"Someone climbed out of this window that night. The main point is not the traces on the window frame, but the suspicious fiber on the pipe. Can we take it off ourselves?"
"That isn’t a good idea. I just saw it. That piece of fiber is on the fifth floor. It's too dangerous to climb out of the bathroom window in order to pick it up.
"Then we should go to the fifth floor!"
Lin Dongxue smiled bitterly. "All right!"
The two knocked on the door of the tenant on the fifth floor, took the small piece of fiber stuck in the pipe from the window and put it in an evidence bag. Chen Shi said excitedly, "As long as we find out who left it, we’ll know who killed Duan Lin!"
"Why wouldn't it be left by the corpsedismemberer?"
"Uncle said that the door of the house was open when he came back on the morning of the 24th. I checked before and the lock had no traces of being picked. It had been opened with a key. The person with the spare key is most likely Duan Lin's boyfriend. After Duan Lin committed suicide, her boyfriend came here to deal with the aftermath and took her cell phone away. At this time, the dismemberer arrived, and the boyfriend escaped through the bathroom window in a panic.

"Just check the surveillance footage in the bus waiting room to see if he lied..."
"Shall we go to the bus station now?"
Chen Shi checked his watch. It was already pretty late. "No, let’s go and meet Zhang Xiao!"
When they called Zhang Xiao, he said that he was off work and was waiting for a bus on a certain street. Chen Shi told him not to wander off, and that they would arrive immediately.
Half an hour later, the two met Zhang Xiao. He was dressed more decently since he had just gotten off work, and he smelled of shoe polish. As soon as he saw Lin Dongxue, he greeted her with a smile on his face. Chen Shi said, "Let's find a place to talk."
"There’s a Starbucks nearby."
When they got to Starbucks, Zhang Xiao expertly ordered a lot of food and drinks, as if he was a regular customer. Chen Shi wondered if this kid was going to scam him out of a meal. Zhang Xiao finished ordering and asked
