BACKGROUND

AN ALARMING STUDY

Researchers concluded a longitudinal study of levels of violence in Forrest City dating back to the late 1800's. Their alarming conclusion is that violence in Forrest City occurs at a rate at least fourteen times higher than any other city of comparable size. Furthermore, the extremely high levels of violence were observed as far back as available records permitted study, dating back to at least 1875. Scientists involved have been unable to identify any contributing cause that could explain these disconcerting results. 

STRANGE DEVICES FOUND

A hiker found a strange device in the hills overlooking Forrest City. After the picture was posted on social media, other residents posted photos of similar devices they discovered around the city. Investigative reporters have tried without success to determine who owns the devices. They do not emit signals in any known frequency. Rather, they appear to be some type of receiver or detector. Their purpose remains unknown.
