Back at the bases lab your investigation continues to prove fruitful. The Blood sample brings an automatic DNA match which given the electrical powers used makes a lot of sense.
The records link back to someone who should have been fried in the electric chair 5 years ago. Jimmy Kaatz, AKA Felix Winger, AKA Walter Smith, AKA The Electrocutioner. A nasty piece of work who somehow escaped a florida death chamber when a freak lightning bolt struck the prison at the exact moment the electric chair was activate.
They thought hed been incinerated by the accident but it was later revealed hed survived. The Electrocutioner as he took to calling himself has since gone on a 5 year spree of bank robberies, murder, and mayhem. Hes wanted in multiple states including Florida who wants to make sure they finish the job this time.
The cash grab also makes sense given the identity of the perp. Kaatz is known to live high on the hog and well beyond his means which leads him to running out of cahs fast. He then robs banks to finace his lifestyle. He also robbed 2 casinos known to be owned by the Crime Syndicate. Rumors have ciruclated that they have a price on his head. He may be desperate because his usual MO is high stakes bank robberies, so this is out of his normal MO.
The Dirt also leads to an interesting discovery. The Dirt is flecked with Horse manure and oats. This can lead to a single conclusion, hes been around a horse training facility and in the case of Bay City that means the Bay City downs a race track in the Redwood City area which has legal gambling and a casino owned by the Mojave tribe.
This means he might be hanging around the casino or even hiding out in or near the track. Why he might be there is unknown given that he likes to lives high on the hog.
The Police investigator also calls you and gives you the name of 3 local fences who would be most likely to be willing and able to fence that much actual jewelry. he could just pawn it mind you, hed need a high money high risk fence with connections to the local and foreign jewelry markets.
no need go ahead and keep the hero point and yes the forensiscs capacity of the lab gives an automatic +4 to any Invesitgation or gather information roll due to its mastercrafted tools and equipment, and extensve database.
the professions forensics can also give you a +2 bonus with a successful roll which it did so yed you first roll was more then sufficent.
you suiddes out the most likey suspect, his possible location, and where he might go to fence the jewerly.
