Dead uncertain

So I open a drawer and find a large dead cockroach with its head half-bitten off.


(No, I didn't scream or run away, I reserve that behaviour for lizards.)

I stared at the mutilated corpse for a minute like a psycho, trying to determine the cause of death.

It wasn't me for sure.

All right, what could it be?? Do I have something more sinister to fear?

PS: Viv thinks it must have tried to hit on a female preying praying mantis.

It was Jason. Just finished watching Friday the 13th (with Jason Voorhees), and then read this post. It kind of fits, no?

Duh! Ants! :P

PS: This is purely out of experience. Any resemblance to cockroaches, living or dead, is purely coincidental.

Either lizards or ants love a bheja unfry'd or the cockroach was long decomposing. You only found headless exoskeleton which didn't decompose that easy.

First two don't seem to fit. Ants and lizards like all of a cockroach., limbs abdomen, etc.
Plus, lizards dont roam around inside drawers much do they? And ant armies wouldn't leave the crime scene until they have the entire booty stashed away. Witness did not mention anything about roaming ants.

Maybe the head got half chopped off when someone closed the drawer :P

#Sowmya,
Really?? But I thought ants wouldn't leave a meal unfinished, and would just drag it home, no?

#crazy,
Same question as to Sowmya! :O

#Stupidosaur,
Naah, it was in a frequently accessed drawer, so the murder was not long ago...

//And ant armies wouldn't leave the crime scene until they have the entire booty stashed away.

Precisely! :O

//Maybe the head got half chopped off when someone closed the drawer :P

YIKES! It wasn't Viv or me! Who was it?? :O
