Murder Mystery IV

Question

Guest

Just Like anyone who reads the murder mysterys. I'm startin to get sick of this jumpin to conclusions things...

But here's another one.

You know the drill, murder scene, our detective shows up, and interrogates the first people he sees.

The man was killed by a hanging, up on the attic.

The man that our detective interrogates says "I was coming home from grociery shopping,

when I looked through the attic window and saw (name of dead guy, whatever your want)

with a noose around his neck.

Then I saw him kick a stool he was standing on and he started to choke.

I needed to grab the keys out of the car, and took a moment to find them in my panic.

But by the time I got to the attic. he was dead."

Our detective then cuffs the man... blah blah blah.

How did he know?

unless you have x-ray vison, you wouldn't, on ground level, be able to look through an attic window and see someone kick over a stool.

Thats what I was thinking the first time I read it. This is the only flaw I see in the story currently now.

You can't see a stool in an attic from street level. The whole story could be made up if the grocery store was on the same block and he walks to it, not drives. But yeah, its the stool deal.
