dA Morgue. I.D. Tag.


DA. Morgue ID. Toe Tag-

The Ghost Who Walks. [Well, the Cat, at least.]

This was made for the Toe Tag Contest on dA-Morgue, Contest Details, hosted by dA Morgue.

Due Date: July 3rd, 2017


This reminded me of the opening scene, in the morgue, from “Sunset Boulevard”, which was cut, after previews.

In the cut scene, the camera pans on the toe tags in the morgue, while the residents describe how they got there, with voice-overs.


Case Synopsis:

On April 13th, at 16:42 hours, EDT, Campus Security reported a Post-Grad student was exhibiting symptoms of Anaphylaxis, from exposure to chemical pesticides.

After going for help, there was an explosion, which was later ruled an accident, caused by a build-up of Natural Gas, from a leak, in the maintenance tunnels, under the campus.

Reportedly two people were in the building at the time, the subject and Dr. Alexander.

After the explosion, next to college’s Slow-Poke Reactor, neither could be found.

The NNSC [National Nuclear Safety Commission] investigated; and, cleared the site.

The case remains open as there were insufficient remains to make a positive I.D.

Authorities have been directed to contact the NNSC and Coroner’s Office, immediately, and consider any remains an extreme Bio-Hazard and possible Radiation risk, if recovered.

Excerpts from File:

The file is incomplete, with missing attachments. Some material is illegible [or, redacted].

The only image attached to the file of the subject is a grainy frame from a campus security camera.

Attention: If found consider extreme BIO-HAZARD and contact CORONER’S Office- IMMEDIATELY !

Oh, bother, since this is an alternate universe, I should have given myself a doctorate.

A friend’s neighbour passed away. They didn’t find her remains for a week, or two.
That is horrifying.

My Mum was always fascinated by forensics, both professionally and personally.

On the plus side, I do already have a headstone. [Long story]

I thought it would be clearer, if the letters, etched in the stone, were painted in black.
But, my brother disagreed. And, as he said, I won't have to look at it.

So, there you go.
