Chapter 31 of Sanctuary begins with Popeye being arrested (wrongly) "for the murder of a policeman in a small Alabama town" (302). Later, after he has been (wrongly) convicted for the crime, the novel provides one detail about the victim: according to Popeye's jailer, "folks here says that deppity invited killing" for the "two-three mean things folks knows about" (313).
