The leg of lamb

 

Before reading

I think a perfect crime, it’s a crime that the police can't solve. a characteristic of a perfect crime could be a suicide because being able to make the crime scene look like it was a suicide and so they don't involve you, cleaned the clues in the crime scene to prove that you weren’t involucrate on it. I have read stories about crimes, but they aren’t perfect.

While reading

I think she will be caught by the police if they analyze the crime scene carefully.

After reading

Two brothers want to inherit money from his dad because he is a millionaire and if he dies all his money go to those brothers.  One night one of the brothers kills him with poison then after 30 minutes the other brother saw his father on the sofa thinking that he had fallen asleep, so he shot. When the police went to analyze the scene, when he saw the victim who had a gunshot wound he already concluded that he was killed by a gun, quickly looking at the fingerprints the police knew who killed his father with a gun. That means that the brother who killed his father with the poison had committed the perfect crime, and the other brother who had killed his dad with a gun, went to jail.
