The common housefly, Musca domestica, as we frequently refer to it, has experienced a shocking spate of violent crime within its community. This fly-on-fly villainy hit close to home as I went to clear away what appeared to be a naturally dead musca on my windowsill this morning. Upon further examination, it was abundantly clear that this one did not merely pass of starvation or from inadvertently flying into the window (see image below – GRAPHIC IMAGE). It appeared as though multiple amputations had been performed with surgical precision. The authorities were contacted and the windowsill was immediately declared a crime scene and cordoned off with the thinnest ribbon-like police tape to secure the area. The identity of the victim has not yet been released pending notification of family members which could be a prolonged process. An autopsy is pending. Anyone with information related to this or any other non-human species-related crime please call FLY-STOPPERS. “These things don’t typically happen around here,” said a neighbor. Not anymore, not anymore.
