The Investigator walks into an old ramshackle house; he had received a lead on this person which he didn't want to ignore. He was glad he didn't. There were pictures everywhere, and all of them were of the same person, with red painted X's going through their face. This person clearly had a problem, perhaps it was an enemy, or maybe just a poor soul targeted by this insane lunatic. All of the accusations made sense now. Every time the suspicion was placed on the poor nurse this... "Executioner" made sure the whole town was convinced they were guilty. No wonder the Executioner was so upset when the town realized they had been tricked, and voted the target innocent. The Investigator sat down and tried to make sense of what could drive someone to target just an innocent nurse. He racked his brain. Perhaps it was a long time ago when the nurse accused him... but obviously this obsession was going way further than that. No one knows why the Executioner targets you, but their silver tongues will try their hardest to get you lynched, whatever the cost may be.
