When the police inspected the house, they found a letter in Malayalam which read, “The next time you leave your house, keep money and gold for me. Otherwise, I will break in here again. You can lock the house, you can lock the door.”

The house also seemed like it has been inhabited by somebody for the past few days. Fingerprints from the house later revealed that the suspect to be Jose.
