This account was gathered last evening at the Horse’s Head Tavern in Jhelom. I was enjoying a fine pint of ale when the guards dropped this poor fellow off with me. Is this a drunken man’s day dream or a real live nightmare? More news as it develops. Citizens are asked to keep their eyes open for Cirrus Ferban as he is unaccounted for and may have more details of what happened.

"T'were judda udder nigh me and ol’ Cirrus wer’ just minden our own business down at da Cemetary of Jhelom. We didna mean no harm, I mean they be dead they don’t need nuffin. Anyways.. we found this nice un all fresh and done up real nice. We was sure there'd be riches inside. Well when we popped dat there casket open a heed fell out! T'was most disgusting I tell ye, Poor ol’ Cirrus lost his supper all over someone’s burial.

Anyway we were getting the finery off this bloke when the body started moving! Now usually I’sa quite calm man cause - I mean it's part of the business - but I do hate rats! And I swear all I could think of was a big plump rat feeding on that man's corpse. Golly if it'ud only been dat! Well da body done got up and walked off by itself and the head, oh dear those horrid eyes! Glaring up at me! It hissed and snarled at me, then it started to scream! I ran as fer as I could, but the thing rolled and tumbled after me - and all the while that wretched body slammed from tree to tree mindlessly. I thought I was done for! Then Ol’ Cirrus beat the thing upside the head and told me to run, and then he disappeared in a shimmerin gate ta Trammal - I s'pose it's safer there. But I took off as fast as me ol' bones could take me. When I got ta town the Guards thought something was wrong with me and brought me here. Honest lady I wasn’t doing nuffin wrong - there's a thing in the forest!"
