Authorities Cover Up Horrific Murder at Jita 4-4?
JITA, THE FORGE REGION – On Friday, the Caldari State Navy Police released a press statement that a Minmatar female had been murdered on 4-4 Navy Assembly Plant int Jita. This is not an uncommon story, murders occur every day on the larger stations, especially one as busy as Jita 4-4. However, no details have been released other than the suspect is believed to be the pretend capsuleer con-artist that the Police had already issued warnings about.
Tech 4 News has learnt that this may not be a simple murder and details of the horrific injuries sustained by the victim have been suppressed. T4N spoke to the janitors that discovered the body. Tanamachi is a Technician 3rd Class in the Waste Disposal and Recycling section of the stations engineering crew. Tech 4 News spoke to him yesterday:
“Yeah, I saw the body. Me and Kakuta had gone to check on a blockage in one of the garbage chutes on deck 54. It was jammed up tight so we had to go down to deck 55 to try and get under what was causing the blockage. Anyway Kakuta opens an access panel and an arm falls out! A severed human arm! We poke a stick in there and the rest of her comes tumbling out. Her arms and legs had been cut off to get her in the shute but that wasn’t all. She’d been cut. And I ain’t saying just a little. She’d been sliced and diced like from one of them horror holo-vids. I’ll be having nightmares for months. And you know all me and Kakuta got? Half a day off. That’s it, half a day after seeing that! I’m telling you, a man don’t forget that for half a day off! She’d died a horrible death, that was no robbery, that was personal. Someone wanted that poor Minny woman to suffer. You should have seen it!”

T4N, under a false media outlet name, contacted the station security office of the Caldari Navy who own the station. They had this to say:
“We do not comment on the specifics of any murder. Unfortunately in cases like this we have a lot of people confessing and we need to ensure that details are kept out of the media so we can separate the real suspects from the fakes.”
When asked regarding the involvement of the con-artist fake capsuleer the police did confirm he was a suspect without giving details why.
“We can confirm that the individual who has been posing as a capsuleer on Jita 4-4, drugging and robbing women is a person of interest in this investigation. However at this stage we are unable to give further information.”
The wanted man, reported by Tech 4 News last month, appears to be the prime suspect and women are warned to be extra vigilant on Jita 4-4.
Tech 4 News was also able to obtain copies of the preliminary autopsy report. This is complied before the Chief Medical Examiner undertakes the full examination. The report refers to a number of major wounds but perhaps the most disturbing is the following section.
“The arms, legs and torso all show shallow incisions caused by some form of blade. The depth of the wounds and their very specific targeting appear to indicate that they have been inflicted purely to cause pain and distress. Preliminary inspections shows the victim was alive when the incisions were made, given the clotting of the blood in each wound. An initial count puts the number of separate wounds at over 100.”
Clearly this is not a simple murder for the purposes of robbery. Anyone with any information on this murder is advised to contact the Caldari Navy Police on comm channel 55.
