First things first. You poke the CORPSE with your BRUSHERHANG. Before, you were unaware of what a BRUSHERHANG could possibly be good for. Now you know: it's good at poking!
Anyway, yeah, he's dead.
You carefully use the BRUSHERHANG to pull everything out of his POCKETS. Despite your perpetual lack of HOPE, you nevertheless HOPE for SOMETHING GOOD.
Inside his pockets you discover:
- A small REVOLVER (DERRINGER)
- Four empty BULLET CASINGS (inside the gun)
- Two unused BULLETS (inside the gun)
- Three VARIOUS MONIES
- One BUSINESS CARD
Hmm. It appears the forcibly right-handed MAN was named "Charlemagne Belial." Poor fellow. Upon close inspection, it appears his HAND was cut off very shortly before he died, but the wound was not the cause of death. There are no other obvious INJURIES on the BODY. If you had to guess a cause of death... he died... of DEATH.
You're not a freakin' FORENSIC INVESTIGATOR, geez. If you had to guess something specific though, you'd say he looked like he died of FRIGHT. Less than an hour ago, at that.
