Another detective puzzle

Posted on: September 29th, 2013 by

Sherlock Holmes walks into a room and finds a man dead with a bullet hole through his head. There's a gun on the floor. He hits play on a tape-recorder nearby and it reads: "Dear God. Forgive my sins. I now offer you my soul." followed by a gun shot.

Sherlock Holmes concludes that it was murder and not suicide. Why?

  1. Sid Hollander had this to say about that:

    The tape was stopped. Under this senerio the recorder should have been on AND the tape should be at the end.
