Not Argus, by the way. Argus's father, Angus.
First of all, why did they give father and son such similar names? Breeds a lot of confusion.
Second, why is there NO sign whatsoever of Angus's fate? I figure he's probably one of those corpses in the cellar of the Sleeping Bull, but some actual proof would be nice.
If you want to do it simply, just put a scroll on one of the corpses written by Angus where he writes about how Batlin used magic to force Angus to show him the way to Silverpate's treasure and how he's afraid that once Batlin finds out he doesn't know the whole way (just the way to open the cellar) he'll be killed. Then a line or two could be added to Devra and Argus and Wilfred's dialogue after the scroll is found.
If you wanted to get a little more creative with it, you could also put a last will on Angus leaving everything to Argus and not Wilfred...then when everybody but Wilfred turns up dead after the Banes it'll look suspicious.
