THE PIZZA KILLER   (99 words)

PHOTO PROMPT © Dale Rogerson

By Neel Anil Panicker

They looked like any other__the rooms, all three of them, from where the bodies were discovered, the arms and legs tightly bound, the heads neatly decapitated.

In one, a music stereo was still playing Alicias Keyes on auto tune.

Another walled end to end with a multitudinous range of books, its occupant, now dead, clearly a fan of Shakespeare.

The one adjacent to it a splash of rainbow colors; choc a bloc with large sized Barbie dolls.

Inspector Sharma’s eyes zeroed in on the half eaten pizza.

He knew the signature well: the pizza killer was on prowl, again.

  5. Wow!! What a story, the descriptions made me feel like I was right there.


  6. Poor Sharma has his work cut out for him. This could be the plot of a cracking detective story, Neel. Nicely done


  7. the crime scene was laid out, i suspect there were more than one killers. hopefully, inspector sharma would catch them soon.


  8. That’s the very reason I never get delivery! Enjoyed!!!

    Well done, Neel! What is it about this picture that has brought murder to mind for so many? 😉


  10. What kind of criminal goes around leaving half eaten pizzas? Surely a mad man is at work here.
