Baseball Star Found Dead
Mariners Baseball Incorporated today revealed that former pitching superstar Mark Garibaldi had been found dead in his luxury condo earlier this week. MBI spokesman Jeremy Graham confirmed that the city coroner’s office had concluded that the 25-year-old star suffered cardiac arrest due to an undiagnosed heart defect. The baseball star’s fiancee, Veronica Vashon, was not available for comment, but spokesperson Constance Harrison expressed the fashion house’s sorrow and support for the Garibaldi family. Neither Mr. Graham nor Ms. Harrison would comment on rumors that the pitcher had died from an overdose of the street drug tempo.
Garabaldi will be honored in a private ceremony with friends and family.
Airport Rampage Kills Four
Knight Errant officials have confirmed that the magical activity at SeaTac airport earlier in the week was the work of a single perpetrator. Carl Kawashima, a magician in the employ of Fuchi Corporate Services, is currently in custody, said KE officer Daemon Carter.
Eyewitness reports claim that Kawashima ran through the International Concourse screaming incoherently at several unseen tormentors. The mage allegedly unleashed a number of deadly blasts, catching several business and vacation travelers nearby. Security services were quick to respond, but three bystanders died before Kawashima was subdued. One Knight Errant officer also died during the operation, but corporate officials have not confirmed the cause of death.
Simmonds Hailed as Hero
Microdeck junior executive, Paul Simmonds, is being hailed as a hero today after playing a key role in foiling a hostage situation. A party at the home Gino Vashon was disrupted last night by a bomb-wearing man who threatened to kill the guests in retaliation for the claimed theft of several of his clothing designs by the fashion house. Derek Penn had previously disrupted the Vashon summer fashion show and was a suspect in the assault of fashion house executive Victor Vallence earlier this year.
Simmonds is credited with leading negotiations with Penn, and distracting the would-be bomber while other, unnamed, guests managed to disable the device. Governor Kenneth Brackhaven called Simmonds a “true hero” for his actions, while also highlighting his own role in calming other guests and preventing a dangerous panic. Simmonds downplayed the claims stating that “everyone was a hero” for remaining calm and sensible through the crisis. Although the executive confirmed that several other individuals played a key role in foiling the plot, he claimed to be unaware of their identities.
