    So a Nick wanted both men dead so planned one to fake shooting the other using "blanks"- which were infact real bullets, he could then just shoot the fake gun man and pretend to be acting in self defence.

    A Fast Kill
    Solution Value: 7

    The Case: Swami Morishi was on a hunger strike until his followers could raise two million dollars to pay off the mortgage on their cult compound. Even into the third week of his fast, the Swami kept to his routine. He would meditate in the mornings, and then meet privately with Michelle, his second-in-command, to work on any business. He would then teach in the afternoons and in the evenings tour the compound. One night, right after the tour of the kitchen, the Swami collapsed. Michelle was called from her cabin and rushed to the scene. By the time the ambulance arrived, the Swami was already dead. Michelle took over the cult until a week later when she was arrested for murder. The Swami had been poisoned with cyanide.

    The Mystery: How did Michelle poison a man who had sworn not to eat anything?

    What did this man meditate on? A carpet or a pillow? (Yes or no: Did this man meditate on the same carpet or a pillow during his hunger strike?)

    Did he use any skin cream of any sort? Lotion, acne cream, etc?

    Was he known for using some kind of perfume?

    Was the day he decided to end his fast the day he died, coincidentally?

    What he meditated on is not relevant to the case.

    No, he did not use any skin cream.

    No, he did not use any perfume.

    No, the day he died was not the day he decided to end the fast.

    Was the purpose of the meetings with Michelle to feed him? He lasted three weeks, which is near bloody impossible as most people starve to death after 2 iirc. Also cult leaders are generally hypocritical bastards.

    Anyway yeah did she feed him poisoned food, and if so was it during the business meetings?
