The body was found slumped behind the door of the staff meeting room in the ICU, at 0900 hours on Monday, 11th May 2009. No ID cards were found on the body but all signs point to the fact that the deceased was not well liked when alive.
Rigor mortis and lividity indicate the body has been dead for more than 12 hours. There are no obvious external injuries seen. There are no sign of trauma or strangulation. The stiff limbs indicate that the deceased died violently, probably having pre-mortem seizures. We believe that the deceased put up quite a struggle before dying.
The gender of the deceased could not be determined but it would appear that the deceased is male. There are no signs to suggest that the deceased was sexually assaulted antemortem. We have reasons to believe that the deceased was killed elsewhere and the body dumped here or perhaps in the dying moments, the deceased crawled to its final resting spot.
The cause of death at autopsy has been ascertained to be due to asphyxiation or to be put in layman’s term: the deceased was gassed to death.
Pinpointing the suspect would be difficult as the place is practically crawling with anaesthetists!!!
Our recommendation is to quietly dispose off the body and pretend nothing happened. What’s one cockroach in a population of a billion?!
Depends on how you look at it, the hospital can be the cleanest place on earth or the dirtiest!
