Solve the Murder Mystery!

You may ask one yes or no question each per day. I'll post answers as I review the site, giving either 'yes' 'no' 'does not apply' or 'please rephrase the question in the proper format' as my answer. First one to solve the mystery wins...well...just wins. :cool3:

Here's your only clue. Good luck!!! :

A murder was committed in front of thousands of people. Everyone thought it was an accident.

Addendum: Rapier has forwarded a guess that the RIAA did it. Sorry, that's incorrect.

Could the thousands of people be considered normal/typical (that is, not disabled)?

does "in front of" mean the thousands could actually see this event?

Well technically there are possibly thousands of ways a murder could look like an accident...

eg. driving into someone, on purpose, but pretending it wasn't...or...pretending that your gun won't fire, then bam, it ' accidentally ' goes off...

question 1: did this event take place inside a building?

question 2: did it take place at an event that thousands of people attended?

question 3: was a non-conventional murder weapon used( something besides guns, knives, etc... )?

Lol see how quickly we cheat? It's supposed to be ONE yes/no question per person per day.

Keezel: Romantic attachment does not apply other than establishing motive. We don't really need a motive, we're just looking for who did it, how it happened, and who it happened to.

Eg - rule violation. I will answer your question 2, but in the future limit yourself to one a day or I won't answer at all: Yes.

Elsparrow - same as for Eg, I'll answer your question 2: Yes, you could consider it a weapon in this context, but it's not normally used as such.

Let's make this last and give everyone time to think! ONE question per day per person! Make your questions count - look at where I've answered yes and no to others, and ask accordingly! Great progress today guys :cool3:
