We have started our case, found one piece of evidence, and made connections with four suspects: Maggie Black, Joan Crawford, Jim Groom, and Daphne (Groom’s dog). With the amount of people and pieces of evidence that will likely be associated with the alleged victim, NoirCat, eventually, we decided to organize the case on a suspect board. Our agency will continue to update this board with any new evidence that we find and any personal connections that we make. These updates will be found in this section of the Black Widow Agency Website.

NoirCat’s Tracker is no longer connecting with Black’s tracking device. Suspicious of deactivation of the tracking chip in NoirCat placed by Joan Crawford, VMD.

Our suspicions of deactivation of the microchip in NoirCat have been confirmed. We discovered a box that was cracked open to reveal a magnetic strip inside. It was clearly used to disable Crawford’s microchip. This piece of evidence was found at Groom’s location.

Daphne’s interview revealed that she did eat a portion of the ransom note, she claims to be NoirCat’s best friend, and NoirCat holds hatred for Maggie’s ds106 community.
Upon leaving Groom’s location, we discovered NoirCat’s tag on the corner of College Avenue and William Street. In the yard of an abandoned building, the matching pink collar caught Sylvia’s eye.
It is clear from the DNA found in the building that NoirCat spent an undefined amount of time there. After Edie received an anonymous tip, the agency members visited the “Cat’s Closet” store on Caroline Street. The tip turned out to be accurate, as we captured an image of NoirCat in the kitty door. As of this point, it is unclear whether she was alone or not.

After following the trail of NoirCat from the “Cat’s Closet”, we discovered a series of soft paws that clearly belonged to her with the phrase, “Don’t Find Me”, spelled out in the ten pieces. This piece of evidence led us to an empty house in a neighborhood of downtown Fredericksburg, where we discovered NoirCat sitting by a window. Julia James conducted an interview with her in which we found out that NoirCat faked her own disappearance because she felt objectified by the DS106 community that Maggie is a part of. She refuses to return.
This discovery has eliminated all other suspects included on the board, and it leaves only one culprit: NoirCat, herself. She is the victim and the catnapper in this case. By designing and organizing this suspect board, we were able to assess all options and finally get to the bottom of this case.
