The window appears to have been broken from the outside, and their are signs of a brief scuffle, but (thankfully) no blood. 

You don't see or hear anything outside.

Eric tells the natives "Jimmy has been taken!" and goes out to look for him.

As you get closer you can definitely tell it's a woman's voice.  Make another listen roll to determine direction.

You eventually track the sound to a blind alley.  There is someone laying in the shadows.  You feel almost certain they are dead.  People are beginning to come outside armed now that the noise has stopped, looking sheepish and terrified.

Eric, with his rifle held in one hand pointed upward moves in to inspect the person in the shadows. He then questions the nearest person as to what s/he heard or saw.

Mostly they hears a woman screaming and "jest awful sounds.  Sounds like nuthin' human would make."

RObert can make a Listen roll to see if the commotion eventually wakes him up when people flood the streets.

"Everyone should get back inside to stay safe."

Eric examines the body to see what happened.

You lose a point of sanity as you realize her murderer was most likely not human.  Her corpse is bloodless, with various bones broken as though she had fallen from some height, and there are several large puncture wounds.  Her abdomen is shrunken as well as though her entrails were no longer there.  You can only assume it is the spider being the Natives were referencing.

On the plus side you doubt that the monster has Jimmy.  The incidents were too close together.

Unless there's more than one of them.

Eric decides it's prudent to deal with this situation, figuring it's too late to find Jimmy at this rate. He searches the area for any clues or tracks that might lead to the woman's killer, taking 20 (for a total of 20). If there is anything available nearby, he covers her body.

If anyone else shows up, he tells them that the woman needs to be identified so next of kin can be notified, and her body needs to be burnt.

Robert hastily gets dressed and comes in search of whatever the commotion is.

Robert discerns there has been another murder in the poorer section of the city near the docks.

Eric sees some sort of clear substance on the woman which he cannot identify.  Thats about it.

Dread brewing in the pit of his stomach, Robert attempts to find the murder to investigate.

It takes you a bit but eventually you come upon Eric in a blind alley, looking pale.  There is also very obviously a body covered in a curtain...
