[...things not to do in the dressing room...work]  
*This was a stupid idea, trying to work on a case file when you didn't even know if you were going to actually make it to the trial, but he had nothing else to do and he hadn't seen Gumshoe in a while and he was bored out of his skull because honestly, who was he supposed to talk to really that wasn't some alternate of himself and he seemed to have rotten luck with being around when people arrived and generally with the way people flocked to new arrivals, it seemed a little mean to add himself to the mess.

Which left him in a small sitting room he had found, sitting at a desk, a scattering of paper and pictures laid out messily in front of him, while he tried to figure out if his client really was guilty or not guilty*


[Ooc: Yes, he's free to bother, but honestly, he's working so...yeah.]

*... and this was another room that had appeared since he last mapped this section of the Dressing Room.

He sighs in some irritation and makes a note, then opens the door cautiously to check the interior.

It looks like a regular sitting room, and he recognises the Wright sitting at the desk as being the only version he has so far met who was his own age and still a lawyer. He's amused to note that the man appears to be working through case files.*


I think you're the first lawyer I have encountered here who appears to be gainfully employed. I apologise for disturbing you.

*Looks up in surprise*

No, please disturb. I'm at a dead end anyways and with my luck I'll come back after the trial's over and my client's been declared guilty.

*He hesitates a little, but even after eight years the draw of case files is strong. He shakes his head wryly at himself but walks over to the desk and flips through some of the crime scene photographs.*

Murder?

*Nods, studying this Edgeworth curiously as he sifts through some of files, pulling out the autopsy report*

Blow to the head, shoulders and neck.
Miles Edgeworth, Professeur de Loi: Grey Suitprofesseurdeloi on March 9th, 2008 08:28 pm (UTC)
Several blows? Hm. *He frowns a little, doesn't even really notice Wright looking at him as he's too busy examining the photographs.* That makes it more complicated.

Who is your client?
heldobjections on March 9th, 2008 08:33 pm (UTC)
The husband.

So, unless I pull something out of my ass, I'm fucked anyways.
Miles Edgeworth, Professeur de Loi: Thinkingprofesseurdeloi on March 9th, 2008 08:36 pm (UTC)
Well not necessarily. *He leans against the edge of the desk, still with photos in hand.*

Is he a big man? She doesn't look like a particularly powerful woman. Why would it take so many blows for him to kill her - especially from behind?
heldobjections on March 9th, 2008 08:40 pm (UTC)
Ah, good to know I wasn't the only one that noticed it.

There's also something a bit suspicious about the amount of blood in the photo of the body. I was going to get another autopsy, but...

*Motions to the room with one hand*
Miles Edgeworth, Professeur de Loi: Thinkingprofesseurdeloi on March 9th, 2008 08:58 pm (UTC)
*Fishes in his pocket for his spectacles, then looks at the photograph again.

Irritably*


Why are these damned things always in black and white? Don't the police department ever mean to catch up with the times? Colour photography has only been available for a century, after all.

Ah yes. Not enough blood for that sort of injury. Absence of spatter as well, I presume?
heldobjections on March 9th, 2008 09:05 pm (UTC)
Probably because it looks more dramatic in black and white.

Exactly. I swear I'm still doing the police department's work still.
Miles Edgeworth, Professeur de Loi: Thinkingprofesseurdeloi on March 9th, 2008 09:14 pm (UTC)
Well if she wasn't killed at home (and I presume this is her home?) then that automatically casts doubt on the husband's guilt.

*Flips to another photograph*.

Is this the supposed murder weapon? And I presume this is also from the home? Hm.

One wonders if the severity of the injuries is covering up evidence of another blow from another weapon. *He arches an eyebrow at Wright questioningly*
heldobjections on March 9th, 2008 09:41 pm (UTC)
*Stops, grabbing for the photo, looking at for a minute*

You just might be right actually.

*Drops the photo and reaches for his pen, making a note on the legal pad*

If that's true though...then why?
Miles Edgeworth, Professeur de Loi: Thinkingprofesseurdeloi on March 9th, 2008 09:48 pm (UTC)
*He smiles a little at that.*

Well I think finding the original crime scene might answer that question, but I would hazard a guess that the original murder weapon might be unique to someone or somewhere. The autopsy would have identified its marks, perhaps?

Which is why I asked for another one. I've had my fair share of autopsy blunders. If you're looking for something specific, sometimes you need to ask for them to point it out, you know.

...Of course you know.

I knew going over this file was going to be a bad idea. I want to look at the crime scene again, but I can't here. Even with the pop up rooms.
Miles Edgeworth, Professeur de Loi: Thinkingprofesseurdeloi on March 9th, 2008 10:07 pm (UTC)
Hm. To be honest, looking at the extent of the injuries, I'm not sure that they will find any marks from beneath the later ones.

But you may want to ask them to pay particular attention to the time of death, and to the settling of blood and lividity. That should help establish whether the body was moved.

How well do you remember the crime scene? It may not be impossible to create the room, but otherwise, you could try writing down everything that you remember seeing - don't try to question it until afterwards, just write it. Sometimes that can bring up interesting paradoxes.
