Brave new world: in the near future of self/less it is possible to transplant his soul into another body, what could be life-saving measures by OP. This not entirely legal procedure is referred to as “shedding”, so as a stripping off the old body such as a snake, stripping their old skin. The procedure has however yet reached no maturity and is reserved only for the rich under the old or as a very costly affair. Such a one is an anonymous billionaire who had not long to live under normal conditions.
Since the time of him, he is only too willing to undergo the procedure. Unfortunately the choice of his desired carcass as subsequently turns out unfavorably: victims of a homicide attack was the fresh variety.
