The trail.

“Time of death is estimated to be around one AM cause of death is unclear at the moment,” Larry said.

“The absence of a struggle, blood trail and appearance of the general area suggests the murder occurred in a different primary site. I want the site searched thoroughly,” Sergeant Lucas said.

“Any idea how the body ended up here?” Officer John asked taking a closer look at the body.

“It would appear to have been dropped from a height most likely the bridge; there are bruises on the impact areas along with cracked ribs. Most of the damage seems to have occurred post-mortem though,” Larry replied.

“Who placed the nine-one-one call,” the Sgt asked

“Lady in the running outfit over by the patrol car, stumbled upon it on her run,” Officer John replied

“Try to clear the scene as soon as possible, the senator won’t like having us in his neighborhood for long,” the Sgt. said turning to leave.

Something about the site taunted his every step.
