The cops came immediately. The EMS came soon after. They checked Conley’s pulse, declared him dead and left. It would take six hours for the Wayne County Medical Examiner to pick up his body.

The victim’s cousin, who did not want to be identified, said it took forever for the coroner to arrive. “The sun was up,” the cousin said. “When they came and got him the sun was down The sun had already set on the other side of the planet. And he still out here laying.”
