Five Killings

Gerard A. Wallace is being chased by the authorities by five murderings which took place today. The five had torture signals and were executed in a strange manner who made many investigators remind ritual murder, a kind of murder perpetrated by secret criminal societies in the past. The Wallace family had many businesses in common with them and Gerard had became their enemy, according to familiars of the dead people.

Nevertheless, Gerard Wallace remains "untouchable" because of his past help to the city and for his many charitable deeds. He has founded many libraries, schools and universities. But, according to an investigator who we will call with the alias Winfred, Wallace cannot be shielded against the Law and must pay for the crimes commited. The Wallace family did not agree to give an interview but a speaker from them told that they had nothing to do and that they would collaborate to clear this matter in order to clean those "false accusations". Their lawyer is collecting evidence for the killings which leads to the Baker Family. The lawyer says that Norman Baker had many businesses in common with the dead people and will supply enough evidence during the next week.

For those of the readers who do not know Gerard Wallace, he is an industrialist and business man who has recently entered politics. Some say that he plans to be a major for this city, but he has denied it several times. He says he only wants to share his wealth with people and for so he has founded libraries and universities where people can learn whatever they want. It is a big network of libraries which offer many multimedia and advance technology to intelectuals and common people. He is known for being a lover of knowledge and has founded also several non government organizations to help people. On his home town, Prego, he has implanted free lunches for everyone. He is much loved there.

The pictures of the dead could not be uploaded due to the brutalness and extreme violence the reader can find on them.
