Smouldering Corpse Not Shc

That smouldering corpse found in a Syracuse cemetery (SF#89) turns out to have been a case of murder rather than SHC (Spontaneous Human Combustion). D. Nelson has confessed to stabbing the victim and ultimately dumping the body in the cemetery and setting it ablaze with gasoline.
