My initial observation is that the roses scattered on the floor indicates Morris was upset with the flowers. A silver locket on the table added to the flowers suggest they were either a romantic gesture or possibly an apologetic one. Question 1)...

My initial observation is that the roses scattered on the floor indicates Morris was upset with the flowers. A silver locket on the table added to the flowers suggest they were either a romantic gesture or possibly an apologetic one. Question 1) Who delivered them? The baby clothes tells me she was either pregnant at the time of her death or she may have possibly given one up. Autopsy will answer that. The card that came with the flowers could be sympathy for a tough decision like giving up a baby, or it is a reminder of a threat that forced her to make a choice. Question 2)Are the contusions on her forehead and around the eye fresh or have they been there for a day or two?

she WAS pregnant. her Best friend confirmed it. And i personally think the flower and locket are from her lover and she was possibly leaving one for the other. I think it MUST be one of her lover. So far didnt find any reason otherwise

The locket looks like the kind that would be purchased in a department store. I don't expect it was engraved at the place it was purchased. It would be hard to find a jewelers or engravers open on a Sunday. Expect the locket took a day or two to...

My guess about the locket is the person who bought it also enscribed the initials into it. Maybe the flowers and locket was from the same person and the card that came with the flowers with the message on it was maybe from Courtney telling her...

My guess about the locket is the person who bought it also enscribed the initials into it. Maybe the flowers and locket was from the same person and the card that came with the flowers with the message on it was maybe from Courtney telling her lover that she was gonna leave Justin and be with him, maybe her lover found out that she didnt tell him that she was going to be with her lover instead of Justin. Maybe her lover killed her because she wouldnt be honest with Justin and make a decision wether or not she wanted to be with her lover or Justin.

It is also possible that the flowers and the locket were from different people. The "You're Mine" inscription on the locket and the "You made the right choice" on the florist card don't seem to go together with me.

Its possible that together the flower and locket were saying "you made the right choice being mine" . maybe the locket was old and give by Justin in which case its possible your theory is right but if someone else gifted it to her then its a...

The way I see it, the locket and the card aren't from the same person. Maybe. But with the roses scattered on the floor, somebody was definitely upset at finding these.

Yeah either she was devastated and ashamed of herself so killed herself(which is entirely possible yet not given that she was pregnant) or maybe her lover found out about her unfaithfulness and doinked her off.

I think its best to analyze all electronic devices found. If possible try to find where the flowers were bought from any shop cards or something? Also check locket for fingerprints
