Does or did the killer work at the museum?
Was the crime detected because the preserved body got damaged?
Did the killer accidentally kill the lookalike instead of the celebrity?
Did the killer make a wax sculpture out of the victims body?
Did the killer replace a real wax sculpture with the preserved body?
Was this a new sculpture the killer created from the lookalike (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/House_of_Wax_(1953_film))?

This is much harder than I thought
after the wax museum was revealed.....
I concentrate on how the murder was discovered:

Did a fire cause the discovery of the murder ?
Did the victim fall over, e.g. someone accidentally
pushed it ?
Did  a natural decay process cause the crime
to be discovered?

Some good questions in the last set!!

I've had to give some slight clues with one or two of the answers...

Spoiler: ShowHide

Case #63

The victim was seen by thousands of people over a period of several months without anyone realising that a crime had been committed.


YES

Is the committed crime a murder ?
Was the victim‘s body preserved in some kind of medium ? (sort of... slightly tricky to answer this one with just yes or no!)
Was the victim‘s body easily visible to people passing by ?
Was the victim‘s body complete, i.e. no body parts were removed ?
Was the victim human?
Was the crime discovered ?
Was the skin of the victim‘s face visible for the people passing by ?
Was the victim‘s body preserved from inside (its body) ?
Was the victim‘s body located in a museum ?
Was the victim seen in the flesh by the thousands of people?
Was the victim on display somewhere during the several months?
Was the victim killed by one person? (Technically yes.)
Was the victim dressed up in some way?
Did the killer replace something/someone with the victim‘s corpse ?
Did the victim look like that someone/something ?
This is probably obvious, but was the museum a wax museum?
Did heat play a role ? (Difficult to answer... in a sense it probably did)
Is the victim a lookalike of a celebrity? (YES!  Though it's a celebrity I made up for this riddle not a real-life one.)
Did a natural decay process cause the crime to be discovered?



NO

Was the victim surrounded by some sort of gaseous fluid?
Was the victim surrounded by some sort of liquid fluid? (Though in a very small sense this could be true)
Was the victim surrounded by a vacuum ?
Was the victim still alive (for most or all of the time) when seen by these people?
Was the victim a well-known or famous before he/she was killed? (The victim was not famous for who they themselves were)
Did the victim look like a mummy ?
Did the people seeing the victim realize they were looking at a dead body? (At least, not until something went wrong with the plan)
During the months on display, did the victim move in some way ?
Is the museum a museum of history ?
Is it a museum of famous murders?
Is the victim dressed up like a famous victim?
Has is something do do with revenge ?
Was the victim‘s face covered with wax ? (There was possibly some but certainly not "covered")
Does the killer bear resemblance to the victim?
Is the killer presumed dead to the public?
Does or did the killer work at the museum?  (Arg... this is a pretty big hint, but... not the actual killer...)
Did the killer accidentally kill the lookalike instead of the celebrity?
Did the killer make a wax sculpture out of the victims body? (Again... not the killer, but...)
Was this a new sculpture the killer created from the lookalike (If I've understood this question correctly)
Did a fire cause the discovery of the murder ?
Did the victim fall over, e.g. someone accidentally pushed it ?

There goes my Elvis theory... (wrong)


Did the rotting process generate heat, thereby melting the wax?
Is the celebrity dead?
Is the celebrity royal?
Was the murder ordered by someone?

My Elvis theory was that the real Elvis, who is alive, of course, killed one of his lookalikes for singing out of tune/beating him in an Elvis impersonation contest.  (laugh)

Was the original wax figure out of the museum for maintainance and then swapped/transformed?
Was there no original wax figure, e.g. the body of the victim is the original?
Did the victim believe he/she were substituting as a model for the wax figure?
Is the gender of victim/killer relevant?

Never been so clueless ….
Still thinking about the rotting process :

Was the crime detected due to a bad smell ?
Was the victim's body initially frozen (when it was placed) ?
Was the victim‘s blood replaced by some preserving agent?
Is the victim one of the museum's attractions ?
Ist the victim THE attraction of the museum ?

Were there more than one people involved in killing and preserving the victim?
Did someone replace a real wax sculpture with the preserved body? (There is a caveat to this but not sure how to hint at it without telling you what it actually is...)
When the wax sculpture was made of the victim‘s body, was the victim already dead by then ? (Just for clarity - there was no wax sculpture made of the victim, the victim was made to look like a wax sculpture - I think this is what you meant but the wording is a little ambiguous)
Is the victim's position at the moment the murder was discovered of importance ? (er... tricky but I'm going to say yes in that without people close enough to the victim, the crime might have never been discovered)
Was the crime detected due to a bad smell ? (maybe not the only reason but certainly the main one)
Was the victim‘s blood replaced by some preserving agent?
Is the victim one of the museum's attractions ?
Does the accomplice(s) work at the museum?
Was the murder premeditated?
Was the plan to hide the victim as a wax figure the original plan?
Do the accomplice(s) know about the murder?



NO

Was the victim surrounded by some sort of gaseous fluid?
Was the victim surrounded by some sort of liquid fluid? (Though in a very small sense this could be true)
Was the victim surrounded by a vacuum ?
Was the victim still alive (for most or all of the time) when seen by these people?
Was the victim a well-known or famous before he/she was killed? (The victim was not famous for who they themselves were)
Did the victim look like a mummy ?
Did the people seeing the victim realize they were looking at a dead body? (At least, not until something went wrong with the plan)
During the months on display, did the victim move in some way ?
Is the museum a museum of history ?
Is it a museum of famous murders?
Is the victim dressed up like a famous victim?
Has is something do do with revenge ?
Was the victim‘s face covered with wax ? (There was possibly some but certainly not "covered")
Does the killer bear resemblance to the victim?
Is the killer presumed dead to the public?
Does or did the killer work at the museum?  (Arg... this is a pretty big hint, but... not the actual killer...)
Did the killer accidentally kill the lookalike instead of the celebrity?
Did the killer make a wax sculpture out of the victims body? (Again... not the killer, but...)
Was this a new sculpture the killer created from the lookalike (If I've understood this question correctly)
Did a fire cause the discovery of the murder ?
Did the victim fall over, e.g. someone accidentally pushed it ?
Did the rotting process generate heat, thereby melting the wax?
Is the celebrity dead?
Is the celebrity royal?
Was the murder ordered by someone?
Did the rotting process cause some kind of explosion (E.g.Due to thermal expansion) ?
Was the victim placed by the killer ? (Not by the actual killer...)
Was the depicted celebrity somehow personally involved?
Was the victim attacked by a visitor ?
Was the original wax figure out of the museum for maintainance and then swapped/transformed? (not exactly but you're along the right lines)
Was there no original wax figure, e.g. the body of the victim is the original?
Did the victim believe he/she were substituting as a model for the wax figure?
Is the gender of victim/killer relevant?  (Not especially though a heterosexual attraction is partially involved in the choice of victim)
Did several people witness the murder ?
Was the victim's body initially frozen (when it was placed) ?
Is the victim THE attraction of the museum ?  (er... tricky.  Could be for some individuals, maybe for a certain time due to its newness, but not overall.)
Does the murderer work at the museum?
Was the motive to steal the original wax statue?
Was the victim tricked into being layered in wax to pose as the wax statue?
Did the victim believe it to be an acting job (e.g. movie abut wax statue coming to life)?
Is the celebrity's occupation relevant?

IRRELEVANT / IMPOSSIBLE TO KNOW
