Noida, May 22 (UNI) Investigators, who have so far failed to find the motive behind the murder of teenager Aarushi Talwar and domestic help Hemraj, have now sought the help of a 13-yr-old school boy to crack the case.

Police have been questioning Aarushi's friend to recreate her profile. ''He spoke with her for over 680 minutes over the cellphone during the last 45 days,'' said a police official.

''We have not detained him...we are trying to find out about Aarushi's mental state , her nature, friends and fears,'' said a Special Task Force (STF) officer.

Meanwhile, at a press conference here today, police said that while they had several forensic evidence, the motive for the murders was baffling. ''It could be a result of property dispute, a love affair or even an honour killing,'' said SSP A Satish Ganesh.

He said it is possible that the killer had planned only one murder and the other killing was incidental.

''Aarushi's viscera has been sent to forensic lab in Agra to rule out the possibility of poisoning,'' he added.

The police had already questioned victim's parents and uncle.

The police claimed Aarushi's death took place around 0100 hrs to 0130 hrs, while the servant was killed much earlier.

Aarushi -- a class IX student of the Delhi Public School and daughter of a noted dentist Rajesh Talwar -- along with her servant Hemraj, was murdered at her residence in the posh Sector 25 on May 15.

Meanwhile, police have detained four people known to Talwars' servant Hemraj, who were being interrogated at an unknown place under Surajpur police station area by the sleuths of the STF probing the murder.
