A man lies dead in a field with nothing around him, save for the clothes on his back and a rock. There are no traumatic wounds on his body.
Who is he,how and why did he die?

I'll answer ONLY yes or no questions for you to figure it out.

The man was my ex-husband. I effed him to death, put him in an open field and used a rock as his headstone. Case closed.

are his clothes weird, as in. Would an accountant wear his clothes to work or not?

A heart attack seems perfectly feasible. Fields do contain rocks.

no, an accountant would not wear his clothes to work and i dont think many others.
no, a heart attack is not what happened he was in perfect health before he died.
and yes, there is a rock near him.

The man is dead and the rock is a headstone covers all the conditions of the puzzle. I like that answer.

I'm not sure it does. "Nothing around him" is a bit vague, but seems to rule out things like a casket.

Did the man die of natural causes?

no natural causes did not result in his death, if you mean things like stroke, heart attacks and the ilk.

Did the man cause his own death?

Did someone kill him?

It may be in bad taste, but that's how GRANNY killed Pappy.

Does the rock have anything to do with this puzzle?

Dear god, my PTSD is coming back.

Did he die due to disease?

Is his/her identity important?

Is the rock important?

There's a hint in Bob's profile.

I've seen this one before, so I won't give the answer.
