Base: Bluffton, South Carolina
Date/Time: October 30, 2006
Incident: Just in time for Halloween, a zombie is reported loose in lower South Carolina.
On October 30, 2006, the Bluffton High School held a student film festival with a Halloween theme. Three of the keepers of the "Zombie zoo," one of them a high school student, took along one of their captive zombies as an accessory to their early group Halloween costume; a team of "zombie hunters" who had nabbed a mobile dead.
I was not at the school at the time of the incident, so the details are from several witnesses and may be skewed. Apparently when the group arrived at the school, the undead man lunged from his keepers' grip at a crowd of bystanders. One of the handlers was bitten on the arm and chest trying to subdue it, and another of the men disappeared after the fray. It is unknown if he too carries a bite. The man with the bite was treated and is recovering; the third man is under questioning.
The most disturbing part of this incident is that the zombie was unable to be located shortly after the uproar had died down. There is a large forested area surrounding the western side of the school where two of my companions are searching. Most of our watchmen are combing the streets of the housing development across the street from the school.
I am considering this an important event, because there is a renegade zombie that can easily wander into a suburb, and a possibly bitten man is MIA, and this incident also means three less people securing the confirmed zoo. And with Halloween night being tomorrow many people, mostly children, will be roaming the streets late into the night alone, surrounded by look-alikes. This is the worst time for this to happen.
I am going to see to the investigation of the zoo personally, while my companions attempt to locate our missing zombie and friend. All agents in the southern South Carolina/ northern Georgia area are urged to keep a close lookout.
Updates soon to come.
Comments from Dr. Pecos: I find it hard to believe that anyone would be stupid enough to take a captive zombie to a student event at a high school. But OK, I'll indulge you. What happened next?
