A locally famous songwriter in space blue-grass by the name of "Green Elk" was interdicted and disposed of this Tuesday in the nearby system of Benates. One of his bodyguards said everything happened very fast. When he first dropped out he claimed that Green Elk tried to reason with the murderers before being attacked by a Federal Gunship and a Fer De Lance. "What we have here is not some petty mugging, this was a planned and organized murder that was beyond my capability to stop" He confessed at an interview. Many of Green Elk's fans have turned on local Federal parties, asking why a Federally mandated ship was found killing their beloved Green Elk. As of today, Federal investigation has been conducted as to the whereabouts of the murderers. TENSION RISES. THIRD TIMES A CHARM?
