We received a call from a family in Oakland.
They explained to us that their grandfather was murdered in his home over the weekend. The grandfather was an elderly man who lived with them and their three children. Everyone but the grandfather had taken a weekend getaway trip and when they returned is when they discovered the grandfather deceased. Apparently it was a robbery gone wrong which resulted in a death.
The family called law enforcement first of course and when the police arrived they investigated and came to the conclusion that the robbers had thought the house was clear of humans when they came to rob the area. They concluded that the elder man was shot from behind in his kitchen and had no chance for survival in this unfortunate murder.
Once the police and the coroner complete their jobs and removed the body, the family called us at Advanced Bio Treatment for assistance to finish the job. They made it clear that they wanted the house cleaned as soon as possible. The family was grieving and had a difficult time coping with such a shocking and unexpected death.
Advanced Bio Treatment understands the emotions involved in such a tragic loss.
We will assist in working with your insurance company and funeral arrangements. We will always respect the family’s privacy and concerns, especially in such a horrific circumstance.
When we arrived at the home and met with the family they took us to where the murder happened. It was as we expected to see. There was a huge amount of dried blood on the tile floors and in the grout. The appliances and cabinets were splattered with blood also. You could tell where he collapsed and was bleeding out because when we removed the oven to clean and disinfect underneath the puddle of blood had seeped underneath.
It took hours of disinfecting and deodorizing the kitchen. We follow strict professional guidelines when disposing of biohazardous waste. Advanced Bio Treatment always uses professional equipment and professionally trained individuals.
