Reports for 2002
Case Number: 020129-203147H
Date: January 29, 2002
Type of Incident: Homicide
On January 29, 2002, my partner and I responded to Grant Park to investigate the report of a dead body. When we arrived at the scene, we quickly proceeded to the rose garden where we found Mr. Jacob Friedman waiting for us. Mr. Friedman was very agitated as he pointed us to the corpse that he had found as he was jogging that morning. My partner took down Mr. Friedman's personal information and his initial statement which will be attached to this report. I investigated the area and marked it off to preserve the crime scene. Lying in the center of an area swept free of any footprints was the body of a caucasian male. There was little blood in the area. Hair seen beneath the split skin revealed him to be some kind of lycanthrope. The body was nude and severed in several places, even sliced in half at an angle. Torso was separated from the hips and legs. An arm was removed and it was decapitated. I couldn't tell if all of the pieces were accounted for because there were entrails and organs hanging in the tree overhead. Two other units arrived to help secure the scene until the evidence technicians arrived. My partner and I returned to headquarters with Mr. Friedman to take his full statement.

Evidence Technician's Report Tape
Transcript as follows: (reported in a Texas drawl)
This is Hank McAllister, RP-it Forensics. We've got ourselves a body. Male. Caucasian. Rat lycanthrope, most likely. Further tests will determine the veracity of my hypothesis. Nude. Decapitated, severed. Dumped in the rose garden at Grant Park, but not killed there. Body shows some indication of damage from the cold, but only after death. Little blood is left in the corpse. It has been severed in half on the horizontal at a downward angle of close to 45 degrees. Torso separated from hips and legs. One arm removed. The organs were taken from the cut that severed the body as there are no other external wounds in the torso area. Rather cleanly done as if someone knew what they were doing. Edges are somewhat rough, indicating the possible use of something serrated. Maybe a band saw. All intestines are removed and hanging from the oak tree that lies four yards away from the dump site. All of the pieces seem to be accounted for except… one finger is missing. The pinky from the severed arm is gone. And one of the eyes has been gouged from the head and taken as well. The area surrounding the body and the tree in question has been thoroughly examined and there are few traces of evidence. I will wrap the entrails and limbs in plastic before cutting them down to preserve anything that might otherwise fall during the process. The body will be removed and taken to the coroner's office for further examination where I will collect fingerprints from the remaining fingers to try to determine the identity of the victim. The coroner's office will determine time of death and the exact cause as well as try to figure out how long this guy's been in the snow. I tried to lift some of the swept snow to find a covered footprint, but they did a damned good job of covering their tracks.
Reports for 2004
Shortly after midnight on Friday August 20th 2004, Mr. Wade O'Bannion has reported that while walking on the beach along Lake Shore Drive, Mr. Ezekiel Kincaid drew a previously concealed pistol and aimed it at Wade without provocation before concealing it again. Mr. O'Bannion has retained legal counsel for this, and the lawyer is making it known that Mr. O'Bannion expects reasonable actions to be taken immediately.
According to Mr. O'Bannion, Ms. Aislinn Greystone was a witness to the event.
From Pyotr D. Zagadaka, a short while after midnight, Wednesday September 8th, 2004.
At roughly midnight I was coming out of my smithy into my gallery when I encountered a large man, a vampire by the way my Crosses I had on display nearby were glowing. I believed he was a customer as I have a few regular Vampire customers. He told me he had been sent to deal with me and I believed he meant professionally. But he clarified this by saying he was there to take care of me because I had been 'causing trouble for his people'. He ran at me then and I struck him as hard as I could with my smithing hammer. Then as he recovered I started pulling crosses off the wall and tossing them at him, each one burning him. Finally he picked up and throw two of my display cases at me, hitting me partially once and fully the second time. I don't remember you doing it but I believe I threw as many of my knives as I could at him. I am not trained in their throwing but I believe I must have struck him a few times before he fled down the street and I was too weak from blood loss to do anything but call nine one one. The vampire was nearly seven feet tall and sported a military style buzzcut, platinum blonde and has blue-grey eyes.
