Susan's Last StandMystery teasers are little stories where you need to figure out what happened based on the given clues.
Susan Coffered was not liked very much so no one was surprised when she was found dead. She had been murdered in the Church car park right in the middle of the main Sunday Service. A single shot had done the deed, and it had obviously been fired from way up in the bell tower, some 75 feet high, right at the other end of the Church.
When the detective in charge of the case had finished examining the scene, his assistant had eliminated all but three suspects.
Rev Don Whiteshire had always disliked the way she showed off, making everyone else feel very silly, during her work at the Church.
Carol Magson didn't like how she was made to feel inferior since their aunt had left Susan some money. Susan always had more money to spend than Carol.
Lord Victor Shiling was very angry at the way he heard Susan constantly humiliating him because of his disability.
When all three were finished the detective in charge of this mystery knew who the culprit was.
Who was the culprit? What made the detective so sure?
HintLord Victor had sustained an eye injury causing very poor vision, which is why he only 'heard' Susan taunting him.
AnswerLord Victor could not have done it because of his sight. He could not have been accurate at such a distance.
Rev Don Whiteshire could not have done it. The shooting happened in mid service. He was in clear view at that time.
Carol Magson is the only remaining suspect. She assumed that her Aunt's money would come to her, so she had motive and opportunity.
