    Tebbo\'s first riddle - SOLVED

    1) A man is found at the bottom of a bridge over dry land. The Coroners deduce that he died at exacly 4:37 p.m.. How did they know?

    2) A man is found in a locked vault with a head wound caused by a bullet. Coroners remove the bullet from his head and find that it is indeed the cause of death. There is no empty shell left in the gun. Why?

    3) A naked woman trapped in a rowboat about 100ft. from the shore is rescues by helicopter after being stranded for three days. Her swimsuit is hanging over the side into the water. The rescuers asked her why she did not just swim back, her reply was that there were sharks surrounding the raft. The sharks remained there all 3 days, why?

    is it because the shell is dispelled from the gun automatically?

    That, or someone killed him and threw him in a locked vault?
