He was still fully clothed in cold-weather apparel befitting of the season, including hiking boots, mittens, several layered jackets, and thick trousers made of wool. A member of Adrian’s hunting party named James was questioned, and he told the police that he had overheard Adrian having a heated argument with his girlfriend, Lulo. According to James, the argument became aggressive – Adrian picked up a rock and bashed Lulo over the head, killing her. After delivering the blow, Adrian looked up to see James watching him and was so startled that he turned and ran right off of the cliff to his demise.
James pointed out the rock that he believed Adrian had used to hit Lulo, and it was sent in for forensic analysis. After testing it, the lab discovered that Adrian’s fingerprints were indeed on the rock that supposedly killed Lulo. The police immediately arrested James for Adrian’s murder. How did they conclude Adrian was slain and that James was the culprit when forensics seemed to corroborate James’s story?
