Jing Tong’s smile froze as her spirits were dampened by his words.
She put her hands on the desk and sneered after a long time. She said nonchalantly, “It’s none of your business. I didn’t force him. Besides, I’ve changed my target and won’t pester you anymore. Shouldn’t you be happy?”
Jiang Yu frowned and didn’t argue back as he decided to curb his urge.
“Go back. You don’t have the right to ask about this case.”
Jing Tong was furious.
“I know even if you don’t say it.” She snorted. “There’s definitely no progress, right? You can only target Ye Shengge. How useless.”
The contempt in the girl’s eyes was so obvious that Jiang Yu was furious.
He had always been calm, and many people had provoked and insulted him, but he rarely showed any emotions. Only Jing Tong often made him lose his rationality.
“Ye Shengge is the prime suspect,” Jiang Yu said coldly. “All the evidence points to her.”
If Ye Shengge hadn’t been so determined to deny it, and her assistant hadn’t insisted that she hadn’t killed anyone, Jiang Yu would’ve thought the case was solved.
“That doesn’t mean she’s the murderer!”
“The CCTV shows that no one entered the makeup room after Ye Shengge left. Who else could it be?”
“Perhaps the murderer has been hiding in the makeup room way beforehand!” Jing Tong blurted out. “The makeup room is usually very messy. It’s too easy for the culprit to hide himself!”
Jiang Yu was dazed. “What did you say?”
“Isn’t that always the case in those crime dramas on TV? The murderer often lies in wait at the crime scene and runs away after the victim is found,” Jing Tong said.
Jiang Yu couldn’t be bothered to argue with her, so he played the CCTV footage on the computer.
All the CCTV footage on the day of the murder had been saved, and he had watched them countless times. However, he suddenly recalled that the CCTV footage was blacked out for half an hour at dawn, and it was said that it was because of the circuit inspection.
However, what if the murderer had sneaked into the makeup room?
It wasn’t impossible. According to the staff of the TV station, Ye Shengge was the only one who had used the makeup room that morning. Other than Ye Shengge and her assistant, only the makeup artist and director had been inside the room. The fewer people there were, the less likely the murderer would be found.
If it had been Ye Shengge, he might’ve figured out that the murderer was hiding in the makeup room because Ye Shengge’s schedule was fixed, but Xie Siqi’s appearance was an accident.
This meant that the murderer was certain that Xie Siqi would show up.
Jing Tong was a bit surprised. “What are you doing?”
Jiang Yu looked at her and then at the screen. He immediately skipped to the part of the footage where the victim’s corpse had been found.
However, there was nothing suspicious about the number of people entering.
Jiang Yu wasn’t surprised. The murderer was obviously meticulous and wouldn’t leave such an obvious flaw, but it was indeed a new idea.
He took a deep breath and turned off the CCTV footage.
“Why? Did you find something new?” Jing Tong was smug. “Is it all thanks to me?”
“Nothing new.” Jiang Yu retorted hostilely. “You can leave now.”
Jing Tong snorted and said, “I won’t leave.”
Jiang Yu ignored her and asked Officer Liu and the others to leave.
Jing Tong tagged along.
‘Tsk, and yet, he said he hadn’t found anything new.’
