Breaking News!!!

Body Found Near Railroad Tracks!
Police Investigation Ongoing

No... seriously... I got this pic (and others like it) on my way home tonight at about 5:00 p.m. eastern.

The body is/was apparently in the trees and brush to the left of the officers in the background. Later images (with less interesting composition) show investigators and detectives exiting those bushes talking animatedly.

This is a ceiling inside a home.  The original color is green, but as you can see from the lamp shade, there is a bronze patina color to everything in the home from kerosene heaters.  I saw many "meringue  pie ceilings" over the years....the patina was "different".
