In Death Masks, Harry Dresden visited the morgue for the first time. Karrin Murphy invited him to look at a corpse, and he meets Butters for the first time; polka music was heard down the hall. The body Harry looked at was headless, had parts of its arms missing, and was mutilated across the torso in a fine grid pattern. The real cause of death was the plague, several of them, Harry finds an Eye of Thoth tattoo on inner arm.
