Writing a horror novel: the effects of hydrochloric acid on people

I am Darren Rich, my question is a little abstract but you decide if you want to answer it. Approximately how long would hydrochloric acid take to decompose a human body. I want to know because I am a college student who is trying to write a horror novel, and I think facts and details that make it more realistic is what makes it truly scary. I understand if you do not feel comfortable answering this question, or if you do not know the answer but I appreciate you reading my request.

Thank you

Can anyone tell me if there is an acid that can:
a)be made relatively easily &
b)eat through stainless steel to a depth of 1/6th of an inch in under 36 hours?
I am researching a book, believe it or not, and not a master criminal.
