One – Missing Body Parts

“Park here Detective. Forensics hasn’t arrived yet,” mumbled the young patrolman while choking on his words. His face was white, his stomach churned and his hands were shaking. “I’ve never seen anything like this before… body’s over there.”

Andrew Blake got out of his car and looked toward the mutilated body about fifty feet away. He squinted at the gruesome scene, took a long breath, looked around and lit a cigarette.

“Who found him?”

“Man and a woman out for a run. They saw the body from that path up there. Hay, I thought you quit smoking Detective!”

Blake sucked another puff of smoke deep into his lungs. “Yeah – Right! That lasted about a week. How long before forensics gets here?”

“Should be any minute now.” He gasped. “I’ll be right back. Don’t let anyone––” He suddenly bolted toward the nearest tree and vomited. Blake shook his head, pulled a box of tissues from the car’s console and gave them to the patrolman.

“Sorry… I just––”

“Forget about it. It happens sometimes. Here, wipe yourself off.”

“You won’t say anything to––”

“Never happened, didn’t see a thing.”

By the next day, Blake had a very thin file folder on his desk. Unidentified Caucasian male approximately 60 years old… followed by the usual statistics and only one unusual comment. Head, hands and feet not recovered. He scanned the entries and threw the file into his, “need more information” pile before getting another cup of coffee.

To be continued…
