Daily Prophet: February 28,1998
Saturday evening, a peaceful family was struck by horror and tragedy. The Selwynn family, long time supporters of the Ministry of Magic, frequent donators to the Ministry's many charitable endeavors, and vocal advocates of wizarding rights were brutally murdered in their own homes.
Neighbors expressed shock and outrage at the act, citing their neighbors as peaceful, friendly people who had never caused offense to anyone who met them. "Mrs. Selwynn made me a pie when my son was in Mungo's," one neighbor laments of the eldest Mrs. Selwynn. "She was always so friendly."
While official investigation reports have yet to be announced, sources within the Auror department claim that known supporters of Undesirable #1, Harry James Potter, were seen in the area, and reportedly had threatened the younger Mr. Selwynn on a previous occasion. An anonymous source also claims that Potter himself was seen fleeing the area.
More on this story as the details are released, but the hearts and best wishes of the Daily Prophet staff go out to friends and extended family of the Selwynn's, and wish them the best in this time of grief.
