Mystery three

Old Mr. Teddy was found dead in his study by Mr. Fiend. Mr. Fiend recounted
his dismal discovery to the police:

"I was walking by Mr. Teddy's house when I thought I would just pop in for a

visit. I noticed his study light was on and I decided to peek in from the
outside to see if he was in there. There was frost on the window, so I had
wipe it away to see inside. That is when I saw his body. So I kicked in the
front door to confirm my suspicions of foul play. I called the police
immediately afterward."

The officer immediately arrested Mr. Fiend for the murder of Mr. Teddy.

How did he know Mr. Fiend was lying?

I disagree with Question 1... just because there is no mail on Sunday, doesnt mean she couldnt check it. I often check mail on Sunday because I didnt get to it on Saturday, or even Friday!... off hand i would say the butler did it... who polishes shoes in a pantry??? weirdo!

Question 2 was easy....

you got me on ques 3....
