I...I can't even comprehend this right now.
We've got four bodies piled up in an apartment room in the suburbs of town.
That brings the total to eight.
Oh, sorry, did you think I meant the four bodies that were missing already? Sorry to deceive.
Nope, these are four completely new bodies.
We got the call when the landlady received complaints of a foul odor on the fourth floor, and then a neighbor on the third floor reported something leaking through the floorboards above her. When she went to go check it out, this was what she found. Those bodies had to be at least three days old, though how they got there I couldn't tell you.
I didn't even know what to expect when I went to go and investigate. When I saw the scene, let me tell you, I haven't thrown up on the job yet, but this threatened to break the streak I had going for me. These bodies were carved up like jack-o-lanterns on Halloween. From the looks, I'd say anywhere between a ten-inch blade and a machete. The one girl was hollowed out completely, just skin and bones and a lot of blood. The guys are just as bad, but I'll spare those of you with a weak constitution the details.
I couldn't tell on glance who they were, and DNA hasn't come in with results yet. But on glance, I don't think- think being the key word- that they're any of the kids already missing. Just a hunch, but there's at least three guys and one girl here; different ratio. The girl may be Krell or Albright and one of the guys may be Ford. Again, I don't know yet. But what I do know is that none of them are Eric.
At least there's one bit of good news.
And of course, there's a message waiting for us. This time, all it said was “SMHARTUOYESEI” and then “TOO LATE” written underneath that.
That really makes me freaking hopeful.
I can't even write any more. My mind just exploded at this. How do you sneak four bodies into an apartment without anyone seeing them or hearing the commotion? Piece by piece? Or did they go in through the window off the fire escape? Are they just mocking us now, or are they sending a warning that more of this will follow?
We've finally got bodies stacking up, and it just makes everything worse.
What else is new?
