Scioly Assassination 74: Dead Island

I have spent many years pursuing my life’s dream. My work made me the butt of many jokes in the scientific community. Not many thought that reanimating the dead was a possibility. They were wrong.

Who am I? I am a rogue scientist who has accomplished the impossible. After experimenting on thousands of “travelers” and years of backbreaking research, I have created the greatest weapon known to man: a controllable zombie horde that responds to my every will. All that is left is to test it. The Scioly Community should serve perfectly for this.

I have successfully transported you all to my humble abode, a compound that covers my private island and stretches even farther below the surface. Escape is impossible. The only way to survive is to find and stop me, in person.

Welcome to Dead Island

1. The officers will be the next five people who send correct answers to the clue. Put in a bit of thought before posting. If you have not been around for awhile, it is less likely that you will be able to identify me.

2. There will be no "informants", but civilians may post

3. People will die. However, there are some exceptions. I will not kill administrators or moderators. In return, I ask that they not reveal my identity.

4. officers may die, but a police officer may protect another officer.

5. Once an officer has made three incorrect accusations, he may not accuse or protect anyone.

6. The assassin will provide clues which plainly point to his next victim, and occasionally to himself.

7. The assassin will continue to post with his true account, and may provide hints there.

8. When accusing someone of being Assassinator you must use the following template "I accuse (place name here) because (give reason here)." If you don't use this template when accusing the accusation won't count.

9. Once "killed" a user may not make any statements about the identity of the Assasinator.

10. Non officers or informants may post.

11. Each clue will last 48 hours, after which the Assassinator may kill.

12. If the Assassinator does not reply in 8 days after all protects are made, each officer gets a free accusation. However that accusation must be made next time the user posts and cannot be stored as an extra one to use later.

13. Each officer begins with one accusation. You will earn accusations as you protect correctly

14. The Assassinator wins after 15 incorrect accusations have been made, but the number needed to win goes down by one with each kill

15. The Assassinator reserves the right to add to these rules as he deems necessary.

Since there are a large number of people, I will allow only five the opportunity to attempt to track me down. Those five will be the first to correctly answer the following clue:

I was formed on October 27, 1992
I am headquartered in Druid Hills, Georgia
I recently warned the public to take precautions against a zombie apocalypse.
What am I?

All of the credit for this goes to winneratlife, but he converted the date (somehow..i don't fully understand it) and got 8/29 which is 124 days from the end of the year. As such, I protect myself

That's what LBs post used to look like (roughly)...odds are he was trolling though and eventually thought better of it.

It seems a hint is needed.
