From the inbox:
[Yesterday] morning as I walked to work I noticed the area around chatham square was roped off and a detective-looking guy and some police officers were milling around a tarp-covered bench. When I got closer I realized they’d thrown it over a dead body (look at the sneakers under the bench). I didn’t talk to the cops but I have a strong suspicion it was an overdose–lots of drug addicts hang out at Chatham Square.
