Good morning, Super Sleuths! Are you up for another challenge? Today we will be looking at a cold case that was solved many years later. It is your job to detect which of the tales is true.
The year is 1985. A couple were spending the evening together at home. They had been married for two years. In the middle of the night a man that had previously raped the wife tracked them down, broke into their house, and in the process of a robbery gone bad, shot and killed the husband.
Police believed they had a suspect, but were unable to bring charges because there wasn’t enough evidence to convict them of murder.
The wife’s description of the man who robbed them was a barefoot homeless man that did the dead and then disappeared into the night.
Which of the following do you think is true:
*The man had been stalking the wife for some time. After raping her, he let her go to continue with his fantasies knowing she couldn’t identify him. He grew jealous of her husband and wanted her all to himself. He broke in and shot her husband.
*The husband’s mistress had a brother that was angry about her indiscretions because it was in opposition to the family’s religious beliefs. He broke in and killed only the husband because he wanted to break the chain of wickedness.
*The wife was having an affair and that man broke into the house and shot her husband. To cover for him, the wife made up the story of the barefoot homeless man to get the police looking in other directions.
*The wife faked the whole thing and shot her husband herself. She had been married multiple times and didn’t love her husband. Instead of divorcing, she decided a bullet was the way to get out of her troubles.
