gave one last cough and splutter before falling into his deep permanent sleep. In fact, the Nembutal worked very quickly. David’s death happened within minutes.
Soon afer David died, two Swiss policemen arrived at the clinic. One in his 20s the other in his late 50s and rather surly. You could tell that he was no fan of this part of his job.
In Basel, unlike on other Cantons, the police examine the body for signs of foul play. When examining David they noticed the bruising on one arm. Fortunately, Nurse Carol was able to quickly explain that he had slipped getting out of bed that very morning. The bruising, cuts and bandaging were the direct result of this. With this explanation the police were satisfied and David’s body was released to the undertaker.
