Not sure if this actually a bug. I think the ghost are treated the same way as any other non-dwarf creature in terms of description screen.

Even if ghost is treated as intended here, being undead should be shown in description somehow. Wonder if Toady did something about it in newest release...

After additional checking I discovered that it is possible to check kill lists only for creature that are citizens of your fort, so it is more general bug (It is impossible to view kill list of creatures other than fort citizens) or a feature request.

Is it still possible to view the original creature's kill list in any way?
