The following is part of the current list of anomalies that have occured in Loissianna or more specifically New Orleans. They have been Recorded and still under investigation, anyone investigating in the New Orleans are should report any anomoly ASAP.
Call me Hardshell. . .
I’m a professional.
My name is Jesse Cobb. I’m a cop, an inspector.
I’m an outcast again, a problem cast out of his home like troubled teen.
I used to work in a much better district, but as part of my most recent punishment I’ve been demoted to New Orlean’s Highest crime area, Working one of the worst cases in my life.
Zodiac, named for the infamous serial killer Zodiac kills, dumps, and chooses his victims all by methods of astrology.
This method is slowly revealing itself, and making him very predictable. The FBI has been closing in on this case, but if we can catch this asshole tonight we won’t have to let the bureaucrats take all the credit.
Now in the alleyway outside the warehouse I see a haunch figure darting behind a corner, so I pursue.
And I think of the strangeness in the last message:
“Ah, children of light, Neon and sun, how little you know of the world around you! The death of the keeper comes nigh… and his mangled and carved flesh will rot in his merchant’s keep!”
This was typical of him. The last time he used the phrase merchant’s keep a body was found in a warehouse. The last time he killed in this sign it was in this precinct. There were four warehouses that stored Neon lights and we were watching this one. The strangest thing of this killer was how he tore absolutely everything out his kills.
Our boys took a look at the bodies and said it would take four hours in a sandpaper drum 10′ by 10′ after being eviscerated to cause that kind of damage.
I’m no genius but considering these same guys can’t figure out how they built the pyramids I don’t think this was the method.
I think it was effort.
I noticed something out of the corner of my eye.
It was a human figure covered in shadow. I lay my hand on my pistol.
I start to call for backup, But I decide against it, the possibility of scaring off my watcher was to great.
Besides, I don’t think I’ve ever called for backup before
I keep watching, waiting, it has no reason to move and so it doesn’t.
I approach but as I do I shine a flashlight in it’s direction and the figure freezes, but in that same instant, dissolves into the pavement…
“Damn,” I mutter.
I wait a while longer and after a moment see the figure again.
There was no mistaking it this time. I saw it again, It rose in the same spot it had fallen before and I remember the stories my grandfather told me of the flat.
An Appalachian story of a man creature that could become as flat as it could and those who go to see it’s disappearance wind up wrapped and strangled by the thing.
It must have been an actor, I think to myself shaking off my superstition.
It sure knew how to be dead. It wore a coat with no shirt and it’s figure was squated down in front of me. It’s coat hung at his sides, exposing his ribs. His chest was far too prominent and his stomach sunken in.
I approached it again. this time it jumped at me.
We grapple to the ground as his head thrashes madly at me, biting.
I pull my gun but he grabs it from my hand and fires a shot into my chest.
The shot echoes across the alley and the creature takes off.
No, not creature; suspect.
I somehow pull myself off of the floor and purcue the creature into the warehouse.
“Jesse Hardshell Cobbs was found wounded and uresponsive in the Lumni Warehouse building last night.
He had apparently been involved in a confrontation with the Zodiac Killer as wounds covered his face and body as well as a gunshot wound to the chest. A corpse was found near him with multiple gushot wounds to the chest, however police say it is impossible for this to be the Zodiac Killer as the corpse was already in stages of decomposition and matches that of a man who died weeks before the Zodiac murders started.
The body obviosly was removed from it’s grave during a prior flood in the south Louissianna area, how it arrived in the warehouse is yet unnexplained as Jesse Cobb will not speak of what happened after he pursued the suspect into the building.
