The Brother-in-Law

Situation puzzles (sometimes called lateral thinking puzzles) are ones where you need to ask lots of yes or no questions to figure out what happened in the situation. These are good puzzles for groups where one person knows the puzzle and answers the questions.

A detective was talking with Sam. He said, "I'm sorry to tell you this, but your brother-in-law is dead."
"I'm not surprised. Harry had more than one enemy. He had Dick, whom he owes gambling debts, and then there's Jack, whom he cheated out of a will," Sam said. As Sam continued to list the enemies of Harry, the detective made a call and arrested Sam on suspicion of murder. What was the call about? Why was the detective suspicious?
