The police received a call about a suspicious-looking trash bag sitting atop a snow bank created when the snowplow cleared a narrow road after an early spring snowstorm blanketed the city under a foot of heavy, white snow.
The desk sergeant ordered Hector to immediately investigate the complaint. Hector reluctantly bundled up and headed to the designated location. He found the large, black trash bag and walked over to it. He tried lifting it, but it was quite heavy. He noticed a dark red liquid oozing from the bag, so he looked inside. It was filled with human body parts.
