The correct word is meandering. It means 'proceeding in a convoluted or undirected fashion.'
All other options are similar to the word organized.

The use of phrase but in the question implies the answer must be the word that contradicts the meaning of organized (ordered).
Timely, Consistent and Systematic implies same behavior as organized. 

Hence the answer has to be meandering (ANS)

The answer should be "timely" since evidences fade away with time. Even the TV shows / detective series also portray the need for timely investigation although they stress upon a systematic and organised investigation.
