Wild guess, but it the guy playing monopoly? More specific he is using the car token and lands on his opponents hotel which he doesn't have the money to pay the rent for.

Yup. Congrats.

Next Puzzle: A man is found dead, deep in a forest. All he has on is a swimming trunk, snorkel, and facemask. Though, the nearest lake was 10 miles away, and the Ocean was even further. How could he have died?

While swimming in the lake did he get scooped/sucked into a giant bucket under a helicopter that was using the water from the lake to put out a forest fire? I'm just thinking of that old urban legend.

Nope!

But that leads to a hint!: Think/ask about where they are.

Instead of answering any of those, I'm gonna repost the puzzle, and the hint I gave you.

He blew a kiss to her from above. She said to him, "I love you", and died. Why did this happen?

Hint: Think/Ask about where they are. <--- So far, there's... no reaction to the hint.

- - -

I'll scrub this one, because it's pretty tough. I had a hard time figuring it out, myself, but looking at how it progressed... this one will be more interesting.

Next Puzzle: She came into work with a new pair of shoes on, but because he didn't notice, he killed her.

Hint: When I asked you to think/ask about the setting of the PREVIOUS puzzle, I'm giving you the hint that they were in the same location.

1. uh...the last thing i could come up with, is that a woman and a very large man were making love and he crushed her. farfetched...but that's all i got.

2. "she" is some sort of insect

Ok for the first one, I would have to ask if they were in some sort of play?

and the second one I would have to ask if the girl was some sort of cosmo girl (freeke)?
