What you are about to read is the first entry in a collection of articles, letters and journal entries written by a number of people from east and southeastern Chernarus. The information contained within these sources represents how little the public actually knew about ‘The Outbreak’, and how survivors have recorded their lives on the run.

Subject: Mysterious Casualties
There is something unsettling about these murders. I expected some sort of violent assault, but the victims are mutilated far beyond sexual abuse. We found three corpses, but the remains we saw were literally torn apart, rent limb from limb. Yet no animals or any of the wildlife in Chernarus would be able to cause such devastation.
We've found a trail of leading up into the hills. We are staying in a local bed-and-breakfast for the night, then set out at dawn. We will discover what killed those people, and make sure it never happens again.
A young couple were last night attacked by a mysterious man that they found wandering the forest areas between Lopatino and Myshkino. The couple claim that they spotted the man, staggering, as if wounded, and then stopped to help him. After talking to the man with absolutely no response, the couple decided to guide him by his hands toward their car so they could drive him to the hospital. However, the man attacked the couple and proceeded to bite the husband on the calf of his left leg.
*warning, the following contains graphic images*
As seen on these pictures of the bitten leg, a dark infection seems to be working it’s way through the victim's bloodstream. The patient has meanwhile been transferred to the hospital in Serverograd and his situation has been declared critical.
The police are looking for any information regarding the man in the forest, and are conducting a search operation to find the guilty.
*more to follow soon, just wanted to give a small taste of how this little project is going to work*
