Who Is The Killer? (2)

(fm Brightside.com)

Continued from here.

Here’re some more responses selected for their own way of looking at it – it’s amazing, often hilarious, to see how human mind reasons out:

(sic)

Fran… I’m gona say the red guy, his shirts messy, he has a fork and no knife, the chef guy looks towards him with a confused look as to say where is your partner as he brings a drink and it looks like a second plate of dinner

Avne… A lady is thi kill because their are 2 knife on the each table but on the women table their is only one knife one kinfe is in the washroom

Shon. I think the lady is the killer as that washroom can be use ladies only a male cannot enter their

Dani……. Those rule Don’t apply to murderer

Kai…. dani…….,, it would be pretty obvious if a man entered the woman washroom

Jasm… the waiter. he murdered and now he is in a rush to get orders to catch up.

Now comes the most elaborate solution!!! Note his background – he’s not a movie script-writer!

Chas. …. Mathematician, Physicist, CS engineer, Inventor

‘* as I see it there are 2 possible solutions:the most likely scenario is the murder is no longer in the restaurant. the riddle never specifically states that the people with numbers are the only suspects. it is likely meant to distract and confuse.

notice the table at the top left corner of the room. one chair is slightly pulled out as if someone got up and left. this is either the victims seat, or it was where the murderer was sitting before leaving. im in favor if the latter for the following reasons:

• the door is left cracked open. this, alongside the chair, suggests someone got up and rushed out.

• excluding the unset tables, the top left table is the only one without a drink. notice how the waiter is holding a cup, looking confused, just standing in the middle of the room unsure what to do (likely because the person who ordered the drink is no longer there)

• nobody with even half a brain is going to stick around a crime scene where the just murdered somebody. seriously who brutally butcher’s a woman with a knife through the heart a public bathroom of a public place, then sits back sown to resume their meal? unlikely.

• now let’s consider #4. I believe he is most likely a red herring. the “obvious” killer, the only one without a knife that we can see. however if you look closely he has no fork either; he is eating with chopsticks. if he did have a knife the table, I believe the unlisted killer took it off his table as he passed by to enter the ladies room (which just happens to be right next to the bathroom, and therefore easily accessible)

• next we have #3. the woman does look nervous, and is a woman and therefore would have access. to me that’s just a little too obvious. one more thing to throw you off the scent. it is more likely she is scared because she went to the bathroom while waiting for her food, and saw the body and didn’t know what to do. as a Muslim she would have a higher tendency to refrain from reporting what she saw for several reasons ( she is the first suspect that would be considered by police, and also may fear being unfairly accused due to racial stigmas regarding Islamic immigrants. she may also be in the US illegally, and is too scared to reveal the crime.)

• finally let’s consider number 1. he looks sketchy af; we can’t see whether he has a knife still or if there are any blood stains on him. however he is sitting right by the exit, carefully watching it. #1 is an unknown, but i don’t think he’s the killer. possibly an accomplice though.

I believe the murder went down like this:

T= 0:00 > 0:03

■ the murder walks in. sits down at the top left table. the victim is already present. the killer possibly waited outside until the woman went to the bathroom, at which point #1 informs the murder it’s time; but the whole accomplice theory is just another possible addition.

note: it is by no means required the killer have any accomplice, and #1 could be completely uninvolved.—

T= 0:03 > 0:05

■ the waiter comes by and the killer either orders a drink (if the victim was already heading for the bathroom at the time) or asks for some time to look at the menu before ordering anything at all (waiting for his moment to strike). after doing either scenario, he/she either just walks directly to the bathroom, asks to be excused, or waits until the waiter leaves and heads to the kitchen to opens the man’s/woman’s ticket. then proceeds to fill their drink.

T=0:04 > 0:07

■ while the waiter is in the kitchen the killer makes it to the ladies room. it’s possible he grabbed 4s knife as he passed by (only if 4 had a knife to begin with, if not then ignore this- he is using chopsticks after all)

the woman likely knew the killer, as the crime was enough of a surprise to the victim that she didn’t call for help. Only the scared woman #3 seems to have noticed. it was a quick, quiet, and unsuspected kill. probably a revenge murder on a cheating wife or something along those lines. He stabs her, and then exits the bathroom immediately (or he waits for his possible accomplice #1 to text him that the coast is clear (both the waiter being absent and the exit [which he’s clearly watching closely] is clear and accessible)

T=0:06 > 0:08

■ after ensuring the coast is clear, the murder casually but swiftly leaves the bathroom and heads for the exit, after reaching it he doesn’t even bother to close the door. he bolts as far as possible from the scene.

T= 0:08> 0:10

■ the waiter returns from the kitchen with the killers drink. however they are no longer on site, and so he stands there holding the beverage cup with a look of confusion on his face, in the middle of the room (the best point from which to survey the diner for the now missing man/woman)

If the killer has to be one of the numbered suspects present in the diner, than it is most likely #1 by general process of elimination. however I feel that this is too simple to be true, and much prefer my own personal theory 🙂

Would you grudge giving him an applause?

It’s interesting to see how many have got it for (rather, against) #3! Bl##dy misogynists:-) Or, she’s truly evil?

(To be concluded )
