    Hey. Is your character committing a crime? Did they commit a crime on Manta Carlos in the past? Or, has your character been a victim of a crime? The Manta Carlos Police Department would probably like to know about that!

    We would encourage you to post here whenever your character either commits a crime or has a crime committed against them or witnesses / hears about a crime, documenting the incident so the players on the police department have something to work with.

    Your character could still get away with it, depending on the evidence left behind and some other factors.

    Fill out this form to report a crime, removing the explanations of each field in (parenthesis)

    Code:
    [b]Type of Report:[/b] (eg. murder, attempted murder, missing person, theft, assault, public disturbance, molestation)
    [b]Person(s) Reporting:[/b] (can be a player character, NPC, or both. Can be multiple people, especially for obvious crimes in broad daylight)
    [b]Evidence Available:[/b] (Provide details shared by the person reporting, including any positive identification of suspects. Also provide kinds of evidence available at the crime scene)
    [b]Description of Event:[/b] (Now, tell us what actually happened)
    [b]Link to Thread / Chat Log:[/b] [url=URLhere]thread name here[/url] (or, if it happened in the ICC use this instead:) [spoiler=ICC Log]Paste logs here[/spoiler]
    
    You can also indicate how you would like this to play out, if you have a strong preference - eg, should the character get caught, should it be handled on or offscreen.

    Those who play MCPD officers or other people whose characters witnessed / suffered the crime can also post in the Law Enforcement Plotter to discuss what should happen. In cases where it's implausible for a criminal not to be caught or identified, the staff can require that a criminal character suffers consequences.

    Type of Report: Missing Persons
    Person(s) Reporting: The Academy
    Evidence Available: There is currently no evidence regarding the whereabouts of the missing person Kayla. The last people in contact with her was the rest of the members of her cheerleading squad, and none could be positively ID'd as suspects. However, Emily Strong has been reported for murdering another student on campus, although there is no concrete evidence to support this besides eye witness from the victim who has the ability to regenerate.
    Description of Event: Emily Strong raped, murdered and devoured a fellow member of her cheerleading squad after practice. There were no witnesses, and no evidence was left behind.

    Type of Report: Serial Murder/Theft/Assault
    Person(s) Reporting: Multiple NPCs throughout the Island
    Evidence Available: Over the past few weeks, several unnatural crimes have occurred. Ordinary citizens that have spent their lives being law abiding have snapped, attacking friends and family, committing horrendous robberies, and generally committing acts of evil. After these crimes, the arrested parties were reported to have blackened veins and erratic changes to their recorded psychological profiles. Those healed of the strange, corruptive infection, report recieving the infection from different people. All of them identify the entity as someone called "it". These infections have begun popping up with increased regularity and there are some hints that certain people may have become capable of spreading the infection themselves.
    Description of Event: Inky has begun infecting the populous of the Island.

    Type of Report: Use of Lethal Force in Self Defense & Attempted Murder
    Person(s) Reporting: 19 NPC, Affiliated with the Crime Organization "Black Fang Mafia". One missing that managed to escape.

    Evidence Available: Nineteen dead bodies dismembered and disemboweled in a variety of ways found in an alley located in "The Strip" after dusk. Evidence of firearms used before the times deaths of the few bodies that were still intact enough to offer an accurate time stamp of death. Seiken Jin Hou suffered minor bruising due to a High-Calibur 45 Pistol being used by one of the men that fired on him. Evidence of bullet impact through his clothing and body dictate he was assaulted with firearms before he killed. Eye Witness report from James Havoc also provided evidence that he performed only self-defense. Tattoo's and markings holding the Black Fang Mafia's symbol have been located on all bodies or clothing worn by the deceased.

    Description of Event: Seiken Jin Hou, Senior Student at SA was assaulted in the northwestern side of "The Strip" at roughly five pm. He retaliated with lethal force in self-defense, showing signs of lack of proper control of his powers due to psychological complications that were originally unknown to the school. He has been cleared of charges of murder, however, he is required to visit a therapy session once a week for the next six months unless officially cleared by a psychologist.

    Result: He has been cleared of charges of murder, however, he is required to visit a therapy session once a week for the next six months unless officially cleared by a psychiatrist. A note has been added to his portfolio dictating that immense lethal force and military grade weaponry would be required to deal with Seiken should anything get out of hand with him in the future.

