Samuel Fisherman
Joe Catcher
(Portchester)
“Old Henry Kreetcher” is missing; last seen on Sept 29th afternoon. He did not meet them at the bar that night, which is unlike him. They sent a street boy that evening, and another the following day, to fetch him; but neither has returned. They fear there may be something nefarious happening. Henry Kreetcher is a known drunk, and street boys are unreliable. This report will be ignored until more conclusive information is provided.

Peter Notice
Sam Brond
Richard Gene
(Portchester)
3 men missing in the Portchester district: their fathers, Pete, Samuel, and Lionel, respectively. The men went missing on the 1st, 5th, and 8, respectively. When asked why they waited so long to report, they each stated that their fathers were on in years, and would occasionally “sleep one off” on the streets and return home in a day or two. Mr. Gene, however, is a religious non-drinker, and has never gone missing; this, and the fact that the others have not been found yet, prompted today’s report. Currently, all Inspectors are over-scheduled. They will be re-prioritized should the individuals remain missing.

Brian Sumpter Jr.
(Portchester)
Bradley Sumpter Sr. has gone missing; last seen on 10/12 at 9pm. Bradley Sumpter is a known philanderer, in spite of his age, and is known to have made more than a couple enemy husbands. An Inspector will be re-prioritized to do a day of interviews as a cursory investigation. Extended re-prioritization will depend upon the results of these interview.

Abbot Sneed
Portchester)
Elizabeth Snead missing; last seen on 10/15 at 10pm. She was seen by neighbors walking out of her home at midnight in her nightgown; seemingly sleep walking, heading towards the woods. The neighbor was not present, and did not want their name given. Richard threatened to take this information to the press, since the matter is, as he put it “obviously being ignored”. The woman’s actions clearly show the effects of senility, and she most likely fell prey to wild animals. Obviously, these incidents, though tragic, are coincidental and due to old age and senility brought on by the oncoming cold weather. Further investigations into these matter are currently suspended.

Both women appear to have been disemboweled through a large opening ripped into the stomach. The bodies have been taken to the coroner for further investigation.

Clinton Reever
(Portchester)
Four young boys have gone missing in Portchester. He came alone, stating that residence didn’t want to “waste their time, since the police won’t do nothing anyway”. He was highly agitated, insisting that Inspectors be sent immediately to investigate, as each boys has gone missing only a few days apart: Oct 1, Oct 4, Oct 8, and Oct 11. He stated: “I remember, when I was just 7, how the police ignored the murder of my friend’s father, Cliff Phister, and disappearance of my own father, Dog Reever. Yet immediately started investigating when problems started happening in Fairfield.” His tone bordered on threatening, but since he is still a young boy of only 14, he was not arrested but simply warned about his tone and given an opportunity to calm down. But he would not leave until promised that an Inspector will be dispatched to investigate. An Inspector will be sent to investigate as soon as one can be re-prioritized from current assignments.

Carl Blanchard
(Fairfield)
