Monday Mystery: Close Call

Phone

Note: Last week Colorado Joe chose an easy mystery.

Solution:

Sally was being held hostage by an escapee from a nearby maximum-security prison. When her telephone rang, the man ordered her to answer but not to arouse any suspicion.

Sally worked for Western Union, where employees are still required to know Morse Code. Relieved that the caller was a colleague, Sally turned away from the intruder and rested her thumb on the pound key of her touch-tone phone. As she spoke, she secretly tapped on the pound key in Morse Code: S-O-S … S-E-N-D P-O-L-I-C-E. With the phone closer to her ear, Sally muffled the sound so that the intruder could not hear her message.

Luckily for Sally, her caller kept cool, and the police were quickly able to “reach out and touch” the bad guy.

The Case:

Sally answers the telephone in her living room. The conversation goes like this:

Sally: “Hello?”

Caller: “Hi Sally. Are you coming in to work today?”

Sally: “No, I’m afraid not. I’ve got the flu or something.”

Caller: “Oh, I’m sorry. Do you think you’ll be in tomorrow?”

Sally: “I can’t tell yet. Can you make my excuses to the boss?”

Caller: “Sure. Anything else I can do for you?”

Sally: “No, thanks. Maybe I’ll see you tomorrow. ‘Bye.”

The caller immediately notified the police, who surrounded Sally’s house, broke in, and arrested the man who was holding her hostage.

The Mystery:

How was Sally’s caller tipped off to her plight?

(The winning solution MUST contain all of these elements, please don’t assume information from a previous question.)

Hint #1: Sally was in the communication business

Hint #2: As Sally talked into the phone, she “spoke” another language.

Note:

You’re free to ask anything, (please keep it to one question a post for simplicity’s sake,) but Jurd can only answer your questions with:

  • Yes
  • No
  • Yes and No
  • Irrelevant
  • I don’t know
  • Rephrase your question
  • Define what you mean by…

Monday Mystery: The Crime Wave

Bat

Note: Last week Colorado Linda chose a medium mystery.

Solution:

The Taggert brothers were local boys with a passion for Civil War history. In the library’s document collection, they came across an old diary that mentioned a buried cache of gold bullion. According to the diary, retreating Union soldiers had buried the gold in a nearby field to prevent it from falling into confederate hands.

To pinpoint the location, the Taggerts broke into the clerk’s office and stole a 130-year-old property map. From this, they deduced that the gold was buried on the mail carrier’s property. They then killed Jim’s dog so it wouldn’t alert the neighbours by barking. Finally, they put on ski masks and attacked the mail carrier with baseball bats.

With Jim in the hospital and his dog out of the way, the Taggerts were confident of being able to sneak onto his land undisturbed, and dig for the buried gold.

The Case:

Union Camp has always been a peaceful town, with no crime other than occasional stolen library book. But recently, strange things have been happening. Last week, the town’s clerk’s office was broke into. Two days ago, a dog was shot and killed for no apparent reason. And today Jim, the local mail carrier, was attacked with a baseball bat and wound up in the hospital with 20 stitches.

“We got us a regular crime wave,” the neighbours complained. “What’s going on here?”

The Mystery:

What is going on in Union Camp?

(The winning solution MUST contain all of these elements, please don’t assume information from a previous question.)

Hint #1: The murdered dog had belonged to the mail carrier

Hint #2: Unknowingly, Jim was hiding something that someone wanted
