Remarkable correspondence from the consistently unremarkable world of email

Here at City Newspaper HQ, we get frequent email updates from the Rochester Police Department filling us in on the latest in local crime. Mostly, they just form a sad commentary. (You should see all the RPD messages with the subject header "Homicide" clogging our inbox.) But when one titled "Possible Fetus" arrived a couple weeks ago, we couldn't help but giggle at the black humor. Send reports of your interesting findings to

Subject: Possible Fetus

On 07-25-05 at 11:20 p.m. RPD was requested to assist MCSO in the recovery of a cloth containing a badly decomposed or rotten item inside. The package was not opened and the M.E.s office responded as a precautionary measure. It has been determined that the "package" found last night at Durand Park is non-human, according to the Medical Examiner's Office. Looks like food! Thanks, Joe
