17 hours to discover the body is not a far stretch given the outsourcing of cleaning staff and the high disgruntle rate going on throughout CX right now given all the cutbacks. Add to that the crew searching for items as crazy as a pen and you're going to have labor problems.

Some have eluded to an assassination plot.
