A wealthy man lives alone in a small cottage. Being partially handicapped he had everything delivered to his cottage. The mailman was delivering a letter one Thursday when he noticed that the front door was ajar. Through the opening he could see the man's body lying in a pool of dried blood. When a police officer arrived he surveyed the scene. On the porch were two bottles of warm milk, Monday's newspaper, a catalog, flyers, and unopened mail. The police officer suspects it was foul play. Who does he suspect and why?

Well... if you were a milkman, and you came back to a house to find that two bottles of milk had not been picked up, do you think you would keep leaving them? I mean, come on. Don't waste milk! :-)

I was thinking milkman, because if the door was ajar for 2 or 3 days, and there were two bottles of unused milk...

Why not the mailman? Why would he have left mail Monday through Wednesday, and only noticed the ajar door on Thursday?
