NEWS BULLETIN, ENDIKU SYSTEM
Late last cycle, a latent pressure suit transmitter led the skip tracer vessel Cyan Thick to the body of wanted hijacker Thomas “Torque” Jameson. A known affiliate of the Junkers, Jameson had been sought in connection to multiple charges of theft, transportation, exchange, assault, and murder. He is thought by authorities to have participated in the recent hijacking of the Haldris BX-bound passenger liner Solace 288 that resulted in nineteen deaths.
Jameson was last spotting fleeing into the treacherous outer Mina Belt. Authorities report that he was likely slain by members of his own gang; a result of a personal grudge or illicit deal turned sour. An alternate theory contends that Jameson was a casualty in yet another violent hijacking attempt. At this time, it is not known when, where, or even if such an attempt took place, nor which party was the victor. Thus far, no registered starships or personnel have been reported missing, but witnesses to any recent suspicious activity near Endiku IX are encouraged to file a report.
No family or beneficiary has come forward to claim Jameson’s remains. “That [expletive] scum-sack won’t be missed in this system, that’s for [expletive] sure,” said one Civil Authority investigator (who asked not to be named).
Another anonymous inside source made a more cryptic prediction about the circumstances surrounding Jameson’s death. “All I can tell you is this: This two-microcredit hoodlum is history, but he’s in a book that’s far from over. And I have a feeling the next chapter won’t be long in coming.”
