He just needed to spend money to settle this matter. Those who made trouble just wanted money, so he could just give them money to send them away.
As for the family of the deceased, the problem might be solved if the compensation was enough.
The matter of the engineering team was a little troublesome since they had accidentally beat someone to death. If they were really convicted, he could not do anything either. This job might need to be handed over to other engineering teams.
If this was really just an accident, it was simply a matter of lost money and time. At most, they would have to go over some arguments.
He was afraid that this was not an accident but a crime purposely orchestrated by someone.
Was that person beaten to death by accident?
If it was not an accident, then it was a crime that was planned by someone from the beginning. They had deliberately provoked and lured the engineering team into beating them. Then, the person died, and the engineering team was blamed for the person’s death.
This would be a big problem.
If someone deliberately did it, it was not a matter of losing money.
Those rogues would argue indefinitely, and the family of the deceased would continue to cause trouble. The engineering project would most likely end up in jeopardy due to the extended delay. Even if Thomas used harsher means to continue the project, the other party would only escalate in return.
If one could die, so could the other. The project would definitely fail after more deaths occur. Most importantly, they had to figure out one thing.
Was it an accident or an orchestrated crime?
Thomas asked, “Have you investigated the identity of the deceased and the family of the deceased?”
Pisces nodded. “We have. The deceased’s name was Jax Gilmore, unemployed. He tagged along a person nicknamed ‘Bamboo Pole’ all the time. He did nothing every day, freeloaded everywhere, and blackmailed other people, so he had a rotten reputation.”
“I’ve also investigated the family members of the deceased, and they are indeed Jax’s family members. There is no doubt about this. It’s just that Jax’s relationship with his family is rather estranged, and there is almost no contact. But when Jax died, his family members immediately learned of it and came to cause trouble. They had been a little too quick, as if they had known he would die in advance.”
Hearing this, Thomas already made some judgments.
A person who never contacted his family. His family rushed over as soon as he had an accident and cried as if it was real.
This really raised Thomas’ suspicions.
Thomas asked, “How about the engineering team? Have you investigated who accidentally killed him?”
Pisces shook his head. “I can’t get any information at all. The factory is deserted, so there’s no surveillance at all. Besides, no video was taken during the fight, so we can only listen to verbal statements…”
“The people in the engineering team had basically fought, and the scene was very chaotic. It is not clear who killed Jax in such a chaotic situation.”
“The body has been handed over to the forensic doctor. I believe there will be a detailed forensic report soon. At that time, we should be able to know who killed Jax.”
They would know?
Thomas did not think so.
If they were deliberately framed and blamed, then the murderer must have thought of a strategy from the beginning. It was impossible to find the murderer easily.
Pisces asked, “Commander, do you think there’s a problem with this?”
Of course, there was a problem. It was a big problem as well.
Thomas took a deep breath and said, “I’m afraid that this is another curveball Dragon Head just threw at us.”
