Prologue: Initial Filing

A 'Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi' fanfiction.

Disclaimer: The novel 'Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu'/'The Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi' is the creation of Nagaru Tanigawa. No disrespect is intended by the posting of this fanfiction, as I do not own the characters or settings involved. I'm merely dabbling with another set of paints. ;)

Additionally, a character is borrowed from Higurashi, which is the creation of Ryukishi07, but don't read too much into that.

-Victim identification-

Name: DO NOT DISCLOSE ('Student K')
Year: 1st
Educational file: (attached photocopies 2-12)

-Discovery witness-

Name: DO NOT DISCLOSE ('Student T')
Year: 1st
Witness account: (see investigating officer for transcript)
Summary: Student T returned to class 1-5 shortly after 17:40 PM to get a notebook he had forgotten, reports shock on discovery of Student K's remains. (Claims not to have interfered with crime scene; lack of bloodstains on self/clothing appear consistent.) Student T then called for help from watch-duty teacher and classroom 1-5 advisor Okabe Ryugo. Okabe then maintained watch over the scene as student T called police as per policy.

-SOCO Notes-

NOTE: These are INCOMPLETE notes IN PROCESS, for an update, please see chief investigating officer/SOCO chief.
Student K was found roughly in the center of the classroom, surrounded by knocked over desks/chairs (photos 1-3, 5-9). Despite the lack of obvious defensive wounds, SOCO notes that overturned furniture/cut clothing is consistent with attempted evasion. Blood spatter is severe, but there are no footprints/obvious bloody fingerprints at the scene (even from the victim).

Irregularities: Student K has no obvious ligature marks or bruises; it is likely that more than one assailant was involved to hold Student K in place, but there is only one void in blood spatter. Lack of significant defensive wounds does not match with height of spatter (victim was standing, immobile or suspended during the attack).

(SOCO chief notes: The scene will be held for an additional 24 hours. The physical evidence is somewhat inconsistent, but it seems unlikely that any assailant would have escaped blood spatter on clothing.)

-Investigator Opinion-

The brutality of the murder suggests that this was intensely personal. Multiple stab wounds, and numerous slashes. The perpetrator is most likely male and very strong to hold Student K prone and also swing the knife. Otherwise, it is most likely multiple perpetrators. A task force will begin interviewing students tomorrow to find out more about the situation. Currently, we don't have specific suspects beyond Student T.
