Missing Mile's Independent Voice

[UPDATED] Cell-13 DVD threatens Mayor’s life

In Crime, Local News, Politics, Terrorism on September 21, 2009 at 12:11 am
A DVD was sent to the Missing Mile Times editor, along with key representatives of the MMPD, depicting members and affiliates of Cell-13 holding the Honorable Mayor Amanda West hostage.
This, just shortly after Missing Mile Times received a Letter to the Editor, written in Arabic and translated as such:
“Down with the media and the infidel. All of you have to pay to take a picture of us without allowing us to come together to form. Give us some damned credit.”
The Missing Mile Times office was being outfitted with a security detail, courtesy of MMPD Detective Roxanna Vestieri, when the unexpected DVD arrived.  After the first few seconds of footage, it became very clear that this was no Netflix.
The video quality was amateur; however, the presented hostage situation was anything but.
A man was shown wearing full tactical armour, black and grey camoflauge attire, and holding an RPK machine gun. This was a match for Chief Inspector Tyiler Scarbidge’s previous description of Cell-13 terrorists.
Even more disturbing was the footage of Missing Mile’s Mayor West taped to a chair with the same duct tape that muffled her screams.
“It seems to me Inspector and all citizens of Missing Mile we have something important to you,” taunted the aforementioned man before laughing sadistically.  He could also be heard screaming in Arabic, often as a precursor to the repeated brutal beatings of Mayor West.
American accents were also noted, both male and female, lending proof to the suspicion of local recruitment.
Upping the ante, a segment of black PVC pipe was wrapped around Mayor West’s neck with this accompanying threat; “I suggest if the lovely town of Missing Mile would like to see the Mayor with her head and her body not in a puddle of liquified flesh, you comply with my orders that this city is now under the control of Cell-13.” He waved what appeared to be a remote detonator before his chilling laughter echoed once more.
Near the end of the haunting footage, the voice of an American male made their rules and conditions more clear.  “You have six hours to have the local police department lower their weapons to the ground. We will have people watching. All those who fail to comply will be shot, and any attempt to attack will result in the death of the Mayor.” After which, the armed Arab leveled his RPK at the camera and with a flash of light and a loud bang, the screen faded to black.
MMPD Forensics have been analyzing the footage in an attempt to find clues as to the Mayor’s location.  Based on both visual and audible observations, MMPD suspect that she is underground and within county limits.
“I know that these are difficult times, but the MMPD has the people’s best interest at heart and mind and we are doing absolutely everything in our power to get the Mayor back safely. We can guarantee that the events today will not go unpunished,” promised Captain Lennon Daines. “Moving forward, all that we ask of you is to remain vigilant in reporting any suspicious activity and try to go about your lives as normal.  Fear is their biggest advantage. Let’s not give it to them.”
MMPD stressed that it’s absolutely imperative the search for Mayor West remain restricted to Police Officials.

[UPDATE]: The following letter was delivered to the Missing Mile Times office, in addition to the MMPD 1st Precinct, on the evening of September 21, 2009:

“You are so unwise not to follow our instructions as you will see on bottom of this letter there is blood of your mayor. You have 4 hours to lay down the arms. Increasing your men’s weapons and protection is of no use.  We do not have to abide by the rules of war that you have to…”

The bottom of the letter was smeared with blood as stated above.  It has been tested and verified as that of Mayor Amanda West.

  1. I can not stress enough how important it is that our fair city’s citizens remain calm. We have many promising leads we are following up on, and assure you all that the situation is under control.

    – Capt. Lennon Daines
    MMPD, Head of Investigations

    • Calm and terror rarely go hand in hand, but hopefully calm will prevail and be restored to our city once more. Thank you and your team for their tireless work on this matter. Godspeed.

  2. *A clean note sent in on casual copy paper that you can get from any store and printed using a generic laser printer making match difficult is sent to the MMPD as well as the Editor*

    I see that the police have increased the level of equipment, vests, assault rifles, that was not part of the demands I stated do not taunt me because the mayor will suffer for it, there is 3 hours remaining before the deadline, how ironic…

  3. ((….america fuck yeah?))

  4. We will find the culprits responsibe for this. They will be brought to the bar of Justice.

  5. Thank you for taking the time to comment, Chief Strazytski.

    I have faith in your words and in the MMPD that these terrorists will be brought to justice and subjected to the full extent of the law. Hopefully the citizens of Missing Mile still share in our optimism.
