Darth Vadar announces the death of Obi Wan Kenobi, who the Empire had been hunting for two decades:
In a late-night appearance in the East Room of the Imperial Palace, Lord Vader declared that “justice has been done” as he disclosed that agents of the Imperial Army and stormtroopers of the 501st Legion had finally cornered Kenobi, one of the leaders of the Jedi rebellion, who had eluded the Empire for nearly two decades. Imperial officials said Kenobi resisted and was cut down by Lord Vader’s own lightsaber. He was later dumped out of an airlock.
Unfortunately for the Empire and its cohorts however, Kenobi’s death is not the end of the matter, the Jedi Master in a statement issued prior to the attack that resulted in his death, said that striking him down would only make him “more powerful than you could possibly imagine.”
