Yesterday the bloodthirsty rampage of Mr Michael Paxton came to an end. “Bloody Mike” as he’s now being known started his reign of terror on the Frank Desert Apartment Building Yesterday morning. First he broke in and killed his neighbour Mr Hillary Clapton with a firearm and then threw his wife Sandra Clapton out the window of her 30th floor apartment. After this he found and brutally beat upon the 17 year old Steve Johnson and later 31 year old Buck Cravitis on the 30th floor staircase. It is at this point residents from nearby floors reported hearing his strange hysterical wailing. “He was sort of crying out about… I don’t know- something” one woman put it.
Once police arrived they worked their way up all the staircases at once leaving Michael trapped. He proceeded to throw up blood across the hall before stumbling back to his apartment ‘as if in a stupor’ and went about crudely fortifying his door. What happened from this point is unclear until police reached him and broke down the door just as Paxton flung himself out the window to his death.
What drove a seemingly normal man to commit such a horrific collection of crimes? Even now no one is sure. “Mr Paxton’s home life is being investigated so that the roots of this horrible crime can be more fully understood” said the Chicago City Police Chief. “But we want to assure the city this was merely a freak incident and should not be attributed to some deeper cause”.
