  • Play stupid games… Win stupid prizes.

  • “Decedent remained on the scene.”

    These writeup are strange. Was decedent going to be “last seen heading west on Bates, muttering about brains?”

    I just wonder why they would write that detail in after all the other unfortunate details.

    • I believe that just means he was dead when they got there as opposed to being transported to the hospital with a chance of surviving. I agree the phrasing is really awkward.
