unsolved case

We have searched the house belonging to victim and his wife, but found nothing useful in the investigation. There are no clear signs of any violence taking place in the household, like blood stains or any damage to the interior or exterior.

We searched the room (anonymised) was using as his study, in the desk drawers we have found several notebook containing different notes about programming solutions. Computer used by the victim in the study contained only different versions of (anonymised) Omni, but latest of them was from December 1991. We have found one version of Vector Solutions 1.0, but we were unable to determine how company Vector Solutions would be linked to the victim. Also we did not found any trace of such company being registered in United Kingdom.

It looks like (anonymised) and (anonymised) were sleeping in separate bedrooms, but nothing else in the house would suggest problems in their relationship - quite recent photos from their vacation in Spain were found in the living room on the mantelpiece.

We have searched the garage and small garden attached to the house, but found nothing that would be useful in investigation.

unsolved case bullets and bullet wounds

report content
unsolved case

Both bullets found in body of the victim were shot from same gun, 9mm caliber, widely used in many types of handguns. Since we don't have the shell cases we can only speculate, but since bullets lost most of the impact power while colliding with bones it would suggest low gunpowder cartridges or shots from long distance.

Lack of the gunpowder residue on the victim's clothes suggest that the shots were fired from at least 2 meters away, which would put the shooter in the doorstep of the office or further away from the victim. The longest distance available inside the office would be around 7 meters while shooting through the opened doors from the office belonging to (anonymised), but at that distance the accuracy would be much lower and the it would be too risky for the shooter.

The bullets entered the victim almost horizontally, so trajectory of the bullets suggest that the shots were fired by someone of height similar to the victim or slightly shorter. Also it suggests that the shots were fired from distance between 2 and 3 meters away, accuracy suggest that most likely shooter had previous experience with firearms.

report content

Police technicians have checked the contents of (anonymised) computer that was found in his office. It seems that he was using it for professional purposes only, on the hard disk we have found several versions of (anonymised) Omni, program that was the main product of company distributed among their clients and used by them as package for business management. First version, 1.0, was dated in 1990, when company was established, latest version, 3.1, was dated on March 1992 and since then it seem not much was going on with that project.

We have found the additional material in directory protected by password. After surpassing the protection we have found different program, similar to (anonymised) Omni, but with wider range of available options and called Vector Solutions 1.0. So far we were unable to find any informations about company called Vector Solutions, there are no signs of such company being registered in United Kingdom.

We have checked content of e-mail accounts of (anonymised), but it seems he mainly used them to receive newsletters from several IT news message boards, although we haven't found any signs of his activity on those message boards.
