“It was a cold foggy Sunday morning as I was alone working/opening up the deli I owned.

Went to the back alley behind the store and noticed two legs sticking out from under a car with two large boots on. I said 'wake up' and there was no response. I kicked the bottom of the boot and it felt like I was kicking concrete. That is when I realized what 'stiff as a board meant' as the guy was dead. Called 911 and they picked him up.”
