It had been weeks since James had heard from his girlfriend. So he called his buddy and told him that he was worried. They agreed to meet up at James' girlfriend’s house.
They met at the house and went to the door, James let himself in and tried a light switch, no light. He tried all the switches that he could find, finally finding a working light switch down the hall.
On his way back to the door where his friend was waiting he tripped and fell to the floor, his friend came running up to help him and realized that he had just tripped over the body of James' girlfriend.
The police were called and made an arrest the same day.
Who did they arrest and why?Spoiler for Hint,
They arrested James....
Weeks without contact yet he "let himself in"? If they were fighting; I would say keys would be taken away or locks changed if it were a fight so bad they didn't talk for weeks. Weeks which he used to plan this out to make him look concerned and have a witness to the search of the house. The whole light switch thing doesn't sit right; seems staged... "oh this light doesn't work, nor this, not this one either" like a rat in a maze leading himself to the cheese; which just happens to be the light down the hall where her body lays. MURDERER!
Either that or for breaking and entering....
But ya it was James that got a ride in the squad car.
