Disappearance At Miskatonic Library

Arkham, MA - Professor Martin Henderson disappeared from the Miskatonic Library two days ago under bizarre conditions that have yet to be explained. He has not been seen since, and is considered a missing person by the Arkham Police.

Shortly after moving in, police began receiving complaints from their neighbors regarding strange loud noises which would emanate from the premises at all hours of the night. Police had issued regular warning to the Carmichaels, a reclusive couple who were rarely seen outside of their home ... Full Story
