Twenty questions - Part 2
« on: November 15, 2008, 03:23:05 PM »
Your the investigator to a scene involving a dead body. All you know is the man has been found with a round trip train ticket into the city, and upon leaving the city at the end of the day, he was found with a gunshot wound to the head and a gun in his hand.

Why?

In the interest of keeping the game a situation of deduction and reasoning, I will ask that multiple questions not be used. It's too easy for someone to just ask many randon questions and get lucky, and that is not the point of the game. The goal is to isolate who he was, why he was on the train, why he shot himself, etc., through rationale and questions based on elimination of possibilities.

And if you know the answer because you played this before, please let others figure it out.

Good Luck...  :-D

had the gun in his hand been fired?
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

did the caliber of the weapon in his hand match the shot that killed him?
