Warning: The following contains actual crime scene and coroner's photographs.
Many of the photos are extremely graphic and may be considered by some to be disturbing or offensive.

I have come to believe that we should see these photos. Seeing the bodies makes the crime more real, rather than something of a campfire horror story. It is easy in our own safe little worlds to see violent crime as something distant, something that happens to 'other' people. We cannot, myself included, always wrap our minds around the gravity of these crimes. The fact of the matter is that murder does not discriminate. It can happen to anyone. These killers are hidden from us until they choose to make themselves visible. To paraphrase H.P. Lovecraft, evil dwells "not in the spaces we know, but between them. They walk serene and primal, undimensioned and to us unseen."

I hope that when you view the photos below, you come away with a better sense of what actually occured. These are not nightly news sound bites over footage filmed half a world away. If fairy tales were once used to frighten and forewarn us, then these are the new fairy tales. This is the work of the witch fattening us for the kill, the troll waiting beneath the bridge.

This is real. The witch won, the troll emerged. We must listen closely to the tales the bodies tell.
