The Colonel did leave the Village, if only in body and not mind. So really the Colonel died in the Village, his mind wrongly housed in the body of Seltzman. And the effect on the outside world? Well obviously his death would have to be explained to the department for which the Colonel worked. And was he married? If he was, what would they tell his widow? But it doesn't quite end there, because out there, somewhere, is the Colonel who to all intents and purposes is alive and well, even if he's not in his right mind!
