leave a comment »

Harry Balke III was the lead crime scene investigator at the Lee County Sheriff’s Office.

He arrived just after 8 a.m. December 27, 2005. He also called Gabi Suboch, a crime scene technician, to respond to the scene.

First they documented the exterior of the scene.

State’s exhibit 17 is a photo of the door to the pool cage, taken from outside.

Balke is showing the screen door in the foreground and another in the background (two screen doors to the pool cage). The one in the background was unlocked.

Exhibit 18 -photo of sliding glass doors, taken from the exterior of the home.

After processing the exterior of the home, they began processing the interior of the home.

He didn’t notice anything out of place or signs there was a struggle (except for Lukasz’ bowling pins were knocked down).

Many items of value were on the first floor and they had been untouched.

State’s exhibit 19 is a floor plan of the Andrews house. It was generated by one of the crime scene technicians.
