Hi teachers,
I don’t know, Marta said. You’re the policeman. You go and find the murderer. But I can tell you one thing. You can begin with the new President. He’s got a murderer’s face.

1. Where did Marta believe Felix should start his search for the murderer?
With the new President. / He should start it with the new President.

2. How did Marta believe Felix should start his search for the murderer?
With the new president.

I would say "With whom did Marta believe ..." She's not suggesting he start with a place, but with a person.

2. How did Marta believe Felix should start his search for the murderer?
No
See above.
