The crime scene was mainly the car,
with the victim slumped in the backseat,
emotions did not go far,
the body looked like unpackaged meat,
her skirt and bra hiked up to display
a chest and stomach marked by a dozen
or more vertical stab wounds,
the police could feel the heat,
and on the floor of the backseat,
the killer had dumped the contents
of the victim’s purse,
indicating an apparent robbery,
her ghost would curse,
beyond that, there was no physical evidence
in the car,
no fingerprints, no fibers, no hairs,
just exploding emotions, and fears,
no witnesses and no tears.

The gatherers just stood around and watched the young woman suffering as their brains were being pickled by stupidity.
