Suspense Story

The sun rose over the little town of Glandhill. The church tower struck seven and far away you could see the farmer setting to work on the fields. It seemed like the perfect town, but all was not well in Glandhill. Only last night 36 year old Brian Fuller was found dangling by his intestines from a lamp post, a pool of congealing blood blood underneath him.
