Detective Cauldwell looked at the police photos of the footprints in the snow. They appeared to lead from the street to the mailbox, onto the porch, then into the house and back again, straight to the road.

But the spare key was still in the mailbox. How could that be if the tracks didn't go the mailbox a second time so the intruder could replace it?

Link's nurse, Mrs. Mayfield, killed him for her inheritance. Then she walked from the house to the road and back again, stopping at the mailbox, making it appear an outsider had entered the house and killed Link.
