!! This post contains photos and descriptions of dead animals, skinned
animals, decomposition, maggots, and the general gory details involved
with cleaning up bones.
I’ve gotten a couple asks about the methods I use to clean bones,
so I thought I’d put together a quick summary of the journey of my
female Badger, Ridge, from road to shelf. It’s not really a tutorial,
but I have almost kind of written it like one - keep in mind this is just
Ridge’s personal cleanup journey, and all the steps she went through while being processed
(it’s pretty similar for all my roadkill though) It’s a bit garbled and I haven’t really clarified anything… Hm. Maybe I will put together a proper tutorial in the future. For now, this is Ridge~
So to clarify my earlier posts, we got another message. A third photo. This time it was someone I recognised but Sherlock didn’t have a clue who she was. It’s nice to occasionally be the clever one. The picture was of the recently deceased Connie Prince. Apparently, she’d died as a result of a tetanus infection but clearly our killer was suggesting otherwise. Again, we received a phone call, after receiving the picture.
This time it was an old woman - and she was blind. I mean, who would do that? How could anyone do that?! What sick mind -
I went along to visit Connie’s brother, Kenny. Sherlock went onto some internet forums and, with his usual tact and diplomacy, got answers that way. Between us, we worked out that while Connie’s death had been made to look like the result of a tetanus infection, it had actually been caused by poison - their houseboy, Raoul de Santos, had overdosed her on Botox! He did the injections himself and has been slowly poisoning her! So, another case cracked. Sherlock is posting another message on his blog to let the killer know that we’ve solved it. Let’s hope we can keep this up.
I haven’t been very active on here lately due to stress and stuff, so this milestone completely went over my head. This blog will continue to run on queues until further notice, but I hope you’ll enjoy your stay nonetheless. Couldn’t think of a clever picture to add so, here’s me last year, doing my best impression of captain sunflower. Anyway thanks!
