Why would a university instructor just beginning her career kill herself?What's happened so far…

Investigation Day 1

Yoknapatawpha Emergency Services received a 911 call reporting the discovery of a dead body in an apartment west of the university campus.

The local news reported from the scene that the dead woman, an instructor at Ole Miss, may have committed suicide.

Back at the sheriff's department, Detectives Armstrong and Murphy talked to the dead woman's roommate, Michelle, to learn more about Kristi and the circumstances surrounding the discovery of Kristi's body.

When officers saw a man hanging around outside Kristi's apartment, they brought him in to talk to the detectives.

Afterward, Detectives Armstrong and Murphy reviewed background information on Kristi Waterson and the results of the canvass of her apartment complex.

That evening, the Oxford Weekly Planet published their coverage of the death.

When Detectives Armstrong and Murphy got back from the coroner's office, Kristi's cell phone records had come in.

A little later, they spoke to Kristi's parents by phone.

Then they went over to the university to talk to Kristi's supervisor.

After they finished with him, the detectives examined Kristi's office for potential evidence related to her death.

Later, they talked to students in the business school about their experiences with Kristi as a teacher.

When Detectives Armstrong and Murphy got back to the sheriff's department, they found an inventory of evidence from the crime scene waiting for them.

Later, the deputies who'd spoken to people at an apartment complex near Kristi's provided a summary of what the residents said.

Other officers who spoke to businesses in the area also provided information on what they found out, while investigators mapped out locations that have come up in the investigation.
