That the the refers or belongs rather to fortune than to dead butcher himself or herself. From the dead butcher's fortune we can readily infer a possessive genitive. In no way can we say or write, "the dead butcher's the fortune." English as taught and learned since medieval times will not let us to.
On another approach we (those in the intermediate and advanced levels) can easily break it down into the fortune of the dead butcher. If we add another the to it.
How would one equate telling a beginning learner of English why and when a the follows an of to why and when it does not?
