However, the murder of the old man is not the climax of “The Tell-Tale Heart;” it is when the police arrive at the scene of the murder (although they do not know it yet) that the unnamed protagonist reveals that he has murdered the old man and hidden his body beneath the floorboards (Poe 193). At this point the story ends and the mystery of motive unresolved.
