Terry Ryan is a guard at the New York Public Library.
While Terry Ryan was on night shift, a small time thief, Mike Fraser, broke into the New York Library via the booster valve room. Ryan heard Fraser and confronted him, however a short chase through the library ended once Ryan tackled and cornered the thief.
As Fraser resisted Ryan's demands to put on handcuffs, they were both surprised when they heard something large approaching. Fraser began to panic, even more so when he saw a large creature come up behind Ryan. As Ryan turned around, he was brutally torn apart while Fraser watched frozen in fear.
When library staff found and reported the gruesome scene the next morning, the police spent much of the day clearing up some of Ryan's blood. Captain Henry Dickson decided to leave two officers inside the library until a full forensics team could process the scene the next day.
