Case 78

The Janabi Family

Sergeant Yribe was notably stern, straight-faced, and focused when approaching the building. He commanded his squad quickly and efficiently as they swept through the farmhouse performing a building clearance. They rushed down the corridor of the house, shouting and kicking down doors with their weapons raised.

With the building secured the shocking reality of what happened inside became clear.
