edit IBAP -- 22.MAY.2006 (3 Prairial, CCXIV) -- Graft Investigation Turns Deadly
- MP Guillaume Fitzjeffer and his family were found dead today in their suburban Baton Rouge estate. M. Fitzjeffer was the focus of intense investigation for the last two weeks following a seizure of nearly 20,000£NAL, found in bundles of 2,000£ in the crisper of his refrigerator, among the lettuce.
"It's almost comical," commented one of the investigators to our IBAP newscrew. "I've heard of money called lettuce, dough, a lot of things. I never thought I'd see it taken so literally."
While initial review of the events suggests this gore were a multiple murder-suicide, neighbors and close friends have come forward claiming that M. Fitzjeffer had never owned a personal weapon, and that the gun found in his home was a plant, either by the real killers or investigators.
Investigators are also investigating leads that Fitzjeffer was laundering Tejan money in return for a share in some Tejan or NAL oil company. Only further investigation will tell. This brings a somber tone to the near-furor that has existed in Louisianne as the Prefects have done extensive house-cleaning against graft. Neither Prefect Marie-Claire Gildersleeve or First-President Young was available for comment. [DH]
