Rivers watches as the car turns out of the driveway and away from the crime scene. He shakes his head before turning back to the house. Officers Stuart and Butler are assessing the scene as the forensics team dusts for fingerprints. The coroner waves his assistant over to help him with the body. The assistant pulls up with the gurney and stumbles, hitting the nightstand beside the bed.
“Are you okay?” the coroner asks.
“Yes. I stood up too fast.” He looks around to make sure none of the officers saw him stumble. He glances down at the nightstand, making sure he did not disturb anything. Officer Butler looks over the contents on the dresser. Officer Stuart makes his way over to see if the coroner has everything he needs.
At that moment, Rivers walks into the bedroom, scanning the room as the zipper closes the black body bag. He tells the coroner he will be by first thing in the morning for results. Rivers turns, telling Stuart to take the forensics team to dust the bottom of the staircase.
“And before you go, what is that on the door?” he asks, pointing above the door handle. “It could be a fingerprint. Get it anyway, just in case.”
“Gotcha.” One of the forensics team members comes over, opening her case.
Rivers and Butler stand at the end of the bed. “What do you think happened here?”
Looking at the door and then back at the bed, Rivers begins. “I’m not sure what happened, but it looks like it all took place in here. Maybe he brought her to the room or maybe she was getting up. We won’t know all the facts until the coroner’s report is in.” He walks over to the door.
“This scene suggests you’re correct.” Butler stands in the doorway.
“Yeah, it does. It feels like déjà vu. It’s like I’ve seen this before.” He rubs his chin.
“Does it remind you of another case we’ve worked?”
“No. A case I worked in Chicago. I never solved it, and it drove me crazy. Hence the move here.”
Butler pats him on the back. “Hopefully, we’ll solve this one.”
Rivers smiles. “You young bucks are so positive. I just hope you are not disappointed with how a case like this goes. Let’s go speak to some of the neighbors. They may have seen something.” He points to the left for the officers and goes to the right.
