Item #: SCP-0000

Object Class: Neutralized

Special Containment Procedures: [to do: something about technically legalizing murder]

Description: SCP-0000 is a cognitohazardous disease only able to be contracted within the borders of the Chicago Metropolitan area. A number of conditions are required to contract SCP-000, which have been observed from investigations of past victims:

  • The subject must have witnessed an act legally defined as murder within the Chicago Metropolitan area.
  • The subject must realize that a murder was committed.
  • The subject must have the intention of reporting the act to legal authorities.

Once these conditions are met, the subject will have contracted SCP-0000. The disease has an incubation period of one hour, though it has been observed to have advanced in as quickly as thirty minutes.1

In the first stage, patients will report a heavy sweat, regardless of present environmental conditions. These symptoms will progress to a headache, and a heavy anxiety similar to those observed in cases of imminent heart attacks, before abating after twenty minutes.

In the second stage of SCP-0000, the subject's skin will begin to desiccate to an almost mummified stage, becoming unable to move after only fifteen minutes. Patches of epidermis all over the body will begin to crack and fall off, revealing the dermis underneath. This is the longest stage of the disease, lasting for nearly two hours.

In the third and final stage, patients will undergo spontaneous combustion. The fires will not respond to heat or oxygen dissipation and will burn for precisely three minutes before extinguishing itself. Subjects will usually perish at the beginning of this stage although a significant number have lasted to the point of disintegration, presumably through the fulfillment of unknown conditions of SCP-0000.

All that will be left of the subject after the cycle of SCP-0000 will be the skull, which will have a message inscribed in English.


A analysis of the handwriting reveals a match with GOI-001 leader Richard Davis Chappell.
