The quest begins upon reading the note on Calvin van Lowe's bulletin board in his room at Van Lowe Taxidermy or pinned to the bottom of the bulletin board in Grafton Station. Head to the picnic site south of Wavy Willard's Water Park and investigate the scene, look for an empty box of rat poison, two bicycles belonging to "Chelsea Wesley of Clarksburg" and Mary Tinley and a holotape. After examining everything, head to the Wesley house in Clarksburg, dealing with any robots or feral ghouls encountered, as the house is on the east side of the ruins, immediately west of the Clarksburg Shooting Club. Find Chelsea's diary page along with a horseshoe magnet and dice before being directed to the Tinley family trailer on the west side of town. Deal with Harvey Tinley, who has become a feral ghoul and is still present there, and find Mary's diary page in a backpack inside, which completes the quest and solves another of the unsolved mysteries that Calvin believed would lead to the Sheepsquatch.

? Investigate the Picnic site for cluesBefore the war, two girls went missing from Clarksburg. I'm picking up the investigation decades later to see if I can determine what happened to them.
? Look for clues at the Wesley's HouseI found an old picnic site with two dead girls, their bikes and some board games. One of the bikes had an address to the Wesley home in Clarksburg. Investigating the Wesley home, I discovered that Chelsea Wesley had been cheating at the game while insulting her friend Mary.
? Investigate Mary Tinley's homeMy investigation into the two dead girls at the picnic site has revealed a tragic tale. Chelsea came from money, but Mary's family were poor. Despite coming from different worlds, they became friends. Chelsea would regularly cheat at all their games, refusing to believe that a girl like Mary could be allowed to win. Mary confronted her and Chelsea must have revealed her true, elitist feelings. Mary snapped and drowned Chelsea and then took her own life.
