Right before Summer ends a serial killer stalks his next unexpected visitor. He surveys his territory from a high advantage, out in the open, acutely aware of what is going on.
It is usually the same type he goes for, those with a tiny stature, small eyes, and a demure nature. This serial killer goes by the name of Tyto.
He is a fair-weather killer, not a fan of coming out in the rain. Tyto uses the still time of the day: dusk, to start his hunt, when this time of year the air is cooler and the moon brighter.
He is meticulous in his presentation, spending time grooming.
Although he is photogenic, he's got fleas and lice, and whilst he rests during the day, flies buzz around because of his outdoor life.
The visitor never sees Tyto coming, too busy with their own business.
There's Tyto hiding in plain sight, silently he swoops and entraps his victim, the death is usually quick as Tyto rips his kill apart, the most satisfying part.
He's not a loner, when it comes to a female mate, he will screech for her attention and he will get it. Anybody trying to intrude will be warned to stay away with a hiss.
Quite often he is photographed, even snap shots of his killings. That's not what gets him found out. He leaves clues on purpose, for others to find, children like the 'horror' of them.
Tyto is revealed by the pellets, a healthy one will have 5 or 6 sculls and other remains. After all he is a natural born Killer
