Some text redacted from FBI report.
10:44 AM March 5, 1981: FBI investigators arrive on the scene. TIMELINE report: Retrocognitive viewing shows victim active sometime between 10:00 PM and 2:00 AM. Observed strange phenomenon related to victim’s eyes, which appeared to have strange grayish-purple smoke or flames emanating from them. After a period of intense activity, victim collapses in the same position as it was discovered by Reporting Witness. Viewing also shows the presence of a second individual present at the scene. This individual is between six-feet and six-feet-four-inches tall and wearing cold-weather clothing the prevented visual identification.
Investigator OUTLANDER discovered tracks likely belonging to the second individual leading toward Highway 37. Also discovered tire tracks on the shoulder of Highway 37, likely belonging to three-wheeled, all-terrain vehicle. TIMELINE Retrocognitive viewing confirms unidentified individual—likely male based on height and gait—rode three-wheeled, all-terrain vehicle away from scene on Highway 37 back toward Bedford.
12:37 PM: Examination of the victim’s personal effects revealed camping equipment, $372 in cash, and road maps of llinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, and Missouri. The Indiana road map appears to have been purchased at a service station on Highway 50 near the Indiana/Illinois border.
9:17 PM: Local Sheriff contacts FBI investigators to inform them that two additional bodies have been reported.
9:32 PM: FBI investigators arrive at scene of inactive limestone quarry where bodies were discovered. Chad Davis (16) and Michelle Cray (15) (Second Reporting Witnesses) discovered the bodies of Brian Parker (18) and Marcus Truford (17). Both victims are residents of Bedford and attend Bedford North Lawrence High School. Bodies exhibit apparent bone and tissue damage consistent with physical altercation with an unusual absence of blood loss.
TIMELINE report: Retrocognitive viewing reveals both victims displaying similar phenomenon as previous victim. Victims participating in physical altercation but not exhibiting normal human reaction to blows. Altercation continues until Parker collapses. After two to three seconds of inactivity, Marcus collapses. Unidentified figure from previous crime scene also present in viewing, similarly concealed by heavy clothing and darkness. Pushing perception further back in time, both victims seen diving Parker’s car with the eye phenomenon already occurring. Earliest viewing shows both victims in Parker’s residence.
Using Parker’s keys as a focus, TIMELINE views further back and sees both victims without eye phenomenon exhibiting normal human affect and behavior. They appear to be home alone in Parker’s family home. Eventually Parker walks over and opens the rear door to the house. A succession of projectiles impact Parker’s chest—visibly quite similar to the smoke/flame phenomenon observed on victims’ eyes. He reacts as if in pain but the projectiles do not appear to exert kinetic force. When Parker falls, similar projectiles strike Truford until he falls.
OUTLANDER acquires unidentified figure’s scent and is confident he will be able to identify the figure by scent.
7:00AM March 6, 1981: CORTEX, OUTLANDER, and TIMELINE interview Carl Thompson, coach of the Bedford North Lawrence High School basketball team. Thompson reports that students that are members of sports teams have permanent lockers while other students are not assigned lockers. OUTLANDER is unable to track the suspect by scent to a specific locker, but does confirm that the suspect was recently present. Thompson provides a list of faculty and staff with access to the locker room.
8:00AM: DR. CAFFEY interviews Bryan Lauder of Lawrence County Animal Control regarding recent reports of missing animals or animal carcasses without a clear cause of death. Lauder reports that he has not seen any recent increase in the number of missing animal cases or any unusual deaths reported.
The rest of the investigators attend the Bedford North Lawrence High School assembly in which the faculty announce to the assembled students the deaths of Parker and Truford. Visual surveillance of the gathered students fails to reveal anyone exhibiting an unusual reaction to the news.
11:00AM: The investigators are notified that a student Sarah York (16) was sent to the Vice Principal after her teacher discovered drawings celebrating the deaths of Parker and Truford among her possessions. CORTEX interviews York and discovers that she was the victim of a sexual assault commited by Parker and Truford in 1979. The only other person aware of the assault was her neighbor, Gordon Hughes. TIMELINE checks the attendance records supplied by school administration and discovers that Hughes is not at school.
11:30AM: DR. CAFFEY conducts surveillance on the Hughes’ residence and discovers that Gordon’s parents are afflicted with the same phenomenon TIMELINE witnessed in his retrocognitive viewings. The team teleports into the house and subdues the subject. The parents are already deceased.
