It was also really helpful for my book, partially because my brain was revving in a way it isn't usually inspired to do. I realized I started my book in the wrong place in the story, and the new beginning will be much better. I have to add a coroner. A concern of mine is trying to portray the police department in a realistic way, so it was a relief to hear one writer refer to his books as "police non-procedurals" - the characters are cops who behave in ways no real cop would - and another talk about having friends who were cops and instructed her, but who hand-waved some inaccuracies because that's how it's always done on tv.
A coroner said that if you have pets and you die and no one notices for a while, dogs are more likely to eat you than cats. When cats do eat you, it's usually just the eyes.
