Crime Scene Time- I Do Declare

Ah, time for a little crime scene mystery, I do declare!  Shut down the brain fog!

***Who remembers the episode of the Office when Michael Scott decides to distract the whole office from possible bad news about it closing by playing the murder mystery party game Belles, Bourbon & Bullets? Michael Scott only speaks in a Delta Burke accent and says ‘I do declare’ after every sentence he says.  Pam plays the character of Deborah U Taunt.  It ends in a standoff, I do declare.***


I just had to share that with any fellow office watchers, because you’re sure to laugh remembering that episode!


On to our crime scene (which has no hot dog chunks).

A dead body is found at the bottom of a multistory building. Seeing the position of the body, it is evident that the person jumped from one of the floors, committing suicide. A homicide detective is called to look after the case. He goes to the first floor and walks in the room facing the direction in which the body was found. He opens the window in that direction and flips a coin towards the floor. Then he goes to the second floor and repeats the process. He keeps on doing this until he reaches the last floor. Then, when he climbs down he tells the team that it is a murder not suicide. How did he come to know that it was a murder?

I felt like this was a semi-easy one to solve.

Read it through a few times before you scroll down to the bottom to get the answer.


Keep scrolling.




Not yet.




Scroll a little bit more.




Like usual, comment to let me know if you figured it out!





Ok, spoiler alert, answer is next.




Solution:  It had to be homicide because none of the windows were left open.  If he jumped, then who closed the window behind him?


Thanks for playing along with me today!

    What if they were automatic closing windows as some multi story buildings require due to the danger of them possibly being left open?
