    “…found the dead body of a man…” – English is a funny language, sometimes. Wouldn’t “…found a dead man…” be easier? I guess it’s that “leagalese” that cops and government mouthpieces try to speak when attempting to sound “official” and all.

    South and BTDT: New concept, possibly suicide, which is why they called it “suspicious”. They are doing their job!

        Thought of another way to look at this. Did you wake up this morning with a bullet hole in you? No? Then no matter HOW it got there, wouldn’t it be suspicious, unless everyone is waking up with bullets in them and this is the new norm???
