Following Suspicious Death of Screenwriter, Uncut Version of Gray State Released – Watch It Here

ISIS released video Tuesday threatening to slaughter to Japanese hostages in the next 72 hours unless a $200 million ransom is paid.
Japan was reportedly unsuccessful in contacting ISIS over the hostage crisis.
An ISIS spokesman told Japanese broadcaster NHK that the group would release a statement “soon” about the hostages.
The deadline passed this morning.
FOX News reported that ISIS announced the hostages were dead.
A tweet from a Twitter account linked to ISIS said the hostages had been killed “because of Japan’s choices.” The tweet, on the same one that previously posted the countdown clock, warned that a new video was “being sent to production.”
