Knowledge is still power – part 2

A recent case involved a rural surveillance. Conversations at the courthouse with an appraiser and a town local revealed that the Subject was very reclusive and was rarely seen in town. The Subject’s mother was in poor health and it was believed the Subject was caring for her. The Subject was last seen at an auction. The Subjects father would not allow anyone on the property including the county appraiser who was run off the property with a gun. The Subject’s farm is run poorly and is disorganized. The Subject has a brother who lives in a neighboring state and is married. The Subjects cousin lives in the area and we know his name and phone number. We know who owns the neighboring properties of the Subject. With all this information you can better access what type of individual you are dealing with and the next step in the case. This information can also be used to develop more information and leads to give you the upper hand. Kansas City detective – Jeff J. McDonald

Knowledge is power – Get it

For you to make better decisions regarding claims and settlements you need all the information at your disposal. Knowing your Subject can give you the upper hand. What does he/she do? What are their activities, sports, habits and places they frequent? Are they the reclusive type or outgoing and active? Are they involved in the community?Do they own and ride a motorcycle? Do they own other property? Do they cut wood, hunt mushrooms? This is all pivotal information when negotiating a case or determining investigative strategies going forward. You want the upper hand it’s more fun that way.
