The Mystery: Will Harry Potter die at the end of the series?
The Sleuths: Harrypotter.wizards.pro, the-leaky-cauldron.com and most media outlets.
The Facts: J.K. Rowling let slip that two characters would die at the end of the final book. Daniel Radcliffe speculated as far back as 2004 that his character would end up dying in the end.
The Theories: Vegas oddsmakers and fan polls said the smart money was on both Harry and Voldemort. But others speculated that the tragic Professor Snape could bite the dust.
Chance of Being Solved: Already solved. But we'd never dream of spoiling the fun.
