The Case Of The Memorial Day Zombie Ghost

Zombie GhostWe all had off on Memorial Day.  Of course theoretically we’re never off duty since supernatural darkness never sleeps! Most of us went our separate ways but saw each other at the various festivities throughout the day including the Memorial Day Parade in the morning.  I noticed an odd grey skinned man wearing a World War II soldiers uniform complete with helmet.  He walking among the parade floats with a sinister look on his face.  Our Telekinetic Psychic Julia found us, and said she felt chills up her spine when the man looked directly at her.  His eyes were soulless coals of death! The fair Witch Rebecca also said something wasn’t right about him.  Well besides the fresh zombie looking skin.  We tried to find him but he disappeared in the crowd.

Later in the afternoon we attended a solemn service at the cemetery to honor the men, and women of the armed forces who had given their lives to defend our freedoms.  A special ceremony was held in front of the Mulroney Family Crypt.  The Mulroney’s were a moderately wealthy family who made their fortune in mining back in the late 1800’s but were now only worth a few million.  The Patriarch Wallace Mulroney, who is 76 years old, was recently informed that his Father’s remains were miraculously found in Germany.  Shockingly they were rather well preserved in a secret Nazi underground laboratory only discovered mere months ago.  There was a media cover up due to the secrecy of the experiments that were paranormal in nature.  Experiments dabbling in immortality.  Records indicate that the loyal Nazi scientists wanted to grant Adolph Hitler eternal rule over Germany, and the world.  They had a diabolical plan to not only make him immortal but also grant him the full range of psychokinetic powers all humans have in latent form within their junk DNA (Develop PSI Powers). That would have made him a God!  Thankfully the war came to an end before their plans came to frightening fruition.

His Father, Lt. Gerald Mulroney, lied in a closed casket in front of the family crypt as a brief funeral service took place with members of the Armed Forces handing the family an American flag.  The photo on display of Gerald looked familiar but I couldn’t place where I had seen him before. The casket was then carried inside followed by family members as the doors closed.  The casket was to be opened for viewing only by them.  Those of us there started to walk away when we heard screams coming from the crypt.  We ran inside to find angry, and crying family distressed over the casket being empty.  We introduced ourselves as the Mystic Investigation Team, and examined the casket.  There were claw marks on the inside, and the casket locks were bent.  Something not seen earlier due to flag draped over it.  We didn’t quite know how to tell them that whoever was in the coffin forced their way out.  So we said nothing.

We regrouped outside, and Julia said she had a vision when she touched the inside of the Spring Graveyardcasket.  She was pretty sure Gerald was the grey guy in the army combat uniform we saw at the parade.  I immediately realized it was the same guy in the picture once I looked past the living dead wrinkled skin.  We had some kind of walking dead creature on our hands, and I immediately contacted the other team members.  We were about to fan out when we heard panicked yelling in the distance at the Memorial Day Picnic which had just begun at the park down the trail.  We ran among the gravestones to the woodland trail.  Rebecca, a Demi-Mermaid Witch, reached the clearing to the park first since she can run the fastest.  Well not as fast as our vampire Drake but he couldn’t come out in the holy sunlight. What Rebecca saw was mass chaos as the grey skinned soldier chased people about while making crazy guttural noises. As he targeted everyone he trashed picnic tables, benches, and everything else along the way!

Once we all arrived at the park we could hear the zombie soldiers gravely voice scream,”You ungrateful brats!  I gave my life for you, and you’ve flushed America in the toilet with your lazy complacency!”  Rebecca raced to him, and stopped Gerald from picking up a woman, and tossing her several feet as he did with others who were lying on the grass in pain.  Rebecca punched him in his ashen face but he just stood there laughing manically.  He was about to grab her neck when we all tackled him to the ground.  He was fiercely strong as he growled like a mad man smelling like a rotted corpse.  At that moment my best guess was that he might be a sapient zombie.  Something usually only seen when a ghost gains the power to re-entered their corpse, and self-resurrect.  However his strength was off the zombie charts when he hoisted all of us off him, and sent us flying in all directions.  He leaped to his feet snarling, waving his hands around wildly, and running about in a serpentine pattern.

