Act I? Afghan vet's severed head found

As many know, I'm an ardent fan of live theater and dead bodies. When the two become one, I become fascinated.

Eyes glued to the tube, I sent out for food during the O.J. Simpson trial.

This Costa Mesa, Calif. beheading/dismemberment story could be a good one to follow:
LA Times: Costa Mesa police detectives found the severed head of an Army veteran at a Long Beach park, the latest twist in a bizarre double slaying.

The discovery was made Saturday. The victim's hand and arm were found there in recent days.

On Friday, police said a community-theater actor had been arrested in the killing of Samuel Herr, a 26-year-old Army veteran who served in Afghanistan and was attending Orange Coast College. Police allege the suspect dismembered his body and then killed Herr's tutor, Juri Kibuishi, staging the scene as a sexual assault. They said the actor was the one who had invited Kibuishi to the apartment, using Herr's cellphone.

Daniel Wozniak, 27, who lived three floors below Herr, had recently wrapped up a nearly monthlong performance of the musical "Nine" at the Hunger Artists Theatre Company in Fullerton and was to be married Friday at a park in Long Beach, police said. He had financial problems, owed money to several friends and was about to be evicted from his apartment, said Costa Mesa Sgt. Ed Everett. The case broke when they linked Wozniak to ATM withdrawals from Herr's account, police said. ...More@LATimes
The only problem is the link doesn't say whether the mugshot is an old one of the victim or a new one of the suspect.
