Monday-ish Mystery: Gorgeous George

Search Warrant

Note: Last time Jay chose a medium mystery.

The Case:

The officer serving the search warrant found the metal rectangle he was looking for, and arrested Mark for George’s murder.

The Mystery:

What was the metal rectangle?

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

Hint #1: George “fell” for Mike’s clever switch
Hint #2: Mike was at the end of his rope when he hatched his plot


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…
