Okay, evidently there's been some kind of confusion as to the nature of the Tall Man and John DeFoe, and who was killed by what.
So then, who killed Simone? Well, it wasn't in the hotel and it wasn't July 28th, so it wasn't the Tall Man. It wasn't John DeFoe, either, he wasn't anywhere near the area. I think it was the Order of Blessed Agonies, trying to get Trilby to the hotel and recruit him. For sadists/masochists, they're incredibly optimistic, but that's besides the point.
How did the red man time loop began? Answer, it didn't. It doesn't begin to make any sense, the red man can't have visited Jonathan when the time loop began, because the red man didn't even exist yet. Someone else must have begun the time loop. Except, of course, in Hollywood (and, evidently, freeware games), where time loops are evidently sentient entities capable of starting themselves.
