Running out of ideas where to look for clues next, the posse decided to talk to the hotel proprietors. They learned that Clayton, the drunk who was strangely proficient at setting Walter’s broken arm, was staying in the room next to Suzy’s regular room. They convinced the hotel owner to let them in Clayton’s room.
Under the bed in Clayton’s room were a medical bag and a large carpet bag. In the medical bag were the usual medical supplies, including a black case that looked to hold a scalpel, but the scalpel was missing. Kuruk noticed a stain on the carpet bag that looked like blood. Inside the bag was a head with several arms and legs sewn to it. When Kuruk went to smash it, it came to life and tried to defend itself. Kuruk was able to easily crush it with his warclub.
