A conundrum
scholar - 17-3-2008 at 03:29

A man was found dead in his study. He was slumped over his desk and a gun was in his hand. There was a cassette recorder on his desk. When the police entered the room and pressed the play button on the tape recorder they heard..."I can't go on. I have nothing to live for." Then there was the sound of a gunshot. How did the detective immediately know that the man had been murdered and it wasn't a suicide?

Edit--Oops, this should have been in Chat or possibly Trivia.

Who rewound the tape? It couldn't have been the dead guy..., so he had to of been murdered.

Of course it might have been one of those machines that automatically rewinds when the end of the tape is reached.
