Can you figure it out in 9 clues?
Sasha Konstantinov’s home in Greenwich, Connecticut was broken into while he was away on a business trip.
His son, Mikhail, is the only other person who lives in the house.
Mikhail had large gambling debts. His father gave him no money, besides letting him live in the house for free.
Police found a broken window on the back door.
Although the house had a security system, no alarms went off that day.
Georges Fontaine arrived in Greenwich the same day that Sasha left. He had a ticket to leave the day after the robbery.
He refused to tell police why he came to Greenwich.
Georges has never been caught because of his careful planning and skill in disabling security systems.
When the police questioned Mikhail, he said, “Look at all this broken glass on the snow out here! Why would I break the door when I could just open it with a key?”
