It's a homework question, but I just have no idea about it ...

Let X_{1} ,... , X_{n} be random variables according to a distribution having joint density f(x_{1}-\theta ,...,x_{n}-\theta ),where \theta \in R is a location parameter. Assume that there exists a complete sufficient statistics S(X_{1} ,... , X_{n} ) for theta. Prove that the Pitman estimator

\delta^{*}(X_{1},...,X_{n})=\frac{\int _{R}\theta f(X_{1}-\theta ,...,X_{n}-\theta) d\theta }{\int _{R} f(X_{1}-\theta ,...,X_{n}-\theta) d\theta }

is itself complete sufficient.
