He had a delight in killing
He wanted to punish the guilty (who couldn't legally be punished)
He wanted to go out in a blaze of glory before he died due to health issues

15

Why did the murderer kill the Ten Little Indians in the order he did?

least guilty to most guilty

Why did the murderer send the solution to the police instead of leaving it unsolved?

He wanted to be recognized for his "piece of art"

What clues did the murderer leave behind? (3)

Edward Seton was guilty, so Wargrave wasn't his murderer, so logically, he had to be THE Murderer
Red Herring- connected with Dr. Armstrong's death (drowned, herring is a fish), so he must have been tricked, and the only person Dr. could have trusted was the Justice, so he must be the murderer
