If my investigator is defeated, and I'm drawing a new one, and outfitting with starting equipmnent, but the starting equipment is in another player's possession already, what happens?

We played it that I would receive a random asset of the same type from the deck, FYI.

It's in the FAQ and the official answer is "Too Bad"

Here is the actual text from the Offical FAQ on FFG's website:

Q. What happens if a new investigator’s starting possessions are being used by another investigator?

A. When a player chooses a new investigator, he receives that investigator’s starting possessions from the decks, discard piles, or reserve. If the starting possessions are not in these places, such as if another investigator or a defeated investigator has them, the new investigator does not start with those possessions.

Since you don't draw a new investigator but choose one you can just pick one whose starting equipment is still available.
I usually choose an investigator that starts on the space the defeated one lays on. Especially if he/she had a lot of equipment. But it also gives that thematic feeling of passing the torch.
