Just weeks after several inmates were discovered missing from Azkaban following a break in, Desdemona Warrick, the 32-year-old witch who had been imprisoned for murder ten years ago and recently on the run has been found dead in Cork county, Ireland. The injuries sustained by Warrick were those of werewolf origin and indicate a struggle, however the motive is unclear as of now.
Authorities are investigating clues found on the scene which may in fact be linked to Dominique Melfire and Picus Grothill who are on the top list of suspects involved in this crime as they were both thought to be spotted with Warrick several days before her death. Law enforcement from all departments of the Ministry are currently on watch in Cork and surrounding counties.
If you have information that leads to the location and capture of these fugitives, the reward set by the Ministry has been increased to twenty-four thousand galleons. They ask that the public remain cautious when out.
