As the policeman pulled back the sheet, she knew immediately that it was the victim they had been searching for the past few days.  Her face looked blue, the fingers on the left hand seemed to be chewed on.  Maybe some some small animal.  It happened after death, seeing the lack of blood.  After a quick check of the body, it was clear that the cause of death was not a gunshot or knife wound. Detective Mouren would have to wait for the report from the coroner to give an answer to how the victim died.
She signed the officer that she was done and decided to walk the scene.
No matter how dirty the street, she could not really find much that looked like evidence.  A bike that seemed abandoned, had a piece of cloth stuck onto it. On her notepad she wrote: Check if it’s the victim’s bike.  After that she took a picture of it and recovered the cloth.  A shoe without heel, could be of the victim, so she took another picture and bagged it.     The walk had already taken almost an hour of her time, but she was still being focussed.  Until something made her deviate the path.  In the corner of her eye she found something shining from the shadows.  with her flashlight at hand, she shoved some rubbish out of the way and found,…  A piece of finger and a ring still on it.  The camera took a picture, before she lifted the finger to store in an evidence bag.  For a moment she looked at the ring.  It was strange looking.  Detective Mouren put it away before her attention shifted. Too late, … she was shoved really hard into the wall.  The pain rushed in and she was trying to grasp for a breath.  The last thing she saw before closing her eyes, where whiskers.  “A cat?”  She mumbled and then fainted.
