Flash Fiction: The People vs. the Zombie Rights Foundation

It all started going wrong, when they let zombies work at the coroner’s office.

Everything went smoothly at first. Most funeral homes were already zombie-owned; becoming coroners wasn’t all that different. Then the zombies started munching on the corpses.

The Chief Examiner put up signs all over the morgue: Do Not Eat the Bodies! The State Legislature passed the Pike Act, after the infamous Dr. Pike was acquitted on nine counts of murder because zombies had eaten all the evidence. The Supreme Court upheld the law in the People vs. the Zombie Rights Foundation.

But the corpse eating continued unabated.
