Didn't your mother tell you to not speak to strangers?
How about walking home in the middle of the night?

That was how victim number one was murdered. The simple act of asking for directions from a seemingly harmless man got the woman murdered in a most gruesome way. After two days, another woman was found slaughtered in the middle of a deserted parking lot. And after four days...another victim.
Day six is fast approaching, and the police have no solid leads and another dead body is expected to turn up. They're just hoping that they can find the next victim before the killer does.


Name: Cynthia Jones
Age: 25
Looks: Cynthia is slender and relatively short. She has long, curling brown hair that she prefers to keep tied back and out of her face, showing off her blue eyes. She's kind and sensitive but in no way is she weak. Cynthia sometimes holds in her feelings, since she doesn't particularly enjoy showing them to others. She dresses to fit her mood and she usually lacks a watch whenever she actually needs one.

Name: Dorian Emiliano Felice
Age: 28
Gender: Male
Appearance: Dorian has seen more in his short life than most people see in their entire lives. His body is muscular, tanned, and he has midnight black hair that he keeps shoulder length, and his facial hair is rough, but short. He dresses in suits of all black as a generality, and wears a black fedora as well. Needless to say, people have a hard time spotting him at night. Generally though, he appears to be in a good mood. The only time anyone would know any different, is if they looked deep into his eyes, and then they would see years of hardship and suffering, relaying a feeling of sorrow and regret.

Cynthia was awoken to the sound of her phone ringing. As always, when she heard it go off she figured it was going to be a possibly gruesome case. Her and Dorian, her partner for several years, were homicide detectives and they were always stuck working high profile cases.

Quickly she put on her clothes, a blue shirt and a pair of black dress pants. She dragged a brush through her wild hair and then proceeded to clip her badge onto her belt.She quickly got out of her apartment and jogged down to the lower level, pulling her phone from out of her pocket and dialing her partner's number, hoping that the station had already called him and gotten him out of bed. It was a little after four in the morning and the sun was still hiding beneath a blanket of darkness.

Dorian growled slightly as he entered the police department. Of course he hadn't been asleep when they called, he hadn't slept in days. He pulled his custom suit on and was quickly out the door. Not that it made much difference, He lived closer than she did, so he didn't have to rush, but he liked to keep moving. As he walked inside, he pulled his fedora down a little further, shielding his eyes from the light.

As he approached the rather dingy looking room that he and Cynthia called their office, he heard his cell go off. Half tempted to ignore it, he pulled it from his jacket and answered "I'm already at the office Cyn" He told her boredly "C'mon down and hurry up, and bring some caffiene, we're gonna be up for a while it seems" He told her. Dorian didn't actually know how long they were going to be up, but he preferred her when she was awake, she tended to snap on him in the early morning.

Cynthia sighed and nodded her head, "I'll do my best." she replied, hanging up her phone before she headed off towards the station. Her car was out of commission for several months and she could always use the exercise. She stopped at a small cafe on her way in and got Dorian some coffee before she continued on to the station.

She walked into the station and ran a hand through her hair before she came into their office. "Here." she set his coffee down on the top of his desk before she plopped down in her chair behind her desk. "I'm pretty sure I know what this is about, have you heard anything from the chief yet?"

"Nope, nadda" He told her, taking a sip from it and cringing. He really hated coffee, but it worked "Shouldn't be long though, everybody's all bent out of shape and high strung" He responded with a sigh. Things had been tense for the last week, waiting for the next body to show up. Nobody knew who was doing the killings, or why. The killer didn't even leave any sort of noticeable calling card of any sort, it was highly frustrating. "I'm telling you, it's some cult following or something" He told her. It was his own personal oppinion on the reason for the killings. It wasn't much, but it was his personal gut feeling.

"It looks that way." Cynthia noted, spinning around once in her chair before she leaned back and put her feet up on her desk, flipping open a blue folder and looking at the contents inside of it. "Especially since whoever it is also decided to take half of the internal organs of the victim with them." Cynthia wrinkled her nose slightly, she had never possessed a strong stomach and she appeared to be pretty high strung to a majority of the others that worked at the station.

