District Attorney Martinho Larsson has been missing since Monday morning, the 7th of August. If anyone has any details on the whereabouts of Mr Larsson or any known Immortals, you are encouraged to contact the police department.
District Attorney Eva Perry has been missing for about a week. If anyone has any details on the whereabouts of Ms Perry you are encouraged to contact the police department.
On Saturday The 5th of August, Asmus Zero's trial took place to answer for the charges of attempted murder in the first degree, assault with a deadly weapon, resisting arrest, and assaulting a police officer. Mr Zero was represented by Omidon Zeller and had several family members present in support.
The courtroom seemed to be a mix of tension, anger, and quiet yet friendly chatter. Several reported members of the Immortals seemed to be in the gallery along with other members of the community. Police Captain Ming Yheng was also present and seemed to be giving anyone that neared Asmus a jealous look. Perhaps this is proof of the rumored relationship between the two?
It should be noted that no jury was present during the trial which means the outcome was determined by Judge Martinho Larsson and prosecution will be determined at a later date. Captain Yheng was the first to point this out and stated " Yo Owner, I think you need to eliminate this case because in every movie there is a judge, this is not a gen..geni..ehm..genuine trial, lah" There were several shocked faces that this sort of statement came from the Captain of the police force.
As the trial began, attorney Zeller made his opening statement saying "I motion that the charges be dismissed on lack of discovery to the defense team, promoting as well, lack of evidence. It is known and documented that my client has an extensive issue with Anger and Rage management, to which he is being treated for professionally. However since there are no prior convictions on my client, as well as the basis that discovery of evidence was not shared by the ADA's office, I feel that continuation of this situation is a waste of time and tax payers money to move forward." Of course anyone would expect the defense attorney to protest the case on behalf of their client, but lack of evidence and no prior convictions definitely seems to lead one to think that maybe Mr Zero isn't the criminal everyone seems to think he is?
Of course, the police were continued to be represented in a rather embarrassing way as Captain Ming Yheng proceeded to kick against the panel behind attorney Zeller as if to get his attention. This seemed to go unnoticed by the attorney at first but others, including Mr Zero, took notice and did not give her the nicest of looks. The judged ordered her silent for a second time and she dismissed herself from the room. Later in the trial Captain Yheng returned to the courtroom unchallenged and seemed to confirm suspicions that she is involved with Asmus by yelling out "Injection!! The article in the paper is true, Yo Honor! I've read it myself!" when my previous article "In bed with the enemy" was mentioned.
It should also be noted that the sergeant mentioned in the article, Teddy 'Dora' Phokos, was not only the victim involved in this case but the officer in charge of working it. Sergeant Phoko's also arrived at the trial late and seemed to deem herself prosecutor, which went unquestioned by anyone in the court room.
Through the course of the trial, attorney Zeller and Mr Zero maintained his innocence and pointed out that the ADA had not provided required information to them. It was also mentioned that while Mr Zero has anger management issues, he does seek out professional counseling to work on the problem. In the end, he was determined guilty of attempted murder of a police officer. This verdict came swiftly and without little consideration given the conflicting stories and lack of properly filed or shared evidence. There was an outcry from the gallery and all seemed shocked at the verdict. Even Sergeant Phokos was shocked at the verdict and that should tell you something was sketchy.
Just about a month ago, the court was featured in the paper as lacking the proper staff to handle and process the growing backlog of cases. Judge Larsson stated "The Police Department put there lives on the line every day in the front line and law and order simply must be respected, therefore I am going to be making an example out of you Mr Zero." Given the goings on in court on Saturday, it is clear that no matter what verdict was right or wrong, Asmus Zero is serving a sentence just so the court can say they are handling cases. It has become ever obvious that we can only rely on a rare few of the local officers to do their job correctly, but with this seemingly predetermined verdict, it is clear we cannot rely on our sixth amendment right to fair trial.

