Chen Shi called Lin Dongxue to go to the scene again. At this time, the investigation was in progress. The identities of the two deceased were also found out. They spent some time at a nearby underground bar last night. The last person who saw the two deceased last night was the bar owner.
Nearby surveillance footage was also being retrieved. One surveillance camera captured the murderer’s face. He was a tall man wearing a gray trench coat. In the blurry picture, he was photographed with his hands wrapped in bandages holding a sledgehammer.
Chen Shi told Zhou Xiao to get in the car first, and then said to Lin Dongxue, "I think the murderer might live nearby. Zhou Xiao may know him. To be precise, Zhou Xiao’s other personality knows him!"
"Did he accompany the murderer home after losing his memory last night? ... Should I bring more people?"
"Call Xiaodong over. You two should bring guns and handcuffs."
The four of them went inside the housing district and walked into the third building. Chen Shi asked Zhou Xiao, "Do you remember which door it was?"
Zhou Xiao shook his head, "I have no impression at all, but I often wake up on the stairs leading to the second floor from the third floor, usually late at night. Mr. Chen, you said my brain would fill up the memory by itself as if my memories are true. At first, I woke up in a strange place.

So, I thought I was sleepwalking..." He still had a hint of hope. "I hope it's sleepwalking!"
Xu Xiaodong expressed his feelings. "Human memory is the most unreliable thing. My grandfather often tells a story that a friend of his was participating in the War of Resistance against Japanese aggression and ran across three villages with a Japanese man in his arms. Later, my dad told me that my grandfather was confused the whole time. The truth is this: His friend didn’t join the army at all. When the Japanese came, he carried a cabinet and ran away. My grandfather remembered it as him running away with a Japanese person. He swears on the story every time. My dad corrected him, and he wasn’t very happy. He always said that what he remembered is the correct version."
Lin Dongxue laughed. "Many legendary stories probably came about in this manner!"
Chen Shi said, "Let’s not talk about that now. Let's go up from the third floor and inquire about it from house to house!"
The four people knocked on the doors of each house. As it was daytime, many were out at work. They were all a little nervous when they knocked on the doors, fearing that a murderer would suddenly appear.
When they got to the sixth floor, a girl opened the door. She glanced at Zhou Xiao in surprise, and then asked, "Who are you looking for?"
"We are the police and we’re investig
