Lin Qiupu roughly recorded Li Min's words and said, “I will check what you said. Don’t leave Long’an in the near future and keep your phone on.”
Li Min slapped his chest really hard. “My body stands straight and tall and I’m not afraid of my shadow being slanted. I didn't kill him. Please investigate as you please... But can my daughter's affairs be kept confidential?”
“You can rest assured on that.”
After bidding farewell to Li Min, Lin Qiupu read Lin Dongxue's message in the project group. She sent, “Attorney Bai has been killed. Hurry on over if you can. The address is...”
“No way?” Lin Qiupu directed the crowd. “Let’s hurry over.”
Attorney Bai died in his own home. When Lin Dongxue and Chen Shi didn’t get through to his phone, they went to his office. Colleagues said that he didn’t come to work today, so they went to his house to visit him. The curtains were closed and his car was parked downstairs.

“He seems to have returned home, ready to rest, but then he suddenly had a guest visit, so he hurriedly put on a button-up shirt.”
“Correct!” Chen Shi went to the bathroom and glanced inside. “The hot water was still boiling in there. If this deadly visitor didn't come, he might have taken a bath and gone to bed... It should have been a case committed last night.”
Chen Shi squatted down, looked at the glass coffee table at an angle so that the light hit the table, and said, “A cup was put on the table. Was it taken away?”
“The poisoning method again?”
Chen Shi went into the kitchen. From the house’s details, it could be seen that Attorney Bai was very fond of neatness and order. He may even have obsessive-compulsive disorder.
