Jack was spotted acting strangely and wore only one shoe, which was shown on CCTV at the same time his neighbour spotted a supposed break-in at Jack's home. Smoke bombs had also been let off at a property across the street, where Jack's phone had been found.

Another person replied: "After he lost his phone, he had a manic episode and started breaking things including dishes and he stepped on some glass. I guarantee that was his own footprint in the comet. He then went to the drugstore [for] something to treat his cut foot."

Why was Jack Wheeler murdered?

Others were quick to discuss Jack's strange taxi ride, with one tweeting: "Why is no one curious about the people who gave Jack a ride to the parking garage?! Like those would be some of the first people I would talk to." Another wrote: "I feel like the producers left out a lot of details on the Jack case, fingerprints in the house? The footprint? Interviews of the guys that gave him a ride."
