The Vampire of York -by James Christie (fiction)

At 1.53 on the morning of Monday 9th July 1984, the south transept of York Minster was struck by a thunderbolt of lightening and burst into flames.  One year earlier or July 3rd 1983 BBC Radio York had begun broadcasting on 666 kilohertz.  In the intervening 12 months there were no fewer than seven murders in the city, which to this day remain unsolved, and there was an unprecedented rise in the number of missing persons cases.  ON 25TH May 1984 a body was exhumed from the graveyard of a suburban parish church: when the coffin lid was removed, the corpse was noticeable by its absence. These are facts.
