Having an IQ barely equal to that of a sixth-grader, Eddie is unable to perform the simplest of tasks such as tying his own shoes, but yet has an innate ability to think outside the box.
So it was that by thinking laterally Eddie was able to solve the following cases.
You, no doubt, can probably tie your own shoes, but can you match wits with Eddie? Can you come up with the solutions?
(The answers will appear in the comments section.)
A woman hears a tune which she recognized. She promptly pulled out a gun and shot and killed a total stranger. She was not arrested or charged with murder. WHY?
An old man read a report in his morning newspaper about a wealthy woman who died of old age.
"She was murdered!" he gasped.
He then carried on reading the rest of the newspaper. How did he know that it was murder? Why did he do nothing about it?
A man carefully plotted the murder of his wife. One winter's day he strangled her in the bedroom. He ransacked the house, scattered possessions and broke through the patio doors. He set the burglar alarm downstairs before driving to the local golf course to establish his alibi.
Two hours later, when he was in the middle of his golf game with three colleagues, the burglar alarm went off and the police were alerted. They found the house apparently broken into and the wife strangled.
No animals or electrical devices were found which could have set the alarm off, so it looked as though an intruder had set off the alarm before killing the poor woman.
The man was never arrested or charged. The police inspector long suspected the man, but there was no evidence to tie him to the crime or to place him him at the scene.
The inspector was perplexed by one question which he could not fathom: How did the suspect get the burglar alarm to go off so conveniently?
Crazy Eddie was able to work it out. Can you?
