You may experience a variety of emotions. You may be:
Upset and disturbed that you cannot go into your house for several days;
Stressed by the disruption in your family life and by the intrusiveness of the investigation;
Anxious to help out the police in any way you can;
Frustrated and impatient that the investigation is taking so long;
Grateful that the police are being so careful and thorough in looking for evidence;
Hopeful that the police will find enough evidence to identify a suspect and arrest him or her;
Shocked and confused that you or another family member may be considered as a suspect;
Angry about disparaging comments that may be made about your loved one and his or her activities.
