EBN: Professor Bartons death confirmed
After several attempts to revive the remains of Prof. Niels Barton, following a dazed and confused encounter with hostile robot forces, the Imperial Government had to face the fact that the brilliant scientist could not be restored. The robot forces had managed to infect Professor Barton with some kind of DNA/Soul-disruptor, probably a prototype made by the Professor himself, based on the design. The empire has lost one of its finest. On a stranger note, reports leaked from the rescue team state that when Barton was recovered, he was missing several body parts which have still not been accounted for.
