Monday Mystery Theater


THE CASE:

Something strange was happening on Elm Street. Every day, for three days straight, between 11:30 a.m. and noon, someone broke into the same empty townhouse, triggering a silent alarm. Each time, the police responded quickly, finding no evidence of theft or vandalism. On the fourth day, at 11:30 a.m., a police officer was lying in wait, hoping to catch the intruder when he or she struck—but no one came on that day, or any day after that.

THE MYSTERY:

Who was triggering the alarm? Why did it happen at approximately the same time for three days running?

THE CLUES:

1. The house belonged to a recently murdered man.
2. The mail carrier regularly arrived between 11:00 and 11:30 a.m.

THE ANSWER:

could have been the mailman but think its the cat coming in and setting off the alarm

jayne said...

I also believe its the cat! Thank you!

The mailman set off the alarm and when the Post Office was notified that the person the mail was addressed to was dead, the mail delivery stopped. So did the alarm going off.

I think it was the mailman, as well. It makes the most sense from the clues that we are given. Thanks!

The mailman was dropping mail into the mail slot on the door. That action triggered the alarm.

If it's the mailman, why is the clue saying that the mailman always came between 11am and 11:30am and the alarm was triggered between 11:30 and noon? It's someone getting the mail and bringing it in, so my vote is for the dog.

theolotto said...

It's not the dog. The next door neighbor kept coming in to get the mail and he had cancelled all the mail deliveries.

Becky said...

it was the murderer looking for a clue in the mail.

Betty C said...

The dog was trained to pick up the mail. When he did so it triggered the alarm. After the owner's funeral the dog was taken away so there was no more alarm.
