Transcript-Interrogation of Kelly Xiong
Interrogating Officer: Sgt. Eric Renfield
Location: County Sheriff's Office
Time: 12:15 PM
Renfield: You don't mind if I record this, do you? It helps me remember.
Xiong: No, Eric. Go ahead.
Renfield: Thank you. I was a little confused about the report filed by the coroner's office.
Xiong: Yeah. It was pretty strange stuff.
Renfield: Could you shed a little light on it?
Xiong: I can try, but we're pretty much in the dark here.
Renfield: Was the cause of death cardiac arrest?
Xiong: That's what we're going with right now. We can't really find any other cause.
Renfield: Was it a pre-existing condition? Did Krast have heart problems?
Xiong: It's not in his medical history, but given what we found, the pain of what he experienced would be sufficient to cause a heart attack.
Renfield: What did you find?
Xiong: His head, hands and feet were all on backwards.
Renfield: Someone twisted them around?
Xiong: No, that's the weird part. The bones weren't broken, and the skin wasn't twisted or bruised. In fact, it was as if he had been born with these deformities, but again, they're not in his medical history.
Renfield: Could someone have done this to him?
Xiong: It would take a substantial amount of surgical know-how and prowess to pull off something like this. I've gone through years of medical training, and I certainly couldn't do it. Besides, from what we saw, there weren't any marks indicating that someone had taken his appendages off beforehand, which would be necessary if someone wanted to recreate this kind of thing.
Renfield: So how did this happen?
Xiong: At this point, your guess is as good as mine. Granted, I haven't been in this field for very long, but I've seen some nasty stuff. This is just plain weird, and I couldn't find anything that even remotely resembled it in our records.
Renfield: Could it be natural?
Xiong: What's natural is the head facing forward, the feet facing forward and your palms facing inward toward your body. There is nothing natural about this.
Renfield: Sorry, I have to ask these questions. I need things to be clear to solve a case.
Xiong: You're a good detective, but this stuff just isn't clear-cut.
Renfield: Well, thanks for explaining what you could.
Xiong: No problem, Eric. It's always nice to see you.
Renfield: [Laughs] Yeah. Hey, would you want to grab coffee sometime, you know, with, uh, me?
Xiong: Eric, are you asking me out?
Renfield: Yeah [Laughs], I guess I-oh [EXPLETIVE DELETED]. Is this thing still on?
