    Trivia (1)

    • Coroner Nydorf keeps bemoaning the fact that he has to perform an autopsy on "a three week-old stiff," implying that he's never done such a horrible task. However, as Chief Coroner, it should not be out of the ordinary nor too difficult to perform an autopsy on a partially decomposed body, particularly as this one was interred and preserved.
