PETTIBONE FOUND MURDERED WITH CEREMONIAL KNIFE
Mrs. Cassandra Pettibon was found by her maid early this morning with a knife sticking prominently from her upper torso. The murder weapon appears to be an ancient ceremonial blade, perhaps of elven origin. Captain Wheeler of the Tarantian Guard had this to say: "We have no leads at this time, but I would not be surprised to find that this has something to do with the latest craze among high society for elven relics."
He continued, "It is rumored that some of the latest aquisitions of some of our more prominent citizens have been procured by somewhat questionable means. The public can rest assured we are looking in to all of these accusations carefully."
