In a empty hangar you find a man hanging from the ceiling, dead.
The smart detective Gel Nuts thinks is suicide. Everybody else think is murder, but the door was close and there are no more doors, nor windows. Who is right?

Welcome to the forum Jelnatz. :)

Have you read the top thread in the 'Active Lateral Thinking Puzzles' section yet? Puzzle titles should include the name of the host. ;)

You may also be interested in reading the second thread on the same page.

Happy puzzling!

Is it true, Jelnatz? Do we already know this one? A classic?

Make up a new one for us! okay?

This may be a classic, but if anyone has solutions to offer that do not involve melted ice, please do so :-)

Jelnatz, if your solution is dissimilar to this classic lateral puzzle then please inform us. Otherwise I will move it to recently solved.

Another solution is a stool, lying on its side. He stood on it to reach the noose, then kicked it from under himself.

Well it could have been clever if it were a lighthouse with an open window and he was somehow able to wrap his feet under the stool and kick it out the window...

Or maybe he is hanging in a stool factory so the presence of a stool in itself is not so suspicious...

Haha, I was thinking it was lying a large distance away from him; his weight as he dropped had helped propel it further than one would expect.

IN A FLOOD!!! When they released the flood gates, and he was just sleeping with a rope around his neck to prove that he wasn't afraid of death. But then the flood gates were closed, the water dried up, and the rope kept his body from floating away so it looked like suicide.
