Missing since: 12 Aug 2010
Notes left: 38
I'll be building this over the next little bit; feel free to add any to the thread that I've yet to type up (start from the back? ^u^) and/or discuss their meanings with me! If anyone organizes the wikia's info for memos, feel free to copypasta these and I'll drop by there to wax symbolism with you.

One request for help: I totally blew off the opportunity to copy down the secret books in the Centennial Building's archives that could be found with the UV light (got the Devil's Pit history signs, though). If anyone comes across the text, lemme know.


Early Residents of Devil's Pit (On table inside Devil's Pitstop)

Early Residents
of Devil's Pit

Did you know that Native Americans used to call Silent Hill home? Anthropologists know this because of the various artifacts found here, specifically in the cave systems surrounding Devil's Pit! A number of these relics indicate ceremonies being held for the deity Kwekwaxawe, suggesting his importance to the people here. In fact, one of the names given to this area was "Kwekwaxawe Kanesda" - "Nest of the Raven"

Train Accident Article (Found on storage room door in the mines.)

Train accident at Devil's Pit causes death of 8 children
by Wally Thompson, Staff Writer

"In what Silent Hill law enforcement officials are calling an unprecedented tragedy, 8 children were killed last night when the tour train in which they were riding derailed in the Devil's Pit mines.

Witnesses claimed by JP Sater, the train's operator, was visibly intoxicated at the time of the accident, and that negligence on his part may have led to the derailment.

"The train guy was drunk," said Phillip Menton, a tourist from Chicago. "He was belligerent to everyone, even the kids. There was no way he should have been operating anything"

"We've just begun investigating this terrible accident and it's far too soon to speculate on anything." Detective Edward Rogers told reporter[*] this morning. "Rest assured, we will utilize all available police resources and personnel to uncover the cause."

The Silent Hill Tourism Authority has shut down all Devil's Pit operations indefinitely, and has released the following statement: "We are saddened by the horrific accident involving the tourist train at our facilities, and we pledge to fully cooperate with law enforcement officials in all aspects of their investigation."

* [sic] The s in "reporters" was behind where the file was "torn."


Wilkes' Poem[*] (Found on Wilkes' body, strapped to a fuse box, outside train station)

Beneath the slate burns wicked ash,
And the children cry for blood.

Outside, the fir trees blow
In a wind that knows not what happened here.

Or that Toluca's subterranean claws
Seed blood. Always blood.

- Wilkes

* I'm not sure if this text is supposed to be a clue to the train power puzzle; I guessed the answer by chance. If this is indeed a clue, the text may change with difficulty - I'm not sure. I played on Hard.

Dear Shithead

I'm on to you, you junkie asshole. Next time something goes missing from my apartment, you can expect the cops to come knocking on your door. and if it's not them, it'll be me, and my knock is 12 gauges if you catch my drift. So if you don't want an ass full of buckshot, I suggest you stay the fuck away from my apartment. Last warning.

Prison Riot Article[*] (Pearl Creek; Sidewalk of Brite St., east side)

Today in the News

Riot at Ryall State Prison results in four fatalities

A full-scale riot at Ryall State Prison was finally brought under control late last night after prison guards stormed the facility utilizing large quantities of tear gas, riot batons, and shotguns. As of this writing, four fatalities have been reported, all prisoners, whose names are being withheld.

"After a tense stand-off with a rather brutal physical confrontation, we were able to reestablish full control of the prison," said Warden Glen Milton. "Rest assured, we will get to the bottom of this and find out just what and, most importantly, who was the cause of this unfortunate disruption to normal prison operations."

A number of guards were reported injured in the incident as well, one seriously. Their names are also being withheld pending the investigation.

[Reveal] Spoiler:
The date of this article is Tuesday 20 and the rest is torn off; The real date is Tuesday 20, June, 2006. Murphy was to be released on Parole only six days later, but was transferred to Wayside Max instead after the events of this riot, transfer effective late August.

Dear Mr. Rice[*] (Pearl Creek; Inside Art Gallery, down Alley on [...Forgot] St.)

