Rob was running late and at sometime in the morning calls Jennifer. Rob just got her voicemail, it is unclear if this call went straight to voicemail or rang until it went to voicemail.

“Jennifer always woke up before me. She had to go to work before I did… she every day would either call me just to say, Good morning, Have a great day, or just text me to wish me to, you know, have a great day, Love you, that type of thing. And when I didn’t receive it Tuesday morning, I thought it was odd, but I was running a little late for work, so I called her on the way into work and just (got) her voice- mail.”
