You have to act the detective and ask your teacher questions. Use past simple, past continuous or past perfect.
Your teacher will only answer: YES or NO.
Crime and PunishmentA man got on the train and sat down in a compartment which was empty except for one lady. She took her glove off. A few hours later the man was arrested by the police. They held him for 24 hours and were then forced to let him go free.
Thirty years before, the gloved lady had been lmarried to the man on the train. She and her lover had disappeared and left the country. Before vanishing they had cut off the two middle fingers of her left hand and buried them on the garden. The police found the fingers while investigating her disappearance and accused the man of murdering his wife and burying the rest of her somewhere else. He was jailed for 30 years for a crime he had not committed.
He did not recognise her at first on the train. When she took off her gloves he did. He killed her. The police had to release him as he had served his life sentence before committing the crime.
