Rural monsters? Unlikely. But journalist Nick will get to the truth of this small, strange town... no matter what.

(with the whole story happening on Twitter and in the LongShorts app)
How can you tell when your journey is truly over...? Have some jackass total your car.
Helpline seems to think this is my fault. Tone suggests I should plan my breakdowns better #customerservicefail
Guess I can find someone to interview at the motel. The livestock business is big here, I'm sure they've heard of the cattle slayings.
Janet (owns 3 poodles she likes better than her daughter) has definitely NOT heard any nasty rumors about livestock slaying
Janet (allergic to peanuts) thinks such a nice young man (me) (blush) should write about nice things.
Matt (born here, you betcha) loves the idea of a monster terrorizing the farmers. Hopes it's an especially bloodthirsty one.
I would have thought that after seeing something -- like that -- I shouldn't be able to sleep.
Desk Deputy (Willis, 22 but looks 16, complete with acne) hopes I'm feeling better, as I "looked pretty sick last night."
I'd like to be sarcastic re his amazing observational skills, but the concern is actually appreciated.
A willingness to be interviwed about these murders would be even more appreciated, but Willis has clearly been ordered to keep his spotty jaw shut.
Okay. Giant Stack Of Newspapers, ready yourselves. We are about to get very well aquainted.
Aha! "Confusion and Horror as Pet-Killing Spree Continues" - March 12th, 1997
..."Legendary Monster Responsible for Animal Deaths?" - March 19, 1997
"Legend goes back generations", "Some claim to have seen it" (!!!)
There was a guy. In the library.
He had a knife. And he was wearing a mask. Who wears a mask? It wasn't even a ski mask, it looked like it was made of paper or something
He didn't kill me. He told me to leave. Put the knife to my throat and told me to leave
Get out or you’ll get hurt, he said.
