[Twilghtseeker] How is the weather?

Postby Twilightseeker » Mon Sep 19, 2016 10:10 am

Steven took two girls out to the park on two different days that week. He intended for them both to die, but only Patricia died. Thanks to the weather, Annabelle lived.

Is Steven a H? A? M? is he a murderer? Motive relevant?

Relevant which days of the week he took the two girls to the park? Was the weather different on the two days in question? Would Annabelle have died had it been warmer? colder? dry? wet?

Is a specific week in the year relevant?

Park as in grassy tree area for people to enjoy? ball park?

Is Steven a H? A? M? Yes is he a murderer? Yes, but not necessarily so outside of his actions in this puzzle Motive relevant? No

Relevant which days of the week he took the two girls to the park? No Was the weather different on the two days in question? Yes Would Annabelle have died had it been warmer? colder? This, yes dry? wet?

Is a specific week in the year relevant? Noish

Park as in grassy tree area for people to enjoy? Yes ball park? But this would have worked just as well

Did he intend for them both to die at the park?
Did the girls know he was taking them to the park? Were they conscious when they went to the park? Did Steven try to bury them at the park?
Is it relevant how many days apart he took them?

Did he intend for them both to die at the park? Probably not
Did the girls know he was taking them to the park? yes Were they conscious when they went to the park? yes Did Steven try to bury them at the park? No, BUT now I am thinking of an alternate ending/plan on how this might have worked...haha.
Is it relevant how many days apart he took them? No

Would Steve lend his coat or jacket to the girls, and it was prepared with poison? And Annabelle declined just because it wasn't cold?

Was it something in the pockets? And maybe, since at the time it was warm, Annabelle didn't feel the urge to stick her hands into them?

Was it something in the pockets? Yes And maybe, since at the time it was warm, Annabelle didn't feel the urge to stick her hands into them? BINGO~ :)

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

Steven tried to kill two people, Annabelle and Patricia. He coated the insides of his coat pockets with a poison that killed a few hours after being touched. On the first day that week, he took Patricia to the park. It was a relatively cold day and he offered her his coat. It being cold, Patricia put her hands in the pockets. A few hours later, the poison finally killed her. A couple days later, Steven took Annabelle out, with the same intentions. The day was warmer, and Annabelle didn't feel the need to put her hands in the pockets, so didn't get poisoned.
