Following the events associated with the murder of long-time Keys’ personage Toby Ireland, life had returned to some semblance of normal, and the little archipelago that could, kept on keeping on. All eyes were on the upcoming Southernmost Blues Festival headlined by the Tedeschi/Trucks band. A week of great music and island food had been planned. Key West was ready for a party having narrowly escaped harm from the “voodoo army” amassed by an evil genius intent on taking over Cayo Hueso, or Bone Island as the early Spanish explorers called Key West.

In the early 1970s, Charles River Laboratories brought 1,000 rhesus monkeys to the Florida Keys. The facility, housed on two islands, was used to breed monkeys for research purposes globally. Rumors ran rampant in the 1980s of genetic experiments being performed on Lois Key. Company attorneys denied the allegations, but the rumors persisted. In the late 1990s, litigation forced the Big Pharma giant to close its facilities and remove the monkeys from the Keys. After the Big Tide in 2024, odd reports of strange, man-like creatures plundering abandoned houses began to emerge from the backcountry. Most people wrote it off as an “urban legend.”
