Plum Wood Chapter One

"Hello this is the Plum Wood Police Department. How may I help you?"

"I'm calling because there is a dead woman in the woods by highway 77. She has no face or eyes."

"Who am I'm speaking with?"

"This is the killer. I cut off her face and removed her eyes and took them with me. That way I can always look her in the face. Fuck the world everybody killer."

"Sir can you tell me why you did this? Damn he ended his call."

Plum Wood was a small city with a low crime rate. When officer Daniel received a call from a killer telling him there was a dead woman in the woods by highway 77 it was surprising. Officer Daniel placed the phone back on the receiver and took a deep breath. He slowly exhaled and then called all available officers and Detective Thomas.

"Hello Detective Thomas this is officer Daniel. I just received a call from a man telling me there was a dead woman in the woods by highway 77. He said he was the killer and that he cut off her face and removed her eyes and took them with him. That way he can always look her in the face. I tried to get his name and for him to tell me why he did this but he ended his call. I think he was using a cellphone."
