Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Sean Woll English 115, Section 05 Professor Peter Mascuch On a cold, windy day, Max was laying down with his girlfriend watching a movie. They were nice and comfortable laying there until Max heard a sound from the other side of the house. He got up and told Jane that he would go check out what had happened. When he reached the dining room at the opposite side of the house he noticed that a window was broken and saw that a tree-branch was knocked down by the wind into the window. It did not seem like a big deal to him so he cleaned up the little bit of glass then returned to Jane. Upon returning he told Jane what had happened but she didn't respond. She just sat there lying still; a little too still. He nudged her arm and her body rolled over. Jane's throat had been cut and she was dead. Max went crazy. While still in shock he ran around the house and checked each room but found no one. ...read more.

He ran outside and saw a slim black rope hanging from the roof and when he went to investigate he heard his wife scream. He rushed back to his wife and just as he came upon her dead body, throat slit straight across, he suffered the same fate. When the police arrived they checked the roof of the house since they saw the rope also. The shingles had been pulled up and a whole was cut into the roof, but the shingles were held together with black tape on the underside so as not to be noticeable, thereby creating a flap with which to sneak into a house via the attic. The other houses were then checked for this and the investigators found that all the houses had the same thing done to them. After this killing the police dubbed the serial murderer the "Roof Top Killer". Everyone was alerted to lock and nail their attics shut. The killings subsided for a while after that. ...read more.

Conclusion

It seemed as though the original killer had come out of retirement. Specialists were brought in to examine the bodies and photos of the previous victims. They determined that the victims were all killed with a long japanese sword, or katana. (It is commonly known as a ninja sword). Though the idea that a ninja was going around killing people sounded completely ridiculous, it would certainly give an explanation as to why the killer was never seen entering or exiting the home. But it would not give an explanation as to why these murders had occurred. No motive would ever be found. The "Roof Top Killer" would also never be found. Whether he was a ninja or simply a very sly man would never be discovered. Currently he is living happily with his wife, two children, and dog. He is an important part of his community. He volunteers often around his community and at his childrens' school. If he were to confess that he had killed all those people nobody would believe him. He doesn't seem capable of such horror. He is a loving husband. He is a caring father. He is anyone...and he is still out there. ...read more.
