Although he says he went inside, he also said he did not witness the murder, and he also described the scene after the murder wrong saying that Mr. Robinson fell off the chair once he reentered the room. Although this may have been true his story was not ever proven, there were no witnesses. The story which the other Indian man gives is not believable telling the jury that a friend of five years threatened to kill him if he told anyone. As an accused person himself, there would be no reason to wait till Tom’s trial. Why did he reenter the room where Mr. Robinson had been slain?

* From the Copper Age (or Chalcolithic Age) which was the transition between the Neolithic (Stone) age and the Bronze Age, with an overlap of tools from each age. * Believed to have died in a skirmish. * 165cm tall (5ft 5 inches) and weighed about 50kg at death * Aged about 45 when he died (elderly by Neolithic standards). * Because authorities did not realise Otzi’s age (they thought it was the body of a modern person who had come to misadventure in the mountains), they did not use archaeologists to exhume Otzi- instead they used a jackhammer! It was only when he was taken to a morgue that they realised his true age, but by then they had lost some of his possessions to those taking souvenirs and had also pierced his hip in the process of removal.

Two Little Indian boys sitting in the sun; One got frizzled up and then there was one. One little Indian boy left all alone; He went out and hanged himself and then there were none. ("Agatha christie: And," 2012) After this poem was revealed in the second chapter of “And Then There Were None” written by Agatha Christie, I thought I would be able to easily solve the mystery. I was wrong. I was not able to figure out who the murderer was, who was going to die next, nor how they were going to die.
Sue Tas hid for five days then went back and told one of the neighbors what he had seen. This explanation causes more questions than answers, why would Robinson let two Aborigines into his house with no questions asked, what did Tom have to gain from killing him, was Sue Tas really an innocent bystander. He claims Tom had his gun with him but then it was revealed that Robinson's gun was missing from his mantle so where did it go? In a newspaper article during the trial it was stated that Sue Tas was threatened with death if he ever returned home and that seems fishy if he was telling the truth. There are a bunch of things that could have gone wrong with this testimony, someone could have paid the interpreter or something could have gotten lost in translation.
For example, 13 year old Jordan Brown of Pennsylvania was being tried on the murder of his father pregnant fiancé back in 2009. “Amnesty International has urged US authorities in Pennsylvania not to try Jordan in an adult court, as doing so could result in a violation of international law. If tried as an adult and convicted of first-degree murder, he would face life imprisonment without parole” ("AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL"). It is only right to sentence Jordan to life in prison because of his actions. He did not only kill his father’s pregnant fiancé, he also murdered their unborn child.
