Young Cancer Patient Kills Cab Driver

Wednesday, February 25th, 2015

Late in the evening of February fourteenth a six year old cancer patient, whose name is being kept confidential by authorities, escaped from hospice care after experiencing what her doctors have called “The worst drug interaction we’ve ever seen.” After slipping out of her room and the facility in nothing but a hospital style gown she somehow convinced a cab driver to take her to a bar called “The Traveler” in South Tucson. Upon arrival she stabbed the cab driver in the throat with a pair of medical scissors smuggled out of the hospice. She then stumbled into the bar where she immediately collapsed. Jordan Miles, the bar’s owner and operator, called the authorities immediately.

Security recordings from both the hospice and the bar show the patient stealing the scissors, leaving through a side exit, entering the taxi, arriving at the bar, and killing the cab driver.

Police currently have her under 24-hour watch at a new hospice where she is now tied down with bed restraints. Her doctors have claimed that this is unnecessary as she slipped into a coma following the events.

The District Attorney’s Office has yet to issue a statement regarding whether they will pursue a case against the young girl.

Children’s Remains Found in Bar’s Basement

Tuesday, January 13th, 2015

Authorities arrested Ruben Peters owner of La Chienne, a small establishment in Green Valley, Saturday night for his involvement in a local meth operation. Following his arrest a full search of the premises revealed a secret basement only accessible through a small trap door in his office. Inside officers discovered the skeletal remains of two children inside a pool of blood, water, and excrement. Initial reports suggest that they were victims of torture and cannibalism. CSI will be performing dental and genetic analysis to confirm the identities of the children. Mr. Peters will not be charged, however, as he died in custody of drug related complications. The investigation is ongoing to find any associates Mr. Peters may have had.

Strange Shootout on South East Side

Tuesday, January 13th, 2015

A warehouse near Valencia and Kolb in Tucson, AZ was the site of a bizarre occurrence Monday evening. According to the sole survivor of the incident a group of hairy men dressed in ponchos and wielding revolvers arrived at the warehouse on horseback. The group opened fire and killed everyone on the premises except a single woman who was incapacitated by a bottle being smashed against her head. Police found only dead bodies, a single unconscious woman, some loose horses, and over five hundred kilograms of cocaine when they arrived at the scene after receiving multiple calls regarding gunfire.

According to the witness, who has since been placed in protective custody, the warehouse was being run by members of the Sinoloa Federation, a cartel based in central and western Mexico. Because of this affiliation authorities believe it is likely that the men who assaulted the warehouse were either members of a rival cartel or a local drug concern
