Vest - Maybe the vest did not belong to the victim, but to the person who killed the person. It could be, that the cousin is hiding out and could have been involved or knows something and is hiding in fear of the person who did this????

But to answer your wondering, Desepere, cotton left outdoors unprotected would be lucky to have survived as well as it did.  From the Wikipedia article on cotton: 
Quote
Cotton dries out, becomes hard and brittle and loses all elasticity at temperatures above 25?C (77?F). Extended exposure to light causes similar problems. A temperature range of 25 ?C (77 ?F) to 35 ?C (95?F) is the optimal range for mold development. At temperatures below 0?C (32 ?F), rotting of wet cotton stops.
  Temperatures in Northern Alberta can range from -46.5C to 35.5C, according to Environment Canada.  And insects will eat cotton as well.  Other animals may have used it as nesting material. 

Sorry if I sound all nerdy on ya, but I, oh, wait - I AM a nerd.  D'oh!
