Case #192837465 Suicide or Murder
It has been brought to my attention that my precinct was picked to save a big case, that had about 9 or 10 deaths that was involved around one person. My boss came to me and ask me to pick anyone to help solve these cases. So I assigned each person with a case and the case that I chose, was the one about the death of Ophelia, which was said that she drowned. I need to prove and make sure that she did drowned and also were there any witnesses at the scene that could have help stop her from drowning. There was probably not much evidence because she died in the lake and if there was any kind of fingerprints or anything on her it was washed away. In the file it said that she fell off a tree branch into the water. I need to find out like if someone tried shaking the tree to make her fall or was she pushed into the water. But another thing that I need to find out is where there people around the lake that could have tried to do something to save her or even get someone to go help. First I need to find out that if she did kill herself, what was the reason for her to kill herself, like was she having problems with family, life struggles, or even man problems. From what I see that she could be mad about the death of her father or even about the situation with her and Hamlet. Ophelia had been going through a lot lately, starting with Hamlet changing and acting crazy and probably was upset with Hamlet hitting and pushing her around. I looked into finding anyone that knew here, that is still around to find out more about her and what is going on in her life that would have made her want to kill herself. In the case file it states that the investigator that looked into her death at the time said that there was no witnesses to be found at the scene or anyone that would come clean about seeing her kill herself. I went to find the person that had this case to find out what he can tell me about the death of Ophelia. He said that they really did not go deep into this case, they declared it as a suicide and closed it. They did find the branch that she fell off. I used the branch as part of my evidence. What I looked for on it was to see if there were any signs of it being cut or did it just snap and fall. There was no signs of it beings cut and this was probably my only evidence I would be able to find and use. But Since there was no witnesses I had to put everything together for the reasoning that might kill herself. I found she was going through a lot at the time first it started off with the death of her father. Her father was a very close person to her in her life. Also when she found out that Hamlet which could possible be her true love was being sent of to England and the thought that she might not never see him again. She possibly felt that she had no one left in her life and that her life could possibly means nothing anymore. From what it looks like that Ophelia just need to breathe and went into a tree and fell in the lake. When she fell in the lake she just decided that there was no reason for her to try to save herself and died.

I agree with your analysis. The idea you had in putting this case together was a good idea. Even though I chose a different scene I totally agree with you. The only question I have is were there other people at the lake when she died? Who was the person that said she fell off the tree branch?
I am a detective and I have the same questions. I mean who fell off the tree branch. Why did she feel like there was no reason for her to live. I like the way you put the case together. It was well organized.. I agree with your analysis.

I am confuse about who fell off the tree also and can you give me more details as of why she did not have a reason to live?
My reasoning is that to see if it was possible that Ophelia could have been in a tree and fell off a branch.
Being a detective, I agree with your analysis, but I am also finding wondering who fell of the branch and were the other people there when she died. I thank you for your answer and look forward to future cases.
