Crime scene

By Posted on 0 No tags 0

It was Friday evening, the night was cold and wet but the rain had stopped. When Joe Brain finally arrived on the crime scene, the body of a young man was lying across the soaked floor. The emergency medical rescue team had been trying cardiopulmonary resuscitation on him but to no avail, he could not be revived. The victim was examined by paramedics and pronounced dead at 19:22.
A police officer immediately started securing the crime scene by setting up a yellow cordon tape to keep curious onlookers out. Another police officer drew a line of chalk around the body.
A small crowd of onlookers had gathered and watched as forensic investigators in white gloves collected physical evidence like fibres from clothing, hair, footprints, tire tracks and any signs of struggle. A photographer was also there, he was clicking photos of each piece of evidence as well as pictures of the whole scene including the positioning of the body from different angles. After they finished, one of the paramedics took a white sheet and placed it over the dead body.
“Does anybody know who this guy is?” one of the investigators asked.
“His name was Motivation. He used to come here often,” someone said. The investigator turned to him.
“What’s your name?”
“Liver. John Liver.”
The investigator called him aside and started asking him some questions and noted down the answers in a pad.
A guy next to Joe Brain nudged him at the elbow and asked, “Are you some sort of detective?”
“Yes, I am Joe Brain. And you?”
“Mark Kidney. They call me Kid around here. You know it’s not the first time that something like this has happened.”
“What do you mean?” Joe Brain asked.
“We lost Enthusiasm too earlier in the year. After that Creativity also passed away. Now Motivation too is gone.”
Joe turned to the guy and asked: “What’s this place called?”
“Room for Improvement. It’s a club run by a guy called Perfection.”
