Mystery Logic Puzzle 3

Genre: Logic Puzzle Rating: 6 - Medium to hard 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, telephone cord, or closet) is part of the solution. In this case, if Ms. Bluebird is the murderer, then the telephone cord and the closet did not play a part in the murder. See if you can figure out whodunit with what weapon in what room.

  1. Ms. Bluebird committed the murder in the closet with the telephone cord. (1)
  2. Prof. Periwinkle killed the victim with the baseball bat in the den. (1)
  3. Miss Crimson used the poison in the garage. (0)
  4. Ms. Bluebird did it with the shotgun in the den. (1)
  5. The murder was committed in the washroom or the foyer by Mr. Kelly. (0)
  6. Sgt. Saffron did it with the telephone cord in the bedroom. (0)
