There Was a Murder!

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.

There was a murder in my front yard. The neighbors saw it but the police weren't called. The best detectives in the world couldn't find a body.

What happened?

I think there is a simular one to this... nice spin of it though...

I know teasers are supposed to be misleading.. but a murder is technically a person killing a person (or the collective term for a group of crows) not an animal killing a different species of animal.

Excepting the term "meat is murder" I think that it's the wrong word to be using here (across species and all).

Perhaps the term "killing" would be misleading but not as literally flawed.

Or maybe I should just not be so pedantic >_

While the murder can be argued, it would sound to suspicous worded "A killing occured in my front yard". Anyways, it was quite easy, I got it right away.
