Consortium Traitor Chooses Suicide -
Brendon Wycheck Reporting Live
Hello everyone, Brendon Wycheck here for the Global Newswire. The whole world now watches with bated breath as it appears the Consortium command vessel Zenlil and her crew have won another round in a hard fought battle against an unknown enemy. And I do mean the whole world is watching; our traffic numbers have progressively gone off the charts since this incident began. Six hundred? Really? My producer is telling me there are six hundred million of you watching this, right now. Let me correct my tie...
For the first time since the end of the Angelov incident, we've just received a report directly from the K-1 network. It looks as though a virus of some kind was introduced into Zenlil's computer system and this is what was blocking automated reports from reaching us. The implanter of this virus we're being told is the same person responsible for the murder of Pawn 7, Matthew Wilson, earlier today. The virus has been repaired but unfortunately the culprit proceeded to commit suicide after being confronted red handed by new recruit Bishop Six. Details are unclear, but I can tell you that she used an illegal disintegration grenade to end her own life.
The now deceased officer found responsible was Patricia Thornthwaite, or Pawn 32, and with her death it is believed the threat aboard Zenlil has finally been pacified. Patricia Thornthwaite was hired by the Consortium King at the behest of Dr. David Schelter, back in 2039. Before that she worked under Schelter at Worldview Industries for almost ten years and was most well known for her hand in developing the first C-3800 ever commissioned, Stormbird. She was recently married and for all intents and purposes has a spotless record with the Consortium. Her suicide will of course be investigated and confirmed using Consortium Mind Communicator records.
At this time it is unclear exactly what led to such a highly esteemed officer's murderous actions on this fateful day. Though, we have been told she was not connected to Kiril Angelov and the Homeless Mercenaries.
We hope to learn more soon, so stick around. My name is Brendon Wycheck for the Global Newswire.
