Well, the real trick would be using hard to trace muscle relaxers to incapacitate the victim. Then, you have that person fire one of the bullets into
something you take with you (this puts the powder in the right places, etc.). You reload the bullet that was fired. Then, using a prop made from dry
ice (it melts to a gas instead of liquid), and a piece of dry ice as a fuse between the hammer, you have a timed gun to shoot the victim.
Eventually the dry ice melts, the hammer falls, and the gun shoots the victim. The dry ice stand (for the gun) melts too, leaving no water.
Eventually, the body is dead, the gun is on the floor (looking like the victim dropped it), and there is no reason not to think it's not a suicide
(as the powder is on the victim's hand, and only the killing bullet is missing) Likewise, the time for the dry ice to melt gives you a pretty solid
shot at having a good alibi...
Then again, I haven't really thought much of it.
If you were really pressed for time, I suppose you could fashion an ice stake and simply stab someone... If you did it right, the melting water could
even offset the time of death for some time (again, good for the old alibi)...not to mention, it will drive the CSI guys nuts trying to identify the
