Crack the Case #2

Quick rules summary: Ask any yes/no question, and I can only answer with one of these seven responses:

  1. Yes
  2. No
  3. Yes and No
  4. Irrelevant
  5. I don't Know
  6. Define what you mean by...
  7. Rephrase Your Question

 

The Case - Easy

Wayne lies dead in the water, wearing a plastic raincoat.

 

The Mystery

Who killed Wayne, how, and why? How did his murderer get caught?

Is Wayne in a puddle on a street or sidewalk?


Good ideas are usually just bad ideas a stubborn person eventually fixed.

McBehrer is the sole winner of this game... And McBehrer, I would step carefully should you find your way down dark alleys. More than one vote said simply, "McBehrer must die."

Define what you mean by "drown of his own stupidity."

Define what you mean by "his own action." (Just so we don't go back and forth, you haven't determined what the body of water is.)

I think I see what Foote is getting at.

Was Wayne's death a suicide attempt?

If not, was Wayne his own murderer?

If not, was there a human agent that murdered Wayne?

Was anyone besides Wayne involved in his death?

 

Was Wayne's murder premeditated?

Had Wayne met the murderer previously, i.e. on some other occasion before the murder?


Just assume I'm always doing that.

Damn it, Ronway!

Is the fact he was wearing a raincoat of significance? If so, was he wearing it properly (ie the right way round, and not, I dunno, tangled up it it somehow, or whatever)?
