    MOO ..... the "oh my God, oh my God" from DS in the background of the 911 call seems to come just a tad too late in the piece for my liking, and the "Nick! Nick!, "Nick!" ..... bit too late also. H'mm.
    I feel like I hear the name "Scott" at the very start of the call, and said twice in the background .... will type up what I hear later when I have some free time. Like you, @UnderWhelmed405, I'd be interested to hear what you're all hearing in the background of the call.

    WOW !! that was heartbreaking to listen to .
    Then it shows one of the POI just casually walking into the gas station.
    How can someone just look so calm and casual after killing someone??
    Plus-- the video capture of him is very, very clear.
    Surely, somebody knows who he is.

    As soon as I read that Nick's company worked with a Home Warranty business, my thought was a disgruntled customer.

    I interviewed years ago for a home warranty company.
    I was there in the small office for almost 2 hours as the first manager that interviewed me wanted her supervisor to interview me as she wanted to hire me right then, so I waited around for him to return to the office.

    While waiting for her supervisor, I could hear everything and a few employees were on phone calls, scheduling appointments.
    The other 8 employees were on calls **and EVERY SINGLE ONE WAS A COMPLAINT CALL**
    They told me I would need to have thick skin and be able to let insults, complaints, etc bounce off, not to take it personally, yada, yada.
    Then they offered me the job, for LESS money than what I was making at the job I already had at that time and no health benefits.
    I said, NO thank you. (this is Home warranty business, not a heating and Air business*)

    So, while reading the BBB complaint posted earlier and seeing that the home warranty business is involved, this could be one scenario and potential POI.

    I am sure LE is checking into every possible scenario and like you all here, I have a few different ones.

    Ok
    DS was a partner in the business with someone else.
    Nick then became Partner with DS in 2018 when the other person left the business back in 2018
    The business moved to a different location March 2019
    New document shows Nick removed and only DS as owner August 11 2020
    This info is from the business Corporation and I have saved each document as a PDF
    I am trying to get a timeline on following the business and the Money.

    So Nick no longer had a financial interest in the business. I wonder if he and his wife knew he was no longer on the documents. Very interesting. MOO

    That is really interesting so Nick was murdered May 27, 2020 and DS took complete control of the business in August if I am understanding this correctly. That would mean that this move leaves DS to get full benefit from the company and it leaves his wife and children with nothing. Plus, DS had the life insurance on Nick so I'm sure he got full benefit of that as well this is not looking good for his innocence in my opinion. He seems to be the one that had everything to gain from Nicks' death add that to the other facts like him being the only survivor of the attack, his shady business history in the past and it's starting to paint a really bad picture.

    Was the business incorporated? If Nick had shares, they would now be owned by his estate. The partner would have to buy them, which should be covered in a shareholders’ agreement. At my firm we have always had insurance on the partners to cover the payout upon death.

    So he should have shares, unless he was buying them out over time.

    Well that is good for his family they won't be left with nothing but if I am correct in my theory that DS was involved in this whole thing that leaves me fearful for the wife and kids.

    The company is LLC
    The Article of business only shows that Nick owned 20% or more member
    There are boxes to check on the form but it only shows (and checked) "ADD as 20% or more member."

    Nick was removed AFTER he died, removed just this month.
    The docs do not show the exact amount of shares he owned, only that it was 20% or more.
    I am still digging around :)

    IMO, DS also has other companies registered to him, one with another partner.
    Still digging :)

    I posted that I found it odd I could not find Nick's name on the SOS website. Nor was he licensed for HVAC, though I found two others who were and they tied back to the business name. So what you're saying makes sense, although that's not what his obit said?

    Where did you find that information?

    In California we call that Key Man Insurance.

    Since you have some experience with business formations, can you nose around and see if you can find the LLC? I usually don't have a problem location business records, but in this case I came up empty.

    She had filed for divorce and according to a court transcript (easily found online), her death was being investigated.

    Nick was removed after he was murdered. He was taken off the documents because he was deceased. This is common practice even when murder is not suspected.
