There is a logical relation between these pictures that gather them all together. Can you sort them and guess what picture can be the next one?

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8

Hope this is an innovative and interesting puzzle.

Spoiler: The next missing person is

Betty Binns Fletcher

  • $\begingroup$ Is it the people or the pictures we need a relationship between? In other words, would different pictures of the same people work just as well? $\endgroup$

1 Answer 1


These are all people who

died in the last 3 years. The proper sort order is the order in which they died.

The names of the people are, starting in the top row working left to right,

Frank Bank, Leon Bramlett, Ray Hatton, Leon Bibb, Valery Belousov, Lionel Pickens (aka Chinx), Dale Armstrong, and George Francis.

Sorting these by the criterion mentioned above yields

1. Frank Bank (April 13, 2013)
2. George Francis (October 22, 2014)
3. Dale Armstrong (November 28, 2014)
4. Ray Hatton (March 4, 2015)
5. Valery Belousov (April 16, 2015)
6. Lionel Pickens (May 17, 2015)
7. Leon Bramlett (October 19, 2015)
8. Leon Bibb (October 23, 2015)

  • $\begingroup$ I modify the title,you need to find some sort of logical relation between these people so you may guess the next one. you are in a right track! $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ So the sorting is not right. rest is correct $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ The sorting could be the count of the days between their last birthday and their death: 1. Frank Bank 1 day, and so on... $\endgroup$
