There has been a rumor going around about a murderer in Charlottetown. He is known as the Masked Murderer, but his real name is Tyler MacFitzy. Tyler is an ordinary man with a job and a wife, but what people do not know is that as a little boy his father beat him, that is why he kills people. The Masked Murderer breaks into peoples' houses at night and stabs them to death while they are sleeping.
One night Tyler MacFitzy broke into Mr. Jackson's house and killed him.
A couple of kids heard a rumor that Mr. Jackson was never picked up to get buried, so those kids dared the new kid, Josh Doyle, to go into Mr. Jackson's house and to make sure he was dead.
Well, Josh never came back from the house. The rest of the kids went home because it was getting really late and they thought that maybe Josh slipped out the back door and went home too.
In the morning, they all met in front of Mr. Jackson's house. There in front of the house were policemen and ambulances surrounding the house. Off to the right was the family of Josh Doyle,the boy who went into the house.
One of the kids asked a policeman what happened and the policeman answered, "A boy went into the house with a knife, but his shirt got caught by the knife. He was scared to death and died."
Another person said, " We found him lying on the floor dead with the knife through the sleeve of his shirt. We were just getting Mr.Jackson's body ready for burial, but then we saw him. We think that the reason the young boy died was because he thought Mr. Jackson was still alive and grabbed him."
