  • I'd check the gun to see if it was fired. The damaged bullet could also be a clue. Same with the knife. Was he stabbed or shot?

  • Was the chefs knife with the stains on it part of the victims knife block? or did the killer bring it to the scene?

    Was the gun fired, and if so by who? Who is the gun registered to?

    What does the letters in his breifcase say? and the reciept for the jewelers, he doesnt seem the type to by himself jewelery!!

    Credit card bill might also be interesting.

  • I agree with the previous comments. The evidence that stands out the most are the gun, bullets, stained chef's knife, Hotel receipt, & jeweler's receipt. The gun & knife could of course be the murder weapons. The hotel receipt is strange, which part is missing? Is it the signature? His son is a student at Ole Miss University, so it could be connected to him. Same with the jeweler's receipt; as someone else said, I don't see him buying jewelry for himself. It could have been for his wife, or maybe a mistress. I have a feeling those receipts are a link to some form of motive. Perhaps they point to infidelity, either him with another woman; or( what I think may be the case) the son and his stepmother. And of course you'd want to check the cellphone for calls etc. & the letter from the attorney, maybe he was shop talking divorce.

  • Have the keys been identified as too who they belong too?

  • The jewelers receipt stands out in questioning of Raquel Santos questioning of where she may have gotten the necklace.It could be a possibility that Phillip Fontaine was having an affair with his maid and the wife was aware of this.As stated she has a way to get what she wants.

  • Have the keys been identified as too who they belong to that were found,There were five keys on the key ring.

  • WHY DO PEOPLE ASK QUESTIONS IN THE COMMENTS, THESE ARE REALLY GOOD QUESTIONS BUT WONT BE ANSWERED HERE, YEAH OKAY I HAVE DONE IT TOO, FYI.. HAHA
