The Mysterious Murder of Mr. MentumLogic Grid puzzles come with a handy interactive grid that will help you solve the puzzle based on the given clues.
Two nights ago at a dinner party, Mr. Mentum was killed by one of his guests. Detective Dens was put on the case and took statements. But the good detective is getting a tooth pulled today so you, a rookie officer, are called in to take on his case. From his notes you glean the following information about people's whereabouts and potential murder weapons:
Names: Fawn, Jake, Kyle, Lance, Sara
Rooms: bedroom, conservatory, dining room, observatory, sitting room
Weapons: candlestick, gun, knife, poison, rope
Either Lance was in the dining room, or the man with the knife was in the sitting room.
Either Jake had the rope, or Lance was in the observatory.
Either Kyle was in the conservatory, or Jake was in the bedroom.
The five suspects are Sara, the person in the bedroom, the person in the dining room, the person with the rope, and the person with the knife.
The woman with the poison was not in the dining room.
The rope was in the sitting room, and the gun was in the bedroom.
After some intense scrutinizing and a couple cups of coffee, you take your solution of each person's location and weapon of choice to the police. Since the body was found in the observatory, they know just who to bring in for extra questioning.
AnswerFawn had the gun in the bedroom.
Jake had the rope in the sitting room.
Kyle had the knife in the conservatory.
Lance had the candlestick in the dining room.
Sara had the poison in the observatory.
You bring Sara in and she confesses after a brief interrogation. Detective Dens is pleased with your good work and gives you a commemorative plaque!
