Burnout, part 3

As ever, it's a 'good news/bad news' situation. The good news is, they now know who was tracking down and killing gang members with the Artifact: Sergeant Clark, the head of the precinct's gang unit. The bad news is, Clark is now dead, and the Artifact has vanished.

Artie runs his hands over his face and stares at Myka's face on the Farnsworth screen. "Just tell me that Clark's body is on the way to me right now."

"No. Powell took it."

"Oh, for God's--look, I just don't have time to play bureaucracy games to get it back!"

"Well, I sent you a bunch of pictures that Claudia asked for..."

Artie rolls his eyes. "Yeah, yeah, great. Pictures."

Oooh, pictures? Claudia leans over to have a look.
"Got 'em." With that, she heads back to the hologram projector. (She'll make Artie a believer in digital yet.
...Yeah, okay, probably not, but whatevs.)

"But there was something on his back, Artie," says Pete. "Some kind of a--nasty, metallic lobster-looking thingy, and it's gone now."

"Well, it looked like it was fused to his back..."

"...nooooooo."
She can keep up in that vein for a while. Because... srsly. DO NOT WANT. THIS IS WHY WE HAVE PICTURES.

And she keeps protesting.
At least it's only the cloth, but still.

"blurg," Claudia says, or something very like it, before backing the hell away.
(At least it's not a slimy dead body? Nnnnnot that that really helps.)

"It gave off arcs of electricity," says Myka. "It must be how he burned those people."

"Yeah, yeah yeah yeah."
She can at least work the hologram angle well enough.

"Hey. Artie."
She will admit, now that they've got the back view, there's some more details. Like this... whatever-it-is on Jack's back.
claudiometer: shifty face is shifty (>_>)

"Digital rendering shows Jack had something on his back too."
She's willing to bet there's a connection.

And while she's going on about that, Claudia's playing Comparative Photos.
"Well, dude, Ripley's Believe It Or Not? Same marking on Clark's back."

"So what powers it, Artie? I mean, it must be drawing electricity from somewhere to electrocute people the way it did."
