After casting this spell, you know intuitively where a corpse rests, provided that it is within the range of the spell. If the corpse has been disintegrated or similarly destroyed, the spell has no effect. The spell has no limit in terms of how long it has been since the target creature died. In order to cast the spell, you must know the entire name of the deceased individual and state it while casting the spell. You know and can describe the precise direction toward the corpse as described by a straight line (for example, “the corpse of Gudwin lies 783 feet north by northwest from this spot”).

You also get a similar, constant “reading” as you move while the spell’s duration persists.
