The commotion woke Dylan, who left he's rare to find a frantic victor around the fine and Joseph in the office holding a towel against Robert Chest. Dylan still groggy from the sleeping pill, was confused by the situation before him. Six minutes later and the ambulance arrived rubbish. Pajama top was
flashed in three places underneath worth three stab wounds to his chest. Robert had only been at the address for ninety minutes before he was rushed to hospital. He was pronounced dead shortly after midnight. There had been a recent spate of break ins at homes within that Dupont's Go in some instances, intruders had been brazen enough to enter properties, while the residents were inside the Poles suddenly recently issued a security statement to locals, advising them to keep their door's locked at all times. Joseph Pross failed to heed this warning on organ to when detectives arrived at. He swung straight address that nod.
It was brought to their attention that the patio door was not only left on locked, but was slow Leah Jaw, the patio back down to one alleyway that ran parallel to swans straight northwest bordering the backs of all the row houses this Isn't it a likely scenario? intruder had scaled the patio fence from the alley and gained access to the house the young, the door. This one straight row house was an appealing target for any burglar Worse, the well eyes, a million dollars, the property contained flat screen television centre laptop Computer, It is among other price. The goods up, entering the house through the roof patio door. There was a kitchen cancer to the left sitting. On top of this council was a north block

At some point, they entered the home office, ending counted Robert, Juan, a kitchen not from the north block, was found on a not standing next to the sofa bed, its blade caked in Roberts, blood, chest tears and some fatty tissue. The lack of and fingerprints on the north for anywhere else throughout the property suggested that the intruder had worn gloves. Robots final moments were paste together from evidence at the scene and statements from the other occupants of the house. Robert had prick
head for bad in his usual toddy way. He removed his work, clothes and folded them neatly on a desk with he's out their belongings, after sharing he put on his pyjamas attain shut underwear and Jim shorts. The last thing rub: it did before going to sleep was insert he's Math God, which prevented him from Greece. In his teeth. He was wearing the math pace when first responders arrived rubbish, killer, stabbed him three times in the chest and abdomen. What provoked the attack was uncertain. It didn't seem likely that Robert was targeted, specifically he's colleagues hadn't note.
anything different about him lightly and he's kind. Demeanor men was unlikely. He was the target of a murderous van dead on a case of mistaken identity didn't adopt, they thou there was nothing in Joseph Victor or Dylan's lost lifestyles that indicated any of them could have banned the intended victim. None had a criminal history to all, went well regarded for their career success and philanthropy. The three men smug willingly to police and provided their fingerprints has samples and dna They were open and candid when answering questions and when spoken to separately. The stories aligned.
Yet there was one aspect of the men's lives that investigators honed in on their sexuality and the nature of their relationships with one another. The men openly discussed their roles in each other's lives, which amounted to them being a three way: Polly amorous relationship. It started with the Joseph and Victor registered domestic partners, who had been together for six years. Ellen entered the pitcher as the couples room before engaging in his own intimate relationship with the Joseph. There was a malleable aspect to the groups arrangement, which was developing over time. All three men accepted and consented to their circumstances, describing themselves as a family
Yet their lifestyle was of interest to investigate is who questioned where Robert want fit in unconventional relationship. The police interviews with the Joseph Victor and Dylan Well lighted, criticised by some that being quote homophobic. I'll baiting, without a clear motive or suspect, interviewing offices set out to prove that Robert Juan was gay twist publish some or all of this one stray residence as potential sauce bags, yet oath. men denied having a sexual relationships with Robert, he was by all accounts, exclusively heterosexual and happily married. During Dylan Wards Interview hey was asked Roberts perfectly straight
and he's going to leave his wife for the night and come over to you always House Dylan attempted to defend himself against the inflammatory remark retorting yeah, because but was immediately cut off by the officer who said then he's not perfectly stride. That's not something a strike go. I would dude. In Joseph Process interview. He insisted that Robert was not gay, never had bain or ever thought about it. He described rob. As the most stray day. No nonsense guy, he had ever mad. He didn't take drugs, drink, alcohol to access, others felt, Sloan of inquiry was not bigoted, just aggressive. They believed possible romantic link between Robert and anyone
the others was a reasonable late worth, investigating. After Robert ones, murder this one straight northwest Ro House was left a ravaged of its former glory through their process of collecting forensic evidence. Police said caused thousands of dollars worth of damage to the property Joseph Victor and Dylan no longer wanted to live there, but were forced to stay while repairs were undertaken so that the house could be solved and their worries had only just begun. Barely two more softer Robert was murdered. Joseph Victor and Dylan returned to their homes, find it in disarray, seven
as in dollars worth of autumn, had been stolen, including a flat screen television and other electronics and arrest swiftly, followed to the shock of many one of the two people accused of the burglary was Michael price. Josephs brother Michael, had a substance, abuse problem and had stolen from the three men before this raised. Their question did, Michael Braggin on August two and perhaps not expecting to come across a stranger in the home office kill Robert Juan Michael was a student and had missed his classes on the nod of rabbits murder. He also had a k to his brothers house.
