0011722: citizen werecreature killing another citizen will "find" the citizen it kills while still transformed
I had two soldiers walled off because I suspected they might have been bitten by a werecreature.

One of them was infected, and killed the other.

Right after the kill, while the killer was still a werecreauture, the game gold me the victim "has been found dead". They were in a completely walled off area with no other citizens around.

This seems like a bug, since the werecreature, while transformed, should not be finding dead bodies like a normal citizen would.
See "Description". I do not know if this always happens.
No tags attached.

Well.....this really depends on what "found" even means. There's no reporting system in the fortress yet. And who is the player if not a representative of all of the citizens in the fortress, one of whom has legitimately seen a body, even if they're walled up and transformed into a beast? Citizens who can't talk, citizens who are mad, citizens who are beserk, even citizens who are suffocating and about to die can all "find" bodies right now.

yes i suppose this is more of a missing feature than a real bug.
