A Bit of a Stretch is a case featured in Criminal Case, appearing as the seventh case of the game as well as the city of Clearford. It is also the seventh case to take place in Vocation City, a district based in Clearford.


Gale fully recovered from his allergic reaction and was ready to get back to work. Chief Winter informed Gale of the discoveries the player made during his absence. Just then, Gale received a phone call from August Eastman, who told the team to quickly head to the city sewers and find a hidden numberpad. The phone line got cut off and the team went to the sewers where after decoding the secret code, they wandered in a dark and creepy passageway. It lead to a hidden torture dungeon where they find an Indian woman's lifeless body.

The victim was an Atlantis bank teller named Anusha Gadhavi, who was pulled apart by a torture device called "The Rack". Evelyn was disgusted at this autopsy and told the team to keep an eye out for the victim's missing liver.

Throughout the investigation, the team met the victim's mother, Suhani Gadhavi, who thought her daughter was a lazy sod and completely worthless. When Suhani tried to disown her daughter, Anusha, she threatened to abuse her power at the bank to take her own mother's home away from her. The team soon interrogated Aryan Chaudhri, the manager of the Atlantis Bank, which is owned by Samantha Fleming. Aryan fell in love with Anusha but he soon discovered that it was lust. As soon as he broke up with her, Anusha reported him to the CEO of Atlantis, Samantha, which nearly got him fired. A jehovah's witness named Isaac Berkovich, despised the victim for being an atheist and attacking him physically and verbally for the way he lives his life. The team didn't expect to meet the businessman they've been hearing about: Edgardo Provenza. He reveals that Anusha worked for his business as well. He admitted to hitting on her and often met with her to "do something" for a raise. Finally, the leader of the homeless community, Maria Benedetti, blamed the victim for taking away everything she had which made her homeless. She explains that the only reason why is because she was Mexican. Towards the end of the investigation, the killer was revealed to be the manager of the Atlantis Bank, Aryan Chaudhri.

Aryan initially denied being the killer, accusing the team for making a false arrest. After all of the evidence was presented, Aryan admitted to killing Anusha. Aryan was glad to have done the honors after a few of The Ladri members volunteered to kill Anusha for jeopardizing the organization's master plan, revealing Aryan to be a member. The leader thought Aryan had the guts to pull off the job and decided to give him the task. So, Aryan kidnapped Anusha after their shifts were done and he took her to the hidden torture dungeon where most of The Ladri's victims are murdered. Loyal and stubborn, Aryan refused to say anything about his "savior".

In court, the Honorable King was disgusted to have to deal with so many horrific killers. Aryan stated that The Ladri's master plan will soon come to fruition as soon as Gale was out of the picture. He had a message to Gale from the leader themselves, "You can't hide". Gale didn't feel intimidated and let the trial proceed. The Honorable King sentenced Aryan to 35 years in prison with no possibility of parole.

Following the events of the trial, Angel reported to the team that Edgardo and Maria were having a fight at the marketplace. After breaking up the fight, the team discovered that the true reason why Edgardo broke up with Maria, while in Mexico, is that she was a member of The Ladri, revealing that the organization is a global criminal organization with its primary headquarters being in Vocation City. When the team went to arrest Maria, she held the team at gunpoint, asking to leave. Gale let Maria free and wanted to track her down later. Whilst all the action, the team helped Suhani with her trouble and learned that Maria lived in the synagogue after the victim made her homeless once they interrogated Isaac.

It soon transitioned into night as the team received a text message from August Eastman, claiming that The Ladri has claimed another victim at the Cindy Opera House in the Australian quadrant of the district. Once they arrive at the opera house, they find out August wasn't lying.