October 3rd

Dear Mr. Rice,

The DeLalla painting in your collection needs to be in a public gallery, not the private home of an eccentric recluse who selfishly hoards such treasures for his sole amusement. I have tried repeatedly to get you to accept my generous offer to purchase the painting, but once again you rebuff me, leaving me no choice but to take drastic measures.

It would be extremely unfortunate if certain details regarding your son's suicide were made public. Give me the painting, and I'll assure you that these allegations will never see the light of day. Refuse me, and face the consequences.

Dear Mr. Rice[*] (Pearl Creek; Inside Art Gallery, down Alley on [...Forgot] St.)

September 14th

Dear Mr. Barker,

Thank you for returning my inquiry regarding the Liliana Shelley painting. It's wonderful to find another like-minded collector, especially one that's so familiar with the early work of this local artist. I was, however, extremely disappointed to hear that you have chosen to reject my offer to acquire this piece for my gallery. You have to understand that we are assembling what The Art Review has called "the most important and extensive collection" of Shelley's early oils ever displayed, and refusing to sell or lend the painting to the gallery is not only a disservice to Silent Hill, but an insult to the greater art community. Your refusal to support this celebration of Shelley's work will only lead to misfortune. I beg you to carefully reconsider my offer.

How large is the map? 3x3 grid? Maybe I don't need the entire map to find the treasure...

Who has the missing paintings? (Cross-check with Art collector Quarterly. Who's buying New England 19th century oils?)

Mr. Rice (won't return calls)
Ms. Brite [name crossed out]
Dr. S[XXXXX] [name crossed out]
Mr. Barker (refuses to sell)

What do the symbols mean???
Native American. Maybe Algonquian? Call Pat at SH Historical Soc., maybe he knows?

Status Update - Internal Investigation[*](Centennial Building; On cop car passenger seat)


From: Captain Bryan Handley
To: Warden Glen Milton
Subject: Status Update - Internal Investigation

Per our recent conversation, my department has initiated an aggressive internal investigation into the prison guard staff. In order to keep you appraised of signification developments, please note that we are paying particular attention to the activities, past and present, of Corrections Officer George Sewell. we have received an eyewitness testimony from Corrections Officer Frank Coleridge that suggests C.O. Sewell has been engaged in a number of illegal activities in the course of his duties.

Other than C.O. Coleridge's testimony, however, our evidence against Sewell's alleged violations remains circumstantial at this point and our investigation continues. I will keep you promptly appraised of any new findings.

To: Captain Bryan Handley
Subject: Prisoner Patrick Napier

Concerning the recent unsolved murder of the subject-named prisoner in our facilities, a full and complete review of all isolation and segregation procedures will be undertaken by you and your staff, with findings turned into my office no later than close of business 21st November. Included in your report will be full investigation results regarding Napier's murder, including those responsible for overseeing the victim's activities during the time of the incident - specifically how another prisoner was allowed to access the segregation area.

Probationary Hearing Prelim Memo[*] (Centennial Building; Drawer of room 200)

Ryall State Prison

From: Dr. Wayne Sara
To: Warden Glen Milton
Subject: Psychological Evaluation - Probationary Hearing Prelim

[XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX] is a male, 43 years old. He is serving a [XXXXX]-year sentence for multiple felony accounts, including third-degree murder and sexual assault of a child below the age of 14. He appears to be in satisfactory physical health. The prisoner is currently being considered for probation. After multiple sessions with the prisoner, I have concluded he does not suffer from any psychotic or physical disorders. Rather, he has shown continually to have an inordinate interest in young children and manifests significant predatory traits. As a result, I feel he poses an imminent danger to the community should he be released from custody, and is therefore a poor candidate for probation.

[Reveal] Spoiler:
Despite the blocked out name being a copypasta of the smudge on a Murphy Pendleton memo, this one is for Patrick Napier - evidenced by the age of 43 - Napier was 42 when he was caught. His sentence is likely "fourty." "fifty," or "sixty."
