A man was found dead with a cassette recorder in one hand and a gun in the other. When Detective Sherlock Holmes came in, He immediately pressed the play button on the cassette. He said, “I have nothing else to live for. I can’t go on.” Then the sound of a gunshot.
After listening to the cassette tape, Sherlock Holmes concluded that it was not a suicide, but a homicide.

How did they know?

When they pressed the play button the tape recorder started from the beginning that means someone re-winded the cassette after recording the confession,but since the gun shot is heard during the playing means the victim does not get the time to rewind the cassette so that means that he is murdered the murderer may be forced the victim at gun point to confession of suicide shot him during recording the stop the recording and re-winded the cassette and placed the gun  in the hand of dead body to make it look like suicide.

If the man shot himself while he was recording, how did he rewind the cassette tape? That means someone else had done it.
