(Taken from conspiracy magazine, Hidden Switch April 2041)

 

A piece of unusual information has just been unearthed here at the Switch. After doing a little digging and rooting around on the government’s own assassin’s den, we managed to uncover a little-known project.  The project was partially funded by the US Government, and mostly funded by private venture capitalists. It’s name was Hell’s Forge. It was originally proposed in 2029 as an initiative aimed at solving the prison overpopulation problem.

The concept, on paper, was a simple one. Several investors would pull together their resources, and construct a 17-story underground penitentiary. From what we were able to uncover in print and media coverage, the blowback on the project came when the government couldn’t come to terms with where to put it, how to run it and all of the safety issues that would arise out of such an endeavor.

In the end, the government had to do something about its growing criminal population issue. So, they turned to the formation of the Hunter Cell — or so we believe. The trouble has been that we can find no public record of their existence. No Executive Order, no letters of incorporation… nothing. More troubling is that this prison project wasn’t really brought into the public eye back then either. Some of the local media outlets caught wind of what was going on when they started roping off the work site. Beyond that, no one really ever knew that this was even being considered as an option.

The big questions still remain: Who were the private investors involved in Project Hell’s Forge? Why weren’t we as a public told about it? Do any of these investors have knowledge of the Cell’s existence?