On Tuesday, July 11th, 2017, an explosion was heard throughout Asphyxiation Point. It rattled windows, shook the ground and sent a black plume into the air that could be seen for miles. But what's more, it shook the foundation of friendship and family for a lot of Asphyxiation Point residents as several people were severely injured.
The explosion was a bomb. One that targeted the van belonging to Zero brothers Pest Control at the corner of 2nd and Beacon. Garrett and Kaiden Zero were in the vehicle at the time of the explosion. Both men are in critical condition at Asphyxiation Point Hospital. One of them still having yet to undergo surgery to repair a break in his spine that might leave him paralyzed if not successful, according to my sources in the hospital.
In addition to the two men in the vehicle, Asphyxiation Point citizen Estavan, otherwise known as Esty, and a woman he referred to as a doctor, were caught in the blast. Estavan explained that while her injuries were minimal, he sustained some deeper wounds but was already on the mend by the next day with, hopefully, no permanent damage.
What was thought to be an accident due to equipment failure or chemicals being carried on the work van just might not be the case. According to sources at the police department, this was assuredly a bomb... and one planted to specifically target these two men. When I inquired about their equipment, I was assured that there was no trace of any chemicals that might have been the cause. From what my sources say, there is evidence that clearly shows the presence of a bomb.
Police are investigating every possible lead. Despite sources stating the two men in the van are part of the Zero family,

Not for watering down the drinks or the short hemlines of the barstaff outfits, Patrons Monday at Anderson's, a local establishment that most are quite familiar with, if only by the somewhat rough reputation, were shocked when two heavily armed unidentified men stormed into the establishment and abducted a currently unidentified man from the premises.
Before they departed, they opened fire dealing property damage and injuring two other patrons. The police have yet to release a statement on this assault and kidnapping, but other sources have identified the two locals who were injured by gunfire. One Kael Firehawk, and a minor local celebrity Deirdre McMinnar, Olympic Sailor two times running for Canada, who also owns the local Computer store, Laserbytes.
Neither have sustained life threatening injuries it seems, but are reported to have been shocked and a little shaken by the incident. The Police department still has not released any information concerning who was abducted, the motives or anything regarding the incident at all.
If more information becomes available this reporter promises that you faithful readers, will be the second to know about it.

Today, Mid Town had an unpleasant surprise when they stepped out of their doors. Residents and visitors were greeted with the stench of a freak sewage leak over at The Last Chance Gas and Garage that seemed to permeate the entire area. The odorous waste material had spilled all the way across the business's parking lot and out onto the street.
Officer Phokos was observed to be on the scene. shortly after, firefighters arrived and worked to contain and dispose of the mess as quickly as possible. Bystanders looked on as the scene was contained.
We, here at Asphyxiation Point Times, certainly hope that the owners can find the source of the leak and stem the flow of sewage from happening again. Otherwise, someone will be in deep... so to speak.
Television gives us the bright and happy side of life in suburbia, something some of the citizens of Asphyxiation Point are familiar with. A world where you step outside in the morning, stretch and maybe even walk to work, not fearing anything. Not even the neighbor's dog, who you stop to pat on the head on your way by. Other parts of town, people don't have it so easy, sure. There's always danger in the rough parts. But I learned today that citizens of Asphyxiation Point have something more to fear than most cities, and it goes by the name of The Immortals.
Some people ask, are we ever truly safe with evil everywhere? Today, I can say with confidence that we are not.
As I stood outside the Asphyxiation Point Times office two people approached me, seemingly harmless and friendly. Then, with a flip of a switch, I found myself pinned to the wall by my throat as the man allowed the woman to stab me. And what's worse? They took the time to enjoy, relish and bask in their actions, even toying with my wound.
I'm sorry if this scares some of you. But when it comes down to it? You should be. Their message was hate, fear, violence and anger. They spoke of gods of evil - Hades, Nyx and Erebus. And as I was treated for my wounds and the police took my statement, I heard more than one story from others who had also been attacked by members of this "family", as they called themselves.
The people that attacked me? A man and a woman. He was handsome, but don't let that fool you. He wore all black, his hair shaved on the sides, and he was tattooed. And while that isn't necessarily a bad thing, his very essence was seething with evil. The woman? She was blonde and pretty with plenty of scars. A pain fairy is all I thought of when she was enjoying her task. And with only one eye. But I assure you, they are not alone folks. These two surely belong to a greater evil that is spreading through our city like a plague.
Their motive to attack me? They wanted me to make sure you all not only knew their "family" name but also their message.
Should you continue to step outside your homes, free of worry and full of optimism for your day? Or should you cower and fear this group? Well, I suppose you have to decide that for yourself. But rest assured, they are lurking in the shadows, and they are not afraid to strike in the daylight. From all of the accounts I've gathered, if they set their sights on you, you will not see it coming. It's not for me to tell you what to do. It's purely for me to give you their message...
Fear The Immortals.

