This instalment of You Make the Call features a hospital porter who kept disappearing after helping with autopsies.

William Moody, 57, was morgue attendant at the Victoria Union Hospital in Prince Albert, Sask. Hired in March 2006, he worked on a casual basis assisting with autopsies in the hospital lab.

A few months later, Moody bid on and won a casual/relief position as a porter in the hospital’s emergency department (ER). He intended for the ER position as a side job to help support his family.
