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

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…

Disclaimer: Monday Mysteries are culled from the 1993 Milton Bradley game, Crack the Case – but don’t go peeking.

Monday Mystery: Class Act

Dorm Room

Note: Last time Jay chose a medium mystery.

The Solution:

Chip knew that Buzzy was having a very secretive affair with someone. Each Tuesday, Buzzy’s alarm clock would ring at 1:45am, whereupon Buzzy would sneak out of the dorm by backing out of the window of their first story room. Chip did NOT know that the someone was his own mother, until he spotted her name on a credit card that Buzzy had begun using.

The shock of Buzzy’s betrayal, and of Chip’s mother’s unfaithfulness to his father, made Chip wild with thoughts of revenge. The next Tuesday, Chip slipped a mild sedative into Buzzy’s bedtime soda. It was just enough to keep Buzzy asleep as Chip later carried him (and his alarm clock) up to an unoccupied sixth-story dorm room and into a similarly-situated bed.

When the alarm clock rang at 1:45, a fuzzy Buzzy backed out of the window and dropped six stories to his death. The sedative in Buzzy’s soda was traced to Chip through his fingerprints, telling the true story of the “switched stories.”

The Case:

Buzzy’s body is found near his dormitory on a prep school campus. His roommate, Chip, is arrested for the murder.

The Mystery:

How and why did Chip bump Buzzy off?

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

Hint #1: Chip had a “relatively” good reason to resent his roommate.
Hint #2: Buzzy had the right time, but the wrong story.
