Stranger Danger email # 3, Week 2
We're starting to understand more about about the people involved in the double homicide at the Pruitt residence.
Victim #1 was Robert Pruitt, a well-known local defense attorney who had a big trial due to start just after he was killed. He also had a wife, a law partner, a secretary and more than one angry ex-client.
Is all of that just interesting information or is the reason he's dead in there somewhere? Maybe we'll learn more when we talk to Pruitt's ex-wife.
We've only begun to scratch the surface of Victim #2. We've got a name and a background for the stranger but still no explanation for his presence in that basement.
- Did someone want Robert Pruitt out of the picture?
- Can the people in the stranger's life shed light what he was doing there?
- Who had a motive to want one or both of these people dead?
We need your help to unravel this mystery.
