Rachel's case notes

Rachel has been using her time away to review the evidence and figure out where the investigation stands

Since I've been stuck in Jackson helping Mom, I've been going over the clues to try and put everything in perspective.

I made a list of all the people and evidence we've come across, and then listed what we know and what we don't know about these things.

Hopefully, it will help us know what questions we need to ask.

— Rachel
