Clever and interesting ways to kill someone?

Clever and interesting ways to kill someone? Topic: How to write a short crime story
July 16, 2019 / By India
Question: I'm writing a short Sherlock Holmes story as part of an English task. I find the writing itself very easy, but at the moment I'm struggling to find a way to kill someone. I need this initially to make the whole thing logical and coherent as I work backwards. If you have any other creative crimes, they are more than welcome. But ideally I would opt for a murder, just because it tends to more interesting. By the way, I'm trying to make it classic style rather than modern, if possible, so i will accept modern ideas, but preferably things viable at the time in which it's set.

Make it a suicide, and Holmes figures out it is a murder. Have it that the man is hanging from the balcony from a rope. His neck broken. It is not the crime that is interesting in Holmes stories, it is how he solves it. Other Holmes stories have rather common murders, gunshot, stab wound, etc. It is how Holmes deduces it.

a guy makes someone swallow a small bomb to blow up their intestines.. the explosion doesnt leave body.. no blood except from mouth.. looks as if they were stabbed from the inside out
