It all started with the decapitated head. The rest of his body remains missing as with any evidence to implicate a blame for the murder case. Neighbors heard some commotion around midnight, husband yelling, few dishes dropping and then, silence.
Next morning, the wife was three miles out-of-town; face down in a shallow ditch, unconscious. The police report states she remembers nothing except a loud male shouting into her face “Where did you sleep last night…where?”
Ten years have passed and no one seems to care except the one person constantly shivering because the sun never seems to shine.
