After seeing the article Bella found, I decided to do some snooping, and I found this in at the back of the Prophet from Tuesday:
Muggle Masacre: Fifteen Dead at the Hands of an Unknown Killer
-Joel Dobbins, Investigative Reporter
The Ministry of Magic has gained intelligence that the mass murder of a group of fifteen muggle campers in the forrest of Nottinghamshire, may be a direct link to the string muggle born deaths plaguing the magical world. At this time, the are no certain leads as to whom is performing the attacks, but ministry workers have ruled out the involvement of any non-magical persons. The cause for this, is the appearance of the Dark Mark, present at the scene of all prior attacks.
This time was certainly no different. The Mark was seen hovering over the forrest, just above the spot where the muggle bodies were found. Ministry workers are baffled, no one is certain how one wizard or witch can be responsible for so many deaths. Unless, of course, there is more than one. This possibility is not being ruled out, as the search and investigation continues.
More information will be provided as the story breaks and unfolds, but as for now, it remains a mystery.|
