VIZ Media: Urgent Communique from LMay 10th 2007

Special Investigation Headquarters for
Criminal Victim Mass Murder Case
TO: Citizens of the United States
RE: SEARCH FOR KIRA
Our original investigation into the perpetrator behind the recent murder of criminals has been focused on the Kanto region of Japan. While we were able to concentrate our efforts there due to localized television broadcasts, we have reason to believe that Kira is now located in the United States.
We have ascertained that Kira needs both a person's name and face in order to carry out his crimes. Because of this, he has been able to protect his own, making our efforts to identify him difficult.
We must advance our efforts to reveal his identity before the number of victims increases and before the innocent citizens of the United States are counted among the fatalities. In order to do this, we are asking for your assistance.
The newest clue is simple, but we believe, will be critical in closing this investigation. Kira's actions are well-planned and thought out, so we must assume that he left this clue because he is either taunting us or wants to be caught.
Please review the clue carefully and remember that a good detective will not study a clue once, but revisit it repeatedly to get a new perspective until the case is officially closed and the criminal brought to justice.
