He should lawyer up, keep quiet, and see what happens.
Making public statements is a horrible idea as well.
Well that's because its looking likely that he's not 100% in the clear, at least in some regards, if not down right guilty of murder.
Are you suggesting that if the police showed up at my door asking questions about a neighbor's house being broken into, and I know I didn't do it, can produce an alibi that I should stonewall the police even if I have a clue or two that could be helpful???
