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.
