“Hyuuga Ami, I’m here to see the coroner.” She made her way to the receptionist booth at the lobby of the building and looked around her. It had an air of a normal office building, much like that of the administration building where she usually went to pick up new missions. But this once was segregated into parts, with elevators going only to specific floors. Everyone who entered the building needed a badge of some kind. The receptionist would hand her a badge with her name and the floor which she was to meet with the coroner—the fifteenth floor. Clipping the badge to her dress, she thanked the woman and made her way to the elevators that stopped only at the first twenty floors. There were security cameras everywhere and guards stood by the lobby watching it like hawks. She imagined what it was like to work here.
“Ami, it’s nice to see you, come on in!” she was greeted at the elevator doors by a tall man in a business suit and a white lab coat over top it. He had slick black hair and dark blue eyes and was quite muscular in build. He was the head coroner, the man who was responsible for cutting up dead bodies to find out their stories before death. He led her into his office, a medium sized room with a good view of the village. Motioning her to one of his dark blue fabric sofa chairs, he would hand her a file. “So you’ve heard I think? This is John Doe number four.” Opening the folder, her eyes would meet the horrendous crime scene photos first. She took the photos out and looked at them carefully. The crime scene was definitely Sobek River and like the rest of the murders, the most defining part of the body was the large A that was painted across it. Turning her attention to the coroner, she was going to ask a question that had plagued her mind for awhile now. “Do we know anything about the red paint? It doesn’t look like it was made out of blood from the colour.” Ami put the folder down on the desk. “The paint is from the same manufacturer. We have tracked it down to just one company who makes this kind of paint. But most people who use paint tend to buy from this manufacturer.” Ami nodded her head, not having expected to gain any leads from the substance to begin with.
“We have looked at all the bodies carefully. The first two bodies had dozens of stab wounds made with different blades. We cross-examined the cuts and found that at least one katana, one tanto and one wakizashi inflicted them wounds. The last body we found was a little different though. There are less stab wounds and most of them shallow at best. The cause of death for all three men was the same; extreme blood loss. Whoever did this wanted to watch the guys bleed out.” The girl took down some notes on a notepad. She would take some more notes about the important parts of his report. She would head next to the police station, another place she had never been to, to talk with the chief investigators to see if there were any more needs. Ami felt that there needed to be some leads at this point, the number of deaths too alarming.
