Ninomae checks out the apartments. [?]: There is nothing relevant to the case here, but the apartments are dingy, miserable things. They are quite large though. It's unclear why the place is built like this. The doors creak, and the cars in the parking lot are mostly missing their wheels. Also, all the apartments are very sparse. Clearly, The Spymaster didn't bother to pay for furniture and cooking utensils.

Terezi and Runner Five both head to the construction site, where construction workers are known to be. They find the place in full activity, workers milling about. Runner Five looks around the site, rolling a [4] and can't immediately see anyone who matches the guy in the video, but then, it was a fairly grainy video. The workers seem friendly enough, but the guy at the fence gate does seem annoyed that you're loitering without safety gear. Terezi gets a [10] and accidentally inhales a cloud of disturbed asbestos while sniffing around. If she walks out of this situation alive, she'll have a problem in about 25 years.

Wood Man goes into the store. A couple clerks stare, but otherwise, they make no moves to throw him out.

Ancient whispers complain at the narrator over the way Ina's addressed. (OOC: PLEASE address my player character as Ina in the majority of circumstances.)

"...Well this ina-in't no place to live..."

Seeing the commotion at the construction site, she goes there and notices Runner Five and French Terezi struggling.

"Yabe..."

"Hm." Sariel crosses the non-bayonet-selling shops off the map. Ruling out a shop from being possibly relevant is still evidence.

They then decide to look more into the victim's history. They were a petty criminal, were they? What kind of criminal? Who might they have pissed off?
(We're IN PA! :D But still settling in, so activity everywhere is still decreased. A bit.)

Then, a blonde girl who's been dramically watching from the bcakground all this time (sure, let's go with that) decides to actually enter. "Now, where would be a good place to find out more stuff..."

She nervously greets the store runners

"He— hey there, I was wondering if... you had any bayonettes?"

Wonderful interrogation.

"Asbestos? Yabe, that doesn't bode well for your health!"

No, Terezi, she's not swearing with the "Yabe", she's saying "oh no" with that.

Wood Man buys some Gummy Worms. Store brand, of course, they're a whole half-cent cheaper per ounce.

Meanwhile, Scott heads to the warehouse district. It's surprisingly okay. A red-headed figure wearing sunglasses and wearing a puffy greyish-green jacket, presumably a local guard, is sitting in a booth in front of the Strickland Warehouse. On closer inspection, it looks like they're asleep, and wearing the sunglasses to hide that. The Chemical Supply warehouse is apparently unguarded.

Seven asks around about Jane's actions some more [8]: It only reveals more of the same. People are hesitant to talk, and Jane was apparently known as a petty criminal in the area. Nothing major, mostly pickpocketing, and a little vandalism from time to time. However, you do learn that she used to work with another guy in the Catkin, running an illegal Razzle-Dazzle game. That guy was one of the previous victims of the killer. In fact, most of the victims you hear about either lived or were often around the Catkin.

Sariel gets a [?], crosses off the Arms Dealer, the Grocery Store, and the Antique shop. It looks like only the Pawn Shop might carry such a thing, with the eclectic mix of goods there. Then, on investigating the history of Jane Doe [8] discovers much the same as Seven, except for the additional insight that she may have been the mule for whatever the bar puts in the potato skins.

With three people (Ina, Terezi, and Runner Five) looking around the construction site, the guy at the gate gets annoyed and makes them put on helmets. After that, some united searching later and asking around, they come back to one name, Mr. Peter Romero. He's the only one who drinks at Horace's Bar after work, the workers say. He's in the break room, eating lunch when you find him, his handlebar mustache filled with sandwich crumbs.

B-Sha heads to the office at block six. It looks like it's undergoing refurbishment right now, but the door is open, and there's no workers to be seen. A sign hanging in the lobby has a list of grievances from the workers. It looks like the painters and carpet-installers and such are on strike, and no one's in the building.

Lynne asks about bayonets [7]:, and is immediately shown a selection of archaic military memorabilia, including a selection of bayonets.

Bowser heads to block 7, and sees two dead bodies and the TCPD officer on scene, in full riot gear. pointedly ignoring the face-down guy in the corner, and tossing a roll of crime-scene tape from hand to hand while guarding the one dead body in the middle of the tape.

here you go bud.

Wood Man emerges out of the store and gives the gummy worms to Snap.

"What're we tako 'bouting Mr. Peter again? Is he a possible sus pecked from the crime scene?"

...He was on that video following Jane just before she was probably killed.
