Inspectors are always playing “detective.”
In fact, in some countries detectives are known as “inspectors.”
We know the usual suspects.
Every home has the usual suspects. They are not always guilty, but we have to check them out none the less. We never want to discover that some crime has been missed—only to grow into a serial crime spree of untold proportions.
There are the nasty stains on the ceiling that have to be questioned.
We routinely use expensive devices to check around toilets and along shower stalls and tubs. It is very common for crimes to be committed in these areas.
Where chimneys penetrate the roof and ceiling are other areas that need to be checked.
Sometimes the perpetrator is guilty as charged; sometimes it is some past condition where the perpetrator has been “rehabilitated” and perhaps moved on to “greener” pastures in other jurisdictions.
But there seems to be no shortage.
What is really nice is when the perpetrator just steps right up and “confesses.”
