Police also indicated that it was Doreen who reported the murder while pretending to know nothing about it. However, police became suspicious and checked her phone records, which first led to Clara and then to the four assassins.

Police said the confessions also revealed that Doreen knew her husband, who was a moneylender, exploited his female clients who could not pay their loans. Police said further investigations are ongoing, they are treating this as the motive for the murder.
