Ellery Queen: The Adventure of the Judas Tree

Industrialist and war profiteer George Sherman is stabbed to death with a ceremonial Chinese dagger then dragged out of his house and hung from a tree with a crown of thorns on his head. What makes things even more mysterious is when it's discovered that Sherman was dying of a blood disease and had only six months at the most remaining.
