Sir Charles's body was found out near the moor. The police report stated that he was out walking towards the moor but everyone knew that he never went walking at night. He was deathly afraid of the curse placed upon his family and the "hellhound" that haunted the moor. Therefore, he would have never gone walking at night of his own accord. 

The police report also stated that there were no footprints near his body, but there were. There were tracks of dogs near his body.
