All of that could have been avoided. So we end up retracing his movements and trying to figure out how we could have done better. And we could have handled that part better.

That intrigues me too. It's miraculous that he got the body into his car and away from Thistle Street unobserved. It speaks to someone who can plan well and effectively, from a standing start, in circumstances of extreme and sudden stress.

And then he had all evening and all night to figure out what to do next. There were better ways of handling the trip to Argyll, but he almost seems to have been driving round in a flat panic. Maybe he simply went to pieces overnight.
