Anna was going on her normal daily morning jog. Her neighbor, Doug Greene was out in his garden watering his plants. Anna passed by her neighbor and greeted him like she always does and proceeded going home. Anna started feeling very lightheaded and decided to sit down on her stool. She reached over to get her pain medication because she started experiencing pain in her lower abdomen. Just as she reached over, her light-headedness turned into dizziness and eventually her death, causing her to fall off her stool, and hitting her head on the kitchen counter on her way down. Anna’s lifeless body lay there until someone came to her aid.
Doug Greene heard Anna’s dog barking hysterically. Doug had noticed earlier that Anna was acting a bit odd. Doug immediately called the 911 operator and explained to them what he had seen and the address of her house. The EMT arrived moments later at Anna’s house, taking her to the hospital to determine her cause of death. At the crime scene, DNA such as hair and blood was found and sent to the forensic DNA analyst to determine who the DNA belonged to. Pictures of blood splatter caused from her head injury were sent to a blood splatter analyst to determine how far up and where the blood had fallen from.
