Solve the Mystery 3

Flag Post

A man attempts suicide by jumping off the top of a tall building. He never hits the ground, nor does the fall kill him. But he does die. The coroner later discovers that the cause of death was a bullet wound to the head. The man had not handled a weapon that day, however, the case was correctly closed as a suicide. Why?

You may ask me questions that I can answer yes or no to, in order to help you solve the mystery.

If you have heard the mystery before, please do not ruin the game for others.

When you think you have found the answer, convert your answer into binary using this converter:

http://nickciske.com/tools/binary.php

And then post the binary here. This is so you can answer the mystery without giving it away to other people who still want to work on it :)

I’ll convert your binary back into text, and tell you if you got the right answer.

This mystery is just off the top of my head, so it may not be perfect. I can gladly tell you that for once, it does NOT involve cannibalism :p

The other ‘Solve the Mystery 3’ topic, I deleted, because it wasn’t going so well :p

Ummm… so ask questions, I guess o.O

Yes/No questions you say..

He never hits the ground. The coroner later discovers that the cause of death was a bullet wound to the head.

So they did examination of him while he was floating in mid-air? XP

No :p

But I still stick by the fact that he never hit the ground.

Does that mean that he got stopped by something in mid-air?

Why binary dude. I can totally read binary >.< Sorta easy too. First three bits show if it’s upper or lower-case. Last 5 show the letter.

I have a totally better idea. Give out a public RSA key, and have people encrypt theyre answer with it. This way, if someone else wants the answer they must crack the public key, and providing it’s large (ie 128bit or more), it would take a good few days / hours (depends on the key).

This brings me to a completely awesome idea. We could have a ‘talk in secret thread’, and everyone would post their public keys and people could essentially PM the people. The only thing would be that everyone else could find out that they sent a message. (lol yay, PM system but not really)

Okay. On topic, is the jumping relevant to the death?

Editundo: Did he fall into water?

Yes.

Why binary dude.

You can’t really read it by accident :p
I know people could translate it to find out the answer, that’s kind of the point, but it’s for the people who want to work out the answer themselves and don’t want to acidentally read it.

is the jumping relevant to the death?

Not sure I understand the question. If he hadn’t jumped off the building, he wouldn’t have died, no.

Did he fall into water?

No.

Ok, I have figured something out. I doubt that it’s the answer you’re looking for but considering the fact that has been revealed this far it could be:
