7 guesses to Who Killed the Baby

  • Howard

    The maid who was dusting the corners is the red herring here on the basis that the house is round. I think the riddle needs more conditions to make it firmly answerable. I cannot imagine a way of subdividing the house into rooms (with a kitchen for the oven for instance) that would not involve corners. If there are no corners, the maid is clearly lying. The others may be lying as their alibis are not supported.

  • idriss

    the chef because he baked the pie and put poison or maybe the was sleeping

    The maid…she lied…no corners in a round house….handcuff her!

    But, to respond to Howard: Many “round homes exist: Deltec, homes built like silos. etc. I’ve always wanted to live in one.

    The maid lied (or was mistaken/misspoke) but why does this mean they also killed the baby?
