Base: Newport News, Virginia
Date/Time: 29 April, 2003/1400 hours
Incident: At 1400, while following up on previous investigation, I was contacted by informant's mother. She stated, very emotionally, that the local authorities had informed her that her son's remains had been located. The cause of death was suicide by gunshot to the head. The police inquired about her son's "friends," who turned out to be the aforementioned group of caretakers. The official police report states that the group of vampire/satanic/gothic enthusiasts had followed through with a suicide pact in order to "rise from the dead." A total of fives bodies were recovered, all matching the description of the core group of caretakers. I was able to use my close personal ties to a local law enforcement official to learn that the weapon used was a 9mm handgun that the group apparently passed around and shot themselves after drinking each other's blood, as some had what appeared to be human bite marks on and about their bodies. I was permitted to see the crime scene photos on the digital camera LCD; these were NOT the actual hard copies, so details were grainy at best. It will be several months before photos are made a part of public record.
Summary: If the subject "pet" was indeed a zombie it is doubtful that it would have the mental capacity to construct such an elaborate death. Other than superficial bite marks, there were no visible signs that any obvious portion of the victims had been "chewed-on." If, however, the subject was a lone vampire, the possibility exists that it could have constructed this ruse; however, it does not explain the complicating factor of the individuals with New Mexico identification. No autopsies are planned and local authorities are branding this incident "cut-and-dry."
Recommendation: All current contacts and leads exhausted. Recommend New Mexico based FVZA follow up on possible operatives of other organizations working this case. Adjust threat level to "Low" and file.
