Transcript

AN EERIE VOICE FROM THE UNDERGROUND
Recently there is spooky talk around South Campbell street. It is said that groans can be heard from the drainage system at night.

It is easy to dismiss it as a ghost story that middle school students love to talk about on camping nights. But the amount of missing people has increased rapidly at this locale for the past month.

8 people have gone missing. Strangely, the missing people have a lot in common: They are all single white females aged 18 to 23 with beautiful blonde hair.

The street was wrapped in a dense fog the day after they went missing. From the sewer drain, which runs north-south along the street, a woman's constrained voice could be heard for several hours.

Of course, the drainage sewers have been thoroughly investigated. But neither the missing person nor any traces have been found.

The Police Department has so far denied the relationship with the bizarre incidents that have rapidly increased after the mansion incident. However, the events must be related.

地下から不気味な声

サウスキャンベル通りに、最近奇怪なうわさが広まっている。
下水管から、人のうめき声が夜な夜な聞こえてくるというのだ。
これを、ミドルスクールの生徒がキャンプの夜に話すような怪談話と片付けるのはたやすい。
しかし、通りではここ1ヶ月で行方不明者の数が急増。すでに8人が姿を消している。
しかも、行方不明者どうしには奇妙な共通点もある。

まず全員が18から23歳の若い白人女性であること、未婚者であること、ブロンドの美人であること、などだ。
そして、彼女らが姿を消した翌日には、決まって深い霧が立ち込める。

通りに伴走するかたちで南北に伸びる下水路からは、女性のものらしき苦しそうな声が数十分にわたって響く。
もちろん、下水の調査も念入りに行われた。
だがそこに行方不明者の姿も、何らかの痕跡もない。
市警は山荘事件以降急増した猟奇事件との関連を今のところ否定しているが、何がしかの関わりがあるのは疑いのないところだ。

Analysis

The file's reference to voices in the sewers yet their not being found anywhere indirectly refers to the Taxidermy Room underneath the Police Department, which was located near the sewers. In addition, the physical profile for the 8 girls was similar to the physical appearance to Mayor Michael Warren's daughter, implying that Chief Irons' was responsible for abducting the girls and also that the mayor's daughter abduction and later death during the events of the Raccoon City Destruction Incident was only the latest in the serial killings.
