    The tape recorder had been stopped (from recording the note) and rewound. A suicide victim would not have been able to do that.

    Being old, and actually using a tape recorder may have helped solve this one??

  • Brent, you are today’s winner!
    Someone had to have rewound the tape.

  • Margot

    The tape must have been shut off after the murderer shot her. Otherwise, it would have run on to the end in “record”

  • Margot

    I’m always too late with the correct answers!…don’t keep up on these riddles…….

  • OK Margot, you’ve got it. I will try to only wear my riddle dude hat first thing in the morning. I will also adjust the release time to the morning so everyone gets a day to answer.
