It took two days for Chen Shi, Lin Dongxue, and Xu Xiaodong to sift out footage that captured The Silent Man from a large number of surveillance videos. Three bottles of eye drops were used. Chen Shi was dizzy from watching it all. Xu Xiaodong asked, "When there’s automatic face recognition systems, it’d be good. I’m not nearsighted from playing games, but I’m about to be nearsighted from watching surveillance footage all day.”

"Be more grateful. At least we can watch it at 4 times or 8 times the normal speed. Think about the previous era where you could only watch in real time. The life of the police was even more sad." Chen Shi said.

"But there weren’t so many weird criminals at that time." Lin Dongxue said.

Chen Shi smiled and shook his head. "Youngster, don't think the past is better than the present. Do you know how many rampant criminals there were over twenty years ago?"

"Tch, you’re really trying to sell it with your age. How old were you then anyway?"

Chen Shi marked all the locations where The Silent Man had been photographed on the map and then tried to connect them. Lin Dongxue was puzzled by his intentions. Chen Shi explained, "This is my thinking. Although The Silent Man has a map, he may not be able to distinguish North, South, East, or West and went in the opposite direction. That’s why he was delayed by several days."

"It's no wonder that after the incident, he appeared twice at the first scene. It was to set off again after going back to the starting point!" Lin Dongxue suddenly realized.

Xu Xiaodong couldn't help but feel annoyed. "We should have sent someone to monitor the scene of the first case at that time so this wouldn’t have happened."

Lin Dongxue narrowed her eyes at him. "Hindsight is 20/20. Even after knowing that there was going to be a second murder, we wouldn’t have expected the murderer to run back to the crime scene for this purpose."

There was a miserable cry from the corridor. It turned out that it was the family of the deceased Li who came to claim the corpse. The three stopped arguing. Chen Shi sighed and shook his head. "Let’s hurry up and get back to work so we don’t have a third murder!"

Chen Shi connected the points on the map using the map found at the crime scene. It required a lot of brainpower to sort out the chronological order of The Silent Man appearing at each point. Xu Xiaodong felt that his head was turned to mush just from watching, but Chen Shi got it done. He pointed to the map and said, "From these routes, The Silent Man’s sense of direction is really worrying. Over the last two days, he’s been looking for the Food Administration Bureau’s compound like a headless fly. He only had this map on hand and there’s no North, South, East, West indicated on the map. Only up, down, left and right.”

Lin Dongxue said, "According to these routes, the starting point for The Silent Man is near Binhe Road. Does he live there?"

"It's very probable. Let's take
