Super Detective: Chapter 6 – Sharp Minds


Miles Miller travelled the Route 99. By foot. 


There is an old investigator in town. An urban legend known as ‘Urban L’ made its round as the first investigator in New Berlin. He was called this way because he only commanded detective through a computer in reminiscence to L from the Japanese manga ‘Death Note’. There was once a picture on the web dubbed ‘Kira’ which showed a man in a blue overall kneeling above a corpse. It turned out it was only a fake.

His reputation exceeded. And for every one who loves you; one begins to hate you. Many people like the idea of an unknown and highly intelligent individual spreading justice. Yet, many were annoyed by his tendency to be overly commanding and being overly dramtic. He was no saint. His – indeed – way of doing things made him an ambigous and even more popular person. 

His first case was called the ‘Rocky Port Incident’. Rocky Port is the name of the harbor in New Berlin. The first victim was an illegal immigrant being shipped within a container. It turned out he was the son of a rich family who tried to escape its shackles. Only due to Urban L its investigations, the details came out. Although many branded him an idiot for being so careless with official investigatory information.

Many believe him to be an old person since he stopped investigating after a few years. He only left a letter he sent to a newspaper in town. He excused his actions and kind of acting and tried to be a good person. Even though many thought it was only a bit publicity. (No one actually believed him to be a good person.) His last case was a dead gardener and he had to bribe an officer for more information. But that was kept secret.

His fate is unknown. Many believe him to be dead. Other believed he left the country. Many conspiracy theories spread like wildfire. Him being a physically handicapped person or a mentally ill person. No one has ever heard for him ever again. His life was a mystrery. And so, was his departure.
