The truck was parked in the same place, day after day. No one’s using it. It’s a sign I should take it, Jean-Michel thought.

Late Friday afternoon, he returned to the parking lot. In minutes, he broke in, hooked up a portable battery charger and hotwired the truck. Maybe there’s something valuable in the back, he thought, ever hopeful.

As Jean-Michel drove around a sharp curve, the truck’s cargo door swung open. In the police cruiser just behind, two officers saw something fall out: human, bloody, and wrapped in industrial cellophane. It’s a sign, they said, turning on the siren.

  1. Well… one would have to wonder about the cops if they did not take the body falling out the back of the truck as a sign! Great story!
