The Will

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.

Detective Tannaj was looking at the dead body that lay sprawled on the ground. She noticed that the man had a great collection of Greek mythology ornaments. He had huge crystal statues of Zeus and the other gods and goddesses. A policeman handed the man's will to the detective. The will read:

"I, Thomas Moore III, do give all of my land, my home, and my beautiful platinum statue of Venus to my Daughter Cynthia Cordelia."

That night Cynthia Cordelia was arrested for murder and forgery. Why?


Answer

The man was a great collector of GREEK mythology. When Detective Tannaj saw that the statue was referred to as "Venus" in the will, she got suspicious. Surely the old man would have known that Aphrodite was the Greek goddess of love, not Venus (who is the ROMAN goddess of love).
