Does this new Walking Dead sneak peek confirm the identity of Negan’s victim?
A new Walking Dead sneak peek has teased the identity of Negan’s murder victim.
The new clip, which was unveiled at New York Comic Con, shows a scene that apparently takes place immediately after Negan violently butchers a member of Rick’s group.

Still here? Right then. The first thing we learn is that Rick survived the ordeal with Lucille at the end of season six. He is bloodied and visibly shocked by what has happened, but promises he will murder Negan in return one day in the future.
A menacing Negan is unafraid, however, and asks his “right hand man” Simon to hand him a weapon. He describes the importance of having a right hand man in his typical chilling amusement, and we get our first hint at his victim.
“You have one [a right hand man]? Maybe one of these fine people still breathing?” asks Negan.
Negan, a new hatchet attached to his belt and the bloodied Lucille in his hand, then drags Rick off to his caravan and offers no promises in regards to his wellbeing.
In the dying last seconds of the clip, the camera pans to a pool of the victim’s blood, with what looks like Maggie’s engagement ring sitting inside it.
Could this be the strongest hint we’ve had so far as to the identity of Negan’s victim?
