A Body. Dead. Wrapped In Plastic.

Riverside, CA

Not exactly Twin Peaks, but there was a corpse found wrapped up in something (cops aren't saying what) in a Riverside orange grove Tuesday morning. Cops think it's homicide. Ya think?

Gangland shooting? Doubtful. Somebody was trying to hide the body, if not too hard. You don't wrap a guy up if you're sending a message. And you don't dig a hole if you're just trying to get the body as far away from the crime scene as possible. I'm betting he was killed pretty far away, and the killer's just trying to divert suspicion.

That never works, by the way.

Once you ID the body it's pretty much cinched up. Guaranteed somebody will say so-and-so didn't like him and, oh look, these Spongebob Squarepants sheets are from so-and-so's kid's room. Well, whatta ya know.

They didn't set it on fire? What the hell's up with that? Either someone dropped the ball, or he wasn't killed in the IE.

Damn outsiders.
