    I happened to drive past by the scene of the crime.
    Sunday early morning coming from Halloween Horror Nights ( I can cleary remember it around 2am, have no idea why it says 3:15 though) about 3 cop cars and cops alongside the exit searching the floor when my attention is drawn towards a body covered in a white sheet. A feeling of sadness consumed me after that, best believe the image was with me for a few days.
