The following log has been compiled based on footage and audio recordings from multiple CCTV cameras monitoring ████████ Street, ████ Street, and ███████ Road. The aggressors were subsequently taken into custody and were identified as G█████ W███████ (22), A████ L████ (20), and D█████ H█████ (23) (further VG-0014-01 through -03). The victim was identified as K████ P████ (38) (further VIC-0027).
(VG-0014 leave ████████████ public house as a group and travel south along ████████ Street)
VG-0014-02: (indecipherable) zombies, right?
VG-0014-03: Who you reckon done it?
VG-0014-03: (indecipherable) terrorists or whatever.
VG-0014-02: Zombies is like science isn’t it? Muslims don’t believe in science.
VG-0014-03: Sure they’ve done anthrax and stuff.
VG-0014-02: Yeah, but zombies would be like Resident Evil. All labs and test-tubes.
VG-0014-03: Who you think then?
VG-0014-02: I don’t know, do I? Not a bloody doctor.
(VG-0014 pause at ████████ takeawayto purchase chips)
VG-0014-02: (indecipherable) how it always starts, isn’t it. You hear about some people dying in a funny way and the next thing you know there’s soldiers on the street telling you everything’s under control.
VG-0014-03: That’s films, though, that’s not how it’d really happen.
VG-0014-02: It is really happening.
VG-0014-03: We don’t know that, all we know is there’s zombies.
(VG-0014turn onto ████ Street)
VG-0014-02: If there’s zombies, you really trust this government to deal with them? (indecipherable) gone mad.
VG-0014-01: I’d rather it was them than us.
VG-0014-02: Ha, true.
VG-0014-03: What if it’s them that’s done it, like?
VG-0014-02: Well, why would they?
VG-0014-03: For fun, I don’t know. Why do they do anything they do? Here, hold my chips a moment.
(VG-0014-03pauses to urinate in a doorway)
VG-0014-02: Fuck sake, at least go in a bin.
VG-0014-03: Don’t want to make a bin man get pissy hands.
VG-0014-02: They’re probably sort of at risk now.
VG-0014-03: How do you reckon?
(VG-0014 continue walking)
VG-0014-02: Like if someone gets attacked, gets bitten of a night. They pass out, and they turn. Poor bin man disturbs them in the morning and gets bitten himself.
(VIC-0027 comes into view further along ████ Street at this point, and leans briefly on a lamppost)
VG-0014-03: Ah, I don’t want to think it. It could happen, couldn’t it?
(VIC-0027 begins walking unsteadily in the direction of VG-0014)
VG-0014-02: Oh God, there’s no doubt about it.
(VG-0014-01 points out VIC-0027)
VG-0014-01: He’s walking a bit funny.
VG-0014-03: You shit yourself? He’s just pissed. (louder) Having a good one, are you?
(VIC-0027 turns in the direction of ███████ Road. VG-0014 look amongst themselves and break into a run to pursue)
VG-0014-02: Hey! Hey, mate! Stop!
VG-0014-03: What’s your name, mate? (indecipherable)
VG-0014-01: Come here! (indecipherable)
(Both VIC-0027 and VG-0014 come to a stop on ███████ Road. VIC-0027 turns to face them, staggering)
VG-0014-02: Ah, Christ! Look at his eyes!
(VG-0014 descend on and strike VIC-0027, who strikes out at them. Subjects are, at this point, too far from the camera to fully discern the sequence of events)
VG-0014-03: (indecipherable) get him down! Get his head! You have to get the head!
(For the sake of full disclosure, the three utterances above are attributed to their speakers based on the best guess of ██████████████████████ There remains a possibility they are wrongly attributed, or even unrelated ambient sounds)
VG-0014-02: Fucking little (indecipherable)
VG-0014-01: Argh – ah, Jesus –
(VG-0014 back away from VIC-0027, who has fallen and is presumed dead at this point)
VG-0014-02: Oh shit. That was close. Who knows (indecipherable) might have done?
VG-0014-03: We saved our own lives, for a start.
VG-0014-01: I think he fucking bit me.
VG-0014-02: Oh God, no.
(VG-0014-01 holds out his arm)
VG-0014-01: Look, there – oh Jesus –
(VG-0014-02 and -03 reel and throw up their hands)
VG-0014-02: Jesus Christ, man, fucking hell –
VG-0014-03: We’ve (indecipherable) if we get you to hospital, tie off your arm?
VG-0014-01: No. You, you have to –
(VG-0014-01 visibly shakes, screams and then strikes himself)
VG-0014-01: Kill me.
VG-0014-02: No, no, come on –
VG-0014-01: Kill me. Please. For God’s sake.
VG-0014-02: We can’t, I can’t do that.
VG-0014-01: You know how it works. I don’t want to be one of them.
VG-0014-03: Oh Jesus, he’s right.
(VG-0014-02 and -03 strike VG-0014-01 in the head repeatedly. VG-0014-03 audibly weeps. VG-0014-01 falls and the remainder of VG-0014 continue to strike him. Eventually they cease)
