It didn't take long for his new circumstances to tip him over the edge, if that's what happened. He must have been a ticking bomb.

You're assuming they'd have noticed anything in the first place, but it's by no means guaranteed. Like I said, it's difficult to see dark red things in dim light.

It's not really a question of "patterns". Remove the muscles from the thighs and you end up with a clean looking femur.

The colour red is very difficult to perceive under dim lighting conditions, so any blood or wounds might be overlooked, or mistaken for shadows or mud.

Indeed, that's not by accident, but it's not necessarily much of a "design" either. He might just have decided to "fillet" her thighs on a whim.
