Hints

  • Click to reveal Hint #1

    The fact that 12 tributes have died is interesting for two different reasons.

  • Click to reveal Hint #2

    As you're undoubtedly aware, Pangram tributes are very appropriately named. Additionally, the fact that this puzzle is projected up towards the sky is also a clue as to how to solve it.

  • Click to reveal Hint #3

    Each body position is a zodiac constellation and each cause of death refers to a different zodiac constellation. What's the difference, you may ask? Also, constellations are often depicted in multiple different ways, so make sure to use your star chart.

  • Click to reveal Hint #4

    Order the tributes by district, according to their thematic names (e.g. TUNNEL = mining). Then index into the name by how far apart the two pertinent zodiac signs are.
