An unusually large number of interested auditors was present last evening at the meeting of the Academy of Sciences. The walls of the apartment in which the meeting was held were hung with cloth diagrams of the mammoth footprints unearthed within the walls of the Nevada State Prison.

The footprints, according to reporting from the San Francisco Chronicle, measured 19 inches in length and appeared to be wearing some kind of sandal. Scientists estimated them to be from the Pliocene.

This remarkable event is also mentioned in Nature, A Weekly Illustrated Journal of Science, published in (1882-83) at Harvard University.

Did alleged killer imitate his own slasher film? 
Police are alleging that Mark Andrew Twitchell lured Brian Altinger to his death in a deadly reenactment of his latest film - a film where the victim was killed and hacked to pieces.

Even more disturbing - Twitchell's movie featured the victim being tortured for personal information about social network passwords. Twitchell allegedly sent emails to Mr. Altinger's friends after his death in an attempt to make them believe Altinger had left the country.

Twitchell is also a fan of the serial killer television series Dexter and may have picked up a few tricks from the show. Neighbors described plastic over the windows, a Dexter trademark, and the police have yet to find the body. Dexter disposes of his victims at sea. I hope they're looking near water.

There may also be another victim - one who got away. Neighbors report another man seen running from the area being chased by someone wearing a black and gold goalie mask - the same mask used in Twitchell's movie. This second victim may have been lured by the promise of acting in a low budget film.

It seems the neighbors thought he was making another slasher pic. Can you cover up murder by pretending you're shooting a slasher film?
