Who/what died? A person? Animal? The phone?

HI Hietek and welcome to the forum :o)

Is the dead person an adult? male? i'm going to asssume it's a he.

The cause of the man's death... Murder? Suicide? accident? natural causes? disease/illness?

If he was murdered had any other crime been committed?

Did only one person call the police? Did that person find his body? Is the specific location of his death relevant? Indoors/outdoors? Did anyone witness his death (Apart from his killer if in fact he was murdered)?

Did the person actually phone the police ? or did they just cry out "help police" or something similar? Is the person who called the police the killer?

I'm puzzled as to how his death was murder and natural causes... Was he euthanised? Was any weapon used? Did the police actually visit the scene? Did they carry out a full investigation?

This is a real death and not let's say on a movie set or during a stage play?

Were the police called because he died? Were they called by the killer?

Did they initially intend to charge someone? If so: Did they decide that the person did not kill him? Or that the killing was justifiable? Was the killer simply inaccessable? Dead?

Did the person actually phone the police ? yes

Is the person who called the police the killer? No but that would have made a better puzzle

I'm puzzled as to how his death was murder and natural causes... Let us switch to the term "kill" instead of "murder" to keep confusion from arising as a result of the legal definition of murder. How can you kill someone through natural causes?

Were the police called because he died? yes

Did they initially intend to charge someone? not once they investigated

Did they decide that the person did not kill him? the person's actions killed him

Or that the killing was justifiable? not relevant

Was the killer simply inaccessable? No


Dead? No, had I thought of that this puzzle would have been much more enjoyable

Did the killer inadvertently communicate some deadly disease to the dead guy?

Had the victim a coronary condition and the "killer" gave him a fright causing a heart attack?

Hey I love it when a wild guess pays off. I once saw a movie where two lovers tried to kill her husband by shooting him with a gun loaded with blanks to trigger a heart attack.