    OOC Note: It is to be noted for any police or investigator PC that want to get involved, that any digging into this matter would result in an oddly overwhelming amount of information on the Mafia members, but an immense lack of information on Seiken. Only information that proves his innocence exists officially as if someone with alot of authority ensured it that way to make sure that even though he was innocent- no one could even try to question it or cause the young man problems. So if that annoyed any PC officers, investigators, etc or piques their curiosity and they want to question him off the clock, the option is certainly there.

    For the sake of keeping track, Angelo would have been one of the first officers on scene for Eroshay Rosales's disappearance, and will be threading the aftermath after her return.

    There were some brief concerns about conflict of interest, but inevitably they were put to the side in hopes that having Angelo would involved would make the Rosales's more likely to share information they might not have otherwise.

    Type of Report: Murder
    Person(s) Reporting: NPC named Ember
    Evidence Available: Woman returned home from work to find her sister murdered in their basement.

    For those investigating for entry points, they would find an all too easy one in the form of an open window at the rear of the house, inside there were areas of the carpet scuffed by heavy boots, but no real dirt for bootprints. The victim is lying face-down. Both arms had been removed from her body, they could be found along the staircase. The victim has a large open wound on her back and her spine appears to be missing. On her back, next to the open wound, the word "infected" has been etched into her skin, likely by a knife. A number of small bruises are located all over her body, as well as one larger bruise on her back near the spine wound. Her chest and lower neck are covered in dozens of short nails, too small to hit anything too important, but enough to cause a lot of pain. Another wound, this one deeper, could be seen at the base of the skull. Of the spikes involved 4 missed the victim's body, one is embedded in her hip, another punctured beneath her left lung, and the last one just grazing the side of her right lung.

    On observation of the traps involved, the nails have traces of blast residue on them, same as the patch of floor at the top of the stairs, indicating the use of a low-power nail bomb. A switch attached to the cieling appears built to hold and drop an object, likely the bomb.
    The trap in the door frame features two blades, one is a whole machete, the other is a thin slate of scrap metal with a sharpened edge. The mechanism seems built to swing the blades downward in a 270 degree arc.
    Both of these traps are connected to a system of tripwires at the door.
    The spike trap, Upon closer inspection, is designed in such a way as to blend in with the floor, without compromising its abilities. It has also been fitted with a three step pressure trigger system, the first starts the system up, the second trigger arms it, the third springs the trap.

    If one should check the garbage bag in the kitchen, they will find it contains a large amount of blueberry jam. A full jar of blueberry jam can be found dropped at the top of the stairs.

    Description of Event: The Trapper entered through an open window at the rear of the victims house in the dead of night. He set three traps, a blade trap and nail bomb trap at the top of the stairs leading to the basement, and a spike trap at the bottom of the same stairs. He then went into the kitchen and grabbed a jam jar that was in the open. He then emptied its contents into the garbage and placed it in full view on the counter. After it was all set the Trapper hid in a closet near the stairs.

    When the victim, a fire mage named Cindy, entered and saw the empty jar, went to the basement to retrieve a fresh jar. When she reached the bottom of the stairs she unknowingly activated the first trigger of three in the spike trap. During this time the Trapper moved to the door frame and placed the trigger system for the blade and nail traps, before retreating back to his hiding place. As Cindy came back up the stairs she triggered the second part of the spike trap, which armed the trap. When she reached the top of the stairs she triggered the first two traps. First the blades swung down, cutting off her arms. As she stumbled, the bomb dropped from the cieling and exploded, spraying her torso in nails. This caused her to fall backward down the stairs all the way to the bottom where she triggered the final phase of the spike trap and was impaled in several places on her torso.

    It was at this point The Trapper made his way down the stairs before promptly slamming his foot on the victims back. He then used his spear to stab through the back of her skull, killing her. The Trapper then took the time to carefully remove the victim's spine before exiting the scene the same way he entered.
    Link to Thread / Chat Log: The Trapper Rises (NSFW)

    I made his first murder go off very well, future murders will not be so likely but regardless I would prefer he not get caught on his first kill. (He is a Serial Killer after all)
