I’m not sure of the format I should be using to write this, so I guess I’m just gonna tell the whole story. It all started when I wrote this now famous article about my encounter with werewolves in Montana. It got pretty good reception so I was invited to tape it for Dave Jackson’s radio show. I was pretty pumped about it to be honest. He then took me out to drink at the bar.
As I left, I heard a scream coming from the graveyard. I ran over there and found it, a body, a young girl about 16 years old with three big gashes across her back. I was pretty stunned. I stayed on the scene until the police came and took the body along with the suspect, a black guy that was hiding in the bushes, covered in blood. He looked pretty frightened to be honest.
I went back home, thinking I could use what I saw as inspiration for my new story, which I now realise is quite inhumane of me. Anyways it didn’t quite pan out that way. I couldn’t get this image out of my head, it was too similar to what I had written and sadly, I’m not the only one who saw it. Through the week-end people around town started talking about it, thinking it was a copycat killer or something taking inspiration from my stories. I had to prove them wrong.
I first met up with a prest that was on the scene as well. Together we started following leads, we went to the victim’s house and talked with her mother, we didn’t learn much apart from the fact that she had been with her friend, a certain Megan Roberts. We then made our way to the morgue to try and get some info from the autopsy but all we got was that the surgeon compared it to a bear attack and found a thorn-like object lodged into one of her wounds.
Our subsequent search into the victim’s friend, Megan, managed to get us her adress but upon our visit to her house, we found that no one had picked up the newspaper at the door in weeks, yet it seemed that someone was living there as there was fresh food on the table inside as we had seen from the window. We also looked up the newspaper archives for clues about the Roberts family or similar attacks but we found nothing conclusive, apart of course for various people being killed in the woods by wild beasts but that is to be expected when you live so close to the forest.
Either way, I tried to get Jackson not to put my story on the radio but it was sadly too late. We didn’t manage to get much further into our investigation apart from that until tuesday where me, the priest, Tom a guy we had also met up with that had been at the scene, The suspect’s lawyer and the suspect’s girlfriend had all been summoned to the police station to file a witness report.
I gave mine although I think that the fact that I was under the influence may lead them to dismiss my report.
Since I now have to prove my innocence and the suspect’s lawyer also has to gain from proving the suspect’s innocence, we grouped up. It seems that the man is being charged for murder along with rape. It all doesn’t add up though, we really have to figure out why.
Anyhow, that’s pretty much all I got for the past couple days, not much to go on but we got a few leads and I have some good people to help me through the investigation. Hopefully these future reports will help clear my name so I can come back to writing my stories as I am accustomed to.
