Ok...did he kill the guy in cold blood?

Did he have a reasonable reason?

Okay, your sentence makes an assumption about the identity of the victim, and I don't really know what "cold blood" implies.

I don't know what "reasonable" reason anyone has to murder someone, but I will say that he didn't just walk up to anyone on the street. When I learned the riddle, I wasn't told a motive, and it really wouldn't be important to the story, but you are on the right track.

Cold blood means he just killed the guy, for no reason.

So, was the person he killed a friend, or a relation?

Okay, it wasn't cold blood.

Okay, I've already violated the rules a little bit. I am only supposed to be answering with a yes or no. This question has multiple parts, if I only said yes or no, it wouldn't make sense to you.

But to speed things up: Yes, the person was technically both a friend and a relation.

Did the song have something to do with love?

The nature of the song is not important.

Did he kill his wife?

Is there something signifcant in the lyrics of the song?

Is there anything significant about the location of the suicide?

Was the lack of music important?

Did he have a bad experience playing musical chairs as a child?

Was killing his wife an accident?

Did the dead air symbolize anything?

Did he kill his wife because she had an affair?

Don't know.

No

Its important, but not symbolic at all.

Zankou wrote:Did he kill his wife because she had an affair?


Most likely, but I don't know, and its not really important to the riddle. She was likely just a nagging bitch.

His wife was a radio DJ. He Killed her while she was playing a bunch of songs. When the songs were over, no one else could change em and so dead air. The guilt of it all drove him to suicide.

To narrow it down.

Was his wife a radio DJ?

Or was his wife's death the reason for the dead noise?
