Real Estate Rancor

On Sunday afternoon, Detectives Murphy and Parker were called to the scene of an apparent homicide at a local real estate office. The co-worker who found the body identified the victim as realtor Annette Wyatt.
Investigation Day 2
While the Oxford Weekly Planet published their coverage of the death, the detectives and other investigators spent the rest of Sunday and Monday morning canvassing for witnesses.
They spoke to business owners and employees in the vicinity of the Harte Agency to find out if anyone saw or heard anything unusual over the weekend.
While they were there, they also spoke to Annette's neighbors to find out more about her.
Investigation Day 3
The next morning, the sheriff's department's spokeswoman met with the media and provided additional information about the investigation.
Investigation Day 4
Then they talked to the newest agent at Pearce Brokers to find out what she knew about Annette followed by the company's veteran agent who should have more information since he's been in the industry longer.
Investigation Day 5
After those interviews were completed, the detectives reviewed the vehicles registered to persons of interest, and then set out to see how those people's alibis held up to scrutiny, starting with Annette's boss.
Investigation Day 6
The following morning, Detectives Murphy and Parker turned their attention to the alibis of the people closest to Annette—Naomi and Darren—and those who might've felt they had reason to want her dead—Elena and Chris.
Then the detectives went back to Sofia to find out if she'd remembered anything more about the day she found Annette's body.
Later, they spoke to a couple who'd worked with both the Harte Agency and Pearce Brokers before buying their home.
Investigation Day 7
Then Detectives Murphy and Parker had another talk with Jeff about anything he failed to mention during their previous conversation.
When they finished with him, the detectives found the Coroner's Office had sent over a preliminary report on the autopsy.
Late that afternoon, they asked Elliott why he hadn't told them everything before, and he responded with a surprising claim.
Investigation Day 8
First thing in the morning, Detectives Murphy and Parker had Jeff come in again to get his reaction to Elliott's allegation.
The detectives also talked to Elena about her and Jeff's reactions to Elliott's allegations.
Then they caught up with Joanna to get her take on the situation.
Investigation Day 9
The following morning, Detectives Murphy and Parker focused their questions on the people at Pearce Brokers, beginning with owner Rita.
Later, they spoke with a bartender from The Roadhouse, where Annette had gone several times the week before she died.
