We have come thus far in the inquest on the unfortunate demise of Teoh Beng Hock.
While it is an open process with every detail carried by the media and profoundly scrutinized and analyzed by so-po blogosphere, nevertheless things are not about to look bright at the end of the tunnel.
However, one question that needs to be answered, no matter how innocuous or insignificant it may sound is why Teoh quarelled with Tan Boon Wah in the MACC toilet in the wee hours of that fateful morning?
Detractors may say it could have been some minor indifferences. It could have been a conflict of opinion over what Teoh should have opened up and revealed to the MACC officials, or a quarrel about how far Teoh resented being dragged into the muck that was DAP and having to be made the scapegoat and 'trustee' of devious schemes.
Then again, going by the revelations to date, the tiff in the toilet cannot just be brushed aside.
