1. What were the main challenges facing investigators who were collecting evidence in the case? Give specific examples of these challenges.

Investigators used the hairs from the known victim as a control and compared it to the unknown hairs found in the various rooms. Each sample matched one of the victims and lead to investigators to set up a crime scene.
