As the thugs drive the wagon down the road, they catch sight of a shepherd girl, and attempt to accost her.

She is a member of the Stormwind Assassins, and has been sent to rescue him and help him back to Stormwind (37-38).

He had listened to stories intently, and fed them poisoned soup, which had killed them within the hour. He had hid their bodies and then sold the farm.
