December 15th, 2006 Cult-Like Murders Continue! More bodies continue to add up as the Astoria Police Department intensify their search for the culprits. Last week, Roy Howard (21) was found slain on a hiking path in the Western Astoria woods by an unknown assailant (or assailants). This is the fourth addition to the increasing body count of the suspected cult. Information has been released on the cause of death as “ritualistic” and “grotesque” with portions of his flesh being torn away. The Astoria Police Department is increasing its efforts in finding and bringing this group of murderers to justice. If anyone has any information regarding strange sightings or someone suspected of being involved with this group, you are urged to contact law enforcement immediately.
