I seem to recall chronotrig and others noting that the actual Japanese text uses a mere "counter" as well. Which would be closest to a subjectless "these six are" without specifying what they are six of.

I mean I don't like red twisting either, but I don't think you can demonstrably prove the red is referring to bodies when it says persons, especially since Erika felt compelled to force Battler to be specific about it.
Redaction of the Golden Witch
I submit that a murder was committed in 1996.
This murder was a "copycat" crime inspired by our tales of 1986.
This story is a redacted confession.
