  • Ben Margolis Autopsy Center of Chicago

Abstract

“What’s wrong wit’ you?” asked the shopkeeper.

     “Ain’t nothin’ wrong with me,” scowled Mr. Jackson as a flap of skin unfolded across his chest. Hinged at the side like an armoire door to Mr. Jackson’s body, the flap opened at the breast bone, curling outward towards his left arm.
