Laterally speaking, I guess you could consider this the mother of all "dead body" puzzles...

true story, moderate to difficult (but then again, my predictions tend to be outperformed by this forum... ):O

humans and animals? yes, slight -ish maybe depending on interpretation were they all of a particular nationality? YES!!!! was there something connecting them? yesish was it a genocide? no was it due to a natural disaster? no is the title relevant at all? laterally speaking, there is a tenuous thread, but for amusement, not for functionality

sausages relevant? no:O

By Vae (Vaetrus) on Thursday, October 20, 2005 - 10:12 pm:


Country relevant? yes, Malaysia(to save the forthcoming question...)
Time period relevant? Presumably within the last 50 years or so. My source didn't reveal the exact timing.

end of the world? no, but good lateral thinking

no, wait, you said true story... must remember to read before posting Sometimes it is better to do and ask forgiveness than wait for permission that may not be given... :O

Is the cause of the deaths relevant?

Were all the deaths from the same cause?

Were the deaths the result of:
Natural causes?
Disease?
Old Age?
Manslaughter?
Misadventure?
Suicide?
Murder?

Okay, I'll revive this one...
We have a bunch of dead Malaysians, correct?
They did not all die from the same cause, but it's sort of like an epidemic of murders? Did a water supply get poisoned, so lots of people were affected? Were these people purposefully killed? or was it an unintended side effect?
