“I have got to stop storing water in my clues folder.”
The victim's blood alcohol levels were absurdly high.
“A nasty fellow, by all accounts. Mid-30's, did odd jobs along the dock. He spent most of his time at The Red Herring, a local tavern, drinking and getting thrown out for brawling.
We found him washed up on the shore of the river, quite close to the Herring.”
Hired the Sunk Skunk for a delivery job that went bad.
“I sent him to deliver a load of my cargo a coupla days ago and haven't s-seen hide or hair of that th-thief since then!”

A taciturn mafioso, rumored to be a high-ranking member of the Crayfish Crew gang, rivals to the King Crabs.

“Business ain't been so good, lately. I was countin' on the Sunk Skunk coughing up and then selling The Red Herring for a ticket outta this dump.”
