        suicide. A detective arrives at the scene and goes to each floor of the building and, at each floor, goes

        into the room overlooking where the body lies below, opens the window, and looks down to the street

        below. On reaching the 13th floor, the detective repeats what he had done at each of the other floors

        and then announces that the dead man had not committed suicide but had been murdered !

Well, about to send my answers @Mi-Amigo 

Some rather obvious ones that may, in the cold hard light of day, not be quite so obvious... 🤔

Thank you @Mi-Amigo, I've just popped a feeble attempt in your inbox. 

 

Not really my scene those type of teasers, as will be evidenced by the number of questions that I have passed on. 😀
