Operation Log

  • Contacting FBI special Weeden to find out if he was still being investigated and supervised by special agent Whigett
  • Weeden had been suspended after being suspected of assaulting Whigett
    • His explanation was confusing and required more thorough investigation
  • He told that he had woken up in a dark tunnel with no memory of how he got there
    • He was not drunk and had not been mugged
    • He had found himself in a subway tunnel under Harlem
  • After returning home he realized that the gap in his memory was several weeks long
  • When he contacted the FBI, he was arrested for assaulting Whigett with a paper weight and trying to force his way into the FBI evidence storage
    • Whigett was hospitalized and in a coma
    • The evidence from the disappeared FBI special agent Timothy Smith was stored in that location
    • Weeden had been ordered on a psych evaluation
  • Search of Weeden's apartment showed that someone else had searched it before
    • We found the taser he had used at the evidence storage
    • His car was missing, but was found also in Harlem
    • The car was near the subway entrance and mostly unharmed
  • Weeden's psych evaluation report showed that hypnotism had been used in trying to recover his memories
    • The tapes of the session revealed the he had met a man, who had given him some kind of necklace
    • Soon after this he had his assault and attempted break-in
    • Then he had gone to Harlem and in the subway had encountered something so horrible it had caused his amnesia
    • He had escaped the threat and found his way out of the tunnel
  • He could not recall any details about the suspect
  • Robert and Richard took the bus to New York
  • Questioning some derelicts at the subway tunnel confirmed Weeden's story
  • Consulting Laura she told us to use guns only for self-defense
  • Some Transit Authority guards tried to block our way, warning about danger of tunnel collapse, but Richard's badge was enough to bypass them
  • Footprints in an abandoned tunnel may have been left by Weeden
  • We continued by marking our path with chalk
  • The tunnels formed an amazing maze
  • In a crossroads we heard a dragging sound
  • We waited, but kept our weapons holstered as told by Laura
  • Soon a being, an oily black mass, slithered in
    • Richard pulled out a camera before Robert could stop him
    • The thing struck the camera with one of several pseudopodia
    • The situation was tense, but Robert managed to convince the being that we were not here to cause trouble
    • It seemed to understand and was less agitated
    • Then it performed a body search, removing our weapons and most of our gear
    • It carried us further and dumped into a shallow shaft filled with water
  • We found oour way out illuminating it with a lighter
  • After exiting the tunnels wet and ragged we flagged a police car and made up a story about mugging
  • Contacting Laura she told that she had not encountered anything like that being before and that it was not what she had in mind when she warned us
