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.
