It is clear that everyone knew the victim, Marisa Hightower, in one way or another, be it a slight connection or a long-time association. What is not clear is the status of these relationships, including relationships among the suspects themselves. Was Ms. Hightower involved with someone to some extent? We don’t know; there are certainly no signs of a disgruntled lover or someone’s need for revenge for a perceived wrong-doing, and no signs of any business deal gone wrong. So maybe it’s best to turn our attention to some motivation that goes beyond any relationship.
