Case File: Echo vs. Pan

Police Reports

Case Description: Complainant (Echo) accuses Defendant (Pan) of harassment and murder. Pan became obsessed with the nymph Echo, who was cursed to only repeat what others said. Echo totally refused Pan, though, so the infuriated goat-god reportedly riled some satyrs (or possibly some shepherds) who tore the nymph apart.

Case Status: Case closed. We really tried to bring Pan to justice on this one, but you just can't catch the guy. These days, you can still hear Echo whenever you call out over the mountains and hear what sounds like your own voice coming back to you.
