15. Like A Wet Balloon

Autopsy tech/death investigator.

A morbidly obese man had died in a cheap motel room with the heat cranked up and wasn’t found for several days.

By the time we got him to the morgue, he was horribly bloated from decomp gas and was purple and green all over. There was lots of skin slip.

Our forensic pathologist went to make the initial Y incision, and the force of the escaping gas blew gore all over us and the ceiling while making a sound like a wet balloon with the air being pinched out.

We all paused for a moment as the worst stank I have ever smelled enveloped the room like something that had crawled out of Satan’s anus. Then we burst out laughing because it was all we really could do.

It didn’t help that he was leaking liquified fat all over the floor. My boots have never been the same since.
