645km apart? That's good range, and good accuracy (assuming it wasn't an accident).

Yeah, all in all, if I had to be murdered I think I'd prefer a heavy caliber round to the base of the skull.  Just sayin'...

I have solved the mystery.  Arrest JoergSprave.  He's German.  He has crossbows galore.  He's obviously a bit crazy.  If it wasn't Joerg, I'll bet he knows the person whodunit.

The evidence against Joerg Sprave

I was looking up punt guns Punt gun in action and I came across Joerg.  As I had read about China's famous chu-ko-nu repeater crossbow, I was interested to see what Joerg had done.  Now he looks super guilty.  I admit that I am also intensely jealous of Joerg as I would like to own a crossbow or two, but presently can't justify the expense.

i was at county fair in NY several weeks ago, they had Gatling punt gun there, do not know who well it shot, but it looked like a work of art, handcrafted from wood, with a tripod, and it was a life size model,

FFS! A gatling punt gun?  Are we expecting swarms of velociraptors?

You MONSTER! Joerg is doing what every red blooded male would love to do. Obviously you haven't seen his skill saw blade crossbow at work. The man has no need for arrows (bolts). I applaud his insanity and disregard for personal safety. Thanks to him, I can now live vicariously through Joerg without fear of self discombobulation. The man is a national treasure.B)

/why yes, I am a crossbow enthusiast.

There was an update on this a few weeks ago. Police are thinking it might be a strange murder/suicide pact.

Wow... If I were suicidal, I think I could find an easier passage than being ambushed unawares by a crossbow bolt :(   Imagine the archer being a poor shot and getting that thing in the guts...
