[Tiger] One man's trash is another man's treasure

Postby Tiger » Sun Aug 24, 2014 1:07 am

Jericho's visit to the doctor made him a rich man. Amanda probably wouldn't be too happy if she knew what had happened.

Becoming a rich man as in getting wealthy? financially?
Did Jericho become the rich man? or the doctor?
Is Jericho a doctor, too?
Did Jericho visit the doctor as a patient? as a colleague (to discuss some patient's medical history or something the like)? in some official function?
Did the doctor give Jericho the money? if so: was it a bribe? did Jericho blackmail the doctor? did the doctor pay Jericho for something?
Inheritance relevant? Did Jericho see the doctor for a DNA test?
Is Amanda Jericho's wife? the doctor's wife? a relative of either the doctor or Jericho?
Are there more people involved in this story besides the doctor, Jericho and Amanda?
Is the reason of Amanda's (potential) unhappiness: that Jericho and/or the doctor were involved in something criminal or fishy? that Jericho in some sense betrayed or deceived her?
Did Amanda lose the money Jericho got? Would she have become rich instead of Jericho, given the circumstances have been different (or Jericho had not seen the doctor)?

Becoming a rich man as in getting wealthy? Yes. Financially? Yes.
Did Jericho become the rich man? Yes. Or the doctor? No.
Is Jericho a doctor, too? No.
Did Jericho visit the doctor as a patient? Possibly, but not necessarily.
As a colleague (to discuss some patient's medical history or something the like)? No. In some official function? No.
Did the doctor give Jericho the money? No. If so: was it a bribe? did Jericho blackmail the doctor? did the doctor pay Jericho for something? So no to these.

Inheritance relevant? Yes. Did Jericho see the doctor for a DNA test? No.
Is Amanda Jericho's wife? No. The doctor's wife? No. A relative of either the doctor or Jericho? No.
Are there more people involved in this story besides the doctor, Jericho and Amanda? Yes. Amanda's husband.
Is the reason of Amanda's (potential) unhappiness: that Jericho and/or the doctor were involved in something criminal or fishy? There is a bigger reason, but yes. Just Jericho, not the doctor.
That Jericho in some sense betrayed or deceived her? Yope.
Did Amanda lose the money Jericho got? Would she have become rich instead of Jericho, given the circumstances have been different (or Jericho had not seen the doctor)? No to both.

Regarding the source of Jericho's wealth ....did he invent or patent something? sell something? get a new job? steal the money? receive money intended for somebody else?

Is Jericho's profession relevant? Does the doctor specialise in a particular field of medicine or is he just GP? Did Jerciho visit his surgery?

Regarding the source of Jericho's wealth ....did he invent or patent something? sell something? A little bit of this... get a new job? ...and little bit of this. To save time, I'll just tell you that he was hired for a one-time service. steal the money? receive money intended for somebody else? No to rest.

Is Jericho's profession relevant? No, except for this "one time".
Does the doctor specialise in a particular field of medicine or is he just GP? Did Jerciho visit his surgery? Both are irrel.

Can I just take this time to say how much I love the collaborative nature of Lateral Puzzles? So far I've had four sets of questions and they were from four different people. I've seen puzzles on the old forums that have at least a dozen participants. It's beautiful how we all work together to piece the stories together

Well said :)

Has Jericho volunteered to be part of some sort of medical research or? If not is the one off service medically related?

Is Amanda seriously ill? Do we need to identify the exact nature of her illness?

Does the one off task involve Jericho having to pretend he is somebody else?

Did the doctor give anything to Jericho? Did Jericho take something from the doctor? Or from the doctor's rooms? Relevant what kind of rooms the doctor was in? Surgery? Hospital? Laboratory? His private home?

Did Jericho get something someone else considered to be trash? Which in fact was valuable?

Well... kind of? Amanda is dead.

Does the one off task involve Jericho having to pretend he is somebody else? No, slight ish.

Did the doctor give anything to Jericho? No.
Did Jericho take something from the doctor? No.
Or from the doctor's rooms? Yesish.
Relevant what kind of rooms the doctor was in? No.
Surgery? Hospital? Laboratory? His private home? Let's just say it's a small clinic.

Did Jericho get something someone else considered to be trash? Which in fact was valuable? No but I like this idea.

