[Early in the morning on July 5th, after Jane Smith's uncharacteristic behavior was put to an end, were someone to go on a walk throughout the park, they might come across an unusual sight.

Jane Smith is sitting on a park bench hidden somewhere between the trees. Or at least, at a glance it appears to be her, but at second glance, she doesn't look exactly the same. Her features are younger, more a 24 year old girl than a 30 year old mother, and there's something less perfect and put together in her looks.

Maybe this time, it's Samantha Achewood, the girl Jane Smith used to be, sitting by herself. She appears perfectly contented and peaceful with her eyes closed, perhaps napping. But on closer inspection, she isn't breathing and she has no pulse, and her body is cold and lifeless to the touch.

There's no cause of death to find here. Samantha simply went to sleep and will never wake up.

But that isn't the only surprising thing one might notice about Mayfield today. No matter where you look or what you might do, Officer Grady is nowhere to be found.]

[Romana finds the body in the morning, coming home from Church. Overhead the sky is a brilliant blue, it's another near perfect day. And yet, even as Romana takes the woman's pulse she doesn't expect much. Steady fingers press against Samantha's wrist, then throat, and not a single beat of pulse can be felt. Romana sighs softly, kneeling before the woman, taking Samantha's hands in her own.

And in the warm beginnings of day, Romana murmurs the last rites to the long gone woman, her own eyes closed. The words are soft, in Latin, and when she finishes she waits a few minutes before standing. Silently Romana brushes her skirt off before turning and continuing on. There's nothing more she can do for this woman.]
