Instructions: 'Alive' means alive AND innocent (ie even though the murderer is technically alive, it does not count as an 'alive villain'). Consequently, if you mark 'alive' for the murderer, you lose. Adjacent includes diagonals. A villain can 'SEE' everyone in its row, column AND diagonals.
In this logic puzzle, mark each villain as (A)live, (V)ictim, or THE (M)urderer (only 1). Remember, ruling out 1 choice still leaves two possibilities.
