Office is 3rd story, First National Bank Building, total 20 stories
3rd story approachable from street? Q -- What side of the building does window opent towards?
Office located adjacent to Medical Doctor's office
Check with MD personnel; usually their hours are longer than 8am-5pm, check to see if anyone heard or saw anything suspicious
Building cameras did not capture any unusual people leaving first floor of building
Despite this, best to review any person's activity coming onto the 3rd floor after 5pm; did anyone enter or leave the building between 5pm-7am?
The door to Mr. T.'s office was intact, no evidence of forcing or tampering.
Posit: Either perpetrator was known to Mr. T. And came in through the door, or did not use the door at all.
No murder weapon was found; e.g. no knife or other sharp object that could be linked to the scene.
Suggests intent to conceal weapon, leaving no fingerprints, etc.
Overall office is neat and tidy; there is a sofa and fish tank in the office (undamaged), modern art pieces on the walls; light is dim; unblemished photo of the Mr. T.'s wife and child on the desk.
With most of office left intact and neat and tidy, suggest that the perpetrator was focused on something in files or desk; not a safe or wall art. Again, points against motivation of theft.
Floor is carpeted (taupe color), bloodstains noticable; there is only one door leading out into the shared hallway.
Perpetrator would have had to leave the building one of two ways; door or window; camera check will narrow down door.
The file cabinet drawers are open; numerous office papers are strewn all over the floor.
Suggests that it was case information that was the target; Q: are there computer backups of data? Might Assistant recognize case files missing.
Phone cord is cut, phone still intact. The computer is on the floor (CPU, monitor, keyboard, mouse); the clock stopped at 630; ostentibly the cord was pulled when the computer was thrown on the floor.
Suggests cutting cord in the event of potential alarm; or to stop any uploads or downloads of data. Computer thrown on the floor: Q: was hard drive intact or taken? Zip or jump drives? Manual or automatic backup?
The one window in the office suite is open, there is only one window
Suggests entrance or egress from window. Tapes and counts of people before 630pm should verify.
No strange aromas (perfume, coffee, food, etc.) with the exception of the corpse exposed to direct light (from open window) for 12 hours.
Lack of perfume suggest not a woman (on the surface), also suggests that Mr. T. was not intending to stay late (no coffee or food smells apparent).
