The room was left for Somerset exactly as it had been found. When Somerset arrived he was amazed at how large the shop lab was. The walls were extremely high and the vaulted ceiling caused his footsteps to echo in sharp taps as he entered empowering him with a sense of authority. The beams and rafters were visible above him as if a normal ceiling had never been made. The massive windows near the top of the walls let in so much of the early- afternoon sun that almost the entire room was illuminated. The sunlight was so intense that Somerset had to look away from the window area after a time and blink his eyes for several seconds to get a clear picture of the dead man on the jigsaw. The jigsaw was positioned almost exactly in the center of the room and fully lit up by the sun almost as if it were a spotlight. The jigsaw was so massive and powerful that it surely would have killed Smith the moment his neck made contact with it. Aside from the grizzly gash on Smith's neck, there were no signs of struggle or other wounds. Somerset prodded a note left behind by Smith that lay slightly crumpled on his desk. The note made perfect sense out of why Smith would want to kill himself and do it this gruesomely and in this setting. The writing looked to be a perfect match as well, and would at least take days to be proven a forgery by an analyst. Somerset took one more quick glance around the room and proclaimed that Smith was murdered.
How did he know?
