Case File: Commendation: The Diamond Question Mark

Police Reports

Case Description: The International Society of Riddle and Puzzle Solvers awarded Daedalus the Diamond Question Mark, their highest award. After Daedalus escaped from Crete, King Minos went around offering a reward to anyone who could pass a thread through a spiral seashell. Minos came to the court of King Cocalus, where Daedalus was hiding, and Daedalus solved the puzzle by tying a thread to an ant and putting a drop of honey on one end of the shell. The little ant crawled all through the seashell to get the honey, towing the thread every inch of the way.
