A medical examiner works in Cadaversville, a place where the dead may sometimes wake in the off hours then die once more. While awake, they are not zombies and don't eat people. They just seem to be sleepwalking and are known to initiate conversations. Luckily, the refrigeration unit in the morgue freezes the body to below 32°F if one wakes up while the morgue is closed. But every time a cadaver wakes up, the medical examiner has to cure them later so they do not reanimate. There is no way of telling if a cadaver had awoken once it dies again, and the refrigeration unit does not indicate whether or not it had to freeze.
How can the medical examiner make a simple mechanism, machine, or apparatus which would be placed within the cooler and indicate whether or not water in the mechanism (and the cadavers) has frozen?
