* JigsawPuzzlePlotJigsawPuzzlePlot: The story says from the get-go some details about Santiago's death, and spends the rest going back and forth in time trying to put together the available details. The narrator makes clear, though, that after so much time all witnesses are highly unreliable.

* ConsummationCounterfeit: Part of the plan to keep rich suitor Bayardo San Román from finding out that Ángela Vicario (who he had just married) is not a virgin. Unfortunately, the plan needed him to fall asleep drunk for Ángela to perform the simulated motions... and his high tolerance to alcohol became a SpannerInTheWorks, and the ensuing panic over the loss of honor became the trigger for the titular murder.

* ARealManIsAKiller: This is what the whole town supposedly thinks; the twins '''must''' kill Santiago to regain their honor. Prudencia, Pablo’s fiancée, even admits she wouldn’t have married him if he wouldn’t have killed Santiago.



* TheButcher: The twins are actual butchers. The relationship between their job and their murders is lampshaded upon. Interestingly, the other, less-murderous butchers, are somewhat personal and amiable towards their animals and do things like giving them human names and cannot bring themselves to sacrifice an animal they've interacted with (like drinking their milk).