RPIT Officer Aliah Prescott was the one to report on the scene, take the statement, and assist Mr.Zagadka to the Northwestern Memorial Hospital from his Forge at 3261 LaSalle Ave. A rather timid priest from Our Lady of Lourdes apparently was just outside one of the shop windows, about to enter the Forge at the time until he felt discretion as the better part of valor. His story backs up that of Mr.Zagadka.
Note: For those wondering what resulted from this? Mr. Wade O'Bannion and Mr. Ezekiel Kincaid have restraining orders against each other. In addition, Mr.Kincaid can no longer possess nor bear any sorts of firearms for the next five years (until late 2009), although he -is- still allowed to own and operate Monolith Security, and the other employees of Monolith Securities are allowed to be in possession of firearms (as long as they are carried unloaded, unconcealed, and in a case) .
On the evening of November 21st, 2004, Officer James McDoty reported locating a body chained to weights at the bottom of Lake Michigan, a mile out from the mainland, off the shore of Wavecrest Island. The RPIT and preter-med techs reported to the scene, hoisting up a vampire in a fairly decrepit state. The individual has been sent to Northwestern Memorial Hospital and stationed for care in the Awakening Room in the Basement, with notification sent to the local Ulfric (due to the Lukoi involvement with Wavecrest Island in the past), self-proclaimed Fey Maharajah Sahil (due to the Fey involvement with Wavecrest Island in the present), and Master of the City Satine (since it's one of her kind).
Reports for 2005
The evening of October 19th, 2005, the Morgan Preternatural Clinic on Western Ave in Bridgeport was the target of hate-crime arson. According to the front-desk secretary and security cameras, the assailant in conjunction with two drivers tossed two burning bottles of a kerosene/gasoline mix into the lobby, shouting anti-lycan claims. When the fire and security alarms went off, Dr.Raphael Maestroangelo, Ms.Erin Altice, and Mr.Austin Roberts (who were in the building at the time) subdued the flames with extinguishers resulting in minimal structural damage.
It is suggested that officers interview the three about any details they may have to recount, as well as checking with Monolith Security (Mr.Ezekiel Kincaid and Ms.Rowen Kincaid), the maintainers of the Clinic's security and monitor system.
Made at 1:50 PM, November 2nd.
A male voice hastily tells the 911 operator, "Hello… Police… help! Help…" <sounds of running> "My.. my girlfriend is being beaten up!! I'm at… Starved Rock State Park! In the canyon. They're gonna kill her! Send help now!! I gotta go.. they're coming for me!!"
The attempts to locate the source pin it as being in the area of the Starved Rock State Park, outside of Utica
After the morgue examined the remains of Officer Dwayne Rightcliff (OOC: See +bbread 2 from RL July 30th), it was determined to most likely be an attack by a ghoul. There had been a series of ghoul-related incidents in late 2003/early 2004 around the Lake Michigan area, but they had seemingly come to a conclusion as mysteriously as they had begun. It is believed that given the proximity of Lincoln Park to the lake, as well as the park's former use as a cemetery in previous decades, that this might somehow be associated.
Officer Gutierrez met up with the only named witness, Gene Johanson, at his pub, The Wyld Hunt. He gave a description of a suspect, male, 5'8"-5'9". "Sounded Caucasian". Suspect was wearing a "hood and a mask" and tossed what appeared to be two vodka bottles with rags tucked into them, lit, in the middle of the dancefloor. Suspect yelled, "Burn you devil spawn, burn." The fled the scene. Mr. Johanson said the bottles were malatov cocktails, he believed. Witness named two other witnesses. Dauphine McGuire, owner of Tower of Song, his companion at the bar. The other, named only as J.C. showed up after people had fled. Follow up needed for both. Witness also said he could "gleen information from objects if help is needed."
Case Type : Homicide by Preternatural Taken by: John Glass
Jake Derrick reported that a Sanura Sinclair had been murdered approxiamately one month earlier. He said he witnessed the killing by a werewolf of the name of Raphael Maestroangelo. Another witness he mentioned was with Maestroangelo, by the name of Austin. The murder took place somewhere in Starved Rock State Park in a valley in the park. The term Ulfric was used, that Maestroangelo was the Ulfric or king of one of the packs, and Sinclair was the king of another one. Maestroangelo is trying to merge the packs according to Derrick.
