Some people believe this to be the work of aliens due to the precision with which the body was mutilated as well as the similarities it bores to the unexplained mutilations of cattle elsewhere in the world. Various organs, tissue, and muscle had all been extracted in an unusually clinical manner for such a harsh murder. The body showed no signs of struggle and had also been almost entirely drained of blood.
Cause of death was determined to be a heart attack brought on by the agony of the experience. The victim was fully conscious during his own dissection.
