Heads or Tails

Posted in The Job - General by 200

If I were a  detective in Hertfordshire at the moment, I’d be making some strong contacts in the media. The current mystery unfolding in the leafy lanes of the county is a stone bonker for a two-part murder-mystery on a Sunday night on the BBC; these programmes don’t technically consult themselves.

It’s getting so you can’t take your dog for a countryside walk without stumbling across a bag full of discarded body  parts.

Yesterday, a torso turned up, a few days ago a leg surfaced & a few weeks ago the first leg was found. A head was discovered some distance away in Leicestershire.

I don’t know much about murder investigations; I’ve never been a detective (I don’t drink enough) but I bet there is a sweepstake running in the incident room on which part will turn up next.

Wherever the next part is discovered, I bet the arsehole turns up in the Home Office.

    The arsehole has already “turned-up” in the home office.
    It must be the only occasion where a body has an arsehole of a different sex.

    Still laughing….

    We had a body parts mystery the other week. Someone ‘left’ a box with a heart and lungs in it at a local hostelry…It took the hospital over 24 hours to find out that they were porcine, and not human. I did say at the time that a vet would be a better bet. Can’t walk past the place without asking if they have any tripe and onions.
