It was only recently that Sky City Memorial Park was the location for a special event paying tribute to The Standard, with Alex Thomas unveiling a statue in his likeness to stand next to the statue of Gilbert Graham that has long been a familiar city landmark. But a lot has happened since then. Now, Alex Thomas is dead, brutally murdered in a crime that remains unsolved. With Sky City embroiled in an atmosphere of grief and confusion, Zena Zarthos – CEO of Zarthos Industries and Alex’s friend – will be using Memorial Park to host a special tribute evening in The Standard’s memory.
“We are all still trying to process this monumental loss,” Miss Zarthos said in a statement earlier today, “It is perhaps our city’s darkest hour. But in this difficult time, we must take a lesson from Alex, and find the strength within ourselves to carry on. I have arranged this event in Memorial Park so we can all come together to remember Sky City’s favorite son. And I shall be unveiling something that I can only hope pays suitable respect to his heroic legacy.”
The twin statues in Memorial Park had been a celebration of life, of a city – and its heroes – moving forward, staying relevant, and changing with the times. But now it stands as a commemoration of a tragic death.