Jericho yesishly taking something from the doctor's rooms: Take something, but not from a room but somewhere else on the doctor's premises? Or somewhere nearby?

No to both. The 'ish' is there because I think 'taking' implies something else but Jericho did not do the "something else".

Did Jericho kill Amanda himself? If so, did he act alone? And was killing Amanda his own idea?

Or did Jericho hire or otherwise abet someone to kill Amanda? Help someone else who actually killed her? Fail to prevent the murder?

Did Jericho pick up an object while in the doctor's rooms? An object that was there before his visit? Did he take away the object from the doctor's rooms? Destroy it while still in the doctor's rooms? Destroy it later?

Was there 1 more person besides Jericho involved in killing Amanda? 2? 3? 4?... LTPF list of natural numbers, please.

Did Jerico expect to get rich when he killed Amanda? Was financial gain his motive? Did the other person(s) involved in the killing have the same motive as Jericho?

After picking up the object in the doctor's rooms, did Jericho put it back to its original place? To another place inside the rooms? Give it to the doctor? Give it to someone else?

Was the object the doctor's property? Jericho's? One idea: Was it part of the doctor's medical records? Something about Amanda?

One other person - Amanda's husband.

Did Jerico expect to get rich when he killed Amanda? Was financial gain his motive?
Yes to both.
Did the other person(s) involved in the killing have the same motive as Jericho?
No.

After picking up the object in the doctor's rooms, did Jericho put it back to its original place? This.
To another place inside the rooms? Give it to the doctor? Give it to someone else?

Was the object the doctor's property?
Yope-ish. This is personally my least favorite answer to a puzzle question but I think it's the most fitting.
Jericho's? No.
One idea: Was it part of the doctor's medical records? Something about Amanda?
No to these, very slight -ish to "something about Amanda".

Did Jericho pick up the item in order to look at it? to get information? to use it in any way? to alter it? to leave (someone's) traces on it?
Did the item carry the doctor's DNA? (like a hair, for instance) and Jericho left it in the place of murder in order to direct the police's suspicion towards the doctor?
Was the doctor at any point suspected of having murdered Amanda? Did he have a motive?
Was Amanda poisoned? Did it look as if she died from an erroneous prescription of the doctor?
Was Jericho paid to kill Amanda? by her husband?
Did Amanda's husband inherit a lot of money from Amanda? and shared it with Jericho?

Did Jericho pick up the item in order to look at it? Yes! to get information? Yes! to use it in any way? No. to alter it? No. to leave (someone's) traces on it? No.
Did the item carry the doctor's DNA? (like a hair, for instance) and Jericho left it in the place of murder in order to direct the police's suspicion towards the doctor? No.
Was the doctor at any point suspected of having murdered Amanda? Did he have a motive? No to both.
Was Amanda poisoned? It does not really matter how she was murdered, so let's say yes - she was poisoned. Did it look as if she died from an erroneous prescription of the doctor? No but that's a way better answer than what I have.
Was Jericho paid to kill Amanda? Yes! by her husband? Yes!
Did Amanda's husband inherit a lot of money from Amanda? Yes. and shared it with Jericho? Only in that he got paid to kill her.

Will Jericho get rich just because he gets paid by Amanda's husband for killing Amanda? Because Amanda's husband offered him additional money for doing more than just kill Amanda? Because he can get more money from Amanda's husband than originally "contracted"?

Is the relevant information Jericho gets form the object

- that Amanda is dead?
- that Amanda's death isn't suspected to be murder?
- that Amanda had a certain medical condition? Didn't have a certain medical condition?
- that Amanda was the doctor's patient? Visited the doctor at a certain time? Didn't visit him at a certain time?
- that Amanda owned certain assets?
- some other information about Amanda?
- some information about Amanda's husband?
- some information about the doctor?

Is the object something written? A picture or sequence of pictures? Something containing sound information? A body part of Amanda? A blood sample? Urine sample? Stool sample? Some (other) kind of cell sample?

Did Jericho look at the object before he killed Amanda? afterwards?
Did the information he got from looking at this object help him to chose the method of murder? to cover it up? to remove traces?
Did the murder look like an accident? like as if Amanda had died from a disease?

