Rehydrating Corpses for Forensic Purposes

For the past two decades, Dr. Alejandro Hernández Cárdenas has been amassing a macabre body of work. An unassuming local dentist, Hernández Cárdenas has perfected a chemical formula that rehydrates corpses for identification.

He charges $60US for the ingredients to pull off a full-body rehydration, which we’re told can restore a corpse to its lifelike state, revealing the victim’s identity, and even the cause of death.

About Heretic

I design video games for a living, write fiction, political theory and poetry for personal amusement, and train regularly in Western European 16th century swordwork. On frequent occasion I have been known to hunt for and explore abandoned graveyards, train tunnels and other interesting places wherever I may find them, but there is absolutely no truth to the rumor that I am preparing to set off a zombie apocalypse. Nothing that will stand up in court, at least. I use paranthesis with distressing frequency, have a deep passion for history, anthropology and sociological theory, and really, really, really hate mayonnaise. But I wash my hands after the writing. Promise.
