Jerry, you couldn’t figure out you died. I don’t trust you to figure out how someone else did.

That said, but I don’t expect Robin’s corpse will offer too many answers to the coroner beyond “He’s been dead a while now.” Time of death has been contaminated by Rob being in the water for who knows many days, accelerating the rate his body cooled. I also expect he’s past the point of rigarmortis and his body has begun to decay.

Meaning, as far as the experts may be concerned, Rob could’ve died the day of the party, or a few days later.

You don't think Rob sort of drowned?
Oh yeah, being in a constantly filling and emptying drain probably destroys all manners of evidence.

The look on Jerry's face in panel four is just freakin' chilling. So satisfied...

Good luck with your computer! Hope it's a simple fix.

He's loving the thought of Robin's rather unpleasant death!

Thanks, though I fear that my computer has multiple problems and I have no idea what's causing any of them :<

Ah yeah. It just happens Jerry happens to know that Rob just happened to be drunk and hit his head and sort of drowned.

Said with an evil grin but at least he admitted he is happy. This I guess makes sense. If you believe the person killed you then sure.

The was Jerry said it? No way. I am not accusing Jerry of having a hand in this JUST yet but it is a string of many coincidences Jerry just so happens to know. Yep.

One more thing. Is this really it for Rob? I dunno. Does not add up. He sounded so important. Hm.
You know what would be funny? If Jerry used this and somehow pieced together what Dylan did. Huh. Because some of his words almost sound like snide remarks.

This stuff REALLY makes your brain come up with whatever possibilities. Geez :D

Ahahaha there are two reasons I bring up Rob a lot: I like his pink tracksuit and he has sad backstory ;)

This bit is just another reminder that Jerry also has a mean streak. For the most part, he is not a very empathetic boy!

Maybe while concussion Jerry was gone he showed up to Robin and spooked him, he fell, hit his head, and then drowned? Probably unlikely though, since as far as we know Dylan is the only one who can see Jerry.

Or possibly even Suit Jerry?

There is Suit Jerry, yes. Interestingly enough, Jerry is acting here almost like the Suit version. Huh. But it is probably just Jerry being an a-hole like Moth noted.
Could be that Suit Jerry is exactly that side but nothing solid to work with in my opinion.

Good point though.

And yeah, I think Dylan is the only one who can see Jerry HOWEVER I do not think we know EXACTLY how this works? Maybe Rob had enough connection with Jerry that he also could see his ghost. Hm.

look at his ghost fart thing- Jerry needs nourishment

Ghost beans give him teleportation powers

Surprisingly, finding cadavers back then was considered a past time. 0_0

It doesn't look like anything is blocking the body from floating away, so either it is very shallow and the water level never goes up enough to float the body, which seems unlikely with all the rain they've had recently, or it hasn't been there for very long. It doesn't take much current to move an object, and surely a storm -drain- is going to carry all manner of detritus along to it's exit eventually.

Curiouser and curiouser...
