Case One: The Pleasant Murders

A month has past since the Point Pleasant Murder Spree resulted in the arrest of Rachele Parr, and the arresting Officer, Leo Ryans, took off for Quantico with Agent Massey to look into a better job. Alexander, having recovered from his injuries and accepted a job as a Field Researcher for Memento Mori’s parent company, which by pure coincidence has made him increasingly paranoid. Cameron deTrevallion has also returned to Point Pleasant, having been excised of his personal demon and given an offer he couldn’t refuse, now acts on his family’s behalf. And Andrew is there, waiting for them, having joined the Reverend Mother as a devotee of the Church of Silent Sorrow. Not wanting to stay at his old home just yet, Cameron invites Alex & Andrew to join him in establishing a safehouse in the basement of the Point Pleasant theater-house, where they go over the events of last month, what they have (or may have) been up to since then, and what to do about the future. Given the active concern over Rachele Parr demonstrated by each of their new-found patrons, they may have some mutual goals to pursue if the court case against her falls through.

The news on that front is not good. She has some high caliber representation who’s making mincemeat out of the ramshackle evidence against her. Andrew’s contacts haven’t been able to find out just who’s fronting the money, but the gang’s guess is her former employers, the Memento Mori Society. Other troubling news is an increase in Mothman sightings, UFOs, MiBs, and worst of all, another occult-slaying using the same motif as that of the prior three from last month.

Could it be that, what ever else she may have said or done, Rachele may be innocent of the Point Pleasant Murders?

Case One: The Pleasant Murders

Sunday, October 17th

Officer Leo enjoys finally having a day off and spends the morning at one of the more traditional churches, while Alexander & Andrew attend (hoping perhaps get the inside scoop on) the Church of Silent Sorrow. While there Andrew’s keen eye notes a number of men in suits that seem out of place, and a tad menacing. After the service he and Alex hang back in the receiving line, noting the goons and their protectiveness of an older gentleman as he takes his turn speaking at length and quite happily with Rev. Staples.

Case One: The Pleasant Murders

Thursday, October 14th, 2010

After holding them for the maximum amount of time allowable for questioning them and not charging them, the Police let Alexander and Andrew go. Andrew, thinking things through with his almost photographic-like memory, has come to the conclusion that at least some of the symbols on her body were Enochian (the cypher-language Dr. John Dee, Queen Elizabeth the I’s Doctor & Astrologist, had claimed was a magical language given down by the Angels). Cameron (who wasn’t held for any reason other than he really rubs Officer Ryans the wrong way) offers to put up his prison-mates at his place, so they agree to meet up there after they’ve fetched their affects and payed their bill at the local motel. Deputy Ryan is informed by the Sheriff that this whole case is out of their league, so the FBI has agreed to send some specialists to look into the affair. Once they arrive, he gets to babysit them and keep them out of everyone’s hair.

At their hotel Alex & Andrew find a bewildering number of cards & messages left for them. The reporter for the Gallipolis Daily Tribune wanting to interview them is not so surprising, but messages from the Church of Silent Sorrow and the Memento Mori Society leave them perplexed and curious. Calling the Church, they reach Derril Perkins, who happily tells them the Reverend Mara Staples would very much like to speak with them. The secretary for the Memento Mori Society, Rachelle Parr, also invites them to come out to Mortuary Hill to speak with them and share their experiences. Though both groups offer comfort, they seem to create more questions than answers.

Cameron arrives home to find his Cousin Jenna Seward in residence. He does his best to avoid her, but that only means she’s a bit drunk once she catches up with him. They chat a bit about the Family abroad, and their concerns for his future, much of which he tunes out. Her leading questions, asking him if he still hears “voices” like he used to, like when he was a child, before his trip to Vienna to see the Family “doctors,” leaves him shaken – especially as he has no recollection of such events. His attempts to get rid of her falling flat, she’s still around for dinner when Alexander and Andrew arrive.

Ch. 1: Welcome to Point Pleasant
Case One: The Pleasant Murders

Tuesday, October 12th, 2010

We meet our heroes to be at a greasy spoon locals call “Mable’s,” legendary hereabouts for it’s award winning apple pie. Etta Marshal (daughter of Mayor Fred Marshal) happily collects the orders of regulars and strangers alike. She takes note of two such newcomers in town – it’s the off season, so she has to wonder, why are they here now?

Sitting in the corner stall, waiting for some of that world-class pie, also curious, is Deputy Leo Ryans, and when Etta makes her way back to give him that pie and a refill for his coffee, she gossips away. Turns out one of the fellows are Alexander Smith, a Grad Student from Ohio state, out here doing research for a paper regarding stories locals might recall from the disaster 50 years ago at Silver Bridge, and the stories of the Mothman that cropped up around that time. The other is a reporter from some west-coast internet paper, one Andrew Lockhart, here to do a puff-piece on the Mothman for Halloween. Being the two only out-of-towners (they can tell by being the only two in the diner working on laptops) the two are becoming fast friends, and even are considering working together in researching the town.

As the evening wears on, two others filter in, both local, both making Deputy Ryans roll his eyes and hope no trouble comes of it. Cameron deTrevallion, last and latest member of one of the Founding Families that came with the French who originally settled here (and across the river in Gallipolis), and possibly one of Point Pleasant’s more notorious eccentrics. The other being the ever nocturnal Andrea Carlson, a veteran from the Afghanistan conflict who apparently made herself a bundle and chose to spend it by settling down in Point Pleasant to run a gun shop. After Alex tries (and fails) to make introductions to the arrogant and self-absorbed Cameron, Andrea approaches the two newcomers and invites them out for drinks at a nearby bar. Neither the sort to pass up an invitation by a lady (even a slightly intimidating lady wearing sunglasses and a trench coat on a warm October night).

While passing a nearby alley the sound of a crash near a dumpster attracts their attention. Andrew charges in, and spots two large red spots, like eyes, skittering up along the wall, before they disappear and he hears a strange buzzing, flapping sound. The object to which the strange illumination is attached he never quite sees clearly. Then Andrea and Alexander have caught up with him. They tentatively open the dumpster, to find the body of a teenage girl. Barely 14, her naked body has been cut up, strange occult symbols carved into her skin. Deputy Leo, heading out to his car, notices the commotion about this time, and starts to head over. Andrew manages to snap off a few pics with his phone-camera before he arrives and nearly looses his lunch. As a small crowd gathers at the edge of the ally, Cameron decides to “help” with crowd control, and ends up being hit with a charge of obstruction of justice. He, along with Andrew and Alexander, end up getting taken down to the station for questioning. Andrea sidesteps the confusion and disappears before she too can get taken along for the ride.
