    I think the guy was killed by his lover. He probably thought he could survive his wounds so he tried to keep the details a secret out of shame or else he’d had to live on with everyone knowing he was gay. If there was a woman involved it was probably the wife/gf of either one of them. Maybe he hid the details to protect the reputation of the woman? Or the guy?

    idk but I think maybe "Don" didn't accept his "sister" being engaged to some guy (owen) so he murdered her and put her in the grave but "owen" ran away and was hiding and somehow "don" found him and brought a partner, supposingly a female, and they murdered him, and they called and said they want him near "his sister" because he thought they were "lovers". idk its kinda my theory.

    Maybe it was in fact a lover’s quarrel. Maybe the man that Artemus was w in the St. regis Kansas city hotel was a man Artemus was cheating on Don with, so Don found out, got mad, tracked Artemus down, and killed him. The woman that Don went w to the hotel Artemus was at was there so that Don wouldn’t back out and let Artemus live bc they obviously dated.

    I'm thinking Roland might have been gay and "Don" was his partner who he cheated on his girlfriend with. It would also help explain why his mother and him didn't correspond for so long and why no one came forward to identify him until a year and a half later, since him being gay would've been viewed as shameful at the time

      I think Don and the woman are siblings. And Artemus prolly dated his sister and cheated on her. "I'm doing this for my sister." And when he said that they should bury Artemus on that graveyard so he would be closer to his sister, maybe his sister lives near there and not buried in the tombs. The three of them are prolly in some kind of mob too lol. They have very dark minds. Imagine knowing you'd get killed and just say there was nobody who did that to you. Plus, he was seventeen. Where does he live during that time. But lol gay🤣

    I think the anonymous person who sent money and flowers for his funeral could've not identified him because there were possibly other ramifications that could've come from that, if this was a mobster or otherwise similarly complicated murder
