Who committed the murder? - The Ultimate Detective Puzzle
A, B, and C are murder suspects. They make the following statements.
A: B is guilty and C is innocent.
B: If A is guilty, then C is also guilty.
C: I am innocent, but at least one of the others is guilty.
If the innocent are telling the truth and the guilty are lying, who committed the murder?
The statements of A and C are consistent with the guilt of B. They are also not contradictory.
B’s statement seems to implicate both A and C as guilty, which rings false.
I too think that B is the liar and therefore he is the one who committed murder. However, we have to assume that -
The innocent are telling the truth and the guilty are lying. 😬
If B tells the truth then C is guilty and A is innocent, but then C AND A are liars, which cannot be.
The statements above tells the following...
It's c because it's not even taking anybody's side and expecting the other two to take it's side
Here a is a friend to c and enemy of b
B has nothing
C is trying to stay far away from this incident bcoz it's the real culprit
