Jailbroken Clockworks Drown Man

September 21, 1906 ยท

Life in the East End’s “Clockwork Underworld” took a deadly turn over the weekend, when two jailbroken Clockwork Servants jumped into the River Thames and dragged a man to his death.

The man simply known as Zach, was a 22 year old employee at The Den, the notorious establishment owned by Christopher Hargreaves and Ella Mayhem. Several eye witnesses claim to have tried to prevent the incident, but were overpowered by the Clocks.

The culprits, Mei Mei, and Ming Cho (picture), who were Clockwork Servants at the venue, and had been inspected and certified as “safe” by officers from Clockwork Watch.

One eye witness claims that a group calling themselves ‘scientists’ attempted a procedure several times, and were eventually successful in jailbreaking the devices.

The person went on to say that both claimed they had not been treated well by Zach, and were intent on revenge. They became agitated when Zach revealed that both are locked up in crates when not in use.

Zach was then dragged, kicking and screaming, to his death. His body has still not been recovered.

A spokesperson for the Department for the Advancement of Sciences, said this highlights the dangers of tampering with Clockwork programming, and that Mei Mei and Ming Cho, had must have been reprogrammed poorly. “Each probably retained an element of awareness, but with limited functionality, and Zach’s treatment probably did not help matters”.

Records show that Mei Mei and Ming Cho, had been employed as personal protectors to a rich family, and were trained in deadly combat techniques. No one could tell us if they were still functional or if jumping into the river would eventually kill them.

With so many jailbroken Clocks on the streets, it was only a matter of time till an incident like this happened.

Clockwork Watch are warning the public not to apprehend or approach Mei Mei or Ming Cho, and to contact them through the electronic telegram. They are said to be extremely dangerous and in a confused state.
