DRKWND
On April 20, 2017, Rabbit #041 posted on tumblr that they received a floppy disk in the mail, labelled only "DRKWND". In a second tumblr post, once Rabbit #041 had accessed the disk, they revealed that the disk contained a zip file labellled "DRKWND.7z". Rabbit #041 was unable to access the file as it requires a password.

The DRKWND files Edit

On June 4 2017, Reddit user Alexgweeneyo discovered that the password to the DRKWND zip folder, based on Vince's clues in the video christmas., is 'home213'. Unzipping the DRKWND file revealed several small files with no extensions. Adding the .txt extension revealed them to be transcribed news articles.

NHG98011 Edit

This file introduces an alleged clairvoyant local to New Hope, Elizabeth (last name redacted). It mentions bodies of two people found, who were last seen in Lambertville. The EMH crew visited Lambertville in 2010 in their search for Jessa, where they found the disappearing body of the Dead Girl and the note from Linnie, as well as encountering the Rake for the first time, in the remains of the burnt down Lambertville High School.

The cleaned-up text for this file reads as follows:

In a remarkable turn of events, local police, with the aid of local clairvoyant, Elizabeth [REDACTED UPON REQUEST], have uncovered the bodies of both Amanda Powell and her young child, Joseph JR. Amanda, a professional logger in the area, was last seen across the bridge in Lambertville picking up groceries with Joesph three weeks prior to Elizabeth’s vision. The bodies were discovered fifty yards apart semi-submerged under heavy rocks in the icy waters of the Delaware river. Much to the surprise of Police Chief Deter, Elizabeth had successfully led a search party to the unfortunate scene at the rapids south of West End Farm. Police are holding comment until autopsies are completed. Funeral arrangements will be announced in the coming weeks.

NEW HOPE
Late last night the business of Elizabeth [REDACTED UPON REQUEST] was the scene of a three alarm fire. The building, located off of Bridge Street, was registered with the Historic Society as one of the oldest buildings in New Hope. Authorities believe arson to be the cause of the blaze which left nothing but foundation standing. Police are in the process of locating Dr. James Corenthal, the sole person of interest in the investigation. Dr. Corenthal is also currently wanted for questioning in relation to at least three dozen open cases spanning 25 states including Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Acting as Dr. Corenthal’s legal representative, William Davidson has asked local media outlets to issue a statement calling for Dr. Corenthal’s full cooperation as Davidson himself has not had contact with Corenthal in several months. Any residents with helpful information pertaining to James Corenthal’s whereabouts are urged to contact New Hope PD immediately.

"The Office of William Davidson" site Edit

Rabbit #041 also revealed that on the back of the disk was a handwritten url to a website, http://davidsonlawnj.info/. The website is fairly sparse of embellishment and contains typos, but is the alleged business website of William J Davidson, who is revealed in the DRKWND files to be Dr Corenthal's lawyer. The website says Davidson has been practicing as a family and health lawyer in the "greater Pocono Mountain area" since 1993. The website states that he currently works in and near Princeton, New Jersey, specialising in offering probate and estate planning for families and individuals.

Home page Edit

Information listed on the "Home" page of the website includes the following:

  • William currently manages 56 estates
  • He has 34 years experience
  • He has settled 1500 suits
  • He has ‘finalizied’ 375 adoptions
  • The copyright date for the website is 2014

About me Edit

The "About me" page features the below bio. The page also displays a photo (filename "useme.jpg"), presumably of William Davidson. He bears a striking resemblance to Dr. James Corenthal.
Useme
"Upon graduation from the law school at the University of Pennsylvania, William decided to devote his career to helping families in special circumstances and those suffering from medical malpractice. William spent 20 years as a pillar of the greater Mount Pocono community and more recently offers his estate holding services in and around Princeton, New Jersey.
William's current mission is to create an easy and compassionate working relationship between families and those who have established estates in their names."

Contact Me Edit

The "Contact Me" section of the website appears unfinished, but does list some testimonials, as well as a postal address:

P.O. Box 8173
Trenton, NJ 08650

Notes Edit

  • Given the other clues provided in christmas., it is likely there are further encrypted files to be received, and likely passwords are ark213/dark213 and vin213/vim213. 
  • The photo of William Davidson resembles Dr Corenthal, which suggests the doctor is in hiding, disguised as his own lawyer.
  • The numbers listed in the main section of the home page of William Davidson’s website add up to 1965.
  • The subscription option on the website is not functional.
  • The home page features an image of the Mercer Street Mansion.
  • The label DRKWND resembles the word Darkwind. This happens to be the name of a game that is free to play on Steam.

Speculation Edit

  • The filename of the photo of Davidson, 'useme', has significance. Alternatively, it could just have been the site designer labelling photos according to suitability for use on the site.
