Pulled From Canal

Posted June 17th. 2014
The bloated and decaying body of local teacher Neville Rigger, was hauled out of a Manchester canal late this afternoon. Following 3 days of intensive searches by police with cadaver dogs, door to door searches, helicopters and dredging the canal.
Rigger is suspected to have been the sole attacker in the deaths of at least 4 local people in Manchester these last few days. His trail of viscous carnage started after he too was infected by a reanimate attack on June 7th. Indications are that Rigger (pictured in the photo below), was treated in hospital for what was believed to be minor injuries caused by the accident and released later that night.
It is not clear how his zombified and reanimated remains
came to be in the canal. But police divers do confirm that it was found whilst dredging the murky waters in the search for him. A police spokesperson said "The body was very bloated and in an advanced state of decay. It should have risen to the surface but was deeply submerged, caught in discarded junk at the bottom of the canal. It was still motivated to attack divers at the scene and so we had to call in a team of specialized navy divers to subdue and neutralize Mr. Rigger."
The undead body of Neville Rigger had evaded capture for several days, leaving police scratching their heads and the public angry that he was still loose. This does at least explain in part how he managed to remain elusive for so long. It is speculated that after his last attack he shambled down Bath Road and probably stumbled into the canal. The large amount of debris and junk below the murky water trapping him in an animated but immovable state.
Police say that the 3 mile salford quarantine zone will stay in effect for the next several days. "Ensuring continued monitoring in the eventuality of further outbreaks." said a spokesperson today
Special Navy divers had the unenviable task of neautralizing the zombified body
Tow days ago, Riggers undead figure was captured on local CCTV cameras around town.
