One day while Joe and Jill Hemp were walking through Chronic swamp they came
across a trail of blood in the water. They followed the trail until it stopped at a dead body.
The body was of a man who was wearing a camouflage outfit. They immediately ran back
to their house, which was not far from the murder site and called the police. Their house
was located right on the edge of the swamp.
When the police got there they roped off the whole area so they could start their
investigation. At first it looked as if it was definitely a murder, but after a few days of
investigation the police concluded that the man was probably a hunter who had either fallen
out of a tree or just tripped and broken his neck. A broken neck was definitely what killed
the man. The only problem with this hypothesis was that it left a few unanswered
questions. If the man was a hunter where did his gun or bow go? How often did you find
a dead hunter just lying in the middle of a swamp? Even with these questions police told
the Hemps that it was an accident and they were in no danger.
The Hemp's life went on with no interruptions until about two weeks after the
hunter was found. Another body had been found in the swamp. This time the body was a
male whom had a business suit on. The police came back and investigated this death.
After about a week they concluded again that it was a broken neck that had killed the
victim. There were no signs of a struggle so the investigators said that it was some type of
freak accident. They also told the Hemps to stay out of the swamp.
