no solid proof of Claudius killing King Hamlet. The "mouse trap" reaction could be attributed to his incestuous marriage with the widow of his late brother. He might be the culprit or he might not be. Nowhere in the play did Shakespeare explicitly show that Claudius is the murderer. Some argue that Claudius did confess of his guilt. Well, he did not say it explicitly there too. There also it might be the marriage cause.
