Chapter 18 shows exactly what you describe:
Brokeback office? lol
Yeah, me too.

Wow!! I've been so busy with school and just everything that I had to leave We're Alive for a while but damn do I regret it!! Took me a couple days to catch up and I'm just so overwhelmed with everything, it's crazy! I love We're Alive! Can't wait to hear what happens next and hopefully know what's going on at Ft. Irwin and also with Datu, Pegs, and them (if we ever hear from them again >.< ). I love Victor, he's become my favorite character so far. Sad about Angel Wasn't expecting that. Wow, definitely keeping up with We're Alive now!! Nice to finally have free time Not leaving We're Alive again!!!
FOUND IT!!! Wow, I can't believe I found the actual street address of the cover art from chapter 18!
The address is 8232 Westminster Avenue, Westminster, CA. That building with the blue awnings you see there is a law office called Liem H. Do & Associates.
If you go to 'street view', then jump across the median to the other side of Westminster Ave and pan left, you can see the real-world equivalent of the artist rendering. This gives us an exact location for what appears to be the southwestern corner of the Colony compound, which definitely runs along Westminster and probably north along Monroe street. Other geographical details:
- The entire western, northern, and eastern sides of Liberty Park is composed of low residential houses and wide streets... a shitty place to be building a fortress wall.
- The nearest body of water seems to be the Santa Ana river, which is way to the east, so it looks like my 'infiltration via aqueduct' notion isn't going to fly, unless Kc dreamed up a fictional reservoir nearby...
- The Westminster police department building on All American Way is not that tall, but neither are most of the buildings in the area. Rooftop cameras would probably be close enough to observe the colony from that distance.
- THIS LINK overviews the sewer standards from the Westminster Dept. of Public Works... it says the sewer main is of 'variable size' VCP pipe, which leads me to believe that a sewer infiltration is the most likely.
Lastly, here's a picture of a typical sewer main, which as you can see is big enough for Victor to work his way through, then up through a manhole once in the Mallony walls...
You learn all kinds of shit from listening to a Zombie podcast, eh?

One thing worth thinking about is if the Katana got stuck in the bone because there was something different about the bone of that zombie.
What if the bone was thicker or harder then she was expecting? It sounds like she was experienced using the katana so would know the areas of the body where it would be best to try and slice someone and make it clean through. So did she miss where she was aiming for, or was it an accident, and a way for CJ to get covered in goop.
