    The police are baffled. What are your theories?

    The police must have some leads. The trail can't be cold from the start.

    Icy (I see) that there is something odd about this story.

    Depends on how long he's been in the apartment. Dry ice sublimes unbelievably fast, so either:
    1) It happened when he was out of the apartment somewhere and someone wanted to frame him.(considering he's a drug dealer, this doesn't seem too far off)
    2) He did it.
    3) If they prove the body was there over a day or two: He did it and keeps refreshing the body with new dry ice steadily. (and smells terrible due to lack of showering as his tub is 'occupied'.

    That's my guess.

    That pun is sublime.

    I agree with 2. It's far too early to rule out royd rage.

    Why. thank you, Andy - glad my pun was noticed, althought I spelt it out a bit for non native English speakers.

    You slay me.

    My theory is the woman in died from a drug overdose in the hotel room and the guy couldn't think of way of getting her out.

    I liked the understated police reaction, "it's a little weird." As in, "first time this week."

    "It's out of the ordinary," the Sergeant continued. "It's a bit peculiar. It's not something we see everyday. It's not what we would call common. In the general distribution of occurrences this is a low-percentile event. When we see things happening, we expect this not to be one of them."

    It kind of takes your breath away, doesn't it? :rolleyes:

    My theory is she was already there before he rented the room. He's just an innocent bystander. I hope it doesn't become a cold case :D

    Because I'd already said it, maybe?

    Good one. :)

    You mean, like four chilled six-packs?

    How fatal is it to be, say, packed in dry ice for an unknown period of time?

    Ooh, a chill just ran down my spine.
