"Burkhardt said the victim was male, and was in his 30s or younger. His head, hands, and legs from the knee down were cut off using a sharp object, and have not been recovered, Burkhardt said. An accelerant was used to set the body on fire after death, he said. "

Yeah, DUH hey? I was reading the transcripts from a murder trial in school. A pathologist was on the stand being cross-examined by the defense attorney. He actually asked this question:

So Doctor, are you telling us that Ms. Smith was dead at the time you conducted her autopsy?

ROFL! hmmmm maybe they think the body put itself there.Seriously, it makes you wonder about some of the statements cops make. They aren't stupid, maybe just REAL REAL bad communicators! ( I hope, anyway) LOL!
