Glimpse into the Last Ride – Intro Clipping

Seattle Post
April 28, 1975
The remains of Laura Kramer were discovered by a small group of hikers Sunday morning 30 miles east of Seattle, just off Interstate 90. In a horrifying tale of events the body had been severely mutilated and buried in a shallow grave only a mere 10 feet from the roadside. Local officials had no comment on the details of the murder. However, this reporter has learned from several eye witnesses that the heart appeared to have been ripped from the young woman’s chest, the head removed and the body burned beyond recognition. There appeared to be no sign of struggle and Miss Kramers personal belongings had been buried with her body.

This is the fifth woman to be found along I-90 in the last 10 months. All of the unfortunate women’s bodies have been severely burned with both the heart and head removed before being buried in shallow graves. According to police records, three of the women had been seen hitchhiking prior to the incidents. While authorities have not officially commented to the possibility, some are suggesting this to be the work of, what the FBI is now calling, a serial killer.

A Glimpse into BlackWater – Bryan

I had slowed down to a brisk walk but I finally stumbled onto the bridge which had to be at least a mile from the road. It was barely twenty degrees outside but I could feel my shirt clinging to my body from the sweat. Damn I was out of shape and I knew I had to stop to rest. I sat there in the middle of the bridge looking back down the trail. Was I alone? It was dark but my eyes had began to adjust to the night. Ok, no movement. No shadows stumbling down the path. I was safe for the moment. I felt like somebody had kicked the shit out of me but I was alive. I made a feeble attempt to slow down my breathing and for a brief moment I actually forgot about what I had just seen back there. I laid back on the icy cold bridge and my eyes became tangled up in the milky night. It was so clear on the outskirts of town without the lights to kill the sky. I can’t remember the last time I saw the night so full of life. A billion stars a million miles away. Distant worlds where none of this mattered, places that I would never see. My breathing slowed to a relaxing pace as I closed my eyes.

That’s when I heard it.

A Glimpse into BlackWater – Leslie

Her face hit the tiles with a deafening crack. In an instant, everything went out of focus. Leslie could almost feel the icy pavement beneath her. She was in the 5th grade when she broke her nose in the driveway. She remembered the fear of dying as she ran to the front door. The blood tracing her tiny footprints all the way to the house. She could hear Miss Janet, her bus driver, screaming something behind her but that was all in another place, long ago. She was back on the hospital floor now and she could feel ….

A Glimpse into BlackWater – Steven

The screams of the bodies spilling out of the elevator stopped him dead in his tracks. “Quick, Over here!” Steven grabbed Beth by the hand and busted through the door to the stairwell. They only made it halfway down a flight of stairs before hearing the screams echoing up to them from the level below. “It’s no good! We have to get to the roof!” They raced up the stairwell as fast as they could. Beth’s chest was starting to ache. She could feel the tension rising in her legs. Steven was in no better shape. The muscles in his calves had started burning long before they even reach the third floor. Luckily, they were almost there. Steven threw open the door and they burst onto the rooftop.

A Glimpse into BlackWater – Beth

Beth was out the door the moment the wheels came screeching to a halt. Deputy Howards cruiser was parked up on the curb, engine still running, door wide open. It looked like the dumb shit had taken out 3 mailboxes before coming to a stop. She made her way through the snow. This was the worst winter in over a decade. 20 inches of white powder had covered the small town of BlackWater in a blinding white blanket over the course of one week. The steps leading up to the porch were covered in a slick sheet of ice. Beth grabbed the railing with one hand, her medic bag in the other, and launched herself up the steps. One foot made it over the welcome mat before she felt it. 250 pounds of brute force head on, bashing her to the ground. The back of her head bounced off the frozen porch with a mind numbing crack. In an instant her entire world went black.
