The Late Report

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 man and his wife went on a vacation. Two months later, the man called the police to report the location of a body near the place where he had been on holiday. The police thanked the man and then asked why it had taken him two months to report the body. What was the reason?


Answer

The man saw the body in the background on one of his holiday photographs. It was two months before the film was developed.

What if he was badly injured and could not speak?

That's not logic, it's guessing

Or perhaps the dead body was of his wife, who had no other family or friends, and his concience finally got the better of him... Good one, though, but I must say, I rarely develop my photos that soon after my holidays...

I would not put that picture in the scrapbook: "Yes, that's the one were, two months later, we saw a dead body in the picture. Its a shame though, nobody else got that cool background."
