Campbell goes to the hospital to visit Carr's worker who was found by Campbell and Vance lying bleeding and almost dead at Carr's cottage. He then sees his body being wheeled out by a hospital worker therefore this now a murder case however Sheriff Amber's office does not conduct a murder investigation specifically regarding the worker. In fact, the killing of the worker is practically ignored and basically just considered a dead witness. The worker happened to be an African-American so perhaps that is a telling sign about the attitude of the filmmakers and screenwriter during that time period. See more
