### Sherlock Holmes Riddle

Sherlock Holmes Riddle - 29 December

British Police inspects a room where there is no windows,no doors,no tables and is almost empty expect there is just a puddle of water. They found a dead women who obviously hung herself from the ceiling, but they are not able to figure out how this had happen.

Sherlock and John Watson entered the crime scene and easily able to solve the case.

How did the women die ?

1. She Died using big ice cubes which now are now melted :-)

1. She Died using big ice cubes which now are now melted :

2. you said she died using big ice cubes which are now melted but why a puddle(hole) of water was created???Because after melting ice,the water could be spread over the room,not in a puddle.

3. She died using big ice cubes which are now melted

4. she brought in a big ice cube then she got on top of it and tied the rope around her neck and waited for the ice to melt cause then she wouldnt have anything to keep her up and she would die

5. Make me understand this, how Sherlock Holmes with Watson and before that police and the poor women that died entered this room with no doors, no windows,

2. She Died using big ice cubes which now are now melted :::::::

3. She stood on a big block of ice while she had the cord around her neck, and died as it melted. Leaving her hanging.

4. How could anybody enter the room if there are no windows, or doors?

1. A hole in the roof obviously

5. How could one can enter the room,without doors????????????????

1. A room might not have doors but it has doorways

6. Sherlock and John Watson entered the crime scene

so can anybody else...

7. The lack of doors and windows is not relevant.

8. If there are no doors how did they enter the crime scene?

9. Insufficient data. What was the rope belt or whatever attached to in order to be hung from the ceiling. The amount of water on the floor? Hole in the roof or no windows or no doors means water can come in if it rains. Assuming she attached the rope or whatever to something in the ceiling cowboy style she could jump and let it tighten. With insufficient data insufficient possibilities become valid.

10. 3211000 is such number.

11. she was standing on a ice cube. it melted into a large puddle of water.
but here is my question:
if there were no windows or doors in the room, how the hell did the lady and later on , the police get in ?

12. A room can be a room without doors or windows. Pick any room without windows and take the door off its hinges. Voila room with no windows or doors.

13. Ice block.....
there were NO DOORS but entrance YES

14. Wow, was this devised by a child who speaks English as a 2nd language? First, there is the appalling spelling and grammar. Second, there is the bizarre and irrelevant information that the room lacks Windows and doors. And thirdly, what were they hanged with?? There was no rope or other material in the room! Describing them as "obviously hanged" is not sufficient information. The answer suggests she stood on a block of ice and hanged herself with a rigid noose made of ice, then stepped off or toppled the block as the noose would melt faster than the block! In other words, this is a shockingly bad puzzle, devised by someone that doesn't have the intellectual capacity to do the genre justice. BOO!
