"No sir. Nothing's been reported as missing." Sventens replied. "if you are searching guests, shall I assist by gathering everyone together?"

Oh boy, here came the cavalry. The detective came barreling down the stairs like a gale-backed thundercloud, shooting off orders at every uniformed figure in sight. Attie stiffened.

Someone's pretty excited. Had they found something already? Something the rest of them had missed?

She leaned into the kitchen and the munchie-gathering woman. "Milady Gutherund! The detective's here again, we'd best be getting back in line."

"Yes," Kurgen shouted over his shoulder. "Assemble everyone in even rows, men on one side women on the other. Have everyone strip off everything that won't make them indecent. Coats, vests, overshirts, socks, whatever. All pockets empty, no exceptions. Anyone who doesn't comply will be cavity searched."

As if on queue, the officer from earlier passed the detective a datascroll. Tethered to the scroll via a very long cable was a portable printer, currently busy spitting out a stack of fresh search warrants.

"And yes, we have the authority to do that."

As the room burst into a frenzy of officers and guests shuffling around, the former organizing the latter into neat columns and rows, Kurgen turned to Officer Issac and pulled him aside, discreetly revealing the bloodied glove.

"Pass this description around to the scanners, if anyone has or is missing a glove that remotely resembles this one, they're to be separated for interrogation. If they're clean, they will be released when the search is completed. I'm not letting this turn into another AJ Thompson case. Make sure the civilians that led their investigation are searched first, as well as anyone related to either the Lady or Lord. I will need to see them as soon as they're done."

Desmond had been half-following the high-speed detective as he marched down the stairs, and started to move through the crowd as he tried to find the rest of their investigative party. The constant, nagging doubt that they had done the right thing kept probing the back of his mind, but he pushed on anyway. He didn’t have to worry about the decision making anymore, now he just had to follow the orders of the veteran detective and hope he knew what he was doing.

He saw the wobble of the kitchen door and thought he heard Attie’s voice over the din, and started to head that direction. The place was a sort of controlled chaos, and Desmond had to explain to at least three different officers that he was assisting Detective Kurgen in rounding up the guests. It felt like he swam rather than walked through the crowd, but he finally pushed through to the door to the kitchen. Part of him wished he had’ve just fallen asleep on the couch with Eris, grieving in ignorance to the whole thing. But that wasn’t like him, and thoughts like that certainly wouldn’t get him anywhere. He pushed through the door, “Ms. Atilax? The detective wants everyone rounded up for questions again…”

Barbera rolled her eyes, sighing as she turned towards the door, the pallet of niblets tucked underneath a crooked arm. She was just beginning to feel the wear of the entire affair sink beneath the brief moment to herself. That or she was just about to pass out from a ruined sleeping schedule. She didn't care which. "What's the hotshot want?"

Desmond suddenly pushed through the kitchen door. "Ms. Atilax? The detective wants everyone rounded up for questions again." Barbera stuck her head out and observed the goings-on. Outside she observed the frantic line that was being formed. Some of the guests were sluggishly getting into formation while others were muttering to one another, some even crying. "Are they going to question everyone there? In one big room? In front of each other?" She gave a questioning glance at Desmond and frowned lightly. "What's got him so excited about having all the guests organized all of a sudden?" She popped a round grape into her mouth and chewed.

Attie shrugged. "More interviews. Probably checking to make sure our stories haven't changed, but we won't know for sure 'til they tell us. If they tell us." She stepped aside to let Barbera back out into the foyer. "After you, milady."

Petya had made his way down the stairs and into the main foyer. He took his time, thinking the entire line of events through.

Wren was Perth's murderer, but then Tsukos and those documents...what exactly has been going on in these past two years? He pondered to himself as he stood at the front of the large line, peering around to see if Desmond or Attie were there as well.

Once the room had been organized into a semi-reasonable chaos, Kurgen once again mounted up on top of his couch, cleared his throat, and let his voice boom over the commotion. He was loud enough that for a split second, even the officers who had been working with him for years flinched and shot a quick glance to figure out what was going on.

"Alright, listen up!" he started his address slowly to make sure there was no doubts or questions about what was about to happen. "NO ONE is exempt from this search. If you decline you will be charged with impeding an investigation and will be detained separately for further questioning. Compliance will be rewarded with the opportunity to leave once as the search is concluded. If you wish to be screened privately, notify an officer and we will accommodate you. Officers, by now you should know what you're looking for."

Kurgen stopped for a moment to let the confused murmuring settle down.

"And yes, we are warranted in this search. You will each be read your rights separately prior to being inspected, and upon completion will be separated into another room to collect your belongings. Now, do exactly as I say and this will be a painless affair."

Another pause as the final guests and staff were moved into position. The room was tightly packed, but resembled a military formation. Men had been sorted to the room's left, women on room's right. Several of them looked aprehensive about a public search, but for the most part looked willing to cooperate, savoring the idea of finally being able to go home.

Sventens, Desmond, Petya, Attie, Barbera, and Jessica had been sorted to the fronts of their respective lines, each individually instructed to meet Kurgen after being inspected. For the moment, Tsukos and his assistant were nowhere to be found, presumably being questioned elsewhere about their involvement and blackmailing attempt.

If the murderer was going to be found, it was now or never.

"First, remove ALL outer layers of clothing. Coats, vests, overshirts, pants, socks, all of it off. No, no, sir, leave your underwear on!" he pointed at a lanky toad who was in the process of dropping his knit boxers. "Remove any and all items from pockets, and place everything neatly at your feet. Once an officer has cleared you, collect your belongings and move into the directed room to dress again. If you need assistance," he added, noting one woman struggling with her dress "just ask. We're here to help."

With as convincing a smile as an eight foot ram could muster, he stepped down from his pedestal and waited for the noted guests to meet him.

(for consistency sake, each search is comprised of a semi-thorough pat-down, followed by a search of the removed clothing, then a search of the items removed from pockets. Once the pocket item search is done, the inspection is done.)

Petya, lightly disgruntled, re-clothed himself and brushed off his suit and slacks before heading over toward Kurgen.

"Detective? You wanted the others and I to meet you after we'd been searched. What else is there to say? How are we to determine who is Innocent and who is guilty? Unless you have some kind of highly developed technology here right now, the murderer could very well escape right under our noses."