Missing Persons Report of Sanura Sinclair. Assigned to John Glass and Maria Gutierrez. Exchanged information, went to get warrants to pull phone records for Masteroangelo, Derrick, Austin (if a last name is found), Sinclair, and the one who called in the missing persons case.
While responding to the protest at the Church of Eternal Life, a doctor and assistant were sent ahead of the ambulances. The Doctor was Raphael Masteroangelo and his assistant was Austin Roberts. Both work at the Morgan Clinic, Roberts says he lives there. Masteroangelo drives an Italian sports car with plate # of XXX-XXX. Currently, I am using the names and information to dig up more background information on both Masteroangelo and Roberts. The rangers of the Park have been contacted, asking to look for any remains of Sinclair.
Update on the Sanura Sinclair case
Maeve and John have exchanged the information they had, John sharing the phone records and Maeve sharing the 911 call and such. John has also come up with some more names to check out, as well as is asking for a search warrant for Sanura's home. Andrew Boner..might be deceased. Daniel, no last name yet. The place in the park where it took place is called a Lupanar, and it is in the Devestation State Park (or whichever its called here..Devestated..Devestarted..). As a note to the player, he is looking for pictures of Sanura wearing a choker collar with a heart on it. He, at this point, is hoping he can catch someone else wearing that collar now. As far as how he got this information..he isn't to open on it, only saying it can be trusted.
Update on the Sanura Sinclair case
I questioned Mr. Andrew Bonnor and Ms. Sisika Goldwing. Mr. Bonnor was one of those called from Ms. Sinclair's cell phone the night of J.D.'s 911 call following the murder. Neither had much information, Mr. Bonnor stating that he has not heard from or seen Ms. Sinclair, with whom he had a close friendship with. He also confirmed that J.D. seemed upset, and told him that Ms. Sinclair had been murdered. Mr. Bonnor what not at the park the night of the murder, and he seemed to regret that he could not be of more help. He did say, before I left, that he believes we are heading in the right direction.
Reports for 2006
APB on a Sword and Gunman
To all Departments. Dispatch has released an All Points Bulletin for the following individual. There was a man today out in public with some sort of sword scaring the normals. he has black, snow white like black hair, somewhat of an Aryan/Nazi facial features.a scar from his left eye to his mouth, green eyes and a black pinstripe suit, over which he wears a riding cape, boots and a burgundy tie. He was last seen entering and leaving the Seventh House Cafe. Any unit seeing this individual are to immediately detain this individual for questioning. Consider this individual to be armed and dangerous.
Interview: Ivanya Kozlova (File #XXX-XXXXX-X-RPIT)
Time Start: 4:30 PM End: 5:07 PM
Location: Public dining area, Seventh House cafe, 196 Grand Street, Chicago
Kozlova was in the kitchen of the cafe when I arrived, and two young women with name tags reading 'Rae' and 'Judy' (see Description section following) were at the counter. I identified myself to Rae, and Judy went to the kitchen and brought Kozlova out. Kozlova and I spoke at a table in the restaurant. Her answers were given without hesitation. No vocal stress detected and no change in affect, though it must be noted that she is a known, registered vampire of indeterminate but likely lengthy age and experience who likely has good control over her expression of emotional states.
Interview: Koslova reported no threat or incident as was described by the informant on Friday evening, 01-06-2006. She did say that her "fencing instructor" had visited that evening while only she and Judy were in the cafe and that he did carry a sword "in a case." She said that to her knowledge he was not armed. She gave this man's first name as 'Hanse' and claims to know no last name, nor to have any contact information except that he may live at "Twilight Haven." The description she volunteered matches the subject in the APB.
Koslova freely admitted that she did not know the man well, but offered no explanation of why she would be taking "fencing lessons" from him except that she had heard that "he had skill with a blade." She also referred to the "little white outfits" worn while fencing, which is an unusual and not very consistent way of describing the full body suit, gloves and mask worn while fencing. In response to my comment after I had formally "ended" the interview, she said that they practiced "in another part of the cafe… behind the storage area." The building upon a cursory examination does not appear to be large enough to have an area suitable for fencing.
