MAN KILLS BABY

 

Today, a family grieves over the loss of their two-year-old baby, who was viciously slaughtered by a psychopath. The two-year-old was playing in the park with his mother and father when a man “appeared out of nowhere” and slashed the child’s throat with a knife. Despite the paramedics’ best efforts and swift response time, the child could not be saved, and was said to have died at the scene. The assailant fled the scene, and a manhunt in the town of Braunau am Inn was led by police. Within six hours, the assailant was apprehended and is now in custody.

The parents, who do not wish to be named, have commented on the matter. The mother stated, “How could anyone do such a thing to an innocent and wide-eyed child such as ours? The maniac who did this should be burned alive.” The father had this to say, “The man’s clearly a lunatic. Our son had barely begun his life. The filthy dog who did this should be executed.” There is outrage in the town, and people have called for the death penalty. No word has been mentioned yet of the criminal’s punishment, but the information will be made public after the case goes to trial. The man has, as of yet, remained unidentified. Police have been unable to procure any identification, and the man refuses to assist the police in any way, Chief of Police Karl Freud had this to say: “This is one of the biggest tragedies to ever befall our town, and rest assured this man will be dealt with in the harshest manner possible.”

We all wait with bated breath to see how this all unfolds. Karl Freud has revealed a statement from the accused in relation to his actions: “I’m not going to explain myself to you people. None of you will understand. I knew I would become a figure to be hated, but someone had to take the fall. I sully my name in the hope that everyone will forget the victim’s name – and the world will forget him.” These cryptic words only further prove the irrationality of the man’s conscience, and this paper, with the permission of the parents, have allowed us to leave a memorial here in the child’s name, so that his name lives on, written on paper, and in our hearts. This is in defiance of the child killer’s strange agenda, and in honour of the victim.

 

RIP
