THE STRANGE CASE OF THE DEAD MAN



THE STRANGE CASE OF THE DEAD MAN by RICK HAYNES


“All rise.”


A nod from the judge and the usher continued.


“Please be seated.”


"Thank you. You may now call your first witness, Mr Collins.”


“My lord, I call the forensic pathologist to the stand.”


“I swear by almighty God that my evidence to the court and the jury shall be the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.”


“Now Mr James I need to ask you some questions about the deceased. Did you carry out the autopsy?”


“I did.”


“Did you check for a pulse before you performed the autopsy?”


“No.”


“Did you check for blood pressure?”


“No.”


“Did you check for any sign of breathing?”


“No.”


“Is it therefore possible for the patient to be alive when you began the autopsy?”


“No.”


“How can you be so sure?”


“Because his brain was sitting in a jar on my desk.”
