Investigative Report: Shelby O'Rourke
I met a VTU student named Shelby O'Rourke who was making preparations for her thesis study. She believes she can prove the existance of local area cryptids: mothman, Grafton, Snally, etc. She said she was making plans for her "base" somewhere in northeastern Appalachia in the swamp area. O'Rourke's certainty in her ability to find proof may mean she's worth keeping an eye on. My initial background check didn't reveal much besides being an exemplary, if not eccentric, student at VTU.
