Delaware Murder Mystery

In a 1993 story from Delaware, a murder victim, with no identification, was discovered along I 95 in Delaware is still unidentified twenty years later. He was Asian or Native American, 5' 10", around 140 lbs., and his slacks were a size 28 waist. He had long black hair.......shoulder length, and perfect teeth, but was an heavy smoker. The tip of his ring finger on his right hand had been surgically amputated, and the nail of his pinky finger on his left hand was slightly longer than the rest of his nails. Above is an artist's sculpture of how he may have looked. I will ask the Tarot what happened to him.

We start with the six of pentacles, reversed, crossed by the Knight of Pentacles. It would appear that our Knight had a unpaid debt of some sort. The pictures above are almost perfect Knight of Pentacles pictures......dark hair, brown eyes. This person would also have been the type to move slowly toward a goal, rather than quickly. As a cause, or foundation to the matter at hand, we have the Wheel of Fortune, reversed. This could either be a turn of bad luck, out of the Knight's control, or on a more mundane and literal level, a gambling issue. Perhaps both. Behind him was a woman, the Queen of Pentacles reversed, who could not be trusted. Somehow, she played a role in his murder. Her physical description would be similar to his in that she has(d) dark hair and dark eyes. She was not very kindly disposed toward him, and it was his mistake to trust her. The Fool describes what should have happened here, but didn't. There was a choice our Knight could have made that would have saved his life somehow, either by getting him out of harms way, or by removing his killers. But he allowed matters to continue. The High Priestess follows this card, telling us that there is still at least one person out there who knows what happened, but is not talking. The High Priestess also reiterates the feminine influence.

The four of pentacles, a card of hoarding, comes up in the place of fears and worries. This is what the Knight was doing before he got killed......holding onto something material that someone felt he owed him or her. In the place of environment, we have Temperance, reversed. This points to a toxic mixture of personal and business affairs which were not compatible. In the place of his hopes, we have the six of cups, which speaks of childhood memories. Note that this is the second six to appear in the reading; a possible correlation between monetary unpaid loans and investments, and children and childhood memories. Perhaps the two were connected in his life. The last card is the ten of pentacles, which is a loss of family honor or inheritance. I think this Knight's family, should we ever find out who they are, knows exactly what happened.
