Cottage mystery

A wealthy man lives alone in a small cottage. Being partially handicapped, he had everything delivered to his cottage. The mailman was delivering a letter one Thursday when he noticed that the front door was ajar. Through the opening he could see the man’s body lying in a pool of dried blood. When a police officer arrived he surveyed the scene. On the porch were two bottles of warm milk, Monday’s newspaper, a catalog, flyers, and unopened mail. The police officer suspects it was foul play. Who does he suspect and why?

Заможен мъж живее сам в малка вила. Тъй като мъжът е инвалид всичко нужно му се доставя вкъщи. Пощальонът доставял писмо, един четвъртък, когато забелязал, че входната врата е открехната. Надниквайки вътре, той вижда тялото на мъжа, заобиколено от локва засъхнала кръв. Когато полицаите пристигат на мястото, те много внимателно оглеждат местопрестъплението. На верандата имало две бутилки топло мляко, вестникът от понеделник, каталог, рекламни брошури и неотворена поща. Полицията подозира, че става въпрос за хладнокръвно убийство. Кого подозират и защо?

  1. Noting that it’s dried blood, I’d assume it’d been a while since the murder. And with the Monday papers, one would assume he passed away after Monday. Question is: why would the milk be warm if that’s the case? Unless it’s the milkman who delivered the milk even after he killed the man?

  2. Well he’s another thought: why weren’t Tuesday’s and Wednesday’s papers there too? Maybe it’s the newspaper man himself after all
