Un assassinat expliqué par un détective (A Murder Explained by a Detective) is a French Sherlock Holmes pastiche written by Gustave Téry published in 2 parts in Le Matin (No. 8875 & 8876) on 15 & 16 june 1908.

Based on real facts, Sherlock Holmes explains the Vaugirard tragedy : in 1908, Marguerite Steinheil was found tied up at her home in Paris (Impasse Ronsin). Her mother and her husband found dead. Marguerite Steinheil was promptly suspected of this double murder because of the variation of her explanations. She was trialed and finally acquitted in november 1909 after virulent debates in the press.
