Nuffin to see here guvnor

The handless corpse case is all very scandalous and dramatic. And guess what - the coppers called me about it! I didn't have anything to tell them unfortunately. The rest of my family were around Owhiro Bay on the night in question (see how au fait I am with the parlance of the plods), but I don't think they're going to have any information either.

Fantastic! You're "helping the police with enquiries".

Tom said...

Police are taking a hands-off approach to the investigation.

Aha!
The bloodsoaked shower photo suddenly makes sense...

ya done got me fair and proper.

You'll never find the hands though.

Or the motive. Or the teleporter I used to get there.

"You'll never find the hands though."

That's not them mysteriously hovering behind your boy's head as he blows out his candles, then?

Oh, and thanks for the link!

Dear God! I go buy you a set of carbon steel kitchen knives and a sharepener and you go and do this!

Next time, all you get is a potato peeler young lady!

Classic line from the paper re the foot found near Foxton
"Police are stumped..."

lol.

Tom said...

I liked the comment about the handless corpse and the corpseless foot: "police think the two are unrelated". But what if the poor victim was a mutant with feet for hands? Did they think of that?

Anyway, now we all know that the victim was a dodgy property developer with possible gang connections. Really? Who'd have thought?

And did he have to hand back the regulation-issue moustache when he got kicked out of the fire service?

Martha said...

You all make me laugh, but I hope the poor fellows relatives never stumble across all this irreverence...

Crikey.

Mutant, he he he

They'll never lay a hand on you

Martha said...

Well, hot off the press for you Bob, they've arrested a 21 year old for the murder. He was known to the deceased.

I'm quite relieved, I was beginning to suspect my husband.

Frontier Editor said...

But what if your husband framed said 21-year old?

(Insert psychologically-disturbing soundtrack here)

Or in a lighter vein, sounds like the little nitwit allegedly needed to learn from the Vietnamese gangs that operated in northern Virginia when I lived there (and still do, despite the complete and total lack of conenction between me and them) who always cut off the hands, feet and head of their victims to make it just that little bit harder for the local gendarmarie to ID the corpse.

Nothing like an amateur murderer to ruin a good criminal investigation.
