We, Sofia Alfonso, Kenneth Huang, Christine Park, and Caitlin Zhang (the primary investigators of this case), ask that Christopher Citrine be charged of homicide for the murder of Lovdeep Citrine which occurred on the afternoon of September 22nd 2014.
At first, we suspected Mulan Vermillion, however she did not have any cuts on her hands although it is nearly impossible for the offender to stab a victim without getting cut themselves. Her DNA was not detected around the airplane washroom where the incident took place.
While 4-Hydroxycoumarins, an anticoagulant found in rodenticides, was detected in Lovdeep’s stomach, the coroner stated that his liver and kidneys were not damaged despite the fact that rodenticides are typically known to harm these organs.
While there could have been a possible attempt to poison Lovdeep, Lovdeep died before the rat poison harmed him. Hence Mulan Vermillion and Austin Khaki did not kill Lovedeep Citrine.
DNA analysis confirmed that Christopher Citrine’s blood was found at the scene of the crime. Christopher has a cut on his hand which can happen when you stab somebody. Christopher stated that he is a mechanic that works on planes which means he could have had access to the plane Lovdeep Citrine was murdered in. Christopher stated that he cut himself working on a plane, but the plane that Lovdeep was found in was brand new. Was Christopher working on the new 777? If so why?
Christopher and Carol had allegedly dated before Lovdeep married Carol. Lovedeep and Carol allegedly met at Christopher’s 25th Birthday Party meaning that she would have to have gotten married with Lovdeep and pregnant in less than a year. Christopher was the best man at their wedding. Why would Christopher be able to get over the fact that his father was dating his ex-girlfriend so quickly yet be completely apathetic to his father’s death?
Furthermore, Christopher’s internet company was crushed by his father, Lovdeep kicked him out and essentially forced Christopher to resort to being mechanic. Lovdeep had appointment next week with personal lawyer, which might have thought about changing Christopher’s patrimony because Lovdeep was going to have another child.
Looking back on the convincing evidence that we had gathered, our investigation team is confident in our decision that Christopher Citrine is the murderer of Lovdeep Citrine. Perhaps the most important piece of information that has attributed to this accusation is the blood left on the bathroom door and Christopher’s reasoning for such an incident. As the plane was newly bought by Lovdeep, the possibility of a repair job done by Christopher seems improbable giving no reason to why Christopher’s blood could possibly be on the door for something not involved with Lovdeep’s murder. Not only that, Christopher’s strained relationship with his father provides a necessary motive behind his accused actions. Ultimately, despite the surprising involvement of rat poison, we have reason to believe that Christopher Citrine is the true culprit behind this gruesome murder.
Second Conclusion: We ask that Austin Khaki and Mulan Vermillion be charged of homicide
After receiving feedback from others, we have come to a new conclusion. As stated in the evidence, the DNA samples were in fact damaged which made our previous statement very weak. It was stated that Lovdeep’s death was caused due to an exanguination(excess loss of blood). At the restaurant, there were 2 sets of fingerprints found of both Austin Khaki’s and Mulan Vermillion’s fingerprints on the rat poison samples. We concluded that the rat poison was the cause of Lovdeep’s death. We were able to narrow our choices down to FSL employees due to the fact that not only was FSL Lovdeep’s favourite restaurant of all time, the same sample of rat poison that was found at the restaurant was found in Lovdeep’s stomach contents, was found along with digested flour and partially digested chunks of food that smelled like garlic or ranch sauce. This observation allowed us to assume that Lovdeep had been eating recently. Austin Khaki was known to have hated Lovdeep because he believed that the death of his deceased wife (Jennifer Khaki) was due to Lovdeep. Although this could have happened due to the wound in his shoulder, we decided that the blood loss could have been caused by the Haematoma Formation and Haemorrhage that occurred due to the rat poisoning. While researching on Haematoma , we discovered that, “Warfarin (Coumadin): Coumadin is a blood thinner used to prevent blood clots. It is the active ingredient in many rat poisons and may cause heavy bleeding and death if too much is taken.”. This caused us to believe that the shard of broken glass was used to stab Lovdeep in order to create an exit for the blood. This was possible due to the rat poison which caused the wound to be incapable of clotting. Another piece of evidence that supported our hypothesis was the fact that rat poison may cause delayed effects. It was stated that, “First officers on the scene determined no immediate danger & called emergency medical personnel.”. Due to the fact that Lovdeep had delayed effects of 42 minutes, Austin may have been able to fool many people just by the fact that Lovdeep was not at his restaurant at the time of his death. Adding to that, Austin was known to despise rats which was why he kept large amounts of rat poison at his restaurant. Austin may have planned to use this as an excuse in order to cover up for his actions.
