Go to the back left side of the house and inspect the red flag marker near where two guys are standing taking a smoking break (next to a pile of flammable wood I might add..) Correct piece is the bottom piece.
Clue 7/11: Broken Wood
Now run for you life. You can't just flat out outrun the bulldozer, and this may take a few attempts but the quickest way to end it is to jump up on the first larger platform (3rd obstacle) and turn around and shoot the guy. Took me about 3 tries to get it timed right.
After that's over go to the telephone to get the next location.
Location: Keystone Film Studios
Talk with the security guard when you arrive. He will leave for lunch, so hop the fence to gain access. Take your first right, go past the horse and take a right again, then take a final right so that you see a bunch of piles of lumber . For the first clue check the short stack of lumber near the far fence and on the right. For the next clue check the stack opposite of that.
Clue 8/11: Lumber Delivery Receipt

Now go back around the building and enter the screening room. Check the table directly to the right as you enter. Then open up the machine box and start the film for a puzzle.

Top Dial - Center
Bottom Dial - One spot left of Center
Flip the switch at the bottom and proceed to watch the film.
Clue 11/11: Film
Obtained by completing the puzzle.
Leave the room, hop the fence and use the phone in the security hut.
Location: The Blue Room
A short cutscene will be shown. Afterwards you'll receive a new location.
Location: Elysian Fields Site Two
During the cutscene you notice a flickering light across the street. Go investigate, in the building and up the stairs to trigger the next scene. No matter how much you fight back, you will get whooped in the end and stuffed in a trunk.
After you break free find the closest vehicle and drive. Now you must escape your pursuers. I found it fairly easy because I cut through some gas station parking lot took a hard left into an alley, no worries if you don't lose them immediately there's plenty of alleys in between and eventually you will lose them.
You arrive at Elsa's apartment and after a cutscene case closes, 5 stars.
