Too early to make any clear conclusions, but I think the liquid being examined is a good start. The fact that there were two glasses seems to indicate that there were possibly two drinkers, which could mean that the unidentified drinker is a suspect, especially if the drink turns out to be poisoned. Also, there's no sign of where the liquid came from (a bottle, etc.), so someone must have left with that. As for the partially unbuttoned shirt, could there be a sexual aspect to it? Perhaps a woman poisoned him while pretending to try to seduce him? Like I said, too early for any conclusions, but some initial ideas.

I agree with all except one thing.
Shirt was unbuttoned by the EMTs, and after them R/I noticed that was unbuttoned. In report there's no word about returning it back.

You're right. My bad. Forget that thought.

It still does not mean that a woman might not be involved.

In addition, I think the man confessing has nothing to do with the actual killing, and is just mentally disturbed. The main evidence of this is that he's covered in the red substance (which isn't blood), trying to make the investigators think it is. Even if it was real blood, there's no sign of any wounds or anything of that sort that would have caused blood, especially in the amount necessary to cover the man while not getting any on the floor, etc. Finally, it would be awfully difficult for a man of his size to overpower a man of Garrett's size. It would be interesting to know how he learned about the body--that should be followed up on--but it could be as simple as him owning a police radio.

He may be mentally disturbed but when you read his witness statement, he said he knew the man was dead and that a man kept following him. I think he witnessed something. Maybe someone leaving and he went in to see (the door was not locked)what was going on and something made him think the man was dead.

I agree 100% that the suspect has some mental issues, be believe that he knows more than what he stating.

person 3 could be covering for a friend, lover or a family member. as a insurance broker, the suspect could be a client i would investigate both aspects further.

The whole scene was staged. There are two reasons someone would stage a crime. 1) to direct attention away from himself and 2) to protect the victim or the victim's family. This is usually someone who has some kind of association or relationship with the victim. If it is to direct suspicion away from himself, the person will usually be over cooperative or extremely distraught. When it is staged to protect the victim or the victim's family, the staging is usually done by the family member or person that finds the body. This is evident in the way that Grant kept touching and moving things around or putting them back in place. Question: was he trying to divert attention away from himself or did he think Ashley did it and was trying to protect her?

Also, consider the interviews. Who was overly cooperative and who was unusually distraught? Who have associations with the victim close enough that they would stage a crime scene to protect someone?

The staging was a little over the top when you consider that it's supposed to look like a robbery but nothing was taken from the immediate scene, the knife and the gun? No. It was not a robbery gone bad as they say.
