Re: Devanté's Riddle House

Erm...in a way, yes. But I'd be lying if I said you were completely correct. The correct answer is associated with your way of lateral thinking.

91. The thieves spent 6 hours in the home of Ted Duda. At first they searched the house, trying to find where he hid his huge diamond, valued at half a million dollars.
Then they tried beating the information out of him. They fled at dawn, fearing detection.
Fatally hurt, Duda crawled to his desk and typed a note to his partner, John Madden. In a desperate race to type it before he bled to death, he near blindly typed his death note.

It read:

John -- four men tried to make me tell where I had hidden the diamond. At first they looked through the house, raving like madmen. Then, in desperation, the barbarians split open the cat! When all failed, they beat me, but I did not tell. I'm dying. The diamond The diamond is hidden in the vane."

"Duda died this morning," Inspector Winters told Dr. Haledjian. "We have his murderers, but not the diamond."
The inspector handed Haledjian a copy of the death note. "We took down the vane, the weathervane, a math, but there was nothing inside it," the inspector said, "We're still searching the house."
Haledjian read the note and said, "You also failed to find the body of the cat, but you did find a broken barrel of liquor."
"Why, yes," said the inspector. "The thieves were throrough. They broke the barrel and every bottle in Duda's little wine cellar."
"How many walking sticks did Duda own?"
The inspector looked puzzled. "One."
"It must be hollow," said Haledjian. "You'll find the diamond inside it."

The inspector found the diamond, but how did Haledjian know?

92. The 6 foot 4, 240-pound body of Earl Moon lay on the tile veranda amid a welter of shattered glass. Dr. Haledjian studied the left side of Moon's jaw, which was bruised outside and bloody inside from a cut caused by two broken teeth. The bruise on the back of the head showed where Moon was struck tiles. The back of the dead man's sports jacket was stitched with glass splinter.
"Apparently somebody punched Moon awfully hard on the side of the jaw," mused Haledjian, "Moon was thrown backward and he crashed through the sliding glass door. Falling, he struck his head on the veranda tiles and died of a broken neck."
"That confirms the account, we have from Buster Epps, a neighbor," said Inspector Winters.
Epps moved from behind the inspector and stared in disbelief at the body. He still seemed in a state of shock.
"I was tending my roses about half an hour ago when I noticed Moon and a stranger standing near this glass door. The stranger was not quite as tall as Moon, but just as broad. And he handled himself like a professional boxer. They seemed to be quarreling, but the door was shut and I couldn't overhear distinctly," continued Epps. "Suddenly, Moon swung his fist. The stranger sidestepped expertly and hooked a left to Moon's jaw. Moon went crashing through the glass. He struck his head -- I could hear the crack! The stranger fled immediately. I called the police when I couldn't overtake him."
"Now now, Mr. Epps," said Haledjian, "Suppose you tell us what really happened."

Why didn't Haledjian believe Epps?

94. Dr. Evelyn Williams, a London-born New York dentist, was preparing to take a wax impression of the right lower teeth of his patient, Dorothy Hoover. Silently, the door behind him opened. A gloved hand holding an automatic appeared.
Two shots sounded. Miss Hoover slumped over, dead.

--
"We've got a suspect," Inspector Winters told Dr. Haledjian at his office an hour afterward. "The elevator boy took a nervous man to the fifteenth floor -- Dr. Williams has one of six offices on that floor -- a few moments before the shooting. The description fits John 'Torpedo' Burton.
"Burton is out on parole," continued the inspector, "I had him picked up at his rooming house. As far as he knows, I want to question him about a minor parole infraction."
Burton was ushered in and angrily demanded, "What's this all about?"
"Ever hear of Dr. Evelyn Williams?" said the inspector.
"No! Why?"
"Dorothy Hoover was shot to death less than two hours ago as she sat in the chair in Dr. William's office."
"I've been sleeping all afternoon."
"An elevator operator says he took a man answering your description to the fifteenth floor a moment before the shots."
"It wasn't me," snarled Burton indignantly, "I look like a lot of guys. I ain't been near a dentist's office since Sing Sing. This Williams, I bet he never saw me, so what can you prove?"
"Enough," snapped Dr. Haledjian, "to send you to the chair!"

What was the basis of Haledjian's remark?

93. A man lives on the 50th floor. When returning home, this man takes the elevator to the 20th floor and walk the rest of the way up by stairs. Other nights, he would take the elevator straight up to the 50th floor.
Why does he do this?

Re: Devanté's Riddle House

Hey! My riddle was censored.

All_Is_Number, those are all correct, except for 93 and 95.

95 - You're both on the right track, and you're quite close to the answer, but no dice, I'm afraid.

#DRH 96. The more you take from me, the more I increase in size. What am I? Do I exist?

#DRH 97. You can have me but cannot hold me;
Gain me and quickly lose me.
If treated with care I can be great,
And if betrayed I will break.
What am I?

#DRH 98. My tines be long,
My tines be short
My tines end ere
My first report.
What am I?

#DRH 99. My thunder comes before the lightning;
My lightning comes before the clouds;
My rain dries all the land it touches.
What am I?

#DRH 100. I can be cracked, I can be made.
I can be told, I can be played.
What am I?
