Fowl play is suspected in the death of a beloved, “communal” peacock that was found shot dead a little over a week ago.  According to officials, the bird may have been killed by a peacock assassin, hired via Craigslist. 

Mr. P, also known as Azul, had strutted around Azalea Heights in California, befriending the people who lived there. 

“Even the UPS guys would stop and take pictures,” one resident said. 

But on June 30, the peacock was found dead, with a single gunshot wound. 

“It’s really sad because he probably suffered for at least two or three hours before he died, possibly more,” another resident said. 

She claimed that a Craigslist ad searching for “a peacock assassin” had been posted just weeks before the violent slaying.

Futures dipped into the red during premarket trading this morning. For instance, the Dow Jones Industrial Average plummeted almost 500 points. That’s a 1.3% decline. Futures on the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq matched those losses.

Companies that stand to benefit the most from a strong economic recovery led this morning’s downfall, with names like Carnival and American Airlines sinking in the premarket. 

Digital currencies also took a tumble this morning. 

The Labor Department just released its latest look at jobless claims this morning, with that number increasing to 373,000 new filings. Analysts had anticipated 350,000 claims. 

And as the Tokyo Olympics quickly approach, Japan just announced that Tokyo would be in a state of emergency during the games. The decision comes as virus cases continue to climb in the region. 

Meanwhile, the total number of deaths tied to the pandemic has surpassed 4 million, as variants continue to make it difficult to curb the spread of the virus.
