I decided to kill the old man because his evil eye troubled me and struck fear into my body.
I watched the man sleep every time the clock struck twelve for 7 nights.
I killed the old man by suffocating him. I had nothing to worry about, for the muffled sound wouldn't be heard from outside the walls.
I admit the deed!
I dismembered the corpse and pulled up the planks to put the body under them. My idea for the concealment of the body was genius! Do you still think I am mad? Could a madman have thought of this genius plan?
Three police officers came to the door because one of the neighbors had heard a scream. I welcomed them in the house and told them to search because I had nothing to worry about. The old man's body would never be found.
I told the officers to sit and rest from their hard work. While I was talking to the officers I heard a ringing noise which kept getting louder and louder. Then I yelled "It was me, pull up the planks, I admit the deed!"
