Just a heads up, but continue on with it if you like. Lateral thinking puzzles aren't about "Guess who these people are!"-- they're actually puzzles that pertain vague scenarios, and people asking Yes or No questions, answered with either "Yes" or "No". The key thing about including scenarios is that the people trying to solve said puzzles are supposed to figure out the reasons how and why the scenarios occurred. At this point, these aren't lateral thinking puzzles, rather than a guessing game of who people are based on actual events. Refer to the opening post or past puzzles to see what I mean.

Runewitt: They both died on a Friday, so no neither returned.
K&K4ever: Yes
codex biblio: NO, yes, and no.
Jun-Watarase: Sorry if my puzzle isn't quite Lateral Thinking,  but it is a bit of a challenge. Once this one is solved I will try to come up with stuff more on topic. Sorry again ^^)

Sorry that I haven't been on ^^( First off Happy Holidays to all the Lateral Thinking Peeps out there! Since my question isn't exactly on topic and I wanted to revive this thread I will go ahead and answer it so that someone else can post something more along the lines of this thread. The answer is Presidents Lincoln and Kennedy. There are some super interesting facts on the two of them so take the time to google it and find out some of them. All in all it was way too uncanny the about of similarities of these two men. Their passion/obsession was civil rights and in the end they both died because of it.

So if there is anyone out there who would like to start a more Lateral Thinking puzzle out there now is the time to submit it here for everyone to play with ^^)

Be Safe and see ya here soon!

A man and his wife were driving through through the streets. They stopped, and the husband got out of the car. When he came back, his wife was dead, and there was a stranger in the car.
