5. Serial

"Just 20 hours after the second murder, 2 more bodies were found just blocks away from the original crime scene. The killer seems to be using the same method of killing as the first murder, leading officials to believe that Brimswood may have a spree killer on the loose. More on this story as it develops." Director clicks off the tv. The MCU conference room is silent.

"As we feared, the killer struck again. We've been able to convince the police to keep the details top secret from the media. This is definitely our guy. This killer has been extremely meticulous when it comes to details. All of the murders were committed between the hours of 1 and 6 in the morning. The bodies were all found face up in their houses near a window on the ground floor. They appeared to be killed at a different location then dragged to their homes."

"Sir," another Agent asks from the back of the room, "how do we know this case is even ours? This could just be a serial killer. From what you're telling us, this doesn't qualify as an MCU case." The director looks at her.

"There's details about this case that are MCU classified, little bits of information that were not on the police reports. Our scientists recovered mutated DNA from the victims' bodies. It appeared that before they we stabbed, they were punctured by what appears to be claws of some sort, and, after they were stabbed, some of the blood was drank by the assailant." The room goes silent.

"So, not only do we have an intelligent mutant, but a bloodthirsty one too?" Prat asks.

"Yes, and Agent Hart has been unable to track him. It appears that this mutant somehow can make his scent trail disappear. This makes it impossible to guess when and if we'll ever catch him. Between dusk and dawn, we will have agents patrolling the streets. If you see anything suspicious, you contact me and Agent Hart immediately, am I clear?" The agents agree. The director gives a few more directions before dismissing everyone.  "Hart, not you." I turn around and walk back into the room. Jones looks at me.

"Ragan, I want you to go check out the crime scenes and see if maybe our mystery mutant slipped up somehow. Report back to me what you find. Then I have another task for you." I nod and exit the room. __________________________________________________________________________________________ "Well, it was definitely the same guy." I say standing up and turning around to the police officers. I look back down at the brothers. "The Bureau is still out of leads, have you come up with any?"

"Unfortunately, no. We have people working around the clock. We're also putting out more patrol cars at night, but that's the best we can do for now." The officer replies. I nod.

"Well, contact me if you come up with anything." I say handing him my card. "Have a good rest of your day, gentlemen." __________________________________________________________________________________________ "I tried for a scent trail, but ended up a street down from Berkeley and Morgan. That place is significant, somehow. What's around there?"

Agent Nics types into her computer. "Let's see, there's a liquor shop, a pizza joint, a few office buildings, nothing that stands out too much."

"What other streets are around that intersection?" Director Jones asks. Nics begins typing again.

"The other streets closest are Birming and Lex and Concord and Kindred."

"Wait, Concord and Kindred?" I ask. The Director looks at me.

"What is it, Hart?"

"On the corner of Concord and Kindred is the building I broke into the night I was first spotted. The one where I jumped off the roof. What if this is some sort of message for me? What if he's targeting the Vanisher?" Nics and Jones look at me.

"Ragan, if that's the case, then you need to be extra careful. I'll have Smith stay with you at all times. You two need to stick together. He can stay at your apartment with you and-"

"Whoa, okay, I understand maybe having backup around, but is the living in my apartment necessary?"

"I think it might a good idea for Smith to be near you. He'll be staying with you effective immediately."  Suddenly Prat enters the room.

"Director, sir, it's the mayor." He says, turning on the tv.  The mayor is on the news, making a statement.

"Due to recent findings, I'm declaring that these killings were all connected.  Brimswood has a serial killer, and I am establishing a curfew.  For those not working, you are expected to stay inside your homes, to lock your doors, and to report all suspicious persons.  Police will be patrolling the streets and, for those working during the night hours, we advise extreme caution." 

Director Jones turns to us.  "We have a serial killer in our city, and the blood is now on our hands."
