Black Ops

Mystery wrapped in enigma.

One of my esteemed colleagues was working when a blue call came in. Young male, cardiac arrest, immersion. Failed resuscitation.

The exact mechanism was... well, unclear. He's been in the water, but not for long, and there were no details about the patient.

He was accompanied by some heavyset, serious looking gentlemen, who were evasive about who they were and whether they knew the deceased.

They wanted to claim the body though, but something didn't quite ring true.

A young man, in the service of his country, perhaps? Lost his life, somehow. On a foreign field?

We never did find out, and can't imagine we ever shall.
