A drive-by shooting kills a passenger in a car and his bloody remains stain the interior of a vehicle. Not far away in another a town, a man puts a 44 mag in his mouth and commits suicide – blood splatters through his head and his scalp covers the walls, furniture and carpet.
Police arrive and investigate the crime scenes, then leave. But who cleans up the remaining blood stains from the lounge room, or scrubs the interior of the car from the drive-by shooting? Is it a grieving family that’s left to deal with the clean up?
