<@Itzpapalotl> Who picked up the children?
<@Itzpapalotl> Who authorized the vacation?
<@Itzpapalotl> Was the authorization for vacation verbal or 'sent in'?
<@Itzpapalotl> If the authorization was sent in, try to track where it came from and who sent it.
<@Itzpapalotl> If the authorization was verbal (and not from actual mom or dad) try to get audio sample to compare to other vocal recordings.
<@Itzpapalotl> Is it normal for children to just up and leave the school without direct parental authority? (If it wasn't the mom or faked father info)
<@Itzpapalotl> Is the entire school comprimised and/or any staff or was this solely an outside job with stupid clueless school administrators?
<@Itzpapalotl> Look for any tracers/tappings/etc. of outside influence. IE - Are the school records still be monitored by whoever did this? If so, try to trace them down/get info.
<@Itzpapalotl> If someone came to physically pick up the children, what did they look like, who did they identify themselves as, etc.
<@Itzpapalotl> Ok, I think I shall skitter off.

<Lemon> Marcy rolled 8 on an unknown check with a bonus of 3.
<Lemon> Jester rolled 9 on a Investigation/KNO/Cpx1 check with a bonus of 2.

<@Itzpapalotl> Who picked up the children?
* Picked up by a black sedan with plates identifying it as a fleet vehicle. The driver claimed to be from Exeter's Finest Luxury Transport

<@Itzpapalotl> Who authorized the vacation?
* Authorized by a written letter (digital, of course) from Lorentz. The letter has an identifying stamp which allowed the school to authenticate the letter.

<@Itzpapalotl> Was the authorization for vacation verbal or 'sent in'?
* Sent in, as above.

<@Itzpapalotl> If the authorization was sent in, try to track where it came from and who sent it.
* It came from an Xpresspost Authenticated Mail centre in Rapid City. Places such as these are used to send messages which are of an important nature, as they log every transmission and provide authentication. Sort of like getting a document notarized.

<@Itzpapalotl> If the authorization was verbal (and not from actual mom or dad) try to get audio sample to compare to other vocal recordings.
* There are no vocal records. There *is* a visual of the driver of the sedan, however. He doesn't match any records you have. Fairly tall, somewhat slim, tanned, brown hair, eye colour indeterminate. He was wearing the black uniform that the taxi company uses for its drivers.

<@Itzpapalotl> Is it normal for children to just up and leave the school without direct parental authority? (If it wasn't the mom or faked father info)
* Daily normal, no. It's not uncommon for limos or other cars to pick up kids, however. Exeter hasn't got very tight security outside of important services or government, nor do the outlying communities - crime is very low there.

<@Itzpapalotl> Is the entire school comprimised and/or any staff or was this solely an outside job with stupid clueless school administrators?
* The school doesn't seem to be compromised.

<@Itzpapalotl> Look for any tracers/tappings/etc. of outside influence. IE - Are the school records still be monitored by whoever did this? If so, try to trace them down/get info.
* Mem does a thorough sweep and doesn't come up with anything unusual. One of the kids seems to be hacking into the system once in awhile, using it to play pranks. It's clear he's trying to change test scores, but doesn't know how to. No one has caught him yet.

<@Itzpapalotl> If someone came to physically pick up the children, what did they look like, who did they identify themselves as, etc.
* See above. They didn't give a name, only identified his company and who he was here for, showed some ID and a copy of the notarized letter that was given to to the school earlier, and then took the kids.

<@Itzpapalotl> Ok, I think I shall skitter off.
* You do that.

<@Jester> Two more questions on Itz's line of investigation, Savant: does the driver match the records for Exeter's Finest Luxury Transport, and to where were they transported?

1) Aha. No, he's not on any records. Nor is the vehicle registered to that company.

2) The letter said that they were being taken back home, and then being taken for a vacation at Port Aurora.

[19:49:34] <Jester> OK, so we need to do a search of records for this vehicle. Who owns it, or whether it was stolen, and if so, where it turned up.
[19:50:23] <Savant> I'll want another investigation roll, kno cpx 1. simple.
[19:50:43] <Jester> !check 3 2 Investigation/KNO/Cpx1
[19:50:44] <Lemon> Jester, your Investigation/KNO/Cpx1 roll result is ( 5 3 5 ) + (2 Mod) : 7
[19:53:12] <Savant> Rental car from Exeter. Shows as being rented out that day, returned two days later. Note in the bill says that the customer gave the vehicle a free detailing.
[19:53:30] <Jester> k, so now we have to start back-tracing the rental.
[19:53:49] <Jester> Whose driver's license is on the rental? Does it match the picture? Who paid for the rental? How did it come in?

<Jester> Whose driver's license is on the rental? Does it match the picture? Who paid for the rental? How did it come in?

1) The drivers' licence is registered to one Delvan Smidt, of Exeter. A little searching reveals that he lives in a small apartment complex near the south end of the bay.

2) The picture matches the pictures from school's security footage.

3) Paid for by Delvan Smidt on a credit card. Walk in sale. Same fellow returned it as he who rented it.

[18:39] <Marcy> Okay, can we get his schedule, specifically looking for places where he would be secluded and times where we would have an opportunity to talk without making him late?
[18:40] <Savant> yes, you have that. It would be best to get him after work, and before getting home for the evening. He runs several errands during the day. Apparently he only buys fresh groceries, because he goes and shops at the grocery store almost daily. He often eats out for dinner as well.

<@Detro> Following up on Arlington: 1) Arlington's job responsibilities? 2) Any special access that he has to the building, plans, security systems, etc. 3) What's his schedule like? Does he take long lunches? Work late often? 4) Does he have a routine he sticks to? Places he goes often?

1) ARlington is in charge of hires/fires, basically. He's in charge of making sure every employee is thoroughly vetted, is not a security risk, is in charge of monitoring and adjusting payrolls, in charge of ... well, a lot of the odds-and-ends of having a few thousand people in one place at one time.

2) You don't know. You'll have to investigate further.

3) Shar's information tells you that he works like many Northco high-ups. He takes long lunches, works an erratic schedule, and conducts a lot of meetings. He's a good manager, however. He's had the position for almost twenty cycles now.

4) There are a few restaurants he favours, he only buys booze from one liquor store, and he goes down to the local book store once a week.

<@Prescot> Do we know how long he has been a valued customer on the card? Brand new or a long term member?


1) He's had the card for three cycles now. they recently upped his limit to five thousand marks. Never anything very big, his credit's okay, but he's not going anywhere quick.

[20:08:29] <Jester> We need a bunch of info to start. a) Is the dead woman the wife? b) Is the voice on the tape the same voice as the "cuckoo" recording?
[20:08:45] <Jester> This guy, whomever he is, has a partner, remember.
[20:08:55] <Savant> a) yes. b) it is the voice on the other end of the phone.
[20:09:23] <Jester> It's the "U" voice?
[20:09:52] <Jester> http://talons.mcc3d.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=328 <-- In this, I mean.
[20:11:14] <Savant> No.
[20:11:43] <Jester> So he is the cuckoo voice.
[20:12:09] <Savant> the guy on the recording is the wire reply, who says "Acknowledged"
