Excerpt from Devil’s in the Details- Reboot:
The Red Vice
Blood filtered away from the body quickly as if running away from something it was scared of. It oozed out of the orifices in concise pattern with the floor in was spreading across. In death the body was turning paler as it lay there surrounded in its own life force, as it began to slowly congeal sealing the body to the ground beneath. It was not even an hour before, the horror and loss of life took place, the soul was still inside, and the lungs still breathed air.
The bloody torso with only a head left attached almost stuck fully to the floor before the cops who were called to the subway station got there. When the forensics team showed up, they bagged and tagged all they could, which wasn’t much. Lead Investigator James Holland stood a few feet away staring at the remains as if they would give off some hidden clue. He zoned out, closed his eyes, and meditated the world away. All he saw before his vision was the color red. All he heard was the victim screaming. He wanted to know why. What’s the M.O. of the killer? Why here, why now?
The investigator opened his eyes and closed in on the body again, staring down at her, scouring every inch of her blood soaked body for something. He looked at the cuts, how the killer dismantled her limbs. The cuts weren’t clean, it took time to hack off her arms and legs. He tortured her, doing it that way.
As the M.E. and coroner came to get the body to take it to the lab, Holland saw something embedded in the one of the stumps where her legs had been. One shining shard of metal, to him it looked like the teeth broken off from a good old fashioned hand saw. After the item was bagged and tagged, most of the team had taken leave of the subway station. The investigator stuck around, his head pouring, reeling with possible reasoning, motives, serial killers, and everything else he could think of to solve the case.
