Pacman was running around a maze, eating pills, and presumably went the wrong way. Blinky, Pinky, Inky or Clyde touched him.

WELL DONE, GUROK! Man, that was a great leap of intuition! You are a true detective. I really thought the round would last a tad longer... (laugh)

Over to you if you want one, or the floor is open if not.

Genius!  Well done you (assuming you're right) and well done Mandle (assuming it's right).

Cheers! I thought it was a rather good one if I do say so myself... 8-)

Thanks, Mandle! It was a very lucky guess, but after I'd made it, I was pretty sure of it. I was just reading through the clues again at work today and it struck me.

Let's see if I can do this.

Case #19 - A man is found dead, slumped in the recliner of a hotel room. There are chocolates on his lap, but he wasn't poisoned. What happened?

Did he receive the chocolates as some kind of warning message?
Is the mafia involved in this story?
Did he eat any of the chocolates?
