The Lincoln Lawyer season 1 – who killed Laura Elliott and Jan Rilz?
Of course, Trevor did it! He’s a toxic, controlling male who cut Laura off from her friends. He made up a story about taking a loan from his roommate’s father, who killed his wife and love so she would not divorce him and take half the company. They are protecting their investment, he tells his lawyer, Mickey Haller.
Why did Trevor Elliott kill Laura Elliott and Jan Rilz?
Simple, money and power. While Trevor put the company together, the real genius coder was his wife, Laura. She was the one who could prove she made the small piece of code that took their company, Parralax, to the next level. It spawned into a billion-dollar corporation. When Trevor found out Laura was communicating with her former friend and legal expert, Sonia, Trevor was afraid Laura would seek her advice and take everything he had worked for. If Laura could prove the code was hers, she could get everything.
But how did Trevor get rid of the evidence? Including the gun and the bloody clothes? The police search his entire property, car, and surrounding areas. Trevor had a plan for that too. He had his drone fly out the evidence to sea. It is probably sitting on the bottom of the pacific ocean.
