Basics points murder investigators focuses on!

NAIL DOWN THE TIMELINE
The Timeline is an essential part of every homicide investigation – get it right and it can open as well close avenues of investigation and prove or break a suspect’s alibi. Learning everything there is to know about a victim’s final days and weeks allows investigators to get to know the victim, their habits, friends and hobbies
2. FOLLOW EVERY LEAD
Keeping an open mind about the causes and possible perpetrators of a crime is essential to an investigator’s success. Homicides are rarely straightforward, and following every lead – no matter how contrived they seem – is crucial. Whether it’s witness statements, or tips called in by the public, detectives never know where a lead is going to take them

3. TREAT EVERYTHING AS EVIDENCE
Everything at a crime scene from the victim’s body to the position of the furniture can be considered evidence. Systematically processing the scene can dramatically increase the chances of solving the crime – not just the collection of Forensic evidence and fingerprints, but determining what does or doesn’t belong at a scene can be just as useful as DNA or a murder weapon.
4. PERSEVERE CRIME SCENE
We all know the rule about the first 48 hours being the most important - but it’s not the only time period that can impact an investigation. Lapses in time – from months to decades – can mean that cold cases suddenly become solved ones. Technology catches up with evidence collected at a time when, for instance DNA perhaps didn’t exist, and years later can include or exclude a suspect from an investigation. Perhaps even more importantly, over the course of time, friendships and relationships end, loyalties change and consciences grow.
