Fingers trembling with excitement, I opened the package. Just as I had hoped, it was the camera I won on eBay. With mild delight I realized I had received a better deal than I had planned, because the previous owner had left the memory card in the slot.
Before sending an e-mail to the seller alerting them of the mistake, I decided to see if anything was on it. Setting the camera on slideshow I watched as the camera displayed a picture of a shipping label. My confusion turned to horror as the next image was of a person brutally murdered. The rest of the card was alternating pictures of a mailing address followed by a murder scene.
The last image was of the shipping label from the box I had just opened.
