Holmes Recording

Sherlock breaks into a crime scene. The victim is the owner who is slumped dead on a chair and has a bullet hole in his head. A gun lies on the floor and a cassette recorder is found on the table. On pressing the play button, Sherlock hears the message: “I have committed sins in my life and now I offer my soul to the great lord”….following a gunshot.

Sherlock smiles, of course it’s a murder. Why did he think so?

    because he never re-wound the cassette recorder before the gunshot. Of course.

    I’ll accept that answer as a winner. My question is, how did Sherlock come across an invention of the 1960s, when his story ends in 1910? A modern Sherlock would comment on the artifact and be amazed that it still worked.