Conclusions: Koslova was, to all appearances, cooperative, but it seems unlikely that she would engage someone to teach her to use a sword without having a full name or contact information for that person. Her "white outfits" comment may have been joking, but it was an odd non sequitur that might reveal a lack of knowledge inconsistent with her other answers. She also quickly spoke to the young women behind the counter at my initial question about the incident, asking if they had heard of it and receiving, after she had said "no," the same response from them. I conclude that Koslova is not being forthcoming about this man or his activities.
I would recommend that, in addition to checking the information about "Hanse" that was provided, we approach the young woman Judy again during the day when Koslova is not active and ask for her unprompted recollection of the evening. I did not do this at this interview because I did not want to arouse Koslova's suspicions. I did give Koslova my contact card if she had any other to give at a later date.
(The next section gives a close to verbatim account of Koslova's answers, and the last gives physical descriptions of the building and the three women.)
Western Avenue Explosions
Report Filed by Detective Gavin Howell -
Officer was off duty and responded to a dispatch call for units at Western Avenue, explosions and shots fired. When I arrived on the scene, US Marshall Jack Green was already on site along with dispatched fire crews.
While the Preternatural Clinic burned fire crews could not attend to the flames due to an unknown assailant with a rifle firing down into the street to keep them away from the building. The shooter successfully held us pinned down until local SWAT arrived on the scene and sweeped the building side. It was at that time Marshal Green and I climbed to the rooftop of the shooter's building while the fire crews attended to the clinic.
We were unable to apprehend the shooter when he set off an explosive device, what I suspect to be a grenade and killed himself from the resulting explosion. <Insert shooter descrption> was also wearing what appeared to be Army Commando-style gear which appears it could have been readily purchased at any surplus store in the area
Before the scene could be localized a preternatural wolf jumped from the 3rd story of the clinic as it was being engulfed and landed an the Action 2 News team's van and proceeded to escape into an alleyway. The US Marshal and I at that time left the current crime scene and went in pursuit.
We trailed the preternatural to where it stopped fleeing and ran into it and a woman known as Breena. From that point a Doctor Raphael Maestroangelo was summoned to attend to the wolf's injuries. Marshal Green returned to the street to oversee the scene cleanup and control and while I remained with the preturnatural wolf and the woman.
When the Doctor arrived he introduced himself as the head of the clinic and after we had relocated the wolf to a place where he could be healed I was able to question the Doctor to a limited degree the wolf. Both parties when questioned had informed me that an unusual man going by the name Jake, with the initials J.D, has had an animosity towards the clinic for some time and are familiar with his appearance. They said he is a non-descript looking man in appearance with short military-style hair and talks like he is an ex-something. Other than this person neither, who claim to have lived at the clinic has identified any unknown or suspicious persons in the area. They were both cooperative in the questioning and have readily agreed to cooperate as we require in this investigation.
Another update on the Sinclair case
Entered by M.McIntyre. January 14th, 2006
The house Sanura Sinclair resided in has been searched by myself, Maeve McIntyre, and Detective John Glass. Upon searching the house, DNA samples belonging to both Ms. Sinclair and Mr. Jake Derrick were obtaned from the house, along with a photograph of Ms. Sinclair wearing the necklace mentioned in earlier case commens by Glass.
Also found was a planner, with a meeting metioned with one 'Raphael M.' on November 2nd. This appears to be the time Ms. Sinclair disappeared. Upon returning to the lab, I compared the DNA we collected to that of the bone fragment Detective Glass received from the black dog. It is a match to Sanura Sinclair's.
Currently, Dr. Raphael Maestroangelo is also connected to another case, please see file on the Morgan Clinic firebombing.
Clinic Bombing Update
Report: Clinic Bombing Update
Filed by Detective Gavin Howell
The identity of the attacker on the roof has been confirmed as one John Oliver (picture included). To date his fingerprints have not been identified with any other unknown crimes and he has no listed priors. The weapon he was using off the rooftop has yielded no leads from ballistics comparisons in AFIS and the serial numbers were removed with no way to recover them.
The fire investigation teams have determined that the explosive used on the clinic was not a timed device but something like a molotov cocktail homebrewed with the added addition of styrofoam to give it a sticky intense burning quality akin to Napalm. Upon inspection we have also learned that the water to the clinic was not working or shut off which prevented fire safety systems from working properly. This evidence here leads me to believe that John Oliver was not alone and had a partner or accomplice in the bombing of the clinic.
