From a recent press release, posted on a publicly viewable website of a local law enforcement agency:

Units were dispatched “for a body found in an abandoned vehicle…  Upon the deputies arrival the body had obvious signs of death.”

Obvious signs of death.

Maybe they let McGruff write this one.  Or maybe that’s being unfair to McGruff.

I really wish they’d run these things past someone who had at least a minor in English in college.  A criminology degree apparently isn’t enough.
