Solution - As most of you figured out - If Mr. Lacy was innocent he would have assumed that his wife was shot when he saw the gun and would not have known that she was clubbed to death with it.
Yes, our famous detective Hugh Dunnit is back to solve another mystery. This time he has been called to the scene of the murder of Lacey Wate who had been fatally struck on the head with the butt of a pistol. The .38 had been found near the body. Hugh Dunnit's brother Howie Dunnit was the first to arrive at the scene. He had already telephoned Lacy's husband at his office and told him to hurry home. By the time Mr. Wate got there the ambulance with Lacy's body in it had already driven off. He rushed up to Hugh Dunnit shouting "What happened? Where is my wife?" "I'm sorry to have to tell you this, said Lt. Dunnit, but your wife was murdered about two hours ago. Your cook found the body in the den where she had been knitting and listening to a murder mystery on her ipod." Howie Dunnit interrupted, holding the weapon wrapped in a handkerchief. "I'll take this to the lab and have it tested for fingerprints," he said. Mr. Wate's facial muscles twitched with emotion as he stared at the gun. Suddenly he grabbed Lt. Dunnit's arm and said "find the murderer who clubbed Lacey to death. I'll put up a $100,000 reward!"
"Save your money," said Lt. Dunnit. "The murderer won't be that hard to find!"
