An excerpt from the Saturday edition of the Greene Herald

Kurt Douglas, local lawyer and attorney, was released today.

According to police, Mr. Douglas was suspected of killing his wife on July 30th. The murder took place while Mr. Douglas was at a local restaurant with friends and family. They were gathered to celebrate the Mrs. Douglas’s birthday.

Mrs. Douglas was found stabbed to death in her home. Police suspected a home invasion till they looked into the couple’s insurance policy. Mr. Douglas took out an exceptionally large policy a week before the murder.

They were married for 3 years.

The police cleared Mr. Douglas on any suspicion of murder. No other suspects have been taken into custody. They are also looking for any information regarding the murder. If you have any information please call the TIPS hotline.

August 8th

Dear Diary,

I woke up this morning and noticed two pages in my Diary are missing. They were torn out.

I also don’t remember anything since the night I murdered T. I woke up feeling very tired and worn out. Nothing seemed out of place or moved, it just felt lived in. Like a sense of someone else being here. After I looked around and found an old notebook full of drawings and notes.

There was also a couple of Polaroids of Julie. Looks like he already did some research this weekend. But forget him. He only wants me to get caught. I can’t trust anything he leaves me. He’s worthless.

Looks like Vanessa is away. I haven’t heard a sound from her apartment.

The hunger burns at my throat. He better not get in my way.

Next: here
