Just because something is freely accessible, doesn’t mean it’s ok to copy it and use it for commercial gain. If I go into an exhibition, museum or gallery which is free and open to the public, it may be possible to take photos. If I then go and use those photos to print and flog on T-shirts, posters etc., that’s not right.

If the perp had the victim’s phone, he probably had access to the victim’s email too. So perfectly feasible that he had the detective’s email address if the detective had been emailing the victim.

Maybe he was reading their emails and felt guilty? Replied to the wrong message? Copied the wrong address down? Autocomplete error?

Why not try...

Guinea Pigs. Forget goats, sheep, rabbits etc. Guinea Pigs will give a nice even cut and fertilise at the same time.
