Only Murders in the Building Season 1 Ep9 | Sting is the Killer

Sting is the killer of Tim Kono, because he’s the only one with motive to commit this crime of passion. Plus, no one else is more interesting or less unlikely. Only Murders in the Building takes true crime to the extreme. My episode 9 reaction and more.


Ignore the obvious red herring of Jan, because the most interesting and least obvious answer is none other than Sting! He is the killer of Only Murders in the Building season 1, enacting a crime of passion upon Tim Kono. Losing Sting millions was the final straw, after being kept up at night by the loud sex between Tim and Jan. Sting had his house keeper poison Tim, but when that didn’t work right away he stormed in and pulled the trigger!

Sure, Oliver or Mabel could have killed Tim. But Only Murders in the Building is wild and funny, a delicious true crime mystery that remains unpredictable. The simplest solution is that our sleuths were right to begin with, even if they didn’t know it or believe it. Sting is the killer.

Do we truly know who killed Tim Kono? Sort of. Why are our three “friends” still keeping so many damn secrets from one another? Can their true crime podcast become an actual success? Unlikely, but we know they solve the murder. Someone else is getting killed as well, so let us know your thoughts on the murders to come. This true crime is too real, but perhaps not real enough.
