HAPPIER TIMES: Fashion-starlet Edie Sedgwick recently moved into the MU campus and started producing a new series of “Screen Tests.” In this photo, taken less than 24 hours before her death, Sedgwick, dressed in her trademark black leggings, black bra, and fur coat, seemed optimistic about the future.

Edie Sedgwick. Dead. Again. Early this morning, Sedgwick’s body washed up on the shore of Eleonora Slough near Neeva Torok’s studio

MARIA NEIGHBORHOOD, MEDICI UNIVERSITY, THIS MORNING — Fellow learners, I have the most tragic and sad news to report: Edie Sedgwick is dead. Again. At approximately 5:30am SLT this morning her body washed up on the shore of the Eleonora Slough near the studio of classmate Neeva Torok.

Sedgwick had recently taken a studio at Medici University, begun a new series of Screen Tests, and was optimistic about the future. Reports from the crime scene are sketchy and sparse. I will update as details come in. One bystander reported hearing someone say,

I hate that bitch

Unfortunately the bystander quickly disappeared and we do not have identification for who made this statement.

Far below the giant “Feels Empty” sculpture at Neeva Torok’s studio, Edie Sedgwick’s lifeless body floats at the bank of the Eleonora Slough.

Having struggled with drug abuse in the past, Sedgwick tweeted on Saturday that her life was finally back on track:

The last known contact with Sedgwick was yesterday afternoon when she met with classmate Oona Nostra and they went to visit the Second Afterlife Cemetery. Sedgwick had talked about meeting later with classmate Skye Fairywren to do a screen test. So far no one reports having seen Sedgwick return to campus from Second Afterlife. Nostra appears to be the last person to see Sedgwick alive.

  2. oh if only the giant feels empty sculpture could talk, then we might have an eye witness. Me, I never liked Edie. I like pretty much everyone, but she came in and totally changed the neighborhood. She displaced the provost, flouted zoning laws by making her “studio” underwater, and started some video project that I don’t understand, and that made me feel inadequate because I don’t know how to make a video. Plus, she never even talked to me or said hello. I liked my old neighbor much better and can’t say I’m sorry to see this Edie-whoever go. I hate to say it, but this Edie person probably got what she deserved.

  3. I talked to her at her creepy cemetery home maybe 2 days ago. She was trashy looking and pale as normal. And I mean, I didn’t really have anything against her, she was just tacky. And unhelpful about the thing I wanted to discuss with her. But that doesn’t mean I killed her. Truly, if I wanted to kill her, there would be no body. Thats what I told Inspector/Kiosk Boy Ryan and its the truth. I have nothing to hide.

    And yes she was nice to me, I just think she was trying to persuade Ryan to come over and knock dead boots with her, so then I just kinda decided she wasn’t as ‘sweet’ as she appeared. I’m innocent, truly. bats my eyes Have a cupcake?

    (I think maybe the fact that Feels Empty is looming over her in statue form means more than we realize.)

  4. I haven’t met Edie. Not even one time. Nevertheless Bad Neeva may be right with her statements, though. Let me only add the fact that Sedgwick wore a fur coat! On the other side, she’s been away so long – has anybody told her how to behave nowadays?

    However, I don’t have any hints that could help to solve this case, but the photographer of the forensic department clearly has the wrong job.
    Very artistic work!
