in chapter 8 why do Pooles and Utterson surmise that jekyll didnt leave by the back door?

They surmise that he could not have used the back door because it was still locked and hadn't been used in a long time.
"Or he may have fled," said Utterson, and he turned to examine the door in the by-street. It was locked; and lying near by on the flags, they found the key, already stained with rust."
