Monday Mystery: Open and Clothes Case


Note: Last time Jake chose an easy mystery.

The Case:

A woman suddenly disappears from her home, leaving all of her clothes behind – even the ones she’s wearing!

The Mystery:

What became of the woman?

The Solution:

The Land is Oz, and the woman is the Wicked Witch of the West. Dorothy melted her with a bucket of water, and Ding Dong – the witch was dead, leaving only a puddle of water and the clothes she was wearing.

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

Hint #1: The woman was from the west.
Hint #2: 21.02.2020


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…

  1. Did she become invisible?

  2. Did the whole house disappear?

  3. Was anyone else there when she disappeared?

  4. Is she dead?

  5. Is the woman dead?

  6. Suddenly: like a puff of smoke?

  7. First hint is up!

  8. Is her body still in the house?

  9. Okay, so….naturally because I live with the host of this game I have a bit of an unfair advantage because I can ask him questions and have him answer them immediately….BUT THAT SAID, i will share the information I stumbled across last night….

    JRD was just posting the first hint – that the woman is from the west.
    Now don’t you fucking judge me for needing to ask, but I asked JRD to confirm to me that California is in the west. He did and asked why I was asking to which i replied “Well, Hollywood’s in California, right? I was going to ask if she was from Hollywood.”

    That made him laugh and he replied that YES, she is from Hollywood, but NOT from California. (?!)

    So, do what you will with that information. I’m still pretty stumped, but now you folks know.

  10. wait, what is left of her? but not her body? because her body has disappeared? how is that possible?

  11. Was she doused with water?

  12. Was she the wicked witch of the west, and she had water thrown in her face?
    “I’m melting….. melting……” *puddle of goo*

  13. Solution will be posted shortly
