I do understand the eye opening sight of a lifeless body, and there are barriers that hide the remains ( freestanding ) with out covering the evidence , if the local police have these, if not ..get some for the sake of ALL concerned...family and friends could have passed bye and saw there loved one, it's the decent thing to do for anyone , man or beast stricken down and laying in the roadway...RIP. Sir...Amen
