Was it his response that killed her?
e.g. he was holding a 'live wire' of some sort and he spun round and it touched her and killed her?
Did he recognise her? Think she was an enemy to be killed? Did he think she was an animal he was hunting?

"At work": Is her father the one at work? Is Linda? Are both? Is either of their professions relevant?

Was Linda's cause of death:
Blunt force trauma?
Suffocation?
Poison?
Electrocution?
Blood loss?
Heart Attack?
Burns?

Redwine

Did Linda die of heart attack? no
Was Linda H?A?F? H/child/F Did Linda see her father when she died? Hear her father? yes to both

Lynne

Was it his response that killed her? yes
e.g. he was holding a 'live wire' of some sort and he spun round and it touched her and killed her? This is EXTREMELY and embarrassingly close to the solution...
Did he recognise her? yes Think she was an enemy to be killed? Did he think she was an animal he was hunting? no to these

Alexanderhamilton

"At work": Is her father the one at work? yes Is Linda? no Are both? so, no Is either of their professions relevant? yes

Was Linda's cause of death:
Blunt force trauma?
Suffocation?
Poison?
Electrocution?
Blood loss? this
Heart Attack?

Wow, Lynne is really super close to the $poyler... this should be solved right away.
Burns?

Her father was holding something at the time of the surprise?

And it was that 'something' that killed Linda?

Was it a tool of his trade?

Did it have a blade? Was it electrically powered?

Did this happen indoors? Outdoors?

Well, this was embarrassingly easy. You know it's time for the...

********SPOILER********

A lumberjack is cutting down trees with a chainsaw. Linda, his young daughter, wants to surprise him at work and tugs at his shirt to get his attention. He turns around to see what's going on, unaware that his daughter is standing behind him. Linda is hit by the still moving blade of the chainsaw and bleeds to death.


Luckily, this is not a true story. However, my next puzzle, which will be up in a minute, is based on one.

I'd think he might have been a little more wary given the tug on his shirt.

He should, but there are so many (chainsaw and other) accidents that happen because people don't pay attention or forget they're handling dangerous tools :-/

I occasionally work with a chainsaw, and for one, always look behind me before operating it. For instance, if the tree you're felling goes the wrong way, you have to determine your escape route[s] in advance. When handling deadly tools, nothing is left to chance, and it's all about focus. What a ghastly puzzle...!
