This is just wrong on so many levels that I had to point it out.
The SF Chronicle is reporting that the upper half of a woman’s body turned up in a sewage plant in Los Angeles Monday.
The report notes with a straight face that “investigators believe her lower half turned up two days earlier”. Seriously? Good to know that there aren’t so many half-bodies turning up that they can’t make the connection between any given pair.
The article also notes that “One of the woman’s arms was still missing.” Have patience, guys, it’ll probably show up at yet another plant in a few days. Of course, it’s possible that she only had one arm. Either way, one hopes that the sewer workers will lend the police a hand in checking the remaining processing plants.
Unsurprisingly, the death is being investigated as a homicide. After all, as sheriff Mike Rosson said, “People don’t just fall into a manhole cover.” No, Mike, they don’t. But they do just fall into a manhole. Sigh.
