The East River Police and the Sheriff’s Department are looking into a video found on a mangled body in the woods only a few miles from the Feral Marine compound. On the body a video camera with a damaged cartridge was found.
“The body was found gnawed and mangled,” said a Sheriff’s Deputy, “and it really looks like something the beast would do. We’re advising residents to stay close to home and avoid the hiking trails for the moment.”
The video (link), purchased by Waterbank News, shows a new boat from Feral Marine, and appears to have been cut to promote the new luxury liner. Conspiracy theorists in East River have already suggested that the death was in fact a homicide made to look like the beast had done it.
“Feral’s very secretive,” said a Feral Marine worker off record. “This wouldn’t be the first person something strange happened to.”
East River Police say that they are looking into all possible leads.
Waterbank University biologists are rushing to Antiquity to see the boars in a previous time.
“They’re the size of rhinos,” one exclaimed. “Even the Archerfield Asper Ass (actually a boar) isn’t as big!”
Biologists believe that the boars are the predecessors of today’s boars, and merit further study.
Recent reports of a “beast-like creature” in the mountainous area behind East River’s major airport, ERIA has sent the Sheriff’s Department into the hills.
“There are plenty of trails and open land there,” said a spokeswoman for the Department. “Our drones get shot down by the residents, so we’ve taken to mounted patrols. As yet there haven’t been any reason to believe the beast is back.”
“Don’t believe a word they say,” said a mountain man on Mt. Montezuma, “they ain’t seen the crazy beast like I have.”
In a ceremony so exclusive that the guest of honor and all of the Waterbank News staff wasn’t invited, Waterbank News named Rez Gray as Waterbank News’ Person of the Year, an award that is all the more impressive since the year isn’t over.
“He’s a titan of industry, a major economic force, and a creator without equal,” gushed the Editor in Chief of the Waterbank News. “He has created entire communication networks and his work on GTFO is bringing the world together.”
“Waterbank News’ Person of the Year Award is a big deal,” said President of the Waterbank Business Agency, Sketch Sun. “Only major contributors to society are named.”
“He would say that,” mumbled the intern at the WBA about Sun. “He was Person of the Year 2014.”
Waterbank News’ Person of the Year wasn’t available for comment, though people who know Rez say that he would be mildly amused. “He’s a humble guy with one foot in the clouds and the other on Mainland sand,” said Smuggler X, who says he first met Rez at a Dutch Harbor party. “A great guy.”
Insiders in Prototype have said that Astaro is renewing interest in an Astaro train that will allow a new age of freight for the world.
“This could be a real game changer,” said Sketch Sun of the WBA, “it may be that we could see whole new markets open and new GTFO freight protocols. It’s worth keeping an eye on.”
Locals of Dutch Harbor and commuting workers are hailing the newest development on the island sales center, saying it’s about time.
“You don’t know how long we’ve been here without a single restaurant,” said one local. “Dutch once started a recycling drive and he’s never had to by metal again for his projects. We’ve been living on canned food for years!”
Visitors and locals can now buy food at the Dutch Harbor Terminal building and a local snack stand, all alongside a new deepwater dock and a ferris wheel.
“We’re sorry to see some of our favorite customers go,” said a spokesperson for Waterbank Fish Company, “but we are sure that they will return to our fine seafood products very soon.”
The WBA has pledged that they will match Lindens for kilometers travelled by their staff to a worthy charity. The charitable matching will commence after the release of the new ZSK jet, a highly anticipated luxury craft that is likely to be released soon.
“We believe strongly in giving back,” said WBA President Sketch Sun.
“That’s the big difference,” explained the Editor in Chief of the Waterbank News. “We never give anything back.”
