Thanks to all that replied!
I was on my way out the door to work. Will move in the morning when I return.

Thanks again!

John is right
Family Sepsidae, I think even genus Sepsis.

A wild guess
The general 'look' reminds me of something in the Family Platystomatidae. Wait for an expert to confirm, though.

 
Not an expert
but I was thinking Black Scavenger Flies (Sepsidae)
