People who work as coroners see the human body in a way few of us could handle. Visions of bloated, traumatized, and often scorched corpses are just part of the daily work, and existential compartmentalization is crucial to do the job.
Still, even the most seasoned of coroners and morticians come across bodies with stories that leave them haunted or shocked.

Oh, my time to shine!
I did a forensic pathology rotation in medical school in Florida. Was working there one day when they brought an old guy in who had been found in his apartment in the middle of the summer with no air conditioning after about a week (So he had decomposed pretty quickly). When bodies decompose the bacteria inside you eats the tissue and releases gas, so bodies tend to be bloated.
