Appearances and Mentions

Murdoch Au Naturel

  • Dr. Antonio Rico is the only one in North America to use the revolutionary Vanghetti Method, taught to him by Giuliano Vanghetti himself.
  • Dr. Ogden has  only heard of this in theory: Dr. Vanghetti devised a way to use the contractions of the surviving musculature of the limb to enable manipulation of the prosthetic. Dr. Rico is impressed by Ogden's knowledge.
  • When presented with one of his finest prosthetics, Rico explains that each limb is carefully calibrated to its new owner and he remembers that the owner was an American. It was fitted for his arm on March 3rd, and he picked it up April 14,  Zachariah Marsh, care of the Palace Hotel.
  • Murdoch now knows Zachariah Marsh was murdered some time after April 14th, long after the naturists had moved onto the property. But even that date doesn't help narrow the list of suspects. Given that the naturists have created a place of refuge, perhaps the killer sought out the community as a place to hide – the killer might still be among them, leaving now would be more suspicious than staying.
