COFFEE SHOP ABANDONED IN "LITTLE NEW ORLEANS"
The Night Kitchen, a Goth-themed coffee shop located at 8850 East 58th Street has closed for business, apparently abandoned by its proprietors.
Authorities searched the premises, which was vacated some time late Sunday night. Police were alarmed at what they found at a table near the cash register; a broken laptop computer, a scalpel, and a large pool of blood on a chair and on the floor.
The memory of the laptop had been entirely wiped. There was no sign of a struggle, and no person, living or dead, was found in the building.
Contact with the landlord has only deepened the mystery, as no documents exist stating who exactly was operating the coffee shop, which opened for business on October 1.
