Please rephrase your question.


Civilized men are more discourteous than savages because they know they can be impolite without having their skulls split, as a general thing.

Yes and no. This goes back to whether the raincoat is significant. Tou can solve the problem without knowing about the raincoat, but it can also help you find out the answer if you know about it.

was Wayne murdered by someone he thought was an ally?

The scenario I'm thinking of is that Wayne and his killer were both involved in killing a third party. The raincoat was to block the blood spray or whatever. Then he was betrayed, and dumped in the river along with the guy they were trying to dispose of.

Was there something in the pockets of the jacket he was wearing that impeded his swimming ability? (e.g. rocks)

I don't know. The story doesn't mention that as an issue, which means it probably wasn't.
