Max Gaetanno Mystery

Max walked into a room with no windows and found a dead man who obviously hung himself from the ceiling, though he couldn’t figure out how. There was no chair beneath him that he might have jumped off of, or a table. Just a puddle of water.

How did he do it?

  • the man hung himself by standing on an ice bar

    may be he committed suicide by standing on a block of ice?

    Block of ice makes perfect sense, but I like to think that every bit of information contributes something to a riddle. It’s a room with no windows. What does that mean? Hmmm, maybe a freezer. With the refrigeration turned off so the ice would melt.

    Two things come to mind. 1) That’s some major conviction! Hanging breaks the neck for a quick death. Slowly melting ice is self strangulation. A terrible way to go I presume.

    2) Max sure seems to find a disproportional number of bodies. That’s one scary dude :)

    He stood on a block of ice until it melted.

    He stood on large blocks of ice…the ice melted.
