Ok, so this is what we know. Wife suspected him of affairs, and so did his son. We have spoken with at least one person who is suspected of being an affair, though she was not the one seen with that day, his wife had the vehicle that had her prints in it. His son was at the place where the body was found, around the time he should have been murdered, we do not know for sure where his wife was around that time. The hairs and fibers for the most part are accounted for, from his office, and the cabin that was Sooo very poorly cleaned after the poker game, His brother was in town to see him the very day he was murdered, but I am not sure what he would have gained from killing him. The one who seems the most likely to have wanted him dead, and the one who acts most guilty also seems to have the tightest alibi, so where are the wholes, what's missing. The only hair missing is his son's, Roy's, Ross', Louis has non, Where is the pink thread and the red thread from? Who do these other hairs belong to,

Virginia Brooks hair is auburn, not brown, Jill's hair is brown. Or is that just a typo?
