* Assuming that it was some form of law enforcement that informed Hugo's uncle Claude that his brother had died, and thus that he had to go collect his nephew, why did the people inspecting his death later ask Inspector Gustave if he had any other relatives? And even if they didn't happen to know themselves, why do they think a security officer at the train station would know that much about him?
