I wonder if she was meeting someone on the skywalk. The coat that was draped over the railing must have been Andrea's and since her handbag was on the concrete floor with the body, I believe she was pushed. If she intended to commit suicide, why would she take the handbag with her?

How do they not know the date of crime or time they should be able to look at the time of the call.

Hi Isaac,
I love your comment about the handbag! I never thought of that. Now I can't wait to see if they find something there.
I believe they can't give us the time of death because Andrea Stover could've been killed anytime before the body...

Hi Isaac,

I believe they can't give us the time of death because Andrea Stover could've been killed anytime before the body was found. Maybe she was murdered at midnight or anytime after that. We will probably all that when the coroner's report is published.

The fingernails may show evidence. Which hand or both may show where attacker was or direction coming from. Purse was probably on arm. Any other marks on body seems like she put up a fight.

All the above well done.

This is my first time doing this, but here is what I think:
. Seeing as how Andrea died by blunt force trauma to the head, a logical explanation would be that she died by falling off the sky walk.
. She couldn't have committed suicide as many factors suggest this isn't the case
. The broken fingernails would suggest that she attempted to fight back the attacker, although no traces of blood were found under her fingernails, unless the forensics report would say so, and also considering the possibility that the attacker was only there to steal from her, seeing as how she had her bag with her when she died (Does the bag have anything valuable inside?) and the timing for it would have been perfect (Detectives said she died around 8 to 12 hours ago), so no witnesses could have seen she was robbed and subsequently killed.
. Coming back from working from months would very "flash able", in other words, a lot of people would have known she was coming back.
. There is also the possibility that this was planned, seeing as how no evidence could have been left behind by pushing someone off and it was pitch black.

Forgive me by my English, It's a bit off.

Coming from my perspective, this could be an accident?
There was no blood or skin beneath her fingernails (that were left), giving us a chance to look at the possibility of her slipping from the top of one of the buildings, but catching the side....

Coming from my perspective, this could be an accident?
There was no blood or skin beneath her fingernails (that were left), giving us a chance to look at the possibility of her slipping from the top of one of the buildings, but catching the side. The force from gravity pushing her down and her nails clawing at the roof in an attempt to climb back up could be the reason why her nails had torn off, along with any other abrasions. Her nails coming off could have also led to her fall, since that is commonly painful. The blunt force was her head hitting the ground, finally causing her death.

Just a hunch.
