The Riddle Thread

This thread should not drop into oblivion. So, by my necromantic powers: Rise, Riddle thread!

Imagine, if you will, a crime scene. The victim is the owner who is slumped dead on a chair and has a bullet hole in his head. A gun lies on the floor and a cassette recorder is found on the table. On pressing the play button, you hear the message ‘I have committed sins in my life and now I offer my soul to the great Lord’ and followed a gunshot.

Murder or not?

Murder. I don’t know which of these are the right clues-

  • Crime Scene
  • Victim
  • If he’d committed suicide, then you’d have to rewind the tape

Dead men don’t rewind tapes.

I hate to disappoint, but I am not a repository of riddles. I’m not even really good at solving them most of the time. Here’s one from a book I read, and I suspect you’ll be reading shortly, @Curmudge0n.

Not chest or box is now discussed. Money can be held in it, but just as we test its metal, within it there is rust.

Not too sure on this one man but these 2 lines

Bring to mind the word trust? maybe?

Other than that can not really think I guess I should have read more books because whatever this is from, I have obviously not come across or at least remembered it lol.

The answer given in the book in question, either the Wastelands or Wizard in Glass by Stephen King, is in fact trust.

Holy crap, I love King, out of his body of works one of the few books I could never get into were the dark tower series. To be fair I was really young when I read the first one and my tastes have changed a lot over the years, I should give them another go now they are complete. I admit I fell asleep half way through the film so can not judge that fairly lol.

Here’s another ancient oldie for you all :slight_smile:

What are the next 3 letters in this sequence.