Nothing was uncovered that directly linked to Moscow to Robert, but he would remain a person of interest in the homicide investigation. As for the burglary month, slight the charges against Michael hand. He's cow accused were ultimately dropped during a trial hearing, then came another unexpected turn of events, Joseph Price Vig. Does the bosky and Dylan Ward all hired this the anguish to legal representation and ceased speaking with authorities about the rabbit one case. There was a good reason for their change of hard. The two paramedics who responded to victors aboard: He's not one one call on the nod of rabbits. Murder were very proficient with twenty five years experience between them

What's going on one of the pyramid exhaust in so which you Victor explained that the stabbing victim was on the second floor.
They entered the house carrying a structure and immediately made their way up stairs where they came across Dylan Ward. He too was dressed in a white bathrobe. They asked to deal on the same question. He pointed down the hall without saying a word, then, He silently retreated into his bedroom and closed the door. Dylan's complete lack of emotion, confused the paramedics, they had never seen such cool indifference from someone had an active crime saying come to think of it. The paramedics noticed an uncharacteristic and Erika
Agnes throughout the entire residents that didn't add up to the urgency or brutality of what had happened to that inside the home office was Joseph Pross sitting on the followed out so far with these back to the door and with one leg talked leave him. He was naked aside from a pair of underwear. He wasn't touching Robert one. Or making any effort to render aid or assistance. When asked why was going on Joseph simply, replied, I heard a scream, then he stood and moved out of the paramedics way. The laid medic rushed to Robert while the other edged around the so far to go a better look at Joseph he's ill. Fitting behaviour made them uneasy and they wanted Keep him in their line of sight. They even
His hands in case he was carrying a weapon. While the residents version of events as detailed at the beginning of this episode indicated, the attack happened quickly and recently rob it appeared to have been deceased for some time. He was unresponsive, pile had no pulse and was called to the touch. His eyes were fixed and dilated. There. No blood saving from the three wounds in his chest, even though they were big enough to quote fit your finger into according to Joseph when he lifted Robert, should upon finding the man unconscious. He saw blood everywhere. He claimed to have attempted to staunch the bleeding using a tale explained,
that there was a lot of blood on the bed. The knife had pierced robots, hard chest wall right long, small in test on and pancreas The resulting injuries should have caused a catastrophic amount of bleeding as Joseph had described. However, there were no copious bloodstained source, data on or around Robert aside from unusually small spots on the shape beneath him. It was believed days were cold when the paramedics road he's body onto the stretcher aid, the way the amount The blood in the room was entirely inconsistent with a violent stabbing having taken place there, Roberts Blue
it was also discovered in minimal amounts on a black hand or the kitchen nor found on the night stand and a large what cotton town on the floor, while they tell hinted at on one endeavouring to staunch Roberts. Bleeding paramedics noticed something that suggested a completely different act had taken place. A lot film across Roberts torso feature at the top of markings would be visible if someone had attempted to clean the area with a tale not stabilize it. As for the bloody trail on the floor, Staining, was more consistent with someone having used it to walk the shop, age of a knife claim more than ten white fathers consistent with the two how were found in the blood on the north, but there were no fibres from all consistent with Roberts torn shirt,
The noise was absent of blood along that cutting edge, bought Blood ran the entire length of its blade, which measured five and a half inches rob its wounds were only four to five inches deep while the north contained no foreign dna or fingerprints, Joseph Price informed police that he's might be found. He explained that when he first across Robert. The north was lying on his stomach, so he moved it aside to render first aid, when speaking about the incident to a friend to Joseph would say that he had physically pulled the weapon out of rabbits chest before placing it on the not stand Joseph volunteered that the police might not find the real killers dna on the north because they might have Bain quote.
