The contents of John Does pockets are a little suspect, most people carry either a phone, wallet, cash around with them. But to have a pocketknife, key and mini flashlight only seems strange, could this be a murder for hire gone wrong?

The contents of John Doe pockets are not the average day contents, a pocketknife and a flashlights, was he looking for a building to brake into? Was the key for the victims house?

Theres definately a third person involved, that would both account for the missing 38 and the black hair found on both victims, the red hair on victim 2 could of already been his clothing, I think the black hair needs to be cross referenced if possible to see if they are from the same person?

Yes, Leanne1410, the black hairs are on both of them. 1 inch is very short, a crew cut? a Labrador retriever? I am especially interested in the fingerprints on the gun and bullets in the gun. Do we know if it's Pruitt's gun yet? And I agree with...
