Five guests, Mr. Rose, Ms. Tulip, Sir Daisy, Lord Pansy and Miss Lily, were all invited to an exclusive party at Brainteaser Mansion. However, during the long, dark night, the owner of the spectacular mansion, Mr. Death, was found dead in his office. The trouble is, every member of the party went into his office, each at a different time, with a different weapon, motive and clue that incriminated them. From their statements below, can you work out who killed him?

Mr. Rose's statement: "I didn't do it. I never left a footprint because a woman did. I entered the room before the person who took in the poison. I must say though, she was in there for a quarter of an hour before someone else went in!"

Ms. Tulip's statement: "Okay, I admit it! I took in the revolver, even though my motive wasn't revenge. A man entered the room after me and his motive was either rage or blackmail."

Sir Daisy's statement: "All I know is, I did leave a fingerprint, but that doesn't explain why Miss Lily lost a hair, does it? Oh yes! The person who entered seventy minutes before me took in the lead pole."

Lord Pansy's statement: "I entered after a woman, who did not take in rope because the last person to visit him did. I was in there for more than thirty-five minutes confronting Mr. Death with my motive, which, may I say, wasn't greed or blackmail."

Miss Lily's statement: "Yes, you caught me! My motive was jealousy, but it wasn't as bad as that man's blackmail motive, who entered at five minutes past nine. I entered before another man who left the incriminating clue of the blood drop."

The person who entered the room at half past ten is the real killer. Who did it?
