Through the process of elimination and the controller's 30-foot range, Ketsenburg zeroed in on the thief and, with the help of the 5th floor assistant, found the missing console in another student's dorm. After satisfying dorm officials that the console was indeed his by turning the system on with 'Detective Controller,' the Xbox 360 was returned. Missouri State officials said the thief has yet to return to his dorm since the incident but Ketsenburg promises that when he does he will be prosecuting with what we assume will be extreme prejudice.
