Subject: RE: Killers of Eden - Killer Whale Song
Gu'day Bob! Seems present evidence in his skull is that old Tom died of an absess when he tried to stop them from taking the last whale and breaking the covenant by holding onto the tow line. According to an eye witness, Logan's daughter, her father reversed and then went forward, yanking a tooth out of Old Tom's mouth. The infection may have been instrumental in his death.
Bless the old fellow, he was true to the end.
