Location: The Lake June 28th 9:53PM
Riley laid on her back looking up at the sun as it was starting to set for the evening, she always tried her best to try and spend the warmest days up by the lake and stayed there pretty much until the sun set. It was always rather relaxing to her as she watched it started to get darker and darker, slowly getting herself up by the time the sun was completely down. The stars were already out by then it was also very beautiful. As Riley gathered her things she started to make her way down the trail that led back to town, then she started to hear a rather low growling sound. Looking around as she brought out her flashlight she didn't see anything, then she jumped when she heard some wrestling sounds in the nearby bushes.
Her mother always started to worry about her when things started to get dark and she was out by the lake, she then heard another low growling sound. There were more wolf sightings in the last few weeks and some livestock were killed as well, this was starting to terrify her as she started to run. She could feel her heart starting to beat faster and faster, Riley caught a glimpse of a figure nearby in the woods. But she couldn't figure what it was it was way to dark now.
Riley then cried out when she tripped over a tree root sticking out of the ground, looking over she saw her ankle was at an odd angle and badly bruised. Groaning in pain she tried to get up and then she heard a howl this time, quickly trying to find where it came from she saw a deer in front of her before it ran off as if it was spooked by something she tried to snap a picture. Then she felt something grabbing her by the legs and started to scream as she was dragged off, the only thing left behind was her phone.
It has been a rather long week, normally everyone would have been getting their grills out ready to do some BBQ for the fourth of July, however the town has been rocked for the last week. Riley Walker was found missing when she never returned the next day, her family and almost everyone was spending their time looking for the girl. And early this morning they had just found the mayor Andrew Ryder, brutally mauled to death, with a warning painted in his blood saying. "This is our land, the next full moon more will go missing and more will die." All along the crime scene there were what looked to be paw prints also in Andrew's blood, and they quickly just disappeared after a few feet away.
Sherif Eric Bradley stood in front of the podium in front of the police station, there was a news conference going on, as the man leaned up against the podium. "I assure you we are doing our very best to try and figure all of this out." Eric answered as he sighed rubbing the bridge of his nose, a missing girl and now a dead mayor this wasn't something he was used to. The other officers stood behind him, Red Lake never had a murder at least not in a very long time, looking over at the FBI agent that was standing next to him and then motioning for her to speak next.

Jeanna stood among the rest of the deputies of Red Lake, she was originally there in town to help out find out what had happened to Riley Walker then a week later she was now dragged into finding out what or who killed Andrew Ryder. She had just talked with the man the night before, before she had called it a night asking about what he knew about the girl and if he had any clues for her. She had only been in town for about three days now, having been on other cases before this town certainly didn't have the full resources that she needed for the investigation.
When Eric motioned for her to speak she sighed slightly, one thing she hated was to talk in front of the crowd looking towards Eric she gave him a slight smile before turning her attention towards the crowd in front of her. "Like Sheriff Bradley has said we are looking into both scenes, and if they have a possible connection between the two." Jeanna said as she looked among the crowd seeing their faces, she could tell that this wasn't something normal for them to see.
"I promise I will get to the end of this and make sure that this does not continue. And if anyone has any leads please do not hesitate to step forward." Jeanna said as she ran a hand through her hair slightly to get it out of her face. "If anyone has any questions please ask them." Jeanna said to the crowd as some news crews from a few nearby towns took interest and started to try and ask their questions.

Abraham was already at work, or well more likely just scoping out the crime scene of the murder, there was only one officer there guarding the scene. The body had already been taken over to the medical clinic, for autopsy but they still didn't clean up the area just yet he was leaning up against the statue of the town's founder. The press conference was still going on, he just needed to get a little bit closer to the scene and get a better view at it. Abraham just had a feeling that the missing girl and then the murder just a week later were connected in someway.
He walked over towards a nearby bench using his cane to walk around, and support his weight he wasn't as strong as he used to be when he was younger. His eyes scanning around the town center for his grandniece wondering where she was, the press conference to him was more of a waist of time for him. The usually did just talk about what they had found and just asked a bunch of questions that they probably didn't even know yet. "Where in the bloody hell is my damn niece." He muttered to himself as he scratched his beard.

Olivia stood more towards the back of the crowd of people and the press her eyes scanning the area as Jeanna started to answered the questions from the townspeople and the press. Her mind continued to worry about Riley they were friends since they were very little and pretty much did everything together. She didn't care much for the mayor, she knew that the man had cheated to get the office from her father. But the guy certainly didn't deserve to be murdered in front of the town hall like that, she saw the scene before they hauled the body off to the clinic which usually also acted as the town's morgue not having a true proper one.
Olivia sighed ever so slightly as she decided to head off to the café, luckily it was her actual day off today and decided to go and try and get something to eat while she was there. Olivia had pretty much spent all of her time that she could searching around the lake for anything that would lead her to Riley. She decided to go out and check the lake again later on in the day to see if she could find anything, she had used her other form to find her but the trail had since then gone pretty cold by now.
