Mystery Logic Puzzle 1

Genre: Logic Puzzle Rating: 5 - Medium Source: William Armstrong
Brain Functions: Analysis / Deduction Hint    Solution

Your goal is to determine the murderer, the weapon, and the room by using the clues presented. There are six choices in each category:

Murder suspects:
  • Ms. Bluebird
  • Miss Crimson
  • Mrs. Ivory
  • Mr. Kelly
  • Prof. Periwinkle
  • Sgt. Saffron
  • Baseball bat
  • Cleaver
  • Dumbbell
  • Poison
  • Shotgun
  • Telephone cord
  • Bedroom
  • Closet
  • Den
  • Foyer
  • Garage
  • Washroom

The puzzle presents a series of numbered clues. Each clue is in the form of a statement followed by a number. The number indicates how many elements mentioned in the statement are part of the correct answer. For example, statement number 1 is followed by a "1" so exactly one of the three elements (Ms. Bluebird, poison, or bedroom) is part of the solution. In this case, if Ms. Bluebird is the murderer, then the poison and the bedroom did not play a part in the murder. See if you can figure out whodunit with what weapon in what room.

  1. Ms. Bluebird did it with the poison in the bedroom. (1)
  2. Mr. Kelly did it with the baseball bat in the den. (1)
  3. The weapon is either the cleaver or the shotgun. (1)
  4. Mrs. Ivory did it with the shotgun in the foyer. (1)
  5. The murderer is either Mrs. Ivory or Ms. Bluebird. (1)
