Mysterious Death at the Horn o' Plenty
by Paul Record, Staff Writer
Palanthas -The City Guard is investigating the death of an elf female found earlier yesterday at the Horn O'Plenty Inn, Guard authorities said.
Shortly after dawn, a maid found the body in one of the inns rooms. City Guard officials were summoned and the crime scene was cordoned off. Sol Cane, an Inspector of the Silver Hands, soon arrived on the scene to supervise the collection of evidence. After evidence gathering was completed, the body of the elf was remanded to the custody of the Halls of Healing for examination.
The clergy of the Light Bringer examined the body, identified by them as that of Nestaria Starglow, an elven healer formerly of Silvanost. The clerics determined that Nestaria died from massive blood loss caused by a knife wound. "She was stabbed once in the stomach and marks on her skin are consistent with a blunt trauma. She later died from blood loss," said Tyron Mycheal, spokesman for the Halls of Healing.
The office of the City Guard did not confirm if the owner of the Horn O'Plenty would be investigated. "It is still too early to confirm any details," said Guard sources.
