Martin Vargas is covered in his blood, but all he did was help pull the wall off him? Ervin Cyr has blood because he was doing cpr, but the other people who helped have minimum human blood on them. weeeeeiiirrrrdddd. i might be reading too deep...

It does seen like the blood evidence points to Martin Vargas. He also had opportunity. I'm just not sure about the motive...

If the Wood baseball bat with spikes was the murder weapon, there would be a lot of blood...

One thing that also...

One thing that also draws my attention is the London Fog raincoat that also has blood on it. Who's raincoat was this? Was it worn by the murderer to cover his/her clothes from getting blood on it together with the yellow gloves? With this question in mind, if Martin Vargas was involved, was there possibly two people involved in this murder? One smart one and another careless one?

Another possibility is that Martin was in the wrong place at the wrong time and somehow threatened to keep quiet?

We need more information on Martin Vargas and a second interview with him explaining why all this evidence was found on his clothes, that is for sure.

The other crucial part of information we need is the autopsy report on the victim.
