Last Wednesday, a German tourist was found dead on the grounds of Rowan Oak, William Faulkner's historic Oxford home. The victim had an obvious penetrating wound on his head and a pickaxe was found nearby.
In this update, we have bios and criminal histories for all the groundskeepers who were working in the area, along with canvasses of Rowan Oak and the Ole Miss Motel where the victim was staying.
In the final update on Thursday, we'll have interviews with and bios of the victim's traveling companions, as well as the preliminary Coroner's Report.
We need you to tell us what happened. Who was the killer? What was the motive? What evidence supports your theory?
