Summer 1962 – Seeking a Proper Fit


Moffett took four photographs out of the file and laid them on the desk before me. Each showed a decomposing human head. Each of them lacked a body below their neck stumps. Given the ragged state of those stumps my guess was that the heads had been pulled, rather than cut, from those missing bodies. 

Moffett said, “We’ve had one a month since March. My men did not get a photo of the April head. A badger had got at it and we only recovered the jaw bone and parts of the skull.”
