Oct 12, 1899: Fairfield Connecticut, population 4480 (up from 3,868 in 1892); near the booming city of Bridgeport population 70,900 (up from 48,866 in 1892). Electric lighting and other new inventions have become readily available in major cities, but are not yet available in Fairfield. Major buildings and city squares have smooth cement streets, but the majority of the city still has cobblestone. Oil lamps still light the streets in all but the poorer areas.
In Stamford and the majority of Fairfield, plumbing has become a standard convenience. However, in poorer areas, human waste is still manually disposed into a series of gutters that drain both North and South.
Public transportation is via horse-drawn cart, with only a few of the most wealthy owning cars.
Major news comes in the form of newspapers from Bridgeport, and are typically day old versions of the evening addition. Local news comes from the weekly Southport Times paper: a news press in the city of Southport, just a 15 minute carriage ride West of Fairfield, across the Southport Harbor bridge. Their first paper was published July 31, 1899.

In the end, police officials gave speeches explaining that the lair of these “horrific beasts” had been destroyed, and giving Carl Sinster a full pardon.
As usual, a small portion of the population believes it was all a cover-up. Why would these horrible flies only show up during the festival, and then disappear again? And why was Sinster never seen in public after his escape? Some theorize that he had actually escaped much earlier and that the other inmates were released during Sinster’s new killing spree to deceive the public. As to why they created this story of gargantuan murderous flies and publicly pardoned Sinster, the conspiracy theorists say there can only by one explanation: the police have no clue as to Sinster’s whereabouts, meaning
