Robert pointed out that he hadn't mentioned the woods... but instead of confessing she was framing him, Michelle kept her lies up and covered her tracks.

The plot then thickened when the police questioned Robert at the station and revealed Vicky's house had not only been deep cleaned, but that a fragment of vase with Vicky's blood on it had been found in his van.
