#2 Twins Under Arrest

“Get off of me!” a man shouted, shoving the business suit-wearing man away from him.  “I don’t want anything to do with you,” he declared.  When the well-dressed man turned a gun on him, the injured party’s eyes widened in shock.  The blast hit him squarely between the eyes. Who knew that a health and fitness guru could be a straight shot as well?

“I tell you,” the witness told police later, “I wouldn’t have believed it if it hadn’t of been my own twin.”  The police looked between the two men on either side of the glass, both in handcuffs, and shook their heads in wonderment. Who was the murderer and who was in the wrong place at the wrong time?

The resolution, as it happened, came down to a red hair found on the jacket of the murdered man.  One of them, apparently, had dyed their hair before being captured.  So much for being identical twins!
