We discover the victim in a mediocre Thai food joint.
Could the removed picture be of our victim? Did “they” not want us to know who he was, to never know if his existence?
Is this a meta-murder, not only of the person, but also of all the stories which comprised his identity in society?
Cause of death: a plastic fork to the forehead. We assume from the angle of the strike that the killer is right-handed. We also assume the killer either had personal motives or really, really hated soy-centric thai food. The victim: still smiling. Was this someone he knew? Someone that he trusted? He was still warm when we found him.
