A Change of Scenery

What went down at the lab heist

What. A. Night.

This is what happened.

We arrived at the Prometha offices in Cambridge without a hitch. Matt, Fluffy and I managed to get into the building while the others distracted the security guards.

Meanwhile everyone helping out online, guided by the lovely Bicks and her new found techy skills, found their way into the Blackmoor Security website and were able to watch what we were doing via the Prometha CCTV cameras. (Login with username: 80003347 and password: 43462399 - the site code is cam027q)

So far, so not that scary and actually quite OK.

We managed to get into Woodburn’s office and find a note containing what turned out to be his Prometha website password in code. More on that later.

We EVEN got into the lab and - ta daaaah - found a sample of MAL!!

But then it all went a leetle pear shaped, to say the least.

We’re talking me, Matt n Fluffy being locked inside a lab that’s quickly filling with CO2 from a knocked-over canister. While an alarm goes off. And security come running. And the police are called.

Needless to say it was a truly horrible 10 minutes (actually I dunno how long we were in there. It felt like hours but I know it wasn’t). Wondering whether I was going to suffocate before the police arrived to arrest me, while a murderer got away with his crimes, is not a sequence of emotions I’m keen on repeating.

God knows how it would have turned out if it hadn’t been for the guys outside stalling security, and you lot online causing the system to crash and so unlocking the lab doors.

To cut a long story short(ish), we ran out of the lab straight into the not-very-welcoming arms of the police. I could not BELIEVE we were going to be arrested while Woodburn looked on.

Meanwhile, Bicks and everyone online were manically trying to work out Woodburn’s password to Prometha. They managed it, got into his account, found concrete evidence that we were right about him. He WAS behind Markus’ death. If you want to check it out it’s username: dwoodburn password: VNbTaDb.

Bicks called the Cambridge police, and Woodburn was arrested.

We were questioned by the police for a good few hours, but were let off. Now I’m at home and feeling very emotional and desperate for some sleep.

I can hardly believe we’ve come this far. I’m more grateful than I can say. But I’ll give it my best shot as soon as I’ve had some sleep…

The transcript is still up if you want a look.

Help Me Catch the Murderer

Help me catch my uncle’s murderer. JOIN US HERE NOW!!

My uncle, geneticist Markus Schoenberg, was killed almost 2 months ago. We have strong reason to believe that Duncan Woodburn, the boss of Prometha (a bio tech company), had him killed over a unique DNA line, MAL, that will make the company ££££.

It’s down to us - and you - to make that happen. We’re going to try to get into the Prometha labs to retrieve the sample of DNA that will prove Markus was murdered. If you think you can help - and so many of you have already - please, please JOIN US NOW. We’re so close to bringing my uncle’s murderer to justice: you could help make that happen.

Tomorrow. Erk!

Writing this ahead of the big lab heist tomorrow.

I’ve set up a special page where you can *kind of* chat and help us finish this thing. It’ll kick off around 5pm (UK time!) tomorrow, Sunday 22nd March. When it’s working, Bicks has to approve all comments so it’s not instant - don’t panic. You’ll need the latest version of Flash.

We are going to try to get into the Prometha labs to retrieve the sample of DNA that will prove Markus was murdered.

Bicks has volunteered to help out online and Matt, Fluffy, myself and some helpers are going to break in.

Matt’s coming up with a plan with your help, but we’re going to need back up on the day. If you think you can help - and so many of you have already - please, please come back here around 5pm this Sunday, 22nd March.

Am I insane?

Maybe this isn’t such a great idea.

Planning

I know I said all this yesterday, but this is it: the real thing. Scary.

We are going to try to get into the Prometha labs to retrieve the sample of DNA that will prove Markus was murdered.

Bicks has volunteered to help out online and Matt, Fluffy, myself and some helpers are going to break in.

Matt’s coming up with a plan with your help, but we’re going to need back up on the day. If you think you can help - and so many of you have already - please, please come back here around 5pm this Sunday, 22nd March.

The Plan

As some of you know, we’ve been trying to uncover the truth about my uncle Professor Markus Schoenberg.

He was killed almost 2 months ago and we have very strong reason to believe that Duncan Woodburn, the CEO of Prometha (a bio tech company), had him killed over a unique DNA line, MAL, that will make the company very rich.

We’ve taken matters into our own hands after trying everything to bring this man to justice. We are going to try to get into the Prometha labs to retrieve the sample of DNA that will prove Markus was murdered.

Bicks has volunteered to help out online and Matt, Fluffy, myself and some are going to break in.

Matt’s coming up with a plan but we’re going to need back up on the day. If you think you can help - and so many of you have already - please, please come back here around 5pm this Sunday, 22nd March.

For Bicks

Hiya Bicks. Bless you for worrying about me n I know I’d be the same if the roles were reversed. But… I’ll be fine. Really. This is something I have to do. Seriously: I *need* to do it. I love that you’re thinking of me n I’m grateful, but this IS going to happen. I know you understand.

Love you x

So close…

Alison’s decided to help us, and it’s totally down to you.

‘Thank you’ doesn’t even come close. I can’t begin to explain how touched, grateful - and awed - I’ve been at all the work that you, people who six weeks ago didn’t know me from Adam, have put into helping me find out what happened to my uncle. I will never, ever forget it.

Get active for Alison

We need proof that the MAL cell line was stolen from the Murutaibo. Anyone who’s watched as much daytime telly as I have knows that the only way to 100% prove a connection between two people (or in this case the Murutaibo and Prometha) is with a DNA test.

The only person who can help is Alison at DEPAA. She *could* get us some Murutaibo DNA, but will she? It’s gonna take a LOT of persuading. She needs to know we’re serious before she’ll even *think* about helping.  She wants to see us campaigning, basically, for indigenous people’s rights. We need to become activists, people.

That means raising awareness of the plight of native peoples (yeah baby, I know the lingo) via facebook, bebo, your blogs, making a poster - whatever, wherever. Just put the evidence online and send me the link/s. Even better, email them to DEPAA and tell them we need their help. Please.

Check out the DEPAA pages: they’ve got loads of facts and figures you can tell people, and pictures and stuff you can use.

You know what to do…Get Involved - and fast. We don’t have much time.
