“Although this is circumstantial evidence, it is very damning. The reason why investigators take computers is to look for evidence that looks like four.” like this.
“In order to get around the hearsay of the investigation, the experts need to confirm the investigation, and the prosecutors will use the investigation as a confession of the party from Brian that he committed the crime.
