Sock Killer Strikes, Police Question Suspect

A sock killer may be on the loose in the field notes neighborhood.

Yesterday evening, residents identified an olive green sock had gone missing. It still had not returned this morning, but residents had a culprit in mind. Over the last three months, they have reported several missing socks and the near constant presence of a drooling suspect seen loitering around the place dirty socks are kept prior to laundering. They describe the suspect as female, about 125 pounds, large-build, with long black hair.

Although socks have gone missing before, they have never stayed missing longer than a few hours, residents say.

The remaining olive green sock was examined for evidence. Forensic specialists expected to find hair and saliva samples on the sock, however it had been freshly laundered.

Police questioned the only individual who matched the residents' description. She has been identified as Katy the Newfoundland. Although she has has no criminal record, neighbors say she is well known for being a thug and getting into fights.

An eye witness was also brought in for questioning. Max the Spaniel reported seeing Katy taking socks on multiple occasions but admitting to be asleep for the duration of the time the crime was estimated to have occurred. He added that Katy the Newfoundland has tried to kill him in the past and that she is an unsavory character who belongs behind bars.

Police are keeping Katy under surveillance until they have enough evidence to build a case.

If anyone finds an olive-green-with-orange-trim sock in her stash, it's mine!!

Police say they've found several athletic-style socks dead in various corners of the Field Notes Residence, slain execution-style.

"The caliber of tooth mark is the same in each case," Detective Lt. Winston J. Canequine said Monday evening.

"But we're just not sure," he added. The investigation continued at press time.

I think my cat may be an accomplice! Could you snoop around for an orange tabby possibly armed and dangerous? Armed because he is believed to be carrying a white Nike sock and dangerous because it is an unwashed sock off the foot of a 19-year old male. The cat is known to hang with dogs and the socks are known to hang on their own.
