Murder Mystery: Who Killed Old Man John?

Wear your detective hats and find the killer in the riddle.

An old man John lived alone in his flat. Because of his age, he was not able to move out much and hence would spend most of his time home.

On Friday, while delivering the mail, the postman sensed something suspicious in the flat and tried to look inside through the key hole. He saw the dead body of John.

Sherlock steps into the crime scene. Outside of the flat, he found two bottles of warm milk, Tuesday’s newspaper, unopened mail and some gifts.

Sherlock knew exactly who murdered John.

Who was the murderer?
