Hey, all. I'm working on an urban fantasy/mystery novel. I've got most of it all worked out, but I realize I am kinda fuzzy on the police procedure of a murder investigation. Here are a few of my questions: *Can a non-relative claim the body of the deceased if the deceased has no living relatives? *Do all those interviewed by the police have to give formal statements at the station? *About how long is the body of a murder victim kept? Is it until the end of the investigation, or just until all forensic evidence is collected? *What's the protocol on a suspected bomb threat near an apartment building?
