3. The First Body

Morrow and Sanders went through several narrow corridors until they reached a spacious dark room full of officers. They were all analyzing something in great detail and then Sanders saw it, on the opposite wall there was a dead man tied to a cross. The room was silent; all anyone could do was stare. 

The First Body

"Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do." the detective uttered.

"What did you say?" asked the Commissioner.

"Jesus’ last words, he was referring to the Roman soldiers who put him there." Sanders clarified. "Who is the poor fellow?"

"His name is Donnie, a local millionaire."

"Did he have any enemies?"

"Many, but nobody we know crazy enough to do this."

Sanders fell silent as he approached the body and examined it. He noticed there was also writing on the wall surrounding the cross. Sanders scribbled something in his notepad, turned around, and left.

"Call me when you find the next victim" he said to the Commissioner on his way out.
