Apart from the quantities of blood at the house, whoever attacked Suzanne had been very careful. Robbie knew what the old adage said. Wherever you go and whatever you touch, you leave a trace. Well, Suzanne’s assailant seemed to have blown that hypothesis out of the window.

if you blow a hypothesis out of the window, you prove the hypothesis is invalid, right?

Thank you.
