Sorry, I had that backwards. Kansas is in sepia.

Pig mentions that he went to Silk's place and didn't find him 
there. I regard this as evidence that he didn't kill Hyacinth 
-- and besides, I don't think his rider would have permitted it.

If one wanted to say someone had killed Hyacinth, one could 
suppose it was the Gaonese led by Hari Mau, who came out to
Endroad looking for Silk and didn't find him; however, I would
be inclined to suspect that they didn't find him because they
arrived after Horn's spirit entered Silk's body and the newly
formed Narrator left the building. At this point, I think 
Hyacinth just died, and Silk gashes himself in grief.
