Killer and Victim (Posted on 2012-08-26) Difficulty: 3 of 5
The sisters of Aaron Green were Betty and Clara; the name of Aaron's girlfriend was Flora Brown and, Duane and Edwin were Flora’s brothers. Their occupations were as follows:
  • Aaron was a doctor.
  • Betty was a doctor.
  • Clara was a lawyer.
  • Duane was a doctor.
  • Edwin was a lawyer.
  • Flora was a lawyer.
One of the six killed one of the other five. Here are some clues to the murder.
  1. If the killer and the victim were related, the killer was a man.
  2. If the killer and the victim were not related, the killer was a doctor.
  3. If the killer and the victim had the same occupation, the victim was a man.
  4. If the killer and the victim had different occupations, the victim was a woman.
  5. If the killer and the victim were of the same sex, the killer was a lawyer.
  6. If the killer and victim were different sexes, the victim was a doctor.
Who was the killer? Who was the victim?
