Detective Collins is a good cop and I told her that if she spotted anything that looked like the old Gemini killings, to let me know. So she blows into town ready to take my damn head off, with this in hand. It's from the Psion City paper, day after the Saints and Sinner's Ball.
Gemini Killer Makes Garden Debut - Republic official slain in targeted hit
Psion City - The New Year was rung in last night with a three-corpse killing spree. The first body was discovered late last night in an alley just off of Carapace Boulevard. So far two local witnesses reported hearing gunshots, but no one saw the perpetrator.
The Daily Tribune has been asked not to report specific details of the murders at this time, but former Citizens have confirmed that the modus operandi of this kind of hit has strong parallels to a known hit-man and serial killer from the City Versus Itself known as the Gemini Killer.
"I'd never thought we were going to see the Gemini's wet work here in Psion," said Garden Precinct Police Chief Furman. Witnesses with any information regarding the killing are encouraged to contact the Garden Precinct Police Department. Who knows when the Gemini will strike again?
According to Collins, the death count was at 10 murders when she left Psion City a month ago and legged it down here after us for more answers. I told her what I could and kept my distance as Jimmy told her some more personal things.
I was studying the pattern of Ochiti's and my visions of being black-bagged and all signs point to Jimmy's old partner, Jane. I heard tell there was a divination run about her - who ended up doing it and what came out of that?
Before anyone says, "She died", a lot of folks seem to get here from dying, so she could have been here for a long time (or not much time at all; that's metaphysics for you).
Duo and I took a look at some things, and I'll lay them out here, but I'm still on her trail.
- We can't verify if she has a new partner without checking the forensics.
- She's back to contract killing, so she likely has the pinions for anything that strikes her fancy.
- She's very off script, so behavior predictions and profiles are going to be off base. Plus, on my last read of the Gemini data, she was the unstable half of the pair, behavior-wise. So drastic changes wouldn't be out of character.
- The most likely set of victims is Ochiti, Cassie, Aubergine and myself and a Soldier of Fortune is helpful on those four until we get her off of the board. So far, I think all four of us are covered until this next gather.
- The connector is Jimmy - her coming this way and paying attention to these victims has to do with him. Theory: The possibility of his having a connection to a woman may register as her being replaced.
Despite the weirdness of this pre-crime stuff, I think that I'm close to finding her. If I end up with two holes in me, good guess is that I found her (but I think Trecut has that handled for a bit).
