>The deceased struggled with the murderer, tore off a button, and then wanted to call for help from the railing and was attacked from the back.”     

The dummy held the railing with both hands and was placed in a hanging position.
Hu Songkai snapped his fingers: “The murderer wanted to push him down.
He was struggling, and he stepped on it to find a support point!”     

He Wei nodded and simulated the scene with Hu Songkai.
After pushing the dummy down, Du Ruanlan’s cold voice came from the communicator: “No, there is a deviation in the landing point; in front of the flower bed.”

The dummy was brought up again, and Hu Songkai changed the method; instead of pushing his back, he threw it down with its head down, but the landing point was still wrong, and the deviation was even greater.
He Wei rubbed his chin: “He raised one foot as a support, right? If the suspect didn’t push him off from behind like we tried and didn’t lift him up and throw him down, then there is only one way left.”

Hu Songkai understood again.
This time, he lifted the other leg of the dummy and lifted it off.
He and He Wei looked down together.
After Du Ruanlan checked, she made an “OK” gesture.
That’s how the person fell, and the slight data deviation could be ignored.

Hu Songkai wiped the sweat from his forehead: “It seems that the murderer is a man.
It’s not easy for a petite woman to throw a big man off in this posture.” 

The hotel was closed today, and only the security guard was on duty.
The owner of the hotel, Pan Pinghai, was a middle-aged man in his fifties with a crew cut, dark, and thin.
He was the uncle of the deceased, and on behalf of the relatives in the family, he came to ask how the case was going.

“The case can be solved in just a few hours?” Hu Songkai looked at him, “Why didn’t you come at night?” 

Pan Pinghai hurriedly explained that he had just returned from a trip in the morning, and when he got home, he heard that his nephew had an accident in the hotel, and he was terrified.
Hu Songkai asked some basic information, and He Wei called the security guard surnamed Li over: “How is the relationship between your boss and the manager usually?”

“The boss doesn’t come much, and the manager is in-charge of our hotel.” Security guard Li said mysteriously, “However, they were arguing in the office a few days ago.
I heard the boss scolding the manager.
It seems that something was wrong.”


“Chen Lei was filling his own pockets?”

Security guard Li shook his head: “I don’t know.
I’m just a small security guard; how can I know the affairs of my bosses?”

He Wei smiled, and the security guard also showed a simple and honest smile.
After Hu Songkai’s questioning was over, he went back with He Wei.
The two exchanged opinions on the road, mentioning the conflicting points about finances.
Maybe they could dig up clues along this line.

Back at the bureau, Xia Liang came to report that he had seen the surveillance from a week ago and finally found something wrong.

“Unit Captain He, look,” Xia Liang pointed at the screen that was divided into parts and said, “The one on the left is from before April 7th, and the one on the right is from April 7th to the present.
Isn’t there a difference?” 

He Wei narrowed his eyes and soon realized what the difference was.
There was a deviation in the position of the camera monitoring.
Although it was the corridor at first glance, if one looked closely, one could still find that the camera after 7th had moved to the right.

“I’m used to paying attention to the corners when I look at things.
On the 7th, there were suddenly more corners of the stairs below.
After comparing, I found that the camera was moved.” 

He Wei stretched out his hand to pat the top of Xia Liang’s head: “Not bad, the young man’s eyes are good.
Is it like this on every floor?”

Xia Liang nodded.
It was like this on every floor, and all the cameras had been moved to the right by a slight angle.
He Wei picked up his jacket, and Hu Songkai had just come back from buying a bottle of drink from the canteen and had just unscrewed it when He Wei took it away: “ErHu, let’s go to the hotel again.” 

After speaking, he unscrewed the bottle cap and took a sip, frowning: “Why buy peach flavor? It’s too sweet.”

“…Damn, you learned the habit of robbing from the Heng bandit next door, right?” Hu Songkai said viciously, “I’ve already drank it!” 

He Wei stared at him.
His eyes made it clear that he just didn’t want to deal with him, so he stopped talking nonsense and took him and Xia Liang to the Shengshi Hotel again.
Seeing the police car turn back, the security guard scratched the back of his head: “Comrade policeman, why are you back again?”


He Wei locked the car: “It’s nothing, just to borrow your security room a bit.”

——— 

He Wei and Xia Liang were watching the monitoring in the security room, and Hu Songkai was in the corridor, clinging to the wall, trying to figure out how big the blind spot of the monitoring was.

“ErHu, move a little further to the left.
Yes, retract your head further, how is your position now?”

Hu Songkai pressed against the wall, struggling to hold the walkie-talkie: “I am completely attached to the wall now, like a gecko.
It is too strenuous to go down in this posture, but if you are very familiar with the terrain, you should be able to go very quickly.”

“You go through the first floor.”

A minute later, Hu Songkai walked from the first floor to the second floor, but his figure did not appear in the surveillance.
Security guard Li, who was watching the excitement from the sidelines, exclaimed: “Oh my god, can you hide like this? It’s the first time I’ve seen it!”

Now that the criminal suspect’s modus operandi could be preliminarily determined, He Wei wrote down several key information: Male, short in stature, has certain martial arts skills, is very familiar with the internal facilities of the hotel, is thoughtful, and has certain anti-reconnaissance capabilities.

Yun Xiaoxiao and Chong Zhen’s investigation work also had some clues.
After returning, they both said at the same time: “There is a major discovery.” 

“Xiaoxiao first.”

“Yes,” Yun Xiaoxiao opened her palm-sized notebook, “Chen Lei’s family relationship is not harmonious.
His wife Wang Cui has a lover outside, and neighbors say that they often have trysts while Chen Lei is on night shift.
Last night, there was a black Buick was parked at the intersection of their house, it was that lover.” 

“Found Whose car is it.” He Wei seemed to think of something, “When we went to the hotel, we saw a black Buick.”

 Yun Xiaoxiao nodded: “Captain, you guessed it right.
Wang Cui’s lover is the hotel owner and Chen Lei’s uncle, Pan Pinghai.”
