The Food Surgeon Performs a Delicate Autopsy on a Tortured Shallot

The Food Surgeon once again returned to the morgue in order to perform an autopsy on an unfortunate shallot who appeared to be the intended victim of foul play.

Surgeon’s notes:

0:15 – Another John Doe? sigh. I’m getting too old for this.
0:40 – Cadaver approx 2.5″-3.5″ wide.
0:52 – Cadaver approx 3.0″ long.
1:42 – Three razor blades found shallowly embedded in John Doe’s abdomen. Appear to have been used as a form of torture, as wounds do not appear to be the cause of death. Will dust blades for prints.
2:26 – I’ve seen this before; Thoracic impalement via a metal nail, approx 1’5″ long, appears to be the cause of death. We either have a serial killer on our hands, or this is a copycat killer.
4:06 – Cadaver would probably tatse good caramelized.
4:35 – Homicide.
