G. MERCER DEAD BY SOLANDIAN HAND, SUSPECT ON THE RUN
A great tragedy has befallen the world of science. Last night, the Father of the Pentium Revolution was found dead in his workshop, murdered in cold blood by one of his students. The cause of death is currently unknown. His murderer has fled the scene and is still on the run, sources say.
Mercer’s wife reportedly waited for her husband to come to bed, but didn’t think much of it when he didn’t. “Sometimes he would just stay up overnight, so I wasn’t worried,” she told officers in an interview this morning. “But when I checked in on him in the morning…”
Officers at the scene suspected one of the Solandian students studying at Gladwood Labs to be the culprit. This suspicion was confirmed when the suspect fled the research complex, injuring two officers along the way. The entire Solandian study group has been arrested as accomplices.
The murderer has been identified as Altea Kaine, a young woman of short stature, long dark hair, and blue eyes. She is extremely dangerous and not to be confronted directly. During her escape, the murderer made off with a prototype casting glove, which she used to fight law enforcement at the scene. Another student, yet unidentified, has also escaped from the police. The two appear to be working together.
If any of our readers have any information on Ms. Kaine or her accomplice’s whereabouts, please contact your local police station immediately. Asonor Tal will set this great injustice right.
