Are you bored? Why don’t you solve these four crime scene puzzles?

Who doesn’t love solving crime scenes like Sherlock Holmes himself?

Today, I am going to give you four crime scene puzzles which you have to solve. You can ask your friends for help if you want, but you’ll feel better if you solve it by yourself. I am giving the answers tomorrow. If you solved all four, comment “solved”. If you want, reblog the post so your followers can also participate. But don’t share the answers.

Remember, cheating is not allowed.

Alrighty, ready?

Well then, the game is on.

Puzzle #1

One night, a man receives a call from the Police. The Police tell the man that his wife was murdered, and that he should reach the crime scene as soon as possible. The man drops the phone, shocked, and drives 20 minutes to the crime scene. As soon as he reaches the crime scene, the Police arrest him, and he is convicted of murder. How did the police know that he committed the crime?

Puzzle #2

A woman was found dead in her study. She was slumped over her desk and had a gun in her hand. There was a cassette recorder on her desk. When the Police entered the room and pressed the play button on the tape recorder they heard: “I can’t go on, I have nothing to live for”. Then there was the sound of a gunshot. How did the detective immediately know that the woman had been murdered and it wasn’t a suicide?

Puzzle #3 (going SuperLock here. You’re welcome fandom)

Dean was found dead in his bedroom by his brother Sam. Sam describing his dismal discovery to consulting detective Sherlock Homes, who happens to be around the scene. “I was walking by Dean’s house when I thought I would just drop in for a visit. I noticed his bedroom light was on and I decided to peek in from the outside to see if he was in there. There was frost on the window, so I had to wipe it away to see inside. That is when I saw his body. So I kicked in the front door to confirm my suspicions of foul play. I called the police immediately afterward.” With clue from Detective Sherlock Homes the police officer immediately arrested Sam for the murder of Dean. How did he know Sam was lying?

Puzzle #4

On the first day of school, a young boy was found murdered. Police suspect four teachers and question them. They were asked what they were doing at 8:00 am.

Mrs. Hudson: I was driving to school and I was late.

Mr. Smith: I was checking English exam papers.

Ms. Tyler: I was reading the newspaper.

Mr. Stamford: I was with my wife in my office.

The police arrested the killer. How did the police find the murderer?


Good luck to you all!

The deduction is the start line.

    Apparently you’ve posted the answers, but here are my guesses without your answers.
    #1: The man never received the crime scene address but got there to see his wife somehow – he was the murderer if he knew where she died.
    #2: After the woman killed herself, she couldn’t have stopped the recording (unless she made some elaborate mechanism that paused it after she pulled the trigger).
    #3: Honestly no idea. Maybe the frost could’ve been on both sides of the window so he couldn’t see the body anyway and that part was made up? The true answer is probably really stupid. Maybe by “confirming his suspicions of foul play,” he actually confirmed his death. NO IDEA LOL THE ANSWER IS PROB RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME
    #4: Mrs. Hudson – she was late because she was busy murdering the boy? Also have no idea.
