Handgun and  Ammunition

Evidence doesn't lie

Client requested our assistance for a criminal defense case.  Subject had a court appointed attorney and we were able to get the court to pay for the cost to hire our team. Subject was adamant that he did not have a gun and did not kill anyone.  Our evidence found that the subject did have a gun. Once the evidence was gathered, our detective discussed the case with the court appointed attorney.  When the subject was approached with all evidence he admitted having a gun.  The attorney was able to utilize this for a guilty plea but prove the action was in self defense. Subject was sentenced to 15 years, however we believe with good behavior and time served he will be released within 5 years.

FOUND - missing person

Client hired us to find her fiance who was missing. He had been out drinking the night before and always comes home, however this time he did not. He had been missing over a week and unfortunately the police were not helping.  Our detects followed the trail of evidence which put him walking along the highway, midday, in a Texas summer, without water and dehydrated from being intoxicated the night before. Our detectives feared for the worst and believed he may have died of exhaustion out there.
