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?
Were there other persons/objects around the victim‘s corpse ? (Persons as in visitors, yes.  Objects yes.)
Did someone make a wax sculpture out of the victims body?
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?
Are the accomplice and the killer related to each other?
Is there only one accomplice?
Is the murderer attracted to the celebrity?




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?
Was the victim related to one of them ?
Did someone touch the victim's body, therefore revealing the murder ? (The victim's body was processed physically but only after the crime was revealed)
Are the victim and the murderer married? (To each other, I mean) :-D
Is the murderer attracted to the accomplice?
Was the original wax statue destroyed?
Was there money involved in the crime?
Was there jealousy(crime of passion) involved in the crime?


IRRELEVANT / IMPOSSIBLE TO KNOW

Did someone missed the victim?  (People did miss the victim because they thought the victim was dead, and I don't think that's what you mean?)





I think you've come very close to solving the whole thing, do you want to continue asking questions or do you me to post the full reveal?  (It's quite detailed!)

Or does anyone want to take a stab at what happened?

Let us solve it , unless it is so detailed that noone can guess it !

I forgot one important question:
Does either the accomplice or the killer own the museum ?

I agree - let's solve it!

Are there more than one lookalike involved?
Does the murderer or the accomplice steal the original wax statue?
Is pornography somehow involved?
Is the killer male?
Is the method of murder important? (That is, are we supposed to guess it, or is the mystery how they got rid of the body?)

Are killer and accomplice siblings ?
Is the wax figure now used for a special purpose ?
Was the initial intention not to hide the victim but to
get hold of the wax figure ? ( the corpse thus
only substituting the wax figure and the victim
looking like the wax figure was just right
for this purpose)?
Is the wax statue of great value, in a financial or emotional sense ?

Was the victim‘s corpse found in a vertical position?

Sorry for the ambiguous question, what I wanted to ask is:

Did something bump into the victim's corpse ?

Did the victim's face look like the wax figure's face beforehand
(i.e. it was not modeled with wax to look like the wax figure's face) ?
Did the preserving agent drip from the victim's corpse ?
Is the victim older than the killer ?
Was it a ritual murder ?

So, this is what we know: The male killer is a mortician. He has a female accomplice who makes wax statues for the museum. The female victim, who is a lookalike for a celebrity the killer is attracted to (as far as I understand it), is killed by injecting embalming fluid (or something of the sort). Then the accomplice makes her look like the wax statue (of the celebrity), and they swap them to hide the body. Due to all the visitors and their body heat, the body deteriorates and eventually begins to smell, which is when the murder is discovered.


What we don't know, is the motive. It's not revenge, money, shutting the victim up, nor a crime of passion.

Does the murderer gain on the victim's death?
Does the accomplice gain on the victim's death?
Does the celebrity gain on the victim's death?
Is the murderer attracted to the accomplice?
Did the lookalike no longer look like the celebrity?

Thanks for the summary, heltenjon !
The accomplice must be the male killer's sister
From how I understood it, the victim's face didn't have
to be treated with wax, since it actually looked like the
wax figure already, I may be wrong in that, because I
didn't put my question precisely enough, will do that by editing my last post
This question was answered with YES:
Was the skin of the victim‘s face visible for the people passing by ?
We don't know the motive and how the victim was murdered, if the preserving agent
caused the death or if she was already dead when her blood was replaced by the agent
Also, it is not clear yet how the murder was discovered
It is obvious that something in the plan went wrong, otherwise the murder would not have
been discovered

Great riddle, I wish I had 20% of CaptainD's fertile imagination :-)

"Also, it is not clear yet how the murder was discovered

The murder was discovered after the body began to decompose... something that had previously been prevented.  The initial plan worked perfectly, but something happened to mess up the long-term plan to conceal it...
