A large bag full of unusued Purell wipes was just outside her door. She had an external lockbox for a spare key for dog-walkers. She had been using an app to coordinate the walks while she was away at work.
The spare key was still inside the box and it was not damaged. The victim’s wallet, computer and carious cords were taken from her kitchen island. She cancelled her credit cards but one had already been used to make s $315 purchase from Walmart. A knife had also been removed from a block in the kitchen.
Officers searched for prints but were unable to find any.
