You're the Detective!, Riddle lvl Easy. Riddle 6?

A man was found dead in his study. He was slumped over his desk and a gun was in his hand. There was a cassette recorder on his desk. When the police entered the room and pressed the play button on the tape recorder they heard: "I can't go on. I have nothing to live for." Then there was the sound of a gunshot. How did the detective immediately know that the man had been murdered and it wasn't a suicide?

  • Someone had to press a button to make the recorder stop recording after the gunshot. Someone else was in the room. It was probably the butler. Just kidding. Am I right though? I was just guessing.
