Could any of the residents have seen something out their windows? A few would be able to see the dumpster area. I also notice from the map that no one can get out to the dumpster from the inside without passing through the dining roo and the kitchen. Was there anyone in the kitchen or dining room during this time?

I was wondering about the large contusion Jerry had on his right forehead and, if he and his killer had a face to face encounter wouldn't the killer have to left-handed.? Or he was standing at an angle, or he saw he was going to be struck and tried to avoid the hit.? Just a thought.

Good point and observation I think he got drugged or jumped maybe it was a suicide

I would think this is a drug deal gone bad so its probably someone that lives in the area of this nursing home. Has met this person before at this area? First hit was from behind then he turned to face this person and was struck again hum the coffee was it a little liquid on the ground or a lot that would say how long he was out there

I wonder where you are getting drugs from? In his biography is it written that he spent at least thousands on gambling, that would be more believable than drugs.

I had the same theory with a bad drug deal. A nurse gets paid decent wages, but not an orderly. He could have been supplementing income with the fun drugs they give to the elderly. If that was the case, then this was his first dealing with the person he was selling too most likely, because nobody would want to cut off their supply over an argument about price. It, however, could be that he was dealing directly with a drug addict instead of a dealer, in which case it was not necessarily a first meeting. An addict will do anything to get their fix, and maybe they had no money to give him. One flaw here is, he has no Facebook account. There is a Jerry Shaw age 27 in the same State, but it's not him. If he were supplementing his income, I would think he might have a computer and affording Internet.

My other theory so far is, he slipped on the food on the ground and banged his head against the dumpster. The previous poster said he may have been hit from behind first, but both injuries took place in the front. The main problem with this theory is that he is laying on his back. Had he slipped, he would have been found face down.

The drug theory is pulled from thin air from what I can see. Jerry was a known gambler, he spent thousands on gambling, ranging from his parents inheritance to "most of his measly salary" so I don't see how he would be able to afford drugs. If it was a bad drug deal then instead of contusions he would have lacerations on the skin caused by blunt force trauma (example: If he was hit with a bat, a plank of wood, golf club ect.) there would be clear lacerations, I don't think drug suppliers would use their fists to deal with this especially only 2 hits. Drug deal gone wrong? Highly unlikely.

The tripped and fell theory is more coherent than the drug theory. For instance; a "substance" was found on Jerry's shoe that was linked to "discarded food" on the floor near the bins, he could have been walking out there for a break slipped on the old food (probably rotten and more squishy than usual since the food smudged into his shoe) hit the right side of his forehead on the bin and fell. There were also contusions on the nape of his neck, since he was found between the curb and the bin (on his back) it is plausible that he could've fell once he hit his forehead and then hit the back of his neck on the curb.

for me there is two things standing out in this incident report...

1.) his hand that is slighty under the dumpster indicating his close proximity to it in his final moments (was he meeting somebody there where no one can see them and then the meeting went wrong, was he simply throwing garbage or taking a cigarette break when someone come on to him, or was dumpster being pulled onto him to cover his body but killer did not manage to finish this task)

2.) his tattos depiciting satanism and weapons, indicative of company and belief he held, which is not all good

The hand being under the dumpster is an odd theory but I haven't researched that far into it yet so maybe its plausible.

The hand being under the dumpster is an odd theory but I haven't researched that far into it yet so maybe its plausible.
However.. The "where no one can see them" theory isn't very plausible. They were in the rubbish area where if you look at the building layout, MANY rooms have a view of the garbage area, so it's not a very concealed place, plus from interview #1 it is said that many people go out there for cigarette breaks / breaks in general.

The tattoo statement is just circumstantial, there are many people who have tattoo's like that, ever seen a person with a gun tattoo? because I have seen plenty and they are all kind people, the satanism thing is a shot in the dark, he is a recluse who gambles his paycheque away and works as an orderly, I hardly think that he is holding rituals and reading the book of the dead and the satanic scriptures.

Oh and the fact that you stated they tried to move the bin, In Lynettes interview it is stated by her that the bins are in the usual places that they are left.

my theory so far is that jerry and somebody quarreled about something, jerry got hit in the forehead, lost his balance, slipped and hit his neck on the dumpster.... latter one being the fatal injury...

I'm thinking this is probably the primary crime scene since it stated residue on the sole of the left shoe visually consistent with what appeared to be discarded food immediately southeast of the left foot..
And it appears the body hasn't been moved significantly since blanching livor mortis was observable on the posterior of the body. . Otherwise I imagine his blood would have pooled somewhere other than his posterior of his body.

and partially underneath the wheeled dumpster in the gap between the bottom of the container and the asphalt. definitely sounds like someone else was present at time of death or shortly after. Cos I doubt he could fall & end up with his arm under the dumpster like that. Someone moved the dumpster or him slightly.

In Lynettes interview it is stated that the garbage bins were not moved from their usual space so nobody had moved them
