He unlocked the basement door, having acquired a spare key to the house from the victim’s sister. He descended the creaky stairs, banishing the darkness with a flick of the light switch.

The cover was up and there was a scoop of laundry detergent waiting to be added. It seemed the victim was interrupted.