Next there was no security devices inside the clinic but they did subscribe to a monitoring service. I plan on following up with the service so information is pending. I am also doing a further look into the person of John Oliver to see what turns up.
Lastly, in an interview with the owner of the clinic, no new information pertaining to this case was revealed. The Doctor confirmed a working fire safety system and no knowledge of or association with John Oliver.
Sword Gun Case
Case - XXXX-xxx-XXXXX
Det. Mac Douglas
Due to the statement of the owner not supporting some kind of tip that has not been unconfirmed, and having no hard evidence it is a continued waste of the resources of this department to look into an anonymous tip that was most likely a prank. This case has no legal standpoint and is therefore closed.
Concerning Case #06-30-MC
Concering locating the, "older man past 50 with sharp features. He's described as thin with large intense blue eyes, a sharp nose, thin mouth and jet black short hair. He is not overly tan nor vampiric dead looking but in between making him caucasian. One picture has the man with a crucifix around his neck and a second picture a black wide brimmed hat. His clothing was described as being all black.", note that there's a slew of security-cameras about downtown Chicago (as covered by the 'Command Computer' code in the Command Center of the police station). It's a safe assumption that they've pictures of folks they're looking for right there by the monitors, so should someone fitting that description head into one of the 14 camera-aimed grid-rooms, it'd be safe to say he was spotted so y'all can dash over there.
Vampiric Powers Abuse Victim
Doctor Mary Jane Faulkaiesen has filed a statement with myself, Sergeant John Glass, stating that a vampire rolled her against her will. She claims that this vampire used his powers to force her to feel an emotion as well as pull personal information from her. She did not give permission for this, nor was she a willing party to this. She did not know this person was a vampire until he used his power on her. She says that the vampire's name is Amun, and his description is as follows.
His hair was coal black that was cropped short and functional, while holding to it some sense of style - it still reaches no lower than the base of his neck. Here and there a hint of gray, hard-worn testaments of life. His brows are thin, and just as dark, arching over eyes of chocolate color that have seen more life than the thirty-something appearance would otherwise suggest. The lines radiating out from his eyes speak of long hours squinting, being more pronounced than those faint touches at the corners of his mouth. His build is medium, and even his height not terribly impressive, being an average of 5'10". The only things remarkable about the man are the hawkish nose and the skin of a pale, almost polished, gold. I think tonight he wore a sweater of cashmere across his torso, a dark gray thing with woven patterns that fits loosely, casually, across his shoulders. The neck is piled high and loose, a mock-turtleneck, and even the cuffs at the wrists are left loose about his skin. The sweater overlaps a pair of black slacks, their front pleated and their ends in turn overlapping the black leather loafers that the man wears on his feet.
This statement and the files pertaining to it are being turned over to the DA for prosecution.
Cases #06-28-PA & #06-31-VM
After an extended review by the Mayor's office (and supposedly Mayor Jason Karoda himself), it is looking like there is not sufficient evidence in the 'Dr.Faulkaiesen vs Amun' case for a charge of magical malfeasance. Unless there are witnesses (both on-site and/or character witnesses) who can provide further testimony, it appears to be nothing more than a domestic disturbance. A fine against Mr.Amun and perhaps a restraining order between the two parties seems the best course of action.
Following an inquiry into the matter, "Amun vs Officer Glass" apparently stemmed from a misinformed dispatcher providing Officer Glass with faulty information (IE: not specifying what form of warrant was outstanding against the vampire 'Amun'). It is agreed that Detective Howell's suggestion seems the best course of action, with Officer Glass on two month suspension and a refresher course in police procedure. The dispatcher in question shall be suspended indefinitely.
The office of Mayor Karoda will withhold presuming anything about "Amun vs Ember & Mr.Smith", or any of the patrons (or owner) of the Wyld Hunt vs Amun until formal charges have been filed, statements taken, et cetera. The office of Mayor Karoda would also like to thank the members of the Chicago Police Department for their patience and vigilance in these matters.
911 Faux Call
At roughly 2130, I had a 911 call forwarded to my phone. At that time, I was at the hiking trials in Lincoln Park, attending another scene.
