(10 years prior) Jaylin Banks is found dead in the library stairwell
oh no! I didn't actually see where anyone went
The death is ruled a murder
blunt force trauma to the brain was the cause of death
On a 10 year old cold case nobody could seem to crack, detective DD Warren found new intel that could help to prosecute one of his suspects. The case was so hard to crack because previously, to convict a suspect they would need a confession because not enough evidence was available for them to take to trial. the detectives had suspects, not a single suspect and had a hard time trying to narrow down their options.
Jaylins shoes were found in her Boyfriends house
I swear I don't know how these got here and regardless of my history I wouldn't ever hurt her!
can you explain why these are here, sir? this and your history dont have things looking good for you
Jaylin banks was reported missing and was later found dead in the lowest stairwell of the library at her university. There were no signs of assault or defense. there were no witnesses to the death but security guards on duty saw the girl and two men walk into the stairwell. Upon questioning the security guard admitted to not throughly checking his assigned areas and not genuinely knowing where any of the 3 were.
James looks less like a suspect
I don't know why they think I liked her ! I was literally at the hotel with you the whole time in question
At first, the death looked like a suicide. further investigation an autopsy revealed that she died of blunt force drama to the brain. it was also discovered that the white Keds sneakers she had worn every day since her freshman year of high school weren't on her feet.
detectives come close enough to find and charge the real killer
we.ll see what the lawyer has to say. Glad we have this evidence and a confession though.
yes, you got what you wanted. I did it. No I’ll plead guilty if there’s a deal.
After further investigation, James Dunchovy, Jaylins boyfriend from 10 years ago admits to a history of drug abuse and alcoholism as well as many counts of violence towards women. Questioning revealed that him and Jaylin were having a troubling relationship at the time. He swore he would never hurt her, despite many abuse claims she previously made about him. Furthermore, after being questioned about the appearance of her white Keds at his house, he swore he didn't know how they got there .
aren't these her shoes?!
Though James seemed like the perfect suspect to be charged, he had an alibi. He was spending the night at a hotel in New York with his current girlfriend. there was video footage as well as record of every time he checked in and out of his room. Though he himself had an alibi, the question was whether or not he hired someone to be his hitman. other suspects including, an anonymous woman Jaylin was spending a lot of time with, and the campus security guard on duty.
you were with me the whole time and they have record! you don't need to be worried. I know you could never do that to her
The detectives eliminated one person completely from being linked to the murder. They got a confession from two people and the rest of the story fell in place and were consistent with each others. They were able to get enough evidence as well as a confession to take to trial and prosecute the offender.
