Skinner quest bugged?

I've gone to the bridge district and started investigating the skinner murders. I found the tanin and hide evidence but left the area before visiting the tanner.

When I returned, Aegisfield is dead, just a pile of items where he should be standing. AFAIK if this happens, the tanner is supposed to have killed him and his body should be found in the oven in the tanner's cellar but when I went to confront the tanner, there was no sign of his body anywhere. Is this a bug? There doesn't seem anyway to complete the quest now.

    So you didn't speak to Aegisfield and tell him what you found before leaving the area?

    Could be something else, unrelated killed him.
    A fight with some thugs?

    If you are ambushed by the thugs (the group with two firing crossbows, just below where you see the Red Wizards is quite a tough group) and if a guard sees the fight, they will join the fight and will get killed sometimes.

    Is it possible you triggered an ambush then left before they were all killed?

    I didn't talk to Aegisfield apart from when he gives out the initial information about the murders on my first arrival in the area.

    I'm pretty sure there was noone around who could have killed him *but* on my return to the area, I was immediately attacked by a thug so perhaps this thug had killed him during my first visit to the area? That fight was bugged as well - I killed the thug and then the neera cutscene started and resurrected the thug which made me wonder if that cutscene might have something to do with the Aegisfield problem.

    For other reasons I wanted to reload anyway from a save before visiting the bridge so it's not a problem anymore.

    I'm pretty sure the problem was the thugs attack; a couple of them spawns close to Aegisfield in 2.5 and they attack him. I think it's a bug that needs to be addressed, i will do it asap

    I believe I have the same problem except I can't even find Aegisfield's body. I feel like I have scanned the entire Bridge area with out any sign of him or his equipment. Like the OP, I got the quest then left the area on the way back was attacked by thugs.

    Correction, what I meant was I can't even find his possessions, not his body. Obviously, if I could find his body, I could finish the quest.

    If he's killed by thugs I don't think his body and possessions will stay on the ground - they will evaporate like normal loot. If you can't find anything that's probably because too much time has passed since he was killed.
