The Confession

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 woman was found dead in her bedroom by her husband. Apparently, she had committed suicide by using her husband's gun. She had recorded her last moments, along with a confession to her suicide. After the police listened to the tape, they immediately arrested her husband for murder. How did they know he did it?

How did he get her to confess her own suicide. If he was going to kill her, why would she help him to make the tape?

why couldnt the tape be almost done and then stop by itself....just wondering.we are assuming that the tape had way too much left on it but what if it didnt.i know i am being pestering but i think it's a good point.

You may want to add "after the police listened to the very short tape" or something to help us understand that the tape was stopped immediately after her confession. Good one, though!

What if the man watched her do the whole thing and immediatly turned off the tape recorder? i suppose there are always exceptions

To the above comment...he would still be guilty of conspiracy of murder....legally suicide is murder, so that attempted suicide can be a crime, and therefore get that person help.....

Good teaser....stumped me.

I said it was all readgy rewound.This meant someone had rewound it as she was already dead.

What if she shot her self somewhere where she wouldn't have died immediately? Since they said the tape recorder was stopped immediately after the gun shot, perhaps she shot herself and then stopped the tape recorder? That seems unlikely, but so does having such a dumb husband and recording a suicide tape, when you're not really commiting suicide.

Ohh... I thought the husband was dead too.

There was no mention of the tape being stopped until the answer so the answer does not make sense.

Great teaser!
I figured he had forced her and like he yelled at her or something like that.

To all those who are confused: P.S. Its a situation puzzle so it keeps you thinking

I heard a brain teaser like this on Youtube once, and when I read this Teaser, I knew what the answer was. Great teaser by the way.
