The murder was so shocking, the police incorrectly thought the killer was also an arsonist.

True story, possible quickie, no gory details required.

to be sure: I am assuming that there is a murderer (HAM?) and a victim (HAM?HAF?...), right? And that the victim truly died due to the murderer's actions. I am also assuming that the police does not know the killer's identity. Am I correct?

The murder was so shocking --> did it happen for: electroshock? accident? burn? drowning? poisoning? explosion? gun shot? through a weapon (knife? sword? ax?)? mechanical manipulation? jumping from an height? war crimes?

the police incorrectly thought the killer was also an arsonist. --> were there evidences of a burn? Was the victim burned? was the body of the victim recognizable? Did police think that he/she was arsonist because of something they thought he/she did before the murder? During? After? Did he/she do it in reality? Did he/she do it to mask the murder? To cancel evidences? By accident?

the police incorrectly thought the killer was also an arsonist. --> does this influence the investigations? Did they look for the killer somewhere relevantly? did the police deduce it from the murder? Is the killer a serial killer? Did he kill a person? More people? If so, all in once? In different time slots? Did the murders have something in common? Something that led the police think about an arsonist as killer?

Are any of thee relevant: matches? fire extinguisher? cigarette? lighter? explosion? flames? fireplace? firemen? fireworks? flammable substances? chemistry? cookers/stove? oil? Halloween? wood?

was something made to the victims by the murderer after having killed them? If so, to hide the traces/evidences? Did the murderer beheaded the victims? Broke their bodies up?
Were all three victims killed with the ax? Were they killed all at the same time? Was the ax grasped by the killer (or maybe it was part of a trap/engine)? Can the murder be called: a sacrifice? an offer? a revenge? a war act? a sentence? a jealousy act? a rob? an accident? others?

Interaction fire-gases/wisps relevant? Did someone leave the gas on?
Was a fire going on when the murder took place? Was it summer? was there a fire in the nearby?

Did the murder happen: in a private place(house?)? in a public place?

Are the several victims all human? Are any of them human?

Did the murderer actually intend to kill anyone?

Was the ax used to chop firewood? To chop a tree down? We’re the victims in the tree? Under it?

Did the murderer beheaded the victims? Broke their bodies up? Irr.
Were all three victims killed with the ax? Were they killed all at the same time? Was the ax grasped by the killer (or maybe it was part of a trap/engine)? Yes to all, in fact, but completely irr.
Can the murder be called: a sacrifice? an offer? a revenge? a war act? a sentence? a jealousy act? a rob? an accident? others? Irr, as far as we know it was without a real motive.

Interaction fire-gases/wisps relevant? No. Did someone leave the gas on? No, good thought.
Was a fire going on when the murder took place? No. Was it summer? Irr. was there a fire in the nearby? No.

Did the murder happen: in a private place(house?)? Yes, the victims' home. in a public place?

Was the fire started inside the house? Yes. in the same room where the murders took place? Yes, or very close. in the same room where the bodies were discovered? Yes, or very close.
Was the person who started the fire inside the house when they started the fire? Yes. were they in the house when the murders happened? No. did they know about the murders? Yes.

Was the fire-starter a first responder? Someone else trying to save the victims? Is the profession of anyone relevant here? If so, the fire-starter’s? The murderer’s? Someone dead’s?


Do we need to discover anything else about the dead people? Do they have a relevant relationship to the murderer? To the fire-starter? Are the victims all related to each other? Parent(s) and child(ren)?

Is it relevant what was set aflame? If so, paper? Clothing? Matches? Upholstery? Can we rule out things like curtains, carpet, etc., that might not be part of the house but would probably cause the house to go up, given that the house wasn’t on fire? Or was it something like that, but the fire was put out quickly?

Was the fire put out quickly?

Hints:

1. The time period is relevant.

2. The puzzle statement is literally true: the belief that there had been arson occurred specifically because the murder was a shocking one.

The firestarter [twisted firestart], does his profession still exist today? If it does, does it exist but with a relevant change?

Would this situation not happen today because of: changes in technology? Changes in customs/traditions/common behaviours? Changes in societal roles and expectations? Changes in living situations? Changes in the way houses are built? Changes in how homes are heated? Changes in someone else's job, other than the firestarter? Changes in building materials?

Is the time of year relevant?

Does the firestarter have a profession that would regularly have him visiting this family at home? Is he a doctor? A vet? Mailman? Milkman? Other type of delivery person? Oh hell, I think we've established that the firestarter was a HAM, and midwifery is a "female" profession, but...midwives relevant?

Would this situation not happen today because of: changes in technology? This. Changes in customs/traditions/common behaviours? This would also make the situation unlikely. Changes in societal roles and expectations? Changes in living situations? Changes in the way houses are built? Changes in how homes are heated? Changes in someone else's job, other than the firestarter? Changes in building materials?

Is the time of year relevant? No.

Was it electrical? Was the thing in the house before he came in? Was it part of the house? Like a fireplace?
