What's happened so far…

Investigation Day 1

The Sheriff's Department was called to a warehouse in eastern Yoknapatawpha County where a 911 call reported that a man had been found dead after a dress rehearsal of an immersive theater show.

After examining the scene, Detectives Beckwith and Magee returned to the station to talk to the witnesses, starting with a medical doctor who tried to help the injured man.

Then the detectives talked to the assistant stage manager, who first found Scott backstage after the rehearsal.

Then they spoke to the theater board member who called 911.

Next, they talked to the show's director and lead actress to get her perspective on what happened during the rehearsal.

After hearing from her, Detectives Beckwith and Magee spoke with the man who wrote the script about where he was during the rehearsal.

Then the detectives asked the newest board member about her experience at the rehearsal.

When they tried to talk to the youngest board member, Detectives Beckwith and Magee had trouble getting any sense out of him, so they turned to the lead actor, who told them what he saw.

The detectives wrapped up with the supporting actress who other witnesses claimed had been involved in the incident with Heath.

After finishing the interviews with the main participants in the show, Detectives Beckwith and Magee reviewed what other investigators had learned from the supporting cast and crew.

Investigation Day 2

The Oxford Weekly Planet broke the news of the death the following morning.

Meanwhile, the detectives worked to find out more about the dead man and visited his residence to see what they could learn.

Then Detectives Beckwith and Magee talked to Scott's family and his friends and neighbors to get more information about him.

They also reviewed the report and the interview with Scott following the incident with his girlfriend.

Late that afternoon, the CSU provided a preliminary inventory of evidence collected at the scene along with early findings on which items had human blood on them.

Investigation Day 3

After the Crime Lab found an unusual stain pattern on a piece of evidence, investigators went back to the cast and crew to try to find out how the stain got there. Detectives Beckwith and Magee started with the assistant stage manager.

Then the detectives talked to Denis again to learn more about the script and the rehearsal, and they asked Erv about the board's operations.

After Erv's comments, Detectives Beckwith and Magee wanted to hear from the troupe's producer, and later they spoke with Anna again to get her perspective on it.

Next, they sat down with Heath again to try to get some sense out of him, and then they followed up with Janet to see what she had to say about it.

Detectives Beckwith and Magee then asked board members Cherie and Neal to come in again to provide more information about the interactions between the cast and crew and the board.

When Anna arrived, the detectives asked her to tell them more about Scott's interactions with Martin.

Later, they questioned Erv about his relationship with Cherie in light of her comments about him.

After lunch, Detectives Beckwith and Magee visited a local restaurant where they spoke with employees to follow up on a lead.

In light of what those witnesses said, the detectives went to Cherie's residence to ask her some more questions.

Then they examined the report on fingerprints found on evidence collected at the scene and came up with a plan to get some answers.
