Here is today’s new puzzle…..

There are four suspects and one of them has committed a crime.  They make the following statements, but only one of them is telling the truth.  Who committed the crime?

Jon: James did it.
James: Bob did it.
Sid: I didn’t do it.
Bob: James is lying.

Yesterday I posted this puzzle…..

Your task is to identify the phrase indicated in the following types of words….

YOU JUST ME

In this instance the answer is ‘just between you and me’.

See you get on with these six:

1) SALE SALE SALE SALE

2) STAND
I

3) BRO KEN

4) R | E | A | D | I | N | G

5) TIMING TI-MING

6) THE GORILLAS MIST

If you haven’t tried to solve it, have a go now. For everyone else, the answers are below….

OK, here we go…..

1) FOR SALE

2) I UNDERSTAND

3) BROKEN IN HALF

4) READING BETWEEN THE LINES

5) SPLIT SECOND TIMING

6) GORILLAS IN THE MIST

    1. If Bob’s the killer it means James is telling the truth.
      Sid isn’t the killer, so Sid’s also telling the truth.
      Only one is telling the truth.

  1. Excellent logic puzzle, I love these!

    I’ve got the answer, won’t drop a spoiler but just go through each one and see if any statements contradict any others.

    1. But Sid said he didn’t. My Uncle Sid was always an honest man, so it’s hard to believe he did it 🙂

      Though, I note, Richard doesn’t what he did. Maybe, that’s tomorrow’s puzzle.
