Body Found In Magical London
Last weekend, a body of a middle-aged man was found in the streets of magical London under suspicious circumstances. Witnesses state that there seemed to be nothing unusual before the body was found in the area. One witness claims to have seen a shadowy figure, but cannot be certain of sightings - she is currently being questions by Ministry Officials.

The chief auror on the case, Graham Farnaby, discloses key information that he believes may be important. He states that the victim had a snake and skull symbol printed onto their forearm. So far, nobody has come forward with any known meaning of this; Chief Farnaby expresses that this is vital to the case.

Meanwhile, others around the area believe the crime may be linked to the notorious Grindelwald, but these suspicions have yet to be confirmed or denied by the Ministry.
