My brain!!!!, It hurts. I can't , I'm not good at this type of game. But if i have to pick, it's landlady, purely because i found her not suspicious. That's all. Anyway thanks for the chapter.

My bet is on the landlady, since they excluded her so easily based on appearances even though it would have been a piece of cake for her to murder Irene. In fact, it's rather strange no one suspects her.

Thanks for a chapter, especially one where we, the readers get to play a part I'm not very good at this, but since I made some notes, might as well put them to use. So, there's no signs of a struggle from her death at all, nor did it seem that anyone had tried to poison her as Ophelia was so adamant about. My guess on the cause of death was at first she had fallen to a sleeping pill(or at least something that would make you sleepy) along with a certain someone tampering with the heating in the room. The room was warm, right? Yet there's no insulation for the room, how can this be? Remember that fire extinguisher? Perhaps a fire had started before she got home, and it ended up heating the room below, Simone then tries to put it out, the landlady however(perhaps it's time to check on Simone's apartment) and says she'll deal with it. Maybe some tampering was going on here, and this is only the second part of their plan. Their you ask? the culprit(s) is Evan and Lestrade. Lestrades underling had her subordinate pick her up, so maybe a sleeping pill in disguise of a beverage or food was offered? However as I said, most likely a pill that made her sleepy, and took effect rather quickly(I doubt that the workplace and apartment are very far from each other), so as soon as she got home, she went on her bed to sleep. TL:DR: Lestrade who's in on it for the money puts Irene to sleep, and Evan holding a grudge towards her due to her deceased husband finishes her off. Read more I'm most likely wrong about how Evan played her part, but I'm sure of it being a fire as the author did emphasize carbon monoxide. Show less

I don't know about the murderer or the motive. But i would tip Priscilla. Honestly just because i found her bodyguards to weak, seemed a little suspicious to me. My main focus is speculating on the death cause. And i would think she suffocated. If you block the vault the air exchange stops. It could also explain why it was do warm, if the warm air couldn't go out it would accumulate in the room. But just a guess based on the unusally warm room and the fact that she seemed to have died while sleeping. Read more And thanks for the chapter.:) Show less

Thanks for reading and commenting, M D. Kazai! Ooo, thanks for putting out your deduction! I believe you should enjoy reading the reveal, because you're definitely right in focusing your effort in the unusually warm room! Read more

Honestly I am really bad at deducing stuff. So much so that a child might have better deduction power than me. Still I might reread this chapter to do some deduction. Anyways thanks for the chapter Solo.

Thanks for reading and commenting, Jecker! Do give it a try! I won't say that you have to post it, but it's more fun to read the answer after you've tried puzzling it out first! I myself guessed(using process of elimination) who the killer was correctly but I got the method and motive wrong!

I screwed up on my comments. Didn't know that there's no editing once the comment(s) has/have been posted. ?

Solo, you really are the most considerate, if not considerate translators out there. Thanks for not splitting the chapter for it would have been harder to get a grasp of the possible scenarios. I'll refrain from making a deduction because I'll only embarrass myself if it turns out to be far-fetched from the actual thing XD. I'll just have to wait and see. ^.^ -DetceJED

Thanks for the kind words as well as reading and commenting, DetceJD! Haha yup comments are uneditable. I can delete them though so next time you can just type the "correct" one and ask me to delete the other. Ehh, don't be shy and it's not like you have to solve everything, just shouting out your guess and reason is pretty fun too. But I won't press you to haha. Read more
