Yeah, I'm having this problem too.

Keep getting people talking about the murders in windhelm, at which point I decided to dole out some justice.

Unfortunately I can't figure out how to start the quest or get anyone to ask me how to start it. Starting to wonder if it's genuinely a quest or if it's literally just a subject of conversation.

1. It is a quest, and I have it.
2. I seem to be stuck in the middle of it for some reason.

the quest starts when an npc dies in the graveyard.

unfortunately that seems to happen completely at random, you could potentially see it your first time in town and it could take thousands of in game hours for it to happen

The quest started for me after I completed the "battle of whiterun" quest from stormcloak...I had just completerd the white phial as well....I walked through the cemetery and a group was crowded around a dead NPC, a guard spoke to me and the quest began.........the first time I played the quest I encountered a bug that wouldnt let me finish the quest......I loaded back before the quest and did it again making sure to do everything in the exact order said by the NPCs, and I completed the quest...

I'm also stuck in the middle.. it tells me to examine the crime scene but there's nothing there to examine.. there's a marker over the grave and that's it. Also says to follow up on the clues from Hjerim and get assistance from Jorleif. Jorleif isn't telling me jack squat and as for the clues, well.. I dunno. I'm wondering if I messed up somewhere along the line.. but whatever it is, I can't seem to get past it.
