From the outside of the first-floor condo, they observed blood on a windowsill and more blood smeared on the walls, window, and floor inside. The furniture inside appeared in disarray. Police forced entry through the locked front door. The living room appeared to have been cleared out, with the exception of a pile of clothes, towels/linens, furniture, and other household items on the far-right side of the living room.