Wearing a glove. Yet it was determined that the north that their crimes, and was highly unlikely to have produced the wounds, the size and shape of Roberts. As for the guests, met self. There was no sign of a struggle having taken place there, while this implied Robert was attacked amid slave. such a scenario didn't correlate with the condition of the sofa bed. Roberts head rested on a fluffed clean pill, with only one indentation, meaning his head moved at all since falling asleep he's wounds were uniform in shape and size, which is on usually stabbing cases as victims tends to thrash around creating varying injuries, the fatal weren't effectively shot down Roberts HOT
but none of his wounds would have killed or rendered him unconscious immediately. He would have been alive for between sixty seconds to ten minutes before succumbing to the top of injuries he had enjoyed. It was odd, He's body had remained in one position that entire time he hadn't tried to defend himself or reacted in any other way. He just lay there on moving. Even when someone was thrusting a knife into his chest,. A medical examiner noted the Moons and internal bleeding would have produced such extreme pain that it would have been virtually impossible Both MR wants to have refrained from moving he's body while in the bed or attempting to get out of the bed to seek help. The lack of any movement from Robert was even more suspicious, considering that
they see area was experiencing. I hate wave according to Cathy, Juan Robert was particularly self conscious about sweating in his slave. He would toss in turn and kick blankets away for relief, but the sofa didn't appear to have been slept in at all the top shades and covered his wooden neatly folded down to forty five degree angle on the robots body, which was how he's hosts had described, preparing decipher for him Robert wasn't nine too slight this way, even if he did the bedding shared the same level of preservation as the pillow, as if a robot did move in the slightest at all. After settling onto the bed. There when no defensive wines whatsoever on Roberts body are met,
Cal examiner, concluded Robert would have reacted instinctively to protect himself and door physically fend off his attack on unless he was quote otherwise incapacitated. While there were no markings to suggest that Robert had been manually strangled hammered in his left eye meant some type of asphyxiation had occurred. It was theorized that Robert had been smothered unconscious with a pillow prior to bang stuff yet small NATO punctures were visible on the left side of Robert Snack. There were three more on his chest to on he's right foot and one on the back of his left hand.
There was no record of paramedics all hospital staff injecting Robert with anything. This meant that the puncture wings were made before Robert was traded. While he was still alive Tests for various alcohols, amphetamines, opiates, Bob Beetroots Benzodiazepines drugs, including commonly known date, rape, drugs came back and negative. Remnants of ecstasy and cannabis were found in the row house, but did not show up in Roberts. Blood screen. By the time police arrived at this one straight address Robert was being stretch it into the Whiting ambulance offices. Then the house and immediately encountered all three mile residents victor into Dillon, still in there. What robes and Joseph was
When he's underwear Joseph did all the talking. He said that they had been burglarized and pointed towards the patio door at the rear of the kitchen remarking see the door is still open officer. Diane Durham went to him, That's the guy. She noted that the door was all but a quarter of an inch closed. That was just touching the frame According to Officer Durham Joseph heard somebody screen and ran down to the ground floor, in contrast to the story of, I'll bet being discovered injured in bed. In this instance, Joseph Clay.
And that Robert was actually outside the patio door relating the others. Let him in and took him upstairs to lie on the sofa bed officer, Durham, advised to Joseph to dress himself, as other units would becoming to investigate Joseph then covered himself with a white robe. As more police arrived, the three residents were Ass to remain in the living room where they were observed, whispering among themselves. It was noted that they all appeared to have showered. Recently, when asked again what had happened, Dylan Ward began to spake Joseph immediately shot him a full bidding stare, causing Dylan to fall silent, Joseph once again rehash the events
The nine hey reiterated that day had been woken by the door. John Joseph theory, Tibet. An unknown intruder had scaled. The patio fence then entered and exit at their house via the door. He had accidentally left on locked. Curiously, the residents had only heard the charm once suggests some one entered but didn't leave. Furthermore, the tenant who lived separately in the row. Houses basement had spoken to Joseph that night she was going to spend the night at a friends house. Shortly before she laughed at six p m. She called Joseph and told him that she had said this
security alarm, one that would have made a loud commotion if someone broke into the house. This meant it had been deactivated during the night in their statements the police. In the immediate aftermath of the murder, the road as its occupants would state that the security alarm was not engaged. That gnawed Joseph then led the police on a tour of his home. Has offices ascended the stairs to the second and third floors. They noticed how loud their steps were on the wooden floorboards. None of their residents recalled hearing the intruders footsteps, not even Dylan, whose bedroom was at the top of the stairs and needed to be passed in order to reach the home office. Joseph TOAD offices that
one might have slipped through the attack because the air conditioner was on and that compressor on the roof above Dylan's bedroom was a very loud. When offices tested this theory, they could barely he they come Press are calling the noise imperceptible spot. The residents claims the situation didn't seem like a burglary gone wrong. The interior of the row house was need an orderly, expensive, electronics, In their usual spots, nothing was missing. Even Roberts wallet watch and blackberry fine was still in the home office on the desk. With these work, clothes Joseph and Victor told police that this one straight residents had never been burglarized before or raven
said by an intruder. They as well as Dylan, ultimately acknowledged that the intruder Theo was implausible and made absolutely no sense that all three steadfastly maintained it their recollections of the not mostly aligned and their statements were also suspiciously specific fur investigators. This indicated day had coach day each other on what to say beforehand. Curiously, they glossed over some key data rules such as their friendship with Robert, they minimize the to the point where it seemed like they were distant friends at most and old acquaintances, at least.
