The broken cable they found earlier and the one they just discovered was one and the same.
Chen Shi looked around the place and muttered to himself, "As a manager, isn’t his lifestyle a bit too poor?"
He also found that the legs of the chair had created a lot of friction marks on the floor. Obviously, this person often sat in front of the computer for long periods of time. Before the autopsy, he had found that the victim had a ring of fat around his waist and had hemorrhoids. These were all characteristics of a sedentary lifestyle.
There was a lot of cigarette ash on the table as well as the remnants of soups and sauces that had splashed and fallen from the food he ate. Some of these splashes were found on the computer.
Tao Yueyue scorned, "He’s as dirty as you."
"Nonsense. My house is very clean."
“Is it? The table and underneath the bed are all very dirty.”
"Really? We’ll clean it up tonight."
Tao Yueyue opened a drawer. "I found an important clue!"

"Why don't you have time? Aren’t you unemployed?"
"Kid, don't say such hurtful things like that, okay? Uncle made a bet with someone. If the case is broken within 24 hours, then we can go to the best restaurant for a meal, okay?"

"He is not the owner of this residence. The house is rented and Master Lu is called Lu Jianye."
"I remember that he’s the manager of a lighting company. Is his salary not very high? Why does he live in a rented house? The house is so plain an
