DAYLIGHT SLAYING? CLOUDS LOOM OVER RACCOON CITY

R.P.D. announced it will set up a special joint investigation HQ for a serial murder case in which over 30 murders have already occurred.

While there is no connection between suspects, the methods in which the victims were slain are all similar.

Ordering a joint investigation into the serial murders was the rational thing to do. The scale and the detail of the investigation has not yet been made public.

The authorities have been avoiding announcing any details of the cases. They are sticking with that stance to prevent any copycat crimes from occurring.

Rumor has it that a certain member of the press has obtained some information: The suspect was temporarily insane at the time of the incident.

Authorities continued to take a "no comment" stance on the factuality of these rumors.

The case seems quite problematic.

白昼の凶暴化?ラクーンに底知れぬ暗雲

市警当局は、今月すでに30件にも達している一連の殺傷事件について、特別合同捜査本部を設置すると発表。
容疑者同士の接点が全くないにも関わらず、その犯行手口や被害者の状況が酷似しているため「合同捜査が合理的かつ妥当」としており、規模や捜査内容については未発表。

当局は関連事件についての詳細発表を依然避けているが、便乗犯や模倣犯の犯行を未然に防ぐためとの見解を崩していない。
また一部報道機関が入手したとされる「容疑者は犯行時に記憶を失っていた」という情報の真偽についても、当局はノーコメントを貫いており、捜査の難航が伺える。

Brutality in daylight? Abysmal dark clouds over Raccoon

Police authorities, with regard to the series of killings which has reached 30 this month, has announced that it has set up a joint special investigation headquarters.
In spite of an absense of a connection between suspects, the conditions of the victims and the criminals' modus operandi are very similar, and a "joint investigation is rational and reasonable". ]The scale and content of the investigation is yet to be announced.

The authorities have still avoided to announce details on related cases, and do not break it in order to prevent the perpetuation of copycat crimes.
Unconfirmed information has been obtained by a certain news organization that "the suspect was absent of sound mind at the time of the crime", though the authorities have given no comment, suggesting difficulties with the investigation.

Analysis

It details the Raccoon City Police Department's investigation of the zombie encoachment into Raccoon City, treating the murders as any other murder.

While the quote in the Japanese script is interpreted literally as mere absent-mindedness, its usage refers instead to the suspect's loss of sanity.
