Does this take place in the 21st century? 20th? 19th? earlier? Relevant?
Is it relevant where, that is, in what country, this happens?

RECAP:
How They Died And Who Killed Them:
Three people were killed. Two men and a woman. Man #1 committed suicide after bludgeoning Man #2 and strangling the woman.

Man #1 and the woman are on a bed and Man #2 was on the floor.

The woman was cheating causing somewhat of a love triangle.

Why were they killed?
All the info is there, just needs to be pieced together

Did he regret his actions? Was he just too depressed with the situation? Did he realize the man he had killed was his brother, friend or something like that? Did the woman manage to say something right before she died which made him regret? Was he going to die anyway?

********SPOILER****************

Man #2 sneaked into his lover's bedroom window thinking her husband had already left for work. To his surprise Man #1 was just getting ready to leave. Not yet realizing his wife had been cheating, he attacks the "intruder" hitting him in the head with the but of the his gun. Not knowing his own strength it killed Man #2. Hearing all the ruckus, the wife runs to see what happened. Upon seeing her lover's death, she tries to explain to her husband about the affair. Aggravating him even more, he pushes onto the bed and strangles her. After a few minutes he realizes he doesn't want to live without his wife so he takes his own life.
