Okay, this is not a riddle, but bear with me! It's fun to try and solve it, okay? Oh yes, questions are difficult, so don't feel bad if you don't get it right. I got them from a book called 'Entertain your brain' which was edited by Ella Harris and Carolin Christin. Very nice book that's filled with puzzles, and I highly recommend it!

1)
Doctor Paul Yancy tiptoed out of the sickroom, closing the door behind him.
"Uncle Ben needs peace and quite," he told his brother and sister-in-law. "The flu has left him weak and depressed. But the old man should make a full recovery."
"Thank goodness," replied Fritz with as much sincerity as he could muster. Uncle Ben had been staying with them ever since he got sick two weeks earlier. Everyday Fritz had to remind himself of the 30 million good reasons why he and Caroline had to be hospitable to the cranky old man.
"Call me if he gets worse," Paul said as he left the house.

"Why can't Paul take Uncle Ben in?" Caroline whined, not for the first time.
"Very simple," Fritz explained again. "The nicer we are to the old buzzard, the more he'll leave us in his will."
A minute later, they hear the television go on in their uncle's ground-floor room.
"At least when he's watching TV he's not making demands," Caroline sighed.

They listened as Uncle Ben channel-surfed for a few minutes, then switched off the set. An hour later, Caroline brought in his lunch on a tray. That's when they found Uncle Ben dead, a half-empty glass of water on his nightstand along with a completely empty bottle of liquid sleeping drops.

As the body was removed, Officer Warren inspected the room. It seemed to have every convenience for a bedridden man. He counted all the electronic or batter-operated devices: the TV set mounted in a ceiling corner, the radio/CD player within easy reach, the portable phone, the remote control for the blinds, an intercom and last but not least, the remote control to adjust the bed.

"According to the medical examiner, the overdose killed him in just a few minutes," a rookie officer informed his superior. "Since the bedroom window was locked from the inside and no one was seen entering the room, I think we can call this a definite suicide."
"Definite murder," Officer Warren countered.

What was it about the room that made Warren suspect murder? And whom did he suspect?


Uncle Ben could not have been watching TV since he was on the bed and there was no remote...
The doctor accidetally overdosed him
so he on the radio then the couple thought that he was watching TV but actually was listening to the radio then Uncle Ben off the radio and died.. LOL



You're drifting farther away! Noooo! Let me pull you back with this:
1) The radio was not turned on during that time
2) The overdose was not an accident

However the remote part was very important. Take a look at that again.

No, now that you've figured it out, only the TV was important.

Edit: The case has been solved by sagante! Thanks a lot for trying!

No, the Uncle died of the overdose, not choking. The doctor put in the overdose on purpose. However, you managed to solve the mystery! It is correct that the doctor took the remote out after placing a whole bottle of sleeping drops into the Uncle's water (killing him eventually) and then used it to make as if he was still alived by switching the channels outside the house.

The doctor overdosed uncle ben. To make it seem he suicided he framed uncle ben and he also told the couple not to enter the room. The couple listened to uncle ben watching TV but uncle ben could not have on or off the TV since their was no remote and it was on the corner of the ceiling.
The doctor took the remote and on the TV from the window so the couple will think he is watching TV then later on the doctor just off the TV from the window and ran away. Uncle Ben died ever since the doctor left the house.

Yeah, you're correct, good job! But someone solved it just before you, sorry! But you got half credit for correctly deducing that the doctor was the culprit. Thanks for trying!

Can't be helped! How about trying another question instead? (Or maybe not, thinking about one thing for more than 3 hrs might cause your brain to explode)

4)
Vince McCormick was a big, angry slug of a man just a month shy of retirement. On Super Bowl Sunday, his two sons, Vince Junior and Sonny, came over as usual to watch the game.

As kick-off time approached, the boys were in the kitchen, helping their mother prepare the snacks. Junior heated up nachos in the microwave while Sonny poured the bags of potato chips and pretzels into bowls. Marie McCormick was mixing the ice and ginger ale and rye together in tall glasses.

"Make sure mine is strong enough," came her husband's growl from the living room. Junior saw the bruise on his mother's arm. "Did he do that to you?" he asked. Marie didn't answer.

What'll you do when he retires and hangs around all day?" Sonny asked. "It'll only get worse."

"No one in our family gets divorced," Marie said firmly. "Oh dear. I forgot which is your father's. Taste it for me will you, Sonny?"

Sonny tasted the drinks, nearly choking on the third one. "It's about twice as strong as the others."

Marie had just finished adding the ice to her husband's drink when Vince came in and snatched his drink.

"Making me come in here," he muttered dangerously. Sonny carried in the snack bowls while Junior took in the nachos, just in time for the kick-off. Marie followed with the other drinks. All four sat around the TV, munching on the snacks and sipping their drinks. It was near the end of the first quarter when Vince Senior held up his glass.

"Get me another." Marie was in the kitchen working on the refill when she heard a gasp, then a moan. She returned to find her husband crumpled in his easy chair, dying.

"A strong, fast-acting poison," the homicide detective said. "Two to five minutes. And yet they all claimed to be eating the same things. They're obviously lying, covering up for each other."

"Not necessarily," a sergeant ventured. "It could've happened just the way they said."

How could Vince have been poisoned? And who could have done it?

As kick-off time approached, the boys were in the kitchen, helping their mother prepare the snacks. Junior heated up nachos in the microwave while Sonny poured the bags of potato chips and pretzels into bowls. Marie McCormick was mixing the ice and ginger ale and rye together in tall glasses.

"Make sure mine is strong enough," came her husband's growl from the living room. Junior saw the bruise on his mother's arm. "Did he do that to you?" he asked. Marie didn't answer.

What'll you do when he retires and hangs around all day?" Sonny asked. "It'll only get worse."

"No one in our family gets divorced," Marie said firmly. "Oh dear. I forgot which is your father's. Taste it for me will you, Sonny?"

Sonny tasted the drinks, nearly choking on the third one. "It's about twice as strong as the others."

Marie had just finished adding the ice to her husband's drink when Vince came in and snatched his drink.

"Making me come in here," he muttered dangerously. Sonny carried in the snack bowls while Junior took in the nachos, just in time for the kick-off. Marie followed with the other drinks. All four sat around the TV, munching on the snacks and sipping their drinks. It was near the end of the first quarter when Vince Senior held up his glass.

"Get me another." Marie was in the kitchen working on the refill when she heard a gasp, then a moan. She returned to find her husband crumpled in his easy chair, dying.

"A strong, fast-acting poison," the homicide detective said. "Two to five minutes. And yet they all claimed to be eating the same things. They're obviously lying, covering up for each other."

"Not necessarily," a sergeant ventured. "It could've happened just the way they said."

How could Vince have been poisoned? And who could have done it?


The mother place frozen poison cubes in the drink of the father lol!
