This case study is about deceased Marcus Donoghue, who stays in Giggleshire and owns a restaurant Queen of Heart. In this case there are many suspects, namely, Grant Lewis, Ant Johnson, James Mountford and Jennifer Donoghue. These persons are prime suspects of his death. The motive of investigation is to find the actual culprit on the basis of the evidence which is collected by the police and detectives(Abad and S.H.A.H., 2013).
In police investigation there are various names came in limelight the first name came under the shadow is Grant Lewis, an eighteen years old guy, who is a sports science student and a part -time waiter at The Grey Goose, which is a restaurant co – owned by James Mountford. James Mountford was a mayor and having inherited properties, and focusing on the restaurant, to build it a premier restaurant in the town. Ant Johnson, who is an ex- professor in the University of St. Ethelburga, and had a divorce that destroyed him mentally. Jennifer Donoghue was wife of the person who died, Marcus. She was working as a fitness instructor, she met to Marcus when he was establishing his restaurant, The Queen of Hearts almost three years ago, when she was his client. If we did not consider the other persons like Grant Lewis and Johnson, because as given in the study that they do not relate to the Marcus in any manner, except they stays in the same area and Lewis working in The Grey Goose which is the competition of The Queen of Hearts, as no two great restaurants can stay in the same local area. But Grant Lewis still don't have any consequences with Marcus, so he is out of the shadow now.
Second prime suspects can be James Mountford and Jennifer Donoghue, James Mountford is the co- founder of The Grey Goose can be raise the issue to use the horse-meat as substitute of beef, as it is published in the newspaper, but this does not sound suspicious, it's just a business rivalry to sustain in local area(Nienaber, Kische and Rousseau, 2013).
According to the entire case study, the main culprit seems to be his wife Jennifer, as police the gathered the evidence. In the first instance, she told that she married to him, because of her love for Marcus and emotionally attached with him, but on the other hand, Sara Alaam, given a statement to the police, as she was the ex- girlfriend of Marcus, and a receptionist and PA in his restaurant, apart from that she told that Marcus never wanted to marry with Jennifer, he got married with her because she told him that she was pregnant, and as a good human being Marcus married her,but before Marcus said agreed to get married she was already booked a wedding venue. Marcus shared all the things with Sara as an old friend, that shows that his married life is a disaster. He told to Sara that he married with Jennifer, as a genuine person but after marriage he came to know that the reason he agreed to marry that all was a lie, there was no pregnancy. Marcus had a chat with Sara, before a weak when he died, he told her that his marriage was pretty much over and he can't forgive his wife for certain things. He was hinting that he is going to file a divorce but he was worried about how he can pay the higher alimony to Jennifer, he was not getting the way to prove her a cheater(Baker, 2014).
There is also an another scene which is behind the eyesight, as Giggleshire spy investigated, exposed a hidden truth, the spy came across with one of Jennifer's Facebook friend that Jennifer already married, before make a couple with Marcus, although her first husband is still a mystery, because she did not post any images, but she was definitely married before Marcus, her first husband died in a accident with a jet ski.
This accident is similar to Marcus case, he also lost his life in accident, he was riding a red bike, and on the same night Jennifer went to her sister's home in Little Molling, for the first time with Marcus's red Volvo, except to drive her on silver Audi A3, when she can drive her own car, the questions raised is, why she drive his Volvo? This can't be coincident that the bike and car having the same red colour. She played a safe game, with the statement that, she was her sister's home to look after her Labrador dog, and that dog make scratches on car when he jumps and to protect her car from scratches she bought the red Volvo, to be not destroyed the paint of her own Audi, but on another view, it looks like perfect plan, there was no evidence find where the bike has gone, and someone hit the bike with a force with an intention to kill Marcus and it is also possible that Jennifer push his bike from the backside with force that make him to die, and if her Audi traces might found on the bike with a silver scratches she will definitely proven as a culprit, but when the cops found a burnt bike with traces of red paint, that was not efficient to prove that whether it is the own colour of bike or the red Volvo, which was driven by Jennifer. She can deny this proof because there was not any accurate evidence which states that she is a culprit, but on behalf of the place where the bike was found, it was completely a full proof plan of Jennifer with her brother where the burnt bike found in the Old Gigglestown Deer Park, her brother was the head gardener, he helped her to burn the bike on bonfire to demolish the evidences. Hence, all the evidences are against Jennifer so she is the culprit because she has a economic benefit too, after Marcus death, she can own the his property(Shaw, Cerqueira and Brooks, 2012).
The above report is about a murder mystery of Marcus, and all the manifest shows that Jennifer, his wife planned for his murder, according to the collected proofs and the other person's witnessed the case(Vergnaud, Romaguera and Peeters2013).
