The MurdererSituation 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 cop was outside a local bar talking to a friend. Just then the cop heard someone scream from inside the bar, "No, Jim, don't do it!" Then there was a gunshot. The cop ran inside the bar and saw a dead body and a gun on the floor, and a lawyer, doctor, and mailman standing around. The cop immediately arrested the mailman. How did he know who did it?
HintThink about what types of people they would be.
AnswerThe lawyer and the doctor were both female. So when the cop walked in, he remembered someone had screamed, "No, Jim, don't do it!" Jim is a guy's name, and the mailMAN was the only guy there.
