose the metal rectangle for a reason other than because it was close by at the moment it was needed?

Was George truly gorgeous?

Was the metal rectangle a mirror?

Was the metal rectangle shiny enough to be used as a mirror?