People were running to the parking lot attempting to leave but Gerald began smashing car engines, and windows along with ripping doors off their hinges.  As we approached he lifted a minivan loaded with a family over his head, and launched it toward a large oak tree.  The kids in the back were screeching in terror! If only Drake was here he could have caught it like a giant football.  Fortunately Rebecca, and Julia worked together to save them.  Rebecca mustered up all her Demi-Mermaid strength while Julia used her telekinesis to lighten the load on her. Gerald was enraged that we were interfering in his revenge filled rampage as he blamed everyone for what he saw as the sorry state of our nation.  He began picking up some boulders nearby, and launching them at us.  We dodged them as Rob Edmunds, our Ghost Buster, fired off his extremely expensive customized quantum particle disruption gun normally used to destroy ghosts foot hold in our reality.  It hit Gerald who was dazed for a bit but then sped to Rob, and crushed the gun to smithereens.  Gerald slapped him across the face knocking him out cold as I used some Kung Fu moves on him.  I received a painful punch to the gut before everyone piled on top of him again.

A woman nearby was hysterically crying,”What the hell is going on here!” amid Gerald’s destruction.  She was having some kind of nervous break down as people lie bloodied, and injured.  A handful of people managed to speed away in their cars for dear life!  We fought to keep Gerald grounded as he roared,”I endured years of torturous experiments, and I come back to find this once great nation thrust in the dark shadows of damnation!”  I replied,”Yes Gerald but for the love of God would you just get a grip, and maybe we can discuss this!”  After that he just growled, and tried to bite me! One moment he was coherent, and intelligent while the next he was a wild supernatural animal!  Julia attempted to reach him psychically but his mind was a chaotic mess.  Rebecca couldn’t even get a moment to do a magic spell amid fighting this crazy corpse.

Suddenly a sewer grate flew away into the parking lot as Drake popped his head out.  His hair was smoking even with the tree’s filtering out the sunlight which is destructive to vampires.  We struggled to drag the kicking, and screaming sapient super zombie to the sewer hole.  Drake got hold of his uniform with one hand, and dragged him down into the dark stinky depths.  The entire parking lock shook as an epic fist fight took place below us. Howls, and roars bellowed forth from the sewer.  A minute later there was silence.  We looked down, and Drake said,”He bit into me, and drank my blood.  A second later he was dust!”  Drake was careful not to drink Gerald’s blood just in case his origin was zombie in nature since zombie blood, or dead human blood, is poison to vampires.  Clearly vampire blood had a destructive effect on the pile of ashes strewn among a militarily uniform that was now the remains of Gerald.

Our friend Sheriff Blake Maverick got control of the crime scene.  He gave the usual story to the local media.  Mad man hopped up on PCP! LOL! Amazingly people usually believe it. We felt bad for the Mulroney Family, who thankfully didn’t realize their
relative was behind this Memorial Day mess.  So we had the Sheriff manufacture a story about a casket mix up at the airport.  We delivered a new coffin with a magical Glamour inside that looked like Gerald’s body.  Once place inside Gerald’s personal burial vault the Glamour would vanish.  We did place some of the ashes in the casket out of respect but kept the rest to study.  Our findings along with what our German counterparts know of the Nazi lab indicated that the scientists were tapping into the zombie virus to weed out the immortality element minus the rotting corpse of course.  Gerald was some kind of reanimated zombie corpse who maintained his faculties during some moments while turning into a rage filled monster at other times. Evidence also indicated that Gerald died in such a horrific manner that he became a ghost who re-entered his dead body. Luckily he only bit Drake, and tossed everyone else around not even thinking of biting them.  He clearly didn’t have the zombies appetite for human flesh, or at least hadn’t developed it yet.  Gerald was locked away in a dormant state within some kind of stasis chamber since the 1940’s. We’re not sure of the exact reason why he only woke up on Memorial Day.  RIP Lieutenant Gerald Mulroney!
