Case File: Board of Health vs. Amun

Police Reports

Case Description: Complainant (Board of Health) accuses defendant (Amun) of observing ritualized cannibalism and doing nothing to stop it.

Case Status: Case dismissed. The cannibalism in question is a part of a pharaoh's progress through the underworld and all gods are active, willing participants. It sounds icky, but it's pretty similar to the Catholic idea of transubstantiation.
