    A man with a straw in his hand was found dead in a field. What happened?

    To solve the mystery, ask me questions that you might think that are relevant. I can only reply yes or no.

    P.S.: If you already knew this mistery, leave it for others to solve, plz. It is only defying if it is solved for the first time, without any "hints" (google, external or experienced).

    Died grasping at straws? Possibly he fell from a balloon, and the straw was from the wicker basket?

    Yes, he fell from a ballon, but he did not fell when grasping at straws. One part of the mystery is solved. You have to find out why he felt from a baloon.

    No. He was found alone.

    He was in the balloon gondola with a hula dancer. He made improper advances, and was knocked over the side by a blow from her enticing hips. His last act was to snatch a straw from the hula skirt (should satisfy the wierdness aspect).

    You won't solve the mystery if you don't ask simple, objective questions. It is known that he was in a balloon, but what happened? Ask me questions, so I can reply "yes", "no", "irrelevant", "could be"...

    I don't care how he died. I'm just glad he's dead. I hated that sucker.

    Was the straw grasped in the right or left hand? And was the victim right handed or left handed?

    OK, question: Although he was found alone, was anyone in the balloon with him?

    That is irrelevant. That is the only think I can say. The victim could be left or right handed. Lets just say if the victim was left handed, probably the straw would be in his left hand.

    There are lots of factors to explore. A balloon was indeed involved, but could be in several ways.

    Does the victim carry any identification? More importantly, do they have any cash on them?:D

    Could have or could not. The fact of carrying identification or having cash would be indiferent.

    P.S.: There is only one victim.

    It wouldn't be indifferent if you had my re-modeling bills to pay!:eek: Can I at least fence his watch?

    What nature of basket is under the balloon? (And can I get anything from selling the balloon?)
