    explain this suicide scene
    a man has hung himself in a room with nothing in it except for a piece of rope (used to hang himself) a high window (near the ceiling) and a waterfaucet

    let me rephrase this so it makes more sense...
    a detective is dropped into a room from window
    there is NOTHING in the room except for a dead man, suspended from a rafter on a ceiling that is 30 ft (somewhere in the neighborhood of a 9-10 mceiling) by a rope around his neck which is only 6 ft (2m) long
    there is a regular garden faucet in the corner.
    how did the dead man do it?

    He floated himself to the top, then used a string to turn off the faucet. The water ran out leaving him hanging.

    Why is there a garden tap indoors?

    More importantly, how did the dead man drain the place after he died?

    The drainage is very slow. All it takes to counter the drainage is to have the tap on. With the tap off, the water will start to drain away, like in my bathtub which has a partially clogged drain.

    What string? He didn't say the dead man had a string, only a rope, and that only a couple meters long, not long enough to reach the faucet if the room was full of water.
