“Cubes” of human flesh floating about in the sewer trigger about a thousand fears, and a possible serial killer is just one of them. (“We all float down here, Georgie.”)

The two cubes of flesh appear to closely match those discovered earlier this year, which were found about 5 miles away in a sewer in Sterling Heights.

    Hmmm. One the one hand Detroit is the perfect city for a serial killer who doesn’t really mind that no one pays attention to his crimes, but I think it’s more likely that this is just a dealer’s way of punishing people.

      I think perhaps a punishment killing would be more “open” less hidden than this? It dosn’t realy deter others if you hide the punishment?

        Theoretically, you’d only need one or two cubes to make one’s point, but obtaining only one or two cubes would likely be much more difficult than just turning a body into many cubes.
