This reporter has begun conducting her own investigation into the aforementioned fire and it appears there may have been something other than creatures, Muggle or magical involved in the blaze. Evidence found at the scene makes it clear someone was in the apartment other than the owner and any pet or pets he may own.
Anyone who may have seen anything that night is welcome to contact the paper, anonymously should they wish, and relay any information they may have. Currently, evidence found at the scene are undergoing testing for any clues to their owner they may reveal. One item in particular has been traced to the retail establishment it was purchased at and this reporter will be visiting there to see if sales records may reveal the owner.
It is believed that this fire was an attempt to stop Mr Reid from revealing information about improper actions taking place in the Ministry.
