Monday Mystery: The Peeping Tom Murder

Posted by on November 26, 2018

Window Spy

Update: Raygan wins again! See you next Monday.

Solution: Tom had shot his wife to death years earlier. On a Most Wanted program on his neighbor’s TV, he saw a re-enactment of his crime and a police drawing that looked exactly like him. Knowing he would be recognized, he shaved his head and mustache, removed his false teeth, and drove off to look for a safer location.

Note: Last week Raygan chose a hard mystery.

The Case:

Tom Youst enjoys using his binoculars to spy on his neighbors. One night, he sees something unexpected in the apartment across the way – the shadowy image of a man shooting a woman. Tom immediately goes into his bathroom, shaves, and removes his false teeth. He then packs a suitcase, gets into his car and drives out of the city.

The Mystery:

What did Tom see through his binoculars? Where did he go, and why?

Hint #1: Locked till 5PM

Hint #2: Locked till 9PM

Note:

    Does Tom have a brother?

    Were the false teeth covering real teeth? (E.g. are there teeth in his mouth currently)

      His false teeth were four at the front, (it wasn’t a full pair of dentures.)

    Is he an undercover agent?
