Upon arriving at his mother’s doorstep, Stephen the suspect’s brother made several frantic attempts to have the door opened, but his knocks went unanswered since it had been locked from inside.

“With apprehension exhibited all over his brother’s face, Stephen’s intuition told him that something was amiss. He immediately stepped inside the house looking for his mother in the living room and bedroom to no avail. But on approaching the bathroom, he stumbled on the charred remains of his dear mother.” DCI further stated
