Diana Richard






Maire Blair was born at Khartoum in the south of Sudan on March 16, 1785. Her parents were sold to an American Missionary Gavin Jerne in the Fall of 1796. Maire was then sold to a Local Elite Edison Wyatt.  She was tall dark and beautiful her skin was Silk and Reindeer Like Cinnamon, her eyes were sharp like silver in lighting.  with curly tangled hair, Maira studied to the style of braiding and Weaving at the Age eighteen What made her eccentric was the purity within her, enslaved to her Master she spent her days dedicated to Harvesting Sugarcane and Working in the Diary. 


Later Spring Maire was Strangled by a freeman she was only twenty-eight her body was exposed in the White Nile, she was drowned and dreaded, her skin was patched and sliced. Her eyes were dissected, and her jaws were swollen. There was so much little information on her death and the Case was dismissed, classified as Ritual Incarceration and it was ruled out by the sheriff.


My name is Diana Barns I am a graduate student at the University of Minnesota What makes Maire’s revered and rare is her journey through time. I first encounter Maire Blair, fall of the University of Minnesota Twin cities she was eccentric with youth her eyes, and a mutual lure was formed on both ends. I’d love to say she was cautious and discreet well reserved and peculiar. We were both graduate students studying physics and anatomy. I was intrigued by the scars in Maire Expression, but I was so fresh to ask my curiosity about them. She bragged about her success and Wishes to visit the great Athens to further her education.


but the little I would have known is the mystery she possessed. The day that that Altered the Destiny of Minneapolis was September 29th I call it the devils day and it was, 8:00 am it was Homecoming, the parades were chimed with glitter the cheerleaders were sassed with harmony the crowd was marching in bands. Maire had gone disappeared for three weeks I kept blowing her phone with hopes she would answer, I just assumed that she needed her space because were both foreigners in this country. But I had no idea she was crafting a dudgeon of deception.


It was approximately 1:00 pm. I sighted the silence in the Hallways of the university center. It was as if I was hiking alone in a ghost town and I felt my skin creep with gust and fear. as I approached the main entrance I was meet with disgusts and anguish, thickened bodies and Plaited skins, on the surface floor, soaked with fresh Blood I could hear screams from the vault, the exact number thirty men and women were at the Murdered on that day. bareness and nudity were displayed in the passageway of the University Center.


The Front Hall was flooded with blood and murdered with body parts. all I could retain was the roars in my speech, I tumbled flat in the cold floor, and the last thing I recall were the echoes of sirens. when I gained conscious, I surrounded by two men with black robes, all I could do was shiver with ache, one them, grabbed a chair and got closer “he asked if I was attentive of my surroundings, I nodded with the confusion.



I was later admitted to St Clairs Hospital and it had been two days since the catastrophe at the university. 


With crispy accent she introduced herself as Dictetive Maxton. “I would like you to identify this portrait for me”.


 She pulled up an old photo to my surprises I nodded my head without hesitation she clarified that Maire was the key suspect in the mass murder of fifty Caucasian’ men and women, who happened to be a part of the community. I wobbled with disbelief “how could someone so close to me commit such act of injustices? I crumbled with tears. I gave my testimonial and I had no communication with Maire for all most three weeks. The next morning, I was discharged and taken back to my dorm room. I called my family and the best decision was to transfer to another state for the wellness of mental health. 


It was Monday lunchtime I recall the silence the silence of summer, all was vague and dull, I sat alone detained with unanswered questions, suddenly!   a woman walked towards me and held “it’s time you help us understand who really was Maire Blair? She introduced herself as Meredith crane “I am the head of the National Psychosis investigation Unity and I want your help in search of Maire Blair’.  


 We raided Maire apartment in East creek 731 heron dr. Mankato. The apartment was bare and lofty. But there is one thing that aided our understanding of Maire, there was an old rusty brown journal consisting of four records hidden below her wardrobe.
