MURDER IN THE PARK

On the 8th of October, a murder was committed in a park on the outskirts of Tulsa. The victim was a 17-year-old boy named Bob Sheldon, who was found lying in a pool of blood at 5pm. A woman was taking a walk through the park when she discovered the bloody corpse. She contacted the police immediately.

A witness known to be a friend of Bob Sheldon said that his friend had been brutally murdered by a knife-wielding maniac. This may be biased information due to a variety of witness stories.

Residents who live near the park are not at all surprised that such a horrible sin has taken place. They say that there has been a culture of street gangs in the area for years and that it is usually not at all safe to be out late at night because of these gang problems.

Two boys named Johnny Cade and Ponyboy Curtis have been said to be missing since the murder has taken place, and are suspected to be involved. The police showed up at 5:13 am and investigated the scene. Cade and Curtis were of course nowhere to be found, and Curtis’s older brother also called police and reported him missing. Detectives and search parties searched the whole town, but the boys were still nowhere to be found.

Police inform us that they have the situation under control and are currently searching for Cade and Curtis, who are known to have an involvement in this crime.

Where did Curtis and Cade go? Are they hiding from the authorities? We do not know yet, but we will surely find out.
