David Clark received a package in the post. Inside was a man’s left-arm. Clark repackaged the arm and sent it to Roger Miller. After looking at the arm, Miller sent in onto Martin Butler. When he received it he burnt it in the fire. What had happened in the past to make these people behave in this way?

You will need to ask questions to solve this mystery. If you have already heard the story before, please do not immediately post the answer.

Can I ask multiple questions?

1) Is it a real arm (ie. a human arm that came off a body)?

2) Were any of these men part of a plot to kill someone and the arm is evidence?

3) When Martin Butler burnt the arm - was it to get rid of evidence?

Are the names of the persons involved important, or could you have used different names for the people in this story with the same result?

Left arm is significant...hmm....

Was the person who's arm got taken off left handed or needed to use the left arm for something in particular like sports?

The man who sent the package and all the men who received it were right-handed. That is an important clue.
