Twelve Dead in Lone Star Raid
Representatives from Lone Star Security Services have refused to comment on the deaths of twelve Maritech Enterprises employees during a police raid on an Auburn-area facility. Official sources report that the operation was part of an ongoing investigation into rising problems with the street drug, tempo. Lone Star has not released information to support a connection between the Aztechnology subsidiary and the drug trade, but claims that the raid was based on “reliable information” from their ongoing investigation.
All twelve of the dead are employees of the facility, including four security guards and six workers. Police have a single survivor of the raid in custody. None of the officers involved in the raid were hurt, and unofficial sources indicate that all were former Metroplex Guard officers involved in Lone Star’s retraining program.
Officials from Maritech Enterprises and Aztechnology have expressed outrage at the raid and the implication that their organizations are involved with the tempo trade. Both corporations have vowed to initiate an independent investigation into the incidents, and have not ruled out legal action against Lone Star and the city of Seattle.
Trideo Star Narrowly Escapes Death
UK trid star, Simon Headley, narrowly escaped death Sunday night when he was attacked by two men in his hotel room in Seattle. The elven star was in the Emerald City for a charity event and promotional tour for his new film, Naughty But Niece. Headley’s bodyguards hustled the star out of the room and killed one of the attackers before the second gunman surrendered to hotel security. The man was in Lone Star custody until Monday morning, when he was found dead in his cell, the victim of apparent suicide. Police officials have not released a comment on how the man was able to obtain the belt used to kill himself.
Headley was not available for comment, although TFI officials have assured fans that the star is in good health and suffered no ill effects from his brush with death.
Bomb Threat a Dud
Operations were suspended at SeaTac International Airport yesterday, after Knight Errant Security received an anonymous tip about a bomb. A massive search of the facility found no evidence of an explosive device, and normal operations resumed within 30 minutes. The delay caused the disruption of flight service and resulted in chaos across the North American transport network, delaying thousands of travelers and rerouting dozens of flights. Knight Errant officials are investigating the source of the bomb hoax.
Rape Suspect in Custody
Lone Star Security spokesperson, Martin James, today announced a breakthrough in the Bonilla rape case. Officers arrested media agent, Joshua Rochu, late Sunday night after receiving a tip from Aztlan and Aztechnology representatives. Rochu was taken into custody at his Seattle hotel without incident, and is being held without bail. Inside sources indicate that Eréndira Bonilla has positively identified Rochu as her attacker.
Aztlan ambassador, Arlan Bonilla, publicly thanked the Seattle police force for their ongoing investigation, stating that he and his daughter were relieved that the ordeal was coming to an end. Bonilla refused to comment further on rumors that the deaths of over a dozen elves in the city were linked to his country and its parent corporation.
Bodyguards in Need of Better Protection
Three employees of Securitas Services, a local personal security firm, were found last night in an abandoned warehouse in the Tacoma region. Lone Star Security Services received an anonymous tip that the three bodyguards were imprisoned in the building, and the police freed them without incident. Securitas has declined official comment on the incident, but unofficial sources suggest that the men had been held in the facility since Saturday evening. The three may have been slated to escort an unnamed minor celebrity during a promotional tour, but Securitas has been unwilling to deny or confirm these rumors, citing client confidentiality.
