The Infinite 8 mystery

Recommended Posts

Midnightz

Merle is presumably dead as per that newspaper clipping. I think that tazer dude is some other whacko.

There are signs leading to the idea that Merlewas obsessed with the killer but not actually the guy. That's what I meant. I wasn't too clear sorry.

Nowhere ever does it even suggest these are murder victims. Where the 8 rests is where the UFO is in the sea at palletto bay. No proof of any murders or bodies buried there so stop with the misleading

Actually, you can find the bodies in the very top of the map, where all the pockets of land are. It's EXTREMELY hard to find, but if you keep looking, you'll find body bags underwater. I warn you though, they are very tough to find. Go on YouTube. I'm sure there are people that have done this too.

Yeah, there's 8 bodies bound and wrapped in plastic in that area.

 

As for Merle, haven't seen anything in the game to suggest he wasn't the killer. Such as?

I didn't look through the 13 pages of posts that are already on here so this might have been theorized already but...

 

What if Merle was a scape-goat for the Infinity Killer? (further mentioned as "IK").

 

The two parts of the mystery I have been studying to come to this idea are: "8 won't wait" and "8 is just infinity stood up"

 

8 would be Merle, who wouldn't wait for the IK to finish his/her murders, and so IK decided to let him get captured.

 

The second inscription would relate to the last part of the number poem again. Being "stood up" could be the same as IK thinking Merle wasn't waiting for him to finish his job.

 

Obvious problems: There were 8 young men who went missing in 1999. Eight bodies have been found on the north shore. The graffiti thought to be left by Merle in the prison knows far too much information about where the bodies were hidden. There was evidence connecting Merle to the victims in his house.

 

But all in all, the Infinity Killer could still be out there! DUN DUN DUNNNNNNNNN!!!!

 

This is the theory I was referring to. A theory is just a theory though. You're probably right that they're unrelated, but I really wish there was a way to view the 3d model of whichever person steps out behind you to zap you near the van. Maybe when/if the PC version comes out?

Ahh. Yeah, when PC version comes out. I read a post that said you can prevent Trevor from being tazed by him if you enable his special ability on approach of the random event. The poster said he could be chased off. Maybe see him then?

I'm pretty sure that The Infinite 8 killer was an alien,at merles old house at the front there is a small symbol that looks like a mountin, the same mountin that can be seen at the cable cart station which is heavily linked with aliens and also looks abit like chilliad. when the killer was on the run he left several messeges around mount chilliad on of which sais " they want me they can have me, But they can never take my people" if your referin somebody as 'my people' ur obviously in a different group as the people (fib) who are chasing u http://imgur.com/tRfac7X,Ha5yqBp,5BqTzzU,YSeeSKx,ysJMwzP#0

 

Im new around here so what i just said is probably a load of bullsh*t or has been found before but hey ho

The mountain drawing is most likely the same as the one in the prison which shows in plan the spur at the northern end of the island.

 

TBH, I've been searching high and low with this for months to try and find some proof that will allow us to construct the story a little better than that posted by An Evil Vet in the OP (which seems to have holes of its own). Unfortunately there is little actual proof and a lot of people with various ideas as to what the available proof means.

 

I'm starting to think it was intentionally left open ended for either DLC or just because that's how some of the best stories are; open to individual interpretation.

Why are hikers constantly going missing in GTAV still, years after Merle has died? A copycat killer or is the real one on the loose still?

 

Or, are they suggesting they are being abducted by the chiliad UFO, somehow?

 

EDIT: Also, "8 won't wait to become 9" is how the sentence should have finished.

@EvilVet

 

Can you change the OP to include the quotation marks around 'MOM' and remove the apostrophe in won't wait in your description

 

I don't think it has much bearing on things but its better to be accurate with the information. You never know this might even ring a bell with someone to get this advanced (if its possible to).

 

Cheers

I would guess it would be the same as the OP. The recent discussion is more to do with the holes in that story and trying to either fill in the gaps or give an interpretation that makes more sense.

 

I think the story probably wasn't meant to be scrutinised as much as some of us are.

The drawing on chiliad matches the northernmost part of the map perfectly and has 8 boxes but two are incomplete, and the old burnt down house may have the mystery 8 killer drowned in the water nearby

I bet there is something about taking pics with the phone of all the cans and then something happens...who knows. I could see them putting this in the game though it would be worth a shot to try it out.

Check out Reddit, a lot more barrels have been found along with a high concentration in the city (along with some theories that I don't necessarily agree with).

 

For some reason its not letting me post links on here but if you go to the chiliadmystery sub and search for infinity (sort by date) there is a couple of posts there from last week about it from poster renegaderule.

 

If anyone can post the links I would appreciate it. Thanks.

Sorry but this topic deserves a necro in my opinion.

It's one of the most understated topics within GTA V. It is >10x more interesting than the noire murder mystery Rockstar added in next gen version.

There are still debates and unanswered questions relating to this mystery and with the release of GTA V on PC, even more people can learn about this subject and maybe even find more details within the game files.

You know, all those ones you already figured out,...but look, the glass is only half full, there's still more to find! Mystery, why you taunt dull people, bad mystery?
