The only 4 people who had a key to the room were questioned.

Dorothy the maid: “I came to wake up Mr. Bond; I opened the door and I screamed as I saw him dead on the floor” 

Tom the butler: “When I heard what happened, I quickly ran into the room, flicked the light  switch to turn it on, and saw Mr. Bond with a knife sticking out of his neck.”

Laticia the governess: “I rushed up alongside Tom the butler; and when he turned on the light, the room was all bloody with Mr Bond on the floor.”

Jack the chef: “I was prepping breakfast and didn’t see anything or hear anything as I was pumping tunes!”