I immediately responded, proceeding with Officer Terrance Jesus to Grand Street; East, near the Upstart Crow bookstore. We shortly encountered Mister Silverstein, who was alledging that Agent Cian, from the Bureau of Human and Frey affairs, was abducting Miss Nora Donnelly. Upon questioning Agent Cian's and Miss Donnelly's intent, it was shortly revealed that these two have been friends for a period of time and that she was going willingly with Agent Cian.
To avoid confusion, I did sight Agent Cian's official identification. I did, however, give Mister Silverstein a brief lecture on the use of 911 and how it wastes tax payers money and also how it could have risked a life.
All parties cooperated and there were no problems.
Detective Brandon C. Vincess.
Assigned To: Officer Finnigan
NOTES: 08/09/06 Late Evening on August 8th, 2006, a call went out requesting RPIT back up off the north End of Lake Shore Drive stating that assistance was needed with a shifter that appeared to be 'eating the remains of something that was once alive'.
Upon arriving at the scene I found Officer Maria Gutierrez with her service revolver drawn on a Leopard Shifter hiding behind a dumpster. After firing a dart loaded with acepromazine at the subject and missing, he fled. He had been consuming a ham. Still feeling that the suspect was out of control and an immediate threat to the community, I fired another shot and then persued until the drug began to take effect. The suspect was subdued and put into foreleg silver irons, only to begin mutilating himself. I had Officer Guiterrez radio for more back up and when they arrived the suspect was completely subdued with rear leg irons as well. Once the scene was controlled, I ordered the suspect to be taken into custody and placed into a containment cell.
Four hours later, I visited the suspect in his cell. He was still in his animal form. I offered food and left to return later when he had shifted back.
I found the suspect, who has been identified as a boy named Jeremy, in distress. A medical team was called in to sedate the suspect, tend to his injuries and start an IV to rehydrate him. I left to allow the suspect time to recooperated and come to his senses.
When I returned a few hours later, I found him belligerent and uncooperative, flipping between violent outbursts and fits of sobbing. At one point, he hurled a large piece of medical equipment against his cage bars, shattering it. I asked him, on several occasions, who I should call for him and he refused to answer. It is, my opinion, that at this time, the suspect is mentally unstable and cannot be released until a respectable member of the shifter community that is willing to take on the responsibility of assuring public safety in regards to the suspect can be located.
I left word with the medical team caring for him that I was to be contacted if he calmed down and seemed ready to cooperate with our efforts to locate his guardian and sort out the situation.

Riddler Murderer: #02-28-RM
The Riddler seemed to strike without rhyme or reason. No one was safe from becoming a victim. His first was a woman named Clarice Arnold, a 28 year old single mother of two. Approximately 28 hours after Maeve McIntyre recieved a severed pinky finger, obviously female, and a hand written note in the form of a riddle, Clarice's body was found wrapped in a new white sheet. An annonymous tip, made from a pre-paid cellular phone, led police to her body. It was located in a shed behind a house that had been on the market for months.
Over the following three weeks, there were three more victims. One an elderly widow with no children, one a male cardiologist, and one a teenaged girl that was abuducted on her way home from school. In each case there was a riddle and a personal belonging/body part delivered to Maeve McIntyre approximately 26-28 hours before an annonymous tip led police to the bodies. In each case the victims had only been dead two to four hours indicating that the killer was keeping to his word when a twenty four hour time frame was mentioned in each of the riddles.
The big break came with the fifth victim. The riddle was solved and let police to the University Campus. The fifth victim was found alive in the boiler room of the Pyschology department. A vampire named Marcus Arlington was apprehended on the scene and charged with the murders. He never said a word to deny or confirm his guilt. The forensic evidence nailed him to the wall on the charges, but there were many unanswered questions as it seemd that Arlington was in two places at one time during more than one instance during the investigation into the murders. The case, however, has been considered closed.

Warrant for a Vampire
An Execution warrant comes in over the usual channels from high command….
The vampire known as "Todd" has been found guilty of Mind-Rolling without consent of the victim. Frequent hangouts include Something Wicked and bars in the Crimson District. Police are to approach subject with extreme caution until a licensed Executioner can serve justice. He is to be considered dangerous. "Cowboy" police work will not be tolerated and will result in permaent dismissal. High Command states clearly that this is the work for an Executioner and the team he selects, not the job of individual officers. Officers are to call for back up, if the subject is seen.