This did in line with the fact that the trio had hosted Roberts thirtieth birthday party used earlier Joseph and a victor had attended his wedding and Robert would catch up with them periodically sometimes multiple times a year despite their inability to remember something as significant as their long term. Friendship with Robert the trail, recalled unremarkable details with a suspicious a man of detail such as, how Joseph had gone outside to investigate the spot on the patio line which led to him, leaving the door unlocked once interviewing offices sensed things weren't adding up, they started to record the three. Men at any given time in their recollections there were moments in which one or several of the men were unable to account for the others,
no matter the line of questioning all three you were unwavering in their innocence and staunchly defended one another job. If told offices on Victor in Dylan better than on no, my mom there is, no chance on the face of the earth that anybody did anything to Robert. They couldn't even spanker child. That was being bad. One point during his interview, Judge demanded, I want to say them both referring to Victor and Dillon He seemed most concerned with delight in particular, when told he was free to go Joseph replied. What's the story, Dylan a main I'm going to get his attorney to come down here,
by now police had well formed opinions of the trio they describe to Joseph process. The arrogant, unconcerned, flippin, aggressive and self centered he's partner. The desert Bosky was passive, disinterested and unconcerned about solving the attack as was Dylan Ward, who was calm and distant following Robert wants murder detectives meticulously, canvassed this one straight row house for evidence on one occasion they watch dizzy, cadaver dog trained to locate human blood and remains was the lead, The house, the dog, ran through the open living space downstairs nose to the ground. being, let out the back door to the patio when he
aged drain cover had at Santa he stopped and indicated to the hand allow that he could smell blood the hand allow approached the drain. The cover was slightly ajar and an uncoiled garden hose lying near by given the rest of the house was presented so immaculately. The displaced hose was uncharacteristically sloppy and looked ass, though it had been recently used the cadaver dog also alerted had a clothes draw on the second floor need Dylan's bedroom. It was empty, but police were developing a theory. The killer had hoped to down their bloody clothes over the drain outside before placing them in their drier detectives. so tested for blood in the home office. That might not have been
visible to the naked eye. They spread of substance that revealed Tracy amounts of blood. On the walls, floor, sofa, bed and door frame. It indicated that a large scale clean up had taken place after Roberts murder, but the for authorities were called to the saying the entire home was very clean. With the captain of the ship, crime unit. Later saying, a lot of evidence that we should have seen at the house, we didn't say a search of Dylan Wards, room uncovered three pace: Cutlery Box set designed to hold a carvingknife a large fork and a small and I've the smaller knife was missing, detectives contacted the manufacture

Dylan's room also contained trove of items used for dominant and submissive sex acts, including shackles chains with locks, metal, collars, braced than dangle restraints, clamps hawks and math gag He also had a collection of manuals on sight, masochistic practices and the books dedicated to the subject of inflicting pain or enslaving others for sexual gratification. Many of these texts contains passages highlighted,
by the radar when these items were first discovered, Dylan, was up front with detectives, Hay and Joseph engaged in Bay Day S m. That was unacceptable explanation, but in the context of Robert On murder, police did wonder whether the items were used to restrain or smother Robert traces of amen were found on and around Roberts genitals when tested it produced a puzzling resolved. The seamen belonged to Robert, but there was nothing to suggest ass. He willingly participated in any sex acts. The night of his murder.
Among Dylan Wards belongings was an electrical shockwave generator. This device, controlled by a second party, released electrical impulses capable of causing the target individual to it. calculated, even when sedated or under an aesthetic a search of Joseph process. Computer indicated that hey into Dylan were familiar with this machine on a fetish saw that he belonged to Joseph listed Electra torture as an activity that hey and Dylan enjoy, Robert seamen was also found inside his own rectum, with authorities pointing out that cloud, There were many items and devices recovered from Dylan Wards Bedroom designed to be inserted.
