Who Killed Shamari?
Shamari was a 20-year-old college freshman who was majoring in Physical Therapy. She paid for school by working as a personal trainer at a local gym. Shamari had been promoted to head personal trainer at the gym just before she was killed.
The body was found in the women’s locker room of the gym at 1 am by the night janitor, Willis . The victim had been strangled and was wearing a robe. There were signs of a struggle in the room and the glass door of the shower was broken and had traces of blood on it. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene and the coroner suggested that the time of death was at least 3 hours before the body was found.
Shamari’s co-worker Jones told police that Shamari was a newer employee who did not deserve her recent promotion and only got it because she spent a lot of time with their boss, Steve . When asked if he knew if Shamari had problems at work, Steve told Police that Shamari had complained to him that one of her fitness clients, Mike , kept asking her out and wouldn’t take no for an answer.
