Just when it seemed like the case would never be solved, a clue emerged. A neighbour reported seeing a strange car parked near Sarah’s house the night of the murder. The police were able to track down the owner of the car, who turned out to be an ex-boyfriend that Sarah had recently broken up with.
Upon questioning, the ex-boyfriend admitted to the murder, claiming that he couldn’t handle the rejection. He had gone to Sarah’s house that night, hoping to reconcile, but when she refused, he flew into a rage and killed her.

Detective James was called to investigate a strange case at the old, abandoned mansion on the outskirts of town. The mansion had been vacant for years, but recently, a group of teenagers had reported strange noises coming from inside.
Upon arriving at the mansion, James found the front door ajar and a musty smell in the air. As he made his way through the dusty rooms, he found nothing out of the ordinary, until he reached the basement. There, he discovered a hidden room with a locked door.
James immediately called for backup and together, they were able to break down the door. Inside, they found a gruesome scene. A man, who had been missing for years, was tied to a chair, dead.
As James and his team began to investigate the murder, they quickly realized that this case was not as straightforward as it seemed. The man had no identification on him, and no one in the town recognized him.

James and his team worked tirelessly to piece together the clues and finally were able to identify the killer as the long-lost heir of the mansion who had come to claim his inheritance and get rid of the caretaker.