At the time of Jericho's visit to the doctor: Was Jericho already determined to kill Amanda? Was Amanda's husband determined to have her killed? Had Amanda's husband already offered Jericho money for killing Amanda?

A picture/pictures: Do the relevant pictures show (part of) Amanda? Are they normal photos? X-ray photograph? sonograms? pictures from a tomography? Some other product of diagnostic imaging?

Did Jericho somehow copy the writing he looked at? The picture(s)?

Was Amanda's husband present when Jericho visited the doctor?

Jericho got the information where to find Amanda from the object. So he didn't know that before? Was Amanda's husband unable to tell him? Unwilling? As Amanda wasn't living apart from her husband, I assume the killing wasn't to take place at Amanda's home?

Something that may have images in it: A newspaper? Newspaper article? Magazine? Magazine article? Book? Part of a book? A letter? Some kind of electronic data storage medium? Or rather a loose collection of material?

No to both. See below.

As Amanda wasn't living apart from her husband, I assume the killing wasn't to take place at Amanda's home? Correct, although the location of the murder does not matter.

Did Amanda bring the magazine with her? to read in the waiting room? or was the magazine provided by the doctor's office?

If Amanda brought the magazine herself, did she know the person who had the subscription to the magazine? Was the address of that person printed somewhere on the magazine? was this what Jerico was looking for?
If the doctor's office provided the magazine, did Amanda leave something in it with writing on it? like a bookmark?

The magazine was in the doctor's office - there is now nothing more about the doctor that is relevant to the puzzle.

If Amanda brought the magazine herself, did she know the person who had the subscription to the magazine? Was the address of that person printed somewhere on the magazine? was this what Jerico was looking for? No to these.

If the doctor's office provided the magazine, did Amanda leave something in it with writing on it? Yope but not Amanda...
like a bookmark? No.

Is there some information about Amanda in the magazine's content? Yope.Is the magazine addressed to Amanda? Is Amanda a reader of the magazine? Does she work for the magazine? No to rest.

Recap:
Amanda's husband has hired Jericho to kill Amanda. He goes to the doctor's office and picks up a magazine, in which he learns the information necessary to find and kill Amanda (what she looks like, where she'll be, etc.)

Did Amanda's husband make notes or marks in the magazine before?
Was Amanda at the doctor's office at the same time when Jericho was there?
Did Jericho recognize her from the picture in the magazine? Did he talk to her at the doctor's office? or later?

Did Amanda's husband (or Amanda? the doctor? someone else?) alter the magazine in any way?
Was it a special interest magazine? one that you usually would find only at a doctor's office? or would Jericho also have been able to buy the magazine at a newsstand? (and if he bought it at a newsstand: would he have got the same information from it?)
Did the relevant picture in the magazine show Amanda? her house? her car? a place she likes to visit? something else of relevance? Was there something else in the magazine from which Jericho got information (besides the picture?) if so: printed text? handwritten text?

Did Amanda's husband Yes (or Amanda? the doctor? someone else?) alter the magazine in any way? Yes.
Was it a special interest magazine? Irrel one that you usually would find only at a doctor's office? Assume no, the setting only served to give a reasonable place for a magazine to be. or would Jericho also have been able to buy the magazine at a newsstand? Yes. (and if he bought it at a newsstand: would he have got the same information from it?) No.

Did the relevant picture in the magazine show Amanda? her house? her car? a place she likes to visit? something else of relevance? Was there something else in the magazine from which Jericho got information (besides the picture?) FA - there is no relevant picture. if so: printed text? Yes-ish. handwritten text? No.

Did Amanda's husband underline some text in the magazine? Otherwise mark some text in the magazine? If so: Did he basically mark single letters? Syllables? Words? Phrases? Sentences? Sections? Whole articles?

If so: Did he basically mark single letters? Probably. Syllables? Words? Possibly. Phrases? Sentences? Sections? Whole articles? Everything else is less likely.

Okay all the pieces are there so I'm going to go ahead and post a

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

Amanda's husband hired Jericho to kill Amanda. Not wanting to leave any traceable evidence, he makes holes above letters and words about where to find Amanda and what she looks like. He leaves the magazine in the trash at the doctor's office and tells Jericho. Jericho picks up the magazine, gets the details, and kills Amanda.
