There are several ways to proceed with the quest. For example someone had to bury the body, you could try talking to them to see if they've noticed something amiss. The victim had a dog too, if you have the talent that allows you to talk to animals you could try to see what he has to say.
As a general rule, the game can be finished no matter who you kill.
