A Detailed Guide to Our Suicide Investigation Process

At Complete Corporate Services, our approach to suicide investigations is thorough, compassionate, and tailored to provide deeper insights than what is typically covered in a standard police investigation. We understand that families often seek more comprehensive answers and closure, which is why we delve into aspects that might be overlooked in a general inquiry.

Step 1: Initial Consultation and Case Assessment

  • Our process begins with a confidential and empathetic consultation with the family. We listen to your concerns, understand the background of the case, and assess the specific areas where you seek further clarity.
  • Unlike a police investigation that might be constrained by resources or specific legal parameters, we tailor our investigation to your unique needs and questions.

Step 2: In-depth Review of Police and Medical Reports

  • We meticulously review all existing reports, including police, medical, and autopsy documents. Our focus here is to identify any gaps or inconsistencies that might warrant further investigation.
  • Our private investigators have the advantage of time and focus to delve into details that might have been missed or deemed non-critical in a standard police investigation.

Step 3: Gathering Additional Evidence

  • We conduct our own evidence gathering, which may involve revisiting the scene, looking for overlooked clues, and examining personal belongings and digital footprints, such as social media and email.
  • This step often reveals new layers of information, offering insights into the victim's state of mind and circumstances leading up to the event.

Step 4: Conducting Interviews

  • A key component of our investigation is taking detailed statements from people close to the victim. This includes family, friends, coworkers, and acquaintances.
  • We approach these interviews with a level of depth and sensitivity that might not be typical in a police investigation. Our goal is to understand the victim's personal and emotional context, which can shed light on possible reasons behind their actions.

Step 5: Specialized Analysis

  • We employ specialized analysis techniques, including psychological profiling and behavioral analysis, to better understand the victim's mindset.
  • Our investigators also collaborate with experts in mental health, forensics, and other relevant fields to provide a more comprehensive analysis.

Step 6: Reviewing and Correlating Findings

  • All gathered information is reviewed and correlated to form a cohesive picture. This step often uncovers connections and insights that were not apparent initially.
  • Our thorough approach ensures that no stone is left unturned, offering families a more complete understanding of the circumstances.

Step 7: Reporting and Ongoing Support

  • We provide a detailed report of our findings, including any recommendations for further action or areas that might require more investigation.
  • Beyond the investigation, we offer ongoing support and referrals to counseling services, understanding that the healing process continues long after the investigation concludes.

At Complete Corporate Services, we recognize that each suicide investigation is unique. Our commitment is to provide the most thorough and compassionate service possible, filling in the gaps left by standard investigations and bringing much-needed answers to grieving families. Our approach at Complete Corporate Services is designed to go beyond the scope of a standard police investigation, offering families a more in-depth and personalized understanding of their loved one's suicide.

What happens if CCS uncover evidence that is contrary to the police's ruling of suicide?

If a private investigator from Complete Corporate Services uncovers evidence suggesting foul play in a case initially deemed a suicide, there are specific steps that can be taken to ensure an official investigation is conducted by the police. Here's an overview of the procedure:

1. Documenting the Evidence

  • The first and most crucial step is the meticulous documentation of all evidence suggesting foul play. This includes photographs, digital evidence, witness statements, and any other material that contradicts the initial ruling of suicide.
  • The documentation must be clear, concise, and unambiguous, maintaining a high standard of professionalism to be taken seriously by law enforcement authorities.

2. Legal Review and Compliance

  • Before proceeding, it's essential to review the evidence within the framework of legal protocols. Complete Corporate Services would typically consult with legal experts to ensure that the collection of evidence complies with legal standards and can be admissible in a legal context.
  • The investigator must also ensure that all methods used to gather evidence were legal and ethical, as any deviation could compromise the case.

3. Making a Formal Report to the Police

  • With the evidence compiled, the next step is to make a formal report to the police. This report should be detailed, including a comprehensive summary of the findings and how they contradict the initial conclusion of suicide.
  • The report should be submitted to the police department that initially handled the case, or to a higher authority if necessary.

4. Liaison and Collaboration with Law Enforcement

  • The private investigator would then act as a liaison, offering to collaborate with the police. This includes sharing insights, providing access to collected evidence, and assisting in any way that could facilitate the official investigation.
  • It's important to approach this step with a cooperative and supportive attitude, highlighting the common goal of uncovering the truth.

5. Ongoing Communication and Advocacy

  • Continuous communication with law enforcement is vital. The investigator should follow up regularly on the progress of the investigation, offering additional assistance or information if required.
  • If necessary, the investigator may also act as an advocate for the family, ensuring that the case receives the attention it deserves and is thoroughly investigated.

6. Involvement of Other Authorities if Needed

  • If the response from the local police is insufficient or if there are concerns about the impartiality of the investigation, the investigator might consider escalating the matter to higher authorities, such as state or federal law enforcement agencies.

7. Support for the Family

  • Throughout this process, Complete Corporate Services would continue to support the family, keeping them informed of developments and providing guidance on their options and rights.

In cases where evidence of foul play is uncovered, Complete Corporate Services is committed to ensuring that this evidence is brought to the attention of the appropriate authorities and that the case is re-examined with the seriousness and rigor it deserves. The goal is always to ensure justice and closure for the family.
