  1. Who could it possibly be?? This will go way over the heads of the police. One thing I don’t understand though, is the way people are killed. They kill all opponents but they must do it with.. a dozen stabs on average? what happened to ‘just kill’, instead of slaughter? I’m curious, though it may seem irrelevant, exactly what happens during the last two hours.
