Question

Guest

After receiving a call from an alarmed neighbor, the C.S.I. team arrives at the scene to find Mekal lying on a lounge chair in his own back yard, dead. “I didn’t hear or see anything suspicious,” said the neighbor who met the agents at the perimeter of the taped-off area. “I thought he was just sunbathing until I noticed that he was turning blue instead of tan.”

The investigators thoroughly examined Mekal and the scene. “Well, I’m baffled!” says one investigator to the other. “There’s absolutely no sign of foul play: the scene is clear, his body appears unharmed, and from what I understand, he was quite a swimmer and was in peak physical condition.”

“I concur,” said the other C.S.I.; “I have absolutely no doubt that the neighbor is telling the truth and I see no evidence that there was anyone else on the property. Heck, except for his tacky swim trunks, I see nothing out of the ordinary here.”

Back at headquarters, the following day, the investigators meet with the Coroner to see if he had uncovered something to solve the mystery of Mekal’s death. “Well, first off,” reported the Coroner, “the toxology report came back clear, and all tissue samples showed nothing irregular except the expected trace amounts of chlorine and sun tan oil...nothing at all harmful.” The Investigators looked at each other and shook their heads in confusion; “Well, what about internally?” they asked.

“That’s where things get interesting,” said the Coroner with a smirk on his face. “The autopsy showed that he did not die of natural causes.” he raised his eyebrows and continued, “In fact, what I found was a little shocking…”

How did Mekal die???

Nope. Mekal was happy as could be. Plus, toxology was negative and there was no physical harm to his body...not even a puncture wound of any variety.

Was he even dead in the first place when they came to investigate?

Nothing in the OP stated he was...

Maybe he was just unconscious when they investigated and they killed him during the autopsy.

I'm guessing it had to do with the

"tacky swim trunks" and the turning blue instead of tan...

asphyxiation? His swim trunks were actually something that suffocated him...

Or I know, it was those nasty 21 spotted fuzzy aliens again! ;P

that mekal was just passed out from a hard night partying. It was the coroner that killed him. Mekal had been given a roofie. He had thrown the party the night before. Too bad the drug knocked him out that hard and fooled the CSI investigators....

If he had suffocated, how would he then have removed the object from around his neck or off of his face? Remember...there was nothing unusual about the scene...nothing out of place.

I'll give you a hint: He didn't die during childbirth!

Lol I'll bet the 21 spotted fuzzy aliens were on their way to get him, but the magic of the Death Tablet got him first... ^_^

I'll bet the neighbor climbed the fence and jumped over right into the pool, making sure there weren't any footprints. Then, he/she drowned Mekal and placed him on the lounge chair, grabbed his towel to dry off, placed it on the ground, stepped on it so there weren't any footprints, climbed the fence and grabbed the towel. Then replaced the towel with a dry one and called the cops.

Am I even close with this one?

Or

He was poisoned with chlorine (bleach), trace amounts of it cam e out of his pores...

but don't you think that if he somehow consumed Chlorine, it would have killed him instantly? And there were no signs of it around the body. Plus, I think excess amounts of Chlorie would have shown up in the tox report.

Trace amounts of Chlorine were found on his skin because he was a swimmer.

Keep trying! You guys are coming up with some great senerios!

His skin turned blue from mercury and the trace was gone but he swallowed too much water.???

I'm not sure that's medically possible.

Lol...must solve Mekal's murder to clear myself of suspicion...;P

he choked on something...ice?

or he swallowed dry ice...

well, I suppose the ice theory would work if he happened to be carrying a piece of ice in his mouth when he sat down. But wouldn't the dry ice burn his mouth and throat?