Dorian sighed and shrugged "Yum yum" He said in a half hearted attempt at a joke. "Seriously though, what could be the purpose of that?" He asked her, or rather asked to nobody, but as she was in the room with him, she'd likely answer it. Deciding not to even give her a chance to answer "Hey Cyn, all goes well, let's go out to dinner sometime, hm?" He asked. "It's been a while since we've just hung out"

Cynthina smiled just a bit and nodded, "That would be nice." she said, "I suppose you want to see my apartment too, don't you?" she teased. She hadn't had him over since she had moved for the third time that year.

Dorian stuck his tongue out playfully "Alright, sounds good" He responded. Then, as they were chatting, the door to their office opened up and the Captain came in "Hey you two, the victim's body has been found, let's go"

Cynthia got up and nodded, "Alright." she smiled at Dorian before she followed the captain out. She wasn't looking forward to seeing what had been done to the body, but she was almost positive that the coroner would be more than happy to explain every disgusting detail to them.

As the group went down to the Coroner's office, Dorian crinkled his nose. He hated the scent of the place. It was like walking in a hospital. The only major difference for him was that it was quiet and rather empty. Finally, they approached the door that Cynthia and he had gone through so many times since they started talking, and stepped inside.

The room before them was spotlessly clean, although dimly lit. There wasn't much to the room, an autopsy table of stainless steel, the rack that held all the tools, and a wall of storage cabinets for storing the bodies of the recently deceased.

And there, standing at the far end of the room stood a rather small man who looked half crazed while holding a scalpel. 5'4", and weighing maybe 145 lbs, the good docter wasn't someone people would expect to work as a coroner. Perhaps a librarian, or a store clerk, but his friendly demeanor denied his natural aptitude for cutting up the dead and discovering whatever it was had done the deed leading in death.

Oscar Smiles nodded at both Cynthia and Dorian and motioned for them to step over to the table in front of him. "Well, I suppose you two will want to take a look at the crime scene as well, but I had the opportunity to get the body back here for you two to see."

Cynthia rolled her eyes slightly, "Thanks Oscar." she said, although her discomfort was apparent on her face. She didn't mind the scent of the morgue, but she the idea of standing there while Oscar joked around. "Let's get this over with." She pulled the sheet back from the body on the table and she instantly wished that she hadn't.

The woman was young, in her mid twenties from the looks of it. Her eyes were empty black holes and it was easy to tell that her eyes had been carved out from their sockets. Around her neck were dark bruises that made it seem like she had been strangled. The woman's name was carved into the skin of her stomach. "Her name was probably Melissa...people use Missy as a nickname for that particular name."

"Alright, I'll have the name referenced out, see if we come up with any matches." He turned to Oscar "Hey Doc, any idea what the used on the eyes?" He asked. The edges were smooth, so it was something sharp, and it was clean, almost surgically so.

Oscar shook his head, turning back to his desk "No, not yet. It doesn't look like they actually cut the eyes out at all. The marks are almost suction like. Here, let me show you" He said, turning around with a magnifying lens, bringing it in to the edge of the eyes. There were clear marks around the girls eyes. "Almost like goggles. That's what I thought the markings were from originally, but they're too wide for that. I can't figure it out."

"I see... Well, thanks Doc, let us know if you find anything else out."

Cynthia was oddly quiet, for once. She didn't have anything to say at all, she just grimaced. Her least favorite part of a case was visiting the morgue. Write her up a report, and she could read it, show her the body, and it never settled with her. "Thank you, Oscar," she said, nodding her head, before she stepped out.

"We should probably read up on the files, I'm sure one of the secretaries has it already on our desk," Cynthia inquired.

"Later Doc" Dorian said, waving over his shoulder. "Alright Cyn, lets get you out of here" He remarked, giving her a friendly nudge.

Cynthia glanced up at him, and shook her head. "I'm fine," she brushed it off. "Did you still want to go out tonight? If we have the night off, that is," she commented.

Dorian nodded slightly after a moments thought. "Yeah, a night out would do us both a world of good, especially with this case as it is." He told her, leading the two of them up the staircase out of the morgue and into the main section of the building, towards the homicide office. When they arrived, he sat down at his desk and began sorting through the papers and files he had scattered about his desk.
