Stanley Bad‘s body was found in the early hours of Tuesday morning, he was naked accept for a pair of beaten up old “pimp” shoes. He had a huge slit through his stomach and his guts had been partially ripped out. A hand written note left in his right hand read “Love Lynda”. Around the rim of each fingernail was the remains of cherry red nail varnish that had been hastily removed. It was known that Stanley had been a transvestite during his twenties but friends claimed this had been an experimental phase he had long since given up. To the best of his housemates’ knowledge Stanley had gone to bed complaining of a headache at 10.30 on the night of the incident.
Witness No.1 – Yes I knew Stanley reasonably well, as well as you could know Stanley. He was a bit of an awkward bugger, seemed to get pleasure out of causing distress to others. Nothing major, just spiteful annoying things, but yes I imagine he had quite a few people who really disliked him. Wouldn’t have thought enough to do this to him though. Lynda? No I didn’t know he was seeing anyone called Lydna. Funny way to spell it. Strange.., his alter ego back in his college days was called Lynda, Lynda Beast, he used to spell it that way because it was an anagram of his own name.