In the early morning hours of Monday the 22nd, a gruesome discovery was made on the porch of the esteemed AP citizen Judge Charles Winterbottom. Sources say a severed head of an unidentified woman was left at the judge's home and was found by his assistant, Suki Sakamoto, who called law enforcement. It's been confirmed by a witness that one of the responding officers, Officer Kerri Oakleaf, recognized the remains but identification of the remains are still under investigation. The APPD was contacted but there has no statement made.
Details on the case are limited but what has been learned is, decomposition of the decapitated head, revealed the victim has only been deceased between 24-72 hours. Found on the head was a sharp object that had caused major damage to the tongue and throat. It appears, due to the jagged marking on the neck that the object used was something like a knife, opposed to an axe or larger object.
It's been confirmed that Judge Winterbottom had active security cameras on his porch but what was on those tapes is yet to be released.
Judge Winterbottom claims he knows of no one who would be seeking retaliation upon him, though he did admit, "...as a Judge, I am bound to have scorned somebody. It is quite possible, that somebody left it as a warning." He also confirmed he has no recognition of the victim but reconfirmed in his own words, "...I am sure that there are people who dislike me."'
The judge also released an official statement warning, "...the perpetrator will not escape justice. They will be hunted down and put in prison, where they belong, for a first degree murder, trespassing and violating private property, amongst other things." When pressed with for further information the judge gave the AP Times a stern warning, threating jail time for any who, "...infringes with an ongoing investigation." While adding, "...It is quite admirable, not to reveal your sources, without a subpoena. And I do hope that I would not have to issue such a document [unless] the need arises." Is he making a threat to our rights for a free press? Is the judge truly out for justice, or out to keep his record clean and sweep victims under the proverbial rug? One can only wonder, but the AP Times will refuse to given to threats and continue to deliver to the public any and all information concerning their safety.
More information will be given as it is revealed but for now it's reasonable to assume that there is a killer on the streets of the Asphyxiation Point. Could this be linked to the reported missing body taken from the AP Medical Center only a few weeks before? Maybe, but until the APPD decides to take reports seriously and reveal what serious threats loom over the AP community we're all at the mercy of the lawless and the violent who continue to evade the inept law enforcement.

Peace in the lower downtown area shattered with the crack of gunfire on Wednesday afternoon. The altercation occurred in the small park just East of Anderson’s and involved an individual with an apparent grudge against the Asphyxiation Point Police Department (APPD).
This reporter arrived on scene just as foot pursuit began between officers and the suspect. Any need to follow on my own part was cut off when the chase came full circle and ended with a standoff, once again in front of Anderson's. The suspect was using a response vehicle of the APPD as an apparent barricade in an attempt to avoid apprehension.
Several innocents were caught in the altercation including Xelan Morgath who despite not being APPD ended up in the line of fire, defending herself and her friends with her own weapon. Miss Morgath was arrested in the fall out of the investigation for using a weapon in self-defense, likely a precautionary action by APPD officers as they worked to clear the scene.
The suspect, whose name is being withheld by authorities, faces criminal charges. Not only did she fire a weapon at APPD but was loudly decrying the department with rhetoric reminiscent of a revolutionary call to arms. Either that or she was high on illegal substances and emulating the punk rock scene of the 1960’s.
Arresting Officer Ming Yheng, recently promoted to Captain in the APPD was forced to taze the suspect to bring her under control. Asked for comment in regard to the incident the police spokesperson would only confirm that the suspect was in custody, there were thankfully no lasting injuries, and the investigation was ongoing.
