It was murder

Start
Interesting, where did you get that scrap of fabric? Hmm, in the forest... I think I should take a look at it.
Finish
I suspected as much. We searched the forest and found Mr. Charlton's body there. He owned the largest property in the area. I don't have enough men at the moment... but I'm sure you can give me a hand in this matter. I hereby authorize you to act as my deputy. Ride over to the mansion, try to find a clue there and follow it.

Start
Mr. Charlton's property is in front of you. This is a proud property that is equivalent to a small town in terms of value and estate size. But the property is completely deserted and no one has been here for at least a week, aside from a few wild animals. You quickly start searching for clues. Maybe you can find something...
Finish
You find an old photo of Mr. Charlton and get a few clues about people who were in this house not long ago. It must still be possible to find them somewhere in the vicinity.

Start
A young Mexican is sleeping beneath a tree. According to the description, this should be one of the people who were on the property just recently. Wake him up by kicking him in the side!
Finish
Arghh! Who's there?! What, how... deputy?! What I was doing at the property? I worked there, mucking out the stables for that scumbag Charlton. What, he's dead? No, it wasn't me... Why would I want to kill him? But maybe you should ask the dancer. As far as I know, he always promised to marry her, but wrote her out of the will when he was done with her... She is certainly capable of murder!

Start
You meet a woman in a travelling merchant's wagon who is obviously a dancer and stares sadly at a picture of Mr. Charlton. You approach the wagon on your horse and address the woman.
Finish
Huh? {PLAYER_NAME}, deputy? What do you want from me? Whether I know Mr. Charlton? Robert Charlton, of course. He was my fiance... Why the past tense? Because he got that tramp pregnant... that maid. What?! He was killed! No, I didn't know that... oh, my darling! I'm sure it was that Mexican Enrico! He was also in love with Julia, the maid. When he found out that Robert got her pregnant, he broke a window and demolished the entire smithy... I'm sure it was him! Or maybe that supposed son? Every time Robert drank too much, he got so incredibly sad and angry. One time he told me that he has a son out of wedlock and put him into an orphanage, after a friend pressured him into it. I think he called him Daniel. Oh, my Robert... Take one of these items and put it in his grave. Both of them meant a lot to him.

Start
Ahead, you see a lonely rider with a pair of dangerous-looking revolvers. He makes a very downcast impression on you. He notices you very late and you can just catch him hiding an old photo of a woman in his saddlebag. You ride over to him and nod at him. He doesn't seem to be very eager to speak, but you still address him.
Finish
What do you want? Well, what does a deputy want from me? Do I know a Charlton? I'd prefer not to, but I have that misfortune. Disappeared, you say... ha, let the vultures get him! He might be dead? Even better... the maid probably poisoned him. Why do I say that? Because that respectable gentleman took advantage of her, and right in front of his fiance! She was utterly miserable. And then there was her friend, the Mexican. How do I know all this? I was a... guest at the mansion. I was there on personal business, but that's irrelevant here. My name? Daniel! And now leave me alone, I want to get to the next town, to a hotel where I can sleep!

Start
You ride across the pastures of a large breeding ground. Large herds of horses are to your left and right, along with a few men who are currently trying to break in some of the horses. After a while you come to a ranch, where an older man is smoking a pipe on the porch. It's Mr. Cartwright, who is probably known to everyone in the area.
Finish
Well, who do we have here? Hmm, how can I help you, deputy {PLAYER_NAME}? Do I know Mr. Charlton? Hmm, yes, that was a long while back. Once upon a time, we used to be friends. But then there was that deal with his bastard son... he didn't want to acknowledge him. That made the mother so unhappy, she died, and then he put the boy into an orphanage. That was just too much for me. I couldn't look him straight in the eye anymore after that shameful deed. I never saw him again. Were those all your questions? Or should I tell you a few more stories? No? Too bad, it was just getting interesting...

Start
At a river near a large -house, you come across a pregnant woman who apparently wants to apply for a job as a maid. You sit down next to her and ask her for her name.
Finish
My name? I'm Julia. Yes, I worked for Mr. Charlton, but I ran away. He... I couldn't take it anymore. Why? He... he violated me. And I was afraid that my Enrico would avenge me, once he found out I was pregnant. No! My Enrico would never hurt anyone. Never. What?! Mr. Charlton was killed? No, no, it's out of the question that it was Enrico! Who else could it have been? Maybe his fiance, she was always jealous of me, because Mr. Charlton was always giving me lecherous looks. Or maybe Mr. Cartwright. Why Mr. Cartwright? Because he came to visit once and the two men had a very loud argument. No, I didn't hear what it was about. Only that Mr. Cartwright threatened Mr. Charlton. Oh, it's so late already... I have to get to that house quickly and introduce myself. But who would want to hire a pregnant woman?

Start
You quickly tell the sheriff everything you found out.
Finish
Hmm, interesting. So I was right to make you a deputy. You did good work and found these five suspects. Unfortunately the evidence isn't strong enough yet to convict the true criminal. Go back out and keep looking for clues. I think you'll be most likely to find something near the property. Good luck! And remember, the longer you wait, the less of a chance we have to catch the murderer.

Yes, it all fits together. The branding iron, the poison, and the plans to commit a crime, signed by C+C... Everything points to Mr. Cartwright. Mr. Charlton and Cartwright must have planned something that Mr. Cartwright definitely wanted to keep under wraps... Excellent work. As a reward for your good services, you can take over the arrest. And remember, he killed someone. That means you need to bring him to me dead or alive!

Start
You're riding to the ranch of Mr. Cartwright, who is sitting on his porch again, calmly watching his horses. You ride up to him, pull out your weapon and tell him that you know everything. He beat Mr. Charlton to death in the forest. Quick as lightning, the rancher reaches under his chair and pulls out a revolver...
Finish
Luckily that ended well. Mr. Cartwright has been turned over to the authorities. He committed two murders. The first was 20 years ago, the mother of Daniel, Charlton's son, and then later Mr. Charlton. All to make sure that the secret he and Mr. Charlton shared would never come to light. It feels good to have caught such a criminal. Good work!
