Georgia On My Mind

The girl's death, according to the coroner, was the most brutal crime his office had ever encountered. He'd seen savage death in his time, but the mind that had destroyed this life was possessed by a special wickedness. Every inch of the girl's body bore evidence of a strong chemical emulsifying agent. The coroner at first thought it was a residue left by insects until he realized the agent was man-made. Detergent. Louanne Frances Fleming had died brutally, but afterwards, she had been cleaned like a new car.
