Tech millionaire victim of gangland-style murder
Posted by Galileos Lens on Wednesday 06 December 2017 - 14:50:19
Police sources have confirmed the identity of the body discovered in Aon Center on the morning of November 30th as tech millionaire, Jonas Minchin. Minchin, who gained recent wealth and fame with the release of the Mapps mobile application, was discovered at 4:27 am in the Cultural Landscape Foundation courtyard. Sources say that Minchin was bound by his wrists and ankles to the four corners of a picnic table. The killer, or killers, displayed Minchin's nude corpse atop an American flag that had been dyed black, a symbol, experts say, of the Anarchist movement dating back to the late 1800's. He was shot from close-range in the upper abdomen and once more between the eyes. At this time, the police are not releasing any information about persons of interest or suspects in the brutal murder, but state that the method of execution indicates a possible connection to organized crime.

Iron and Blood
Posted by Galileos Lens on Friday 24 November 2017 - 04:37:48
Bloody fighting has broken out in the County of Silent Bells following the assassination of Countess Vittoria by the Iron Archer.

In a Thanksgiving peace talk organized by her most fervent follower, Satyr Baroness Mave Quarrie, between the Countess and the infamous Righ Ridley Broketooth, iron death descended on the gathered. The Countess and three others were slain by cold iron rods fired into the hotel dining hall they had rented out as neutral ground.

Baroness Mave and Righ Broketooth both escaped along with most of their retinues, and fighting has immediately broken out in the aftermath.

A Fallen Hero
Posted by Hermione on Saturday 11 November 2017 - 09:06:39
On local news, and in the newspapers today the front-page news story is on the death of a local hero. One Detective Johnathan Wattly died last evening in failed robbery attempt of his home. He dead while selflessly defending several of the neighborhood children from at least two attackers. The motives of the attack are unclear, as are some of the details. Reports cite that Wattly engaged the suspects from his wheelchair while pleading for the children to run. During the struggle one of the gas lines was ruptured and the resulting explosion is thought to have killed Wattly and at least one of his attackers.

The mayor was quoted as saying, “Detective Wattly, is remembered today by a grateful city. He was responsible for helping reign the cities gang violence in the mid to late 90’s and was decorated several times for bravery. After his fateful injury that left him paralyzed from the waist down he continued to work as an advocate for several children’s charities and those supporting the families of fallen police officers. Thanks to this Wattly’s selfless actions these children were able to return home to their parents. As a result of his heroism and selfless service to the city, I have ordered all flags in the city limits to half-mast for the next three days to honor this great public servant, and hero.”

Investigations continue at the crime scene, but the motives of the attack are still unclear at this time. Agents from the FBI, ATF, and local gang specialists are reported to be on scene. However, no theories are being offered at this time. Local police report that that this investigation is now in the hands of the FBI which they are working with diligently to bring any of those responsible for this terrible crime to justice.

The six children involved in the incident are said to have been returned to their parents, and grief consolers from the FBI are meeting with them now to help understand what took place and to assist them with the trauma of the ordeal.

Services to honor to fallen hero will be open to the public next Friday starting at 4pm. It is reported his remains will be laid to rest with full honors by his fellow police officers and friends. It is expected the Mayor, the Police Chief, and other local officials are expected to attend.

Halloween Prank Gone Deadly Wrong [Live at Five]
Posted by fangwulf on Sunday 29 October 2017 - 20:43:28
Anchor: We go live to Diane in the heat of Downtown Los Angeles in a quiet neighborhood. Diane?

Diane: Thank you, Todd. Late Saturday night while a community celebrated the upcoming festivities, terror rocked the Huffman household. Timothy Huffman Jr., twenty, who goes by the name of 23r0prankzchannel on YouTube, had invited his friends over for a Halloween party and to witness his ultimate prank. A prank that would swiftly end the life of 22 year old Nathalie Justice, and wound several others. Sources say there had been a fight that broke out the previous night between Timothy and his parents, Dolores, 45, and Timothy Sr., 43. Police believe this is when he killed them with the family's hunting rifle, and sawed them limb from limb, leaving the bits and pieces in this freezer chest.

But this is not where this night of terror ends.

Last night, this young man, an Ivy League student, invited his friends over to witness his newest prank. Sources say they were drugged. Blindfolded and had animal masks glued over their heads. No one seemed to know prior going into the scenario. One man and one woman were found outside, with a lion and tiger mask on respectively, their wounds minorly treated by an anonymous good Samaritan so the ambulance had time to get to them. Both have been admitted to the [Local] Hospital, and are in stable condition.

Others were not so lucky. Justice, a Senior at [Prestigious University] and months away from earning her bachelor's degree, was found shot on the staircase. It is believed she tried to take off her mask and succeeded, as the skin was peeled away from her face with the adhesive in the mask. The time spent, however, led to her losing her life.

The entire incident was being streamed on the perpetrator's computer, through an alternate website. YouTube has disavowed knowledge and permanently banned the account.

The survivors, ranging from as young as sixteen to as old as twenty five are all in stable condition, being treated for abrasions and emotional trauma.

Back to you, Todd.

Suicide Rocks Community in East LA
Posted by fangwulf on Wednesday 06 September 2017 - 14:20:51
In the early morning of Wednesday September sixth, a body was discovered on South Ditman Avenue, having allegedly lept from the top story of the Pacific Heights apartment complex. The building has been long since condemned, awaiting permits from the city to tear it down.

"We are currently investigating this as a suicide," police chief Abraham Braun, a veteran of the East LA police department, said early this morning as the area was taped off. "There was no note left but residents have no reason to fear this is a sign of gang violence. There is no sign of a struggle from the jump point, nor was there any sign of break-in outside of the building outside of an opened basement door.
I urge all residents to go back to your homes. In the meantime, for the young people considering suicide, I urge you to seek help before taking this route. This is not the answer."

Sources say, despite his words, the police have not ruled out homicide.
