Spectral Whodunit

Submitted by Cosmologicon 9 years, 2 months ago

It was a dark and stormy night. Senator Red, Doctor White, Colonel Orange, Minister Black, Professor Brown, and Inspector Blue were all gathered together at the home of the Widow Hue.

"I know who killed my husband," she revealed dramatically. "In fact... he's in this very room!!"

Why did everyone immediately realize she was accusing the butler?

Notes: It's not because it's always the butler. They also didn't know anything about the butler that gave them extra clues. All eight of them were in the same room.
