Cold CaseSituation 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.
On a cold, winter day, a family called the police to report a theft. The family told the cops that someone broke into their house during the night and stole many things. The cops said they would handle the case.
A few minutes later, the cops had the man who committed the crime. The mother of the family asked the cops how they found him with very little evidence. The cops laughed and explained.
How did the cops find the man?
AnswerIt was a cold winter day, and there was snow on the ground. The man who committed the crime lived down the street. He walked to the house, broke in, and walked back. He left footprints in the snow.
