Palanthas - In a stunning turn of events, the true heir of Adam Aazim was arrested this week, accused of having murdered the Ergothian merchant.

Investigations made by Ciljour Mainstream, Red Robed wizard hired by the city to find the true heir to Aazim's fortunes, revealed that the heir was Ned Snakes, son of local snake charmer Patricia Snakes.

According to a City Guard spokesperson, the mother's vocation raised some curiosity and, based on evidence gathered, the City Guard sent a patrol to investigate the Snakes residence. Several pots similar to the one found by Aazim's side were found and confiscated and the Snakes were arrested. They both confessed to the murder of Adam Aazim.

When Uri Capote, Sergeant of the City Guard, was asked why they didn't find the murderer earlier, he had this to say, "We can't be everywhere, and we can't know everything. Sometimes, it takes a little bit of luck to catch a criminal, and if you ask me I think Adam himself helped us find his murderer. After all, who keeps a record of an illicit affair?"

Due to this turn of events, the Senate announced that Nicholas Aazim was the rightful heir to his father's estate. When asked how he felt about the whole situation he stated, "You know, I was worried that I would be stuck without a single copper, but in the end I'm happy that my father's murderers were found and that I finally get what is rightfully mine. I just hope this is the last that I'll have to suffer from my father's indiscretion."
