Indicators of a potential criminal act(s) On further investigation from the neighborhood, it was revealed that the man who was living lonely in a small apartment, developed a strained relationship with his business partners named Tom, Dick, and Alfred over money matters. On his refusal to pay off the money due to him, his business partners threatened him of dire consequences. James did not pay heed to their threatening calls and took a soft attitude towards payment of the money, which he borrowed from them in his personal capacity to meet some domestic urgency. It is not necessary that the murder was committed by the same business partners. It might be done by some hired killer on payment from business partners or it may be the attempts of dacoits or a dacoit to deprive James of his valuables.
