An Oportunity (for advanced learners) and a Request (for anyone able to help me)...

Hello...I just watched the following youtube video...

7 Mystery Riddles...

If you want to test your English listening and comprehension, this might be a good oportunity...

Now, my request...I understood almost everything of the video...but still cannot figure out the "Riddle Number 4" (minute 4:13). I just don't get it...If someone does get it, could you please explain it to me, like if I were a 2 year old (Philadelphia, yes)...

Thanks...and also, if I made any mistakes in this post, please let me know...

Hello partner, I was watching the video and I have to confess that I am not a good detective. But seeing your comment about the Riddle Number 4, I suppose you are asking about how they came to the conclusion and blame the mailman. There were three bottles of milk and two of them were warm and the last one was cold. The two warm bottles were from Wednesday and Thursday (it was summer) and the cold bottle was from Friday. There is no bottle from Tuesday because the old man took it that day. So, the man who delivers milk always came before the mailman (and I suppose the mailman is who brings the Newspaper). Conclusion, that Tuesday the man who delivers milk passed by the house and left one bottle and the house owner took it, and then passed the mailman who left the Newspaper and killed the man. But the killer always returns to the crime scene and he passed on Friday like if it all were normal, but he forgot to leave the newspapers the previous days.
