Murder or Suicide

Examine the picture and determine whether the woman was killed or she committed a suicide.

This was a murder, which was supposed to look like a suicide. These are some of the reasons:

1. The dead person has not finished their cigarette yet, which is a normal thing to do when someone commits a suicide.
2. The person is left-handed, judging by the position of the pen and the lamp, but is holding the gun in their right hand.
3. It was supposed to look like the person was writing a death note before killing themselves, but it is night and the lamp is not plugged in.

  1. The women was clearly staring left handed. Look at the soda the cigarette location in hand and the pen location. The gun was in the right hand. I would assume the women would have been facing the way looking at window and note so the blood splatter makes no sense being on wrong side. Any one holding a gun would have held it in the proper hand and sure would have set down the cigarette or in many cases finished it. Every aspect of the picture screams “murder”.
