Who is the dead guy?
Anyone have an answer to who the dead guy is in the tower at the beginning of the game?

There is a theory that the guy was a version of Dewitt that failed.Maybe the Dewitt that the Luteces had tried before they sent our Booker in.

Interesting.

He was a guard for the Lighthouse that was supposed to kill Booker if he showed up. However the Lutece's apparently killed him before Booker got there. sm

I agree with Solarmech... I did think it could possibly have been a prior Booker but as we have no way of interacting with the body we will never know :)

The Luteces expiriment failed when the thug sent by Comstock, repeatedly killed Booker as he arrived at the lighthouse, so despite their aversion to violence, it was scientifically necessary to kill the assassin in order for any Booker to succeed and reach Colombia

Not to disregard what you said or sound rude but where is the proof for this.
Given that someone else mentioned something about an assasin I'm curious where this idea comes from.
This theory does sound interesting and plausible though.
I personally think that it's a previous version of Booker that failed. The sign says "Don't Dissapoint Us", perhaps implying the Lutece's wrote the message. Booker has after all failed dozens of times before, each failure being a dissapointment

There is some proof. In the Lutece Lab in Columbia there is a notation on a picture of the Lighthouse that says something to the effect of "one obstacle left". The only thing that we see that could have been an obstacle to Booker would have been the Lighthouse Keeper. IIRC it's on the desk with a pic of the ouside of Booker's PI office along the with adress for it. sm

I definitely have to check this out! I never heard the keepr theory before...

It could be a version of Booker that failed, since our Booker is from a different world. Plus in the beginning you see Booker getting a nose bleed. So the person in the house was Booker but hadn't died yet until Booker from our time was on the boat ride to the lighthouse.

Like if this was on Facebook, lmao

On a serious note: many interesting explanations here, they could all be true.

There's also a note in the lighthouse from Comstock taking about "he's coming" so the keeper of the lighthouse theory to me makes the most sense when you take into account the lighthouse picture in the lutece's place.

Plus, in a way, it adds extra incentive for Booker. "failing these people has consequences". Just my opinion.

The lighthouse guard does seem more likely,although there are some unexplained things.For example why did the Luteces bother th kill him ? Booker would have taken care of a single guard.But then again maybe the guard had killed Booker in a few universes,so the Luteces had no option but to kill him.But then why cover his face ?
