Story So Far

I guess I should take some time to explain what happened to this blog.  I’m in way over my head… and I should probably give it a rest, but I’m on to something important here, everybody.  Something criminal.  I think this story was swept under the rug, over a year ago, and I can’t leave that alone.  This is what I’ve found so far:

Last month I stumbled across a blog post that made me kind of uneasy.  I’m not sure why it stuck in my head, except for some reason it seemed like a call for help.  And I’ve never really been the sort of person to let sleeping dogs lie.  It turns out the guy in question was one H.M. Wright, I found that out by tracking down his facebook profile.

I almost left it at that.  I mean, it really wasn’t any of my business… but there was something strange about Wright’s timeline.  He hadn’t updated in over a year, hell, none of his friends had updated in that time either.  What’s more, Wright seemed like a very intelligent guy, but toward the end of his posts he started to act pretty strange.  

When I dug a little deeper, everything changed.  Wright’s girlfriend, Alicia, was warning about hospitals and disappearances.  His friends were acting nervous.  And I found security camera footage hidden in a link from Alicia’s profile.  There’s some foul play at work here.  Wright vanished, and no one’s heard from him since.

I’m not going to give up, someone has to know what happened to these people.  I’ve been handing out flyers and asking questions all over NYC.  But the more we work together, the closer we’ll get to the truth.  Watch their facebook profiles and  other links.  If you find a clue that reveals a piece of the mystery,  send me a question or email.  We can solve it if we work together.

Bullshit

If Wright’s wall can’t give me the full picture, I’ll just have to try a different angle.  There are other leads, other pieces to this puzzle.  Like Kim Russo.  The last of his friends from that home video.  

See what happens in this post?  She freaks the hell out.  April 16th at 3 pm, that’s only a few days before everything went bad.  No way that’s coincidence.  Let’s keep pushing at this, the answer is in the timestamps.  It has to be.

This is the beginning of something.  I don’t know how far it will go, or how ugly the whole thing is.  I don’t care.  What happened here wasn’t normal, and someone has to set the record straight…
Spread the word any way you can.  If that means digging through every last shred of his facebook profile, do it.  There have to be some other clues that I missed.  Wright’s out there, and I’m going to find him no matter what it takes.  But I can’t do it alone.  I need your help.

The Source?

I’m so lost.  No matter where I look, all I find are more riddles.  What does this link mean?  Why does Wright seem to think it’s the key to everything?  From everything I’ve read he must have been a total genius.  But I don’t understand any of it.  I have a enough hard time following what he was talking about on a good day, so during a complete mental breakdown, I have no idea.  

If it was a breakdown, that is.  I can’t get a read on it… something freaked him out, that’s for sure.  It was so sudden.  Did Leto make a move, try to cover it up by getting Wright committed?  Or was it an act all along?  Just what the hell was this password, and why was it was so damn important?

I spent hours staring at facebook today.  Just clicking from link to link, trying to find some kind of pattern.  These profiles all went idle one after another…they’re like snapshots, captured in time.  How did I miss that?
Alicia’s page is so confusing.  By the end—I mean the most recent posts, the ones near the top of her wall—she’s clearly struggling.  It all comes back to Wright.   The things he says, before he’s hospitalized I guess.  They sound so crazy.  I still don’t understand them.
But I found something else.  By accident I clicked on Alicia’s deviantart page, it looked totally mundane at first but NOTHING is what it seems here.  At the bottom-right corner, in the comments section, there’s a small link from a username I’ve never seen before.  It leads to a video.  On youtube.  With security camera footage of both of them.

I have no idea how this relates to anything else.

Bad Blood

Look at this photo.  Just try and tell me everything’s okay with these two.  No, I don’t think so.  There has to be more to this.

All these comments, it’s like these folks had no idea what was happening.  Or, they refused to admit something bad was going down.  I know there was bad blood between Wright and Leto.  Can’t make sense of it yet, everything’s out of sequence.  But Alicia’s wall confirms it.

I couldn’t find anything about these people online.  No history, no articles or interviews, nothing in the news whatsoever.  That’s suspicious as hell and I can’t ignore it.  I have a responsibility to figure out why.

Went for a walk and I saw this in a gutter today.  I don’t know.  I’m so tired.

#$#%?

I can’t believe it.  This is insane.  There’s got to be some rational explanation.  People don’t do things like this, not ever.  It just doesn’t happen!

How could anyone… what the hell was he doing in a hospital in the first place?  I don’t understand this at all.  She says “someone did this to him,” did Wright get in a fight?  How bad was it?  Do they have any idea who did it??  I sure as hell don’t know, because it’s the LAST THING she ever posted!

What kind of person leaves a status like that?  It sounds so, desperate.  something awful happened here.  I can’t do this anymore.

Dissertations

The whole thing has been bugging me for the last couple of days.  I probably shouldn’t get involved at all but, I dunno, there’s a story at the bottom of it.  Leto was another guy in that video, the one who kept ragging on Wright.  I wonder what the deal with that is?

It’s weird that Leto stopped posting just about the same time Wright did.  Not for nothing, but I still bet it’s one of those social experiments.  Like when someone goes cold turkey on the internet for a few months.  I think Grant Sullivan has to be their adviser (but why you would friend a professor is beyond me).  Kind of funny how Leto freaks out here!

I saw that Wright was tagged in a video and I decided to give it a look.  I know, I know, it’s sort of creepy.  I really shouldn’t be digging through this guy’s personal information.  It’s just, I can’t shake the feeling that something’s wrong here.

So Alicia must be his girlfriend.  They make a pretty cute couple, even if she is a little…pushy.  Honestly I was more surprised at Wright himself, I didn’t expect him to be so nervous.  Edgy, maybe, but not outright rude. 

I guess those other folks are Wright’s friends.  I mean, if you can call them that…it’s a really dysfunctional bunch.  I don’t know what Leto has against Wright, but it’s got to be more than an academic dispute.  Did something happen to Wright, is that what this is all about?  If so, when?
