Headlines and News Updates

Post by Chris Shaffer on Wed Aug 27, 2014 2:32 pm

This thread's going to be the catch-all for general updates to local news or events that your characters would be aware of just by existing in the setting. So here we go.


  • Serial killer caught -- Vincent Delgado, a serial killer also known as "The Inquisitor" for reasons not explained in the news, was apprehended in Pittsburgh on the 21st of August. Delgado, who started his killing career with Morgantown librarian Isaac Richards, was found standing over the body of a transient by Pittsburgh police. An anonymous tip indicated to the police that he'd been seen stalking around the neighborhood, and the authorities caught him with the katana believed to have been his signature weapon. Coroner reports match the wounds on his most recent victim to the katana he was found with. He's been charged with multiple murders and transferred to a special facility while he awaits trial.
  • Assault victims found, moved to hospital -- At the Park n Ride beneath the Pilot station at the Goshen Road exit, local drivers found three men who had been brutally assaulted on the night of the 23rd. They had no identification and police have not released their names. One of them died of blood loss, despite the best efforts of the people who found them, before the ambulance arrived. The others are in critical condition.
  • Longdon Street house burns -- Also on the night of the 23rd, a house belonging to someone named Walter Daley burned to the ground. Reports from neighbors describe a group of individuals entering the house and leaving just before the fire began, but neither they nor the owner have been located by police. The fire department is clear that the fire is definitely arson.

  • Gas pipe bursts in library-- A pressure imbalance in a gas pipe caused a small explosion in the Wise Library around 1am on September 14th. No fire was reported, but a corner of the library was torn up and people still in the building reported terrifying hallucinations.
  • Accident victim sought-- Authorities are looking for any information about a man supposedly hit by a car on High Street the evening of Tuesday the 23rd at about 11pm. The description given matches that of Leland Chase, one of the Carthians in town. The article is vague about any further information other that he apparently left the scene of the accident and has not filed any sort of report with the police nor has he turned up in the local hospitals.
