The Wizard World's Beguiling Broadsheet of Choice
Runaway Killer Captured
On 16 May 2025, in an address to the wizarding community, the Minister of Magic introduced a series of new laws that we are all familiar with. These laws call for the apprehension of people who have committed murder on any scale and for any reason. While they have been in place for some time, the new laws have been difficult to enforce due to the fact that many of the people who fought in the last wizarding war have seemingly disappeared. Those who had not gone into hiding were located and brought in to pay for their crimes at the time that the new laws were introduced. Since then, Minister Macmillan has assigned several teams to the task of sniffing out the remaining criminals for capture.
Progress on this front has been slow, but Ministry officials have been working diligently, and their efforts are beginning to pay off. On 12 April 2027, a team of individuals appointed by the Minister managed to follow a string of clues to locate Katie Wood, who was known by her maiden name, Katie Bell, at the time of the murders. The exact nature of the crimes Wood has committed have not been disclosed, but it is commonly supposed that she was heavily involved in fighting during the war and others have died at her hands.
Wood's trail was picked up just outside of the French Alps, where she had taken up residence in a heavily wooded area. As this area is quite some distance from the Wood family's home, the Ministry has assumed that the woman was assisted in her travels. This belief is certainly cause for concern, as such assistance can be considered as a conspiracy against Minister Macmillan's established laws. Officials have Wood in custody and plan to do all they can to obtain further information regarding friends and accomplices. Wood's husband, Oliver, is also missing and is believed to have been traveling with her.
The ministry indicates that they may have uncovered the trails of several other criminals. Wood will certainly not be the only person apprehended for such crimes against humanity. If you have any information regarding the known murderers currently being sought for capture or are aware of anyone assisting these fugitives, you are advised to notify the Ministry of Magic immediately. These are dangerous people with violent pasts. It is in our best interests to apprehend them as soon as possible.
