Cypher reads: I have already confirmed we will be bodies of merit and diligence

Cypher is solved with accompanying news article in box that is also below (Dead Body Article)

This cypher reflects language that is in the accompanying dead body article (pictured below) and is JWJ's cryptic way of pointing us to that article. The sentences read:

"it does not seem likely that phone call carried with it any merit. It appears that the larger story here is not the fate of Jane Doe, but rather the diligence of our local safety and health institutions."

This is the article that the book cypher is used on. The first sentence that it starts on is the first sentence of the article. This particular cypher does not use the title of the article or writers name as part of the lines.
