Marcus and Jackson discovered a body while out for a day of fishing.
They had just gotten back to the parking lot and as they were loading their gear in the trunk they saw her next to the club house pool near a wooded area.
The police arrived and started their investigation, thinking she must have drowned while swimming, however, they discovered dark marks on her wrists and there were pieces of tree bark clinging to her bathing suit.
Marcus and Jackson were the only ones there since it was late in the afternoon and everyone had left the clubhouse.
After questioning them, the police arrested Jackson after finding the same type of tree bark sticking on Jackson’s pants cuff as the woman had on her bathing suit and he had fresh scratches on the side of his face.
After being pressured for an explanation from Marcus he confessed to the murder, and told him he had killed her when he went back to the truck for something and ran into her, they ended up getting in a heated conversation, he lost his temper, grabbed her, she scratched him and he smothered her screams with his hands until she went limp, then he left her by the pool, knowing no one had seem them.
