Unidentified

News headlines in a frenzy. Conspiracy theorists speculating wildly. Nobody with any real answers and the missing person list growing larger every day.

The heat from the incinerator is almost too much to bare. Couple that with the feeling of sweat and soot coating the skin and it is enough to drive a person insane. However, this seemed the best way to dispose of the evidence. Certainly not a job for the faint of heart or for someone without patience. There needs to be nothing identifiable left if the authorities come looking, but really why would they ever look here? How many people have a human-size stove in their basement? The answer is H. H. Holmes and me! And who am I?
