According to radio traffic, after about 9 p.m., RPD detective Robert Scribner had arrived at the scene, among other detectives.

A member of the RPD scoured past the small area of Birch Avenue near the area of the homicide. As a result, an RPD officer’s pair of medical gloves with some blood was recovered.

The RPD’s Mobile Command Center also arrived Monday night.

In December 2017, a man living in the same apartment building had made claims of arson after someone had entered his residence while he was asleep and set several of his belongings on fire. However, the initial conclusion by investigating officers was that the man’s story did not really add up to the situation found at the scene.
