Under Water

The diving bell that Slylock Fox and Max Mouse are using has snapped its chain. A rescue team can reach Slylock and Max within 20 minutes, but there are only 15 minutes of air left. What will Slylock do?

He will use the lug wrench to remove the sunken car’s tires and release their air into the diving bell.

The Bank Robber

Harry Ape robbed a bank yesterday and has been hiding in the bitterly cold forest. Max Mouse found Harry’s clothes near a hole in the pond ice. Why does Slylock Fox believe that Harry is nearby?

Slylock thinks Harry fell through the ice, and after climbing out of the water, took off his wet clothes due to the frigid temperatures. The sleuth suspects the ape is nearby because the wet clothes are still unfrozen.

The Stolen Tools

Tools were stolen from a construction site. Max Mouse found footprints and a tire track, leading him to believe there were two thieves – one walking and the other riding a bike. Even though Slylock Fox believes both tracks are related to the robbery, he suspects there was only one thief. Why?

The tire track cannot be from a bike. The tracks were left by one thief pushing a wheelbarrow, full of stolen tools.

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.
