For this week’s puzzle: A very Sherlockian puzzle indeed! Can you figure out who the murderer was and who was murdered using the following clues? Good luck!

There are five people. One of them shot and killed one of the other five.

1. Dan ran in the NY City marathon yesterday with one of the innocent men.
2. Mike considered being a farmer before he moved to the city.
3. Jeff is a topnotch computer consultant and wants to install Ben’s new computer next week.
4. The murderer had his leg amputated last month.
5. Ben met Jack for the first time six months ago.
6. Jack has been in seclusion since the crime.
7. Dan used to drink heavily.

Sherlock Holmes arrives at the scene and immediately finds the murderer.
