  • So there's a bloody fingerprint on the dumpster's east side that seems to have been cleaned with bleach. Makes foul play more likely than an accident. And was Shaw drinking on the job?

  • We know that Joseph Wilson is the head cook at the home, so his prints on the trash container could be from throwing the trash in it. There's still a chance that he could've murdered Jerry. We can point out a couple that seem to be the most obvious, but sometimes it doesn't work out that way. ;)

  • About your comment Scarlett:- We can point out a couple that seem to be the most obvious, but sometimes it doesn't work out that way.
    How very true those words are.??
    How many times have we seen it like that:- that the persons with the biggest motives were not the killer.

  • Was Jerry drinking vodka behind the dumpster, slipped on some food waste and fell and banged his head. Although not sure yet about the neck injury. Any thoughts?
