"Yes, the security guard said that Old Wang was on duty and had left early in the morning. The keys were left on the table and the TV was still on. Maybe he was too sleepy so he went back to sleep."
"Inquire about his address and go over to confirm... Xiaodong should go!"
Xu Xiaodong was surprised. "Why me?"
"Because I’m playing favorites."
"I have nothing to say!" Xu Xiaodong said before he left.
Chen Shi stopped him. "By the way, go to the property managers and take the hard drive back to see if it can be restored."
Lin Dongxue took the opportunity to take a good look at the body. She said, "It's a pity to die at such a young age. Could it be a crime of passion?"
"We’re not sure yet. But I think the murderer is probably someone in his social circle."
"It would be good if it’s not a serial killer."
Peng Sijue said, "Let's protect the crime scene first. Old Chen, go to my car and get a body bag. We’ll take the body back."
While they were talking, a car stopped outside. They could hear crying from inside the car before the door was even open. A neatly-dressed middle-aged couple rushed out of the car and ran straight towards the building. The woman howled, "My son!"
"Who had informed the family?" Chen Shi asked in shock.
"No one notified them... Maybe it was a neighbor!"

The mother of the deceased cried continuously and kept using her handkerchief to pound her husband's arm. The husband whispered and soothed her while holding back tears.
The most uncomfortable thing for the police was facing the family of the victims. No matter how much they comforted them, it wouldn't ease the sorrow of the couple. Chen Shi reached out and closed the door. After the woman had finished crying, he said, "Sorry that I still have to ask you questions in this moment of sorrow, but it’s for investigating the case..."
"No, you can ask!" The deceased's mother said. "We will cooperate fully with the police. As long as we can bring the murderer to justice, we are willing to spend whatever money it takes."
"It's not convenient to talk here. Why don’t we change the location?"
The four of them went to a place in the neighborhood where there were stone chairs. After sitting down, the woman was still wiping away tears endlessly. Chen Shi asked, "How should we address you?"
"My surname is Song. My wife’s surname is He.” The husband replied.
"When was the last time you saw you
