Hmmm, just out of curiosity, you might want to check the 2nd possible answer for this decleration on the 'classic' puzzle list above. It is Very similar...

*** Spoiler ***

My mistake :( Am sorry for posting this :( Yes, the solution is that she was a bug sitting on a chair where people were playing musical chairs. When the music stopped, someone sat on the chair, thereby killing her.

I thought the classic to be the tightrope-walker one. Should've looked in the 'classic' section for other possible answers. Now I feel so stupid :(
