A Chalice of Crimson Blood is a case featured in Criminal Case as the one-hundred and fifty-eighth case of the game. It is the forty-third case of The Mystery and the fourth case in Memorial Avenue.

Plot

As the player and Diana headed to one of Memorial Avenue's historical temples to find out more information on suspected criminal mystic Ina Landry, they then looked into one of the sacrificial chambers to investigate. They hoped to find Ina, but instead they found the corpse of fashion designer Stephanie Pat, drained of blood on the altar. They then soon found clues to suspect the victim's husband and historian Mathis Pat, who they met three years ago. The heartbroken historian then directed the detectives to investigate the Pat family residence, soon finding clues to suspect Stephanie's fellow colleague, best friend and fashionista Chelsea Chapman. They also suspected animalistic student Shawn Barlow, who was supporting the Pat family by giving them a wolf cub for Mathis and Stephanie's son Ollie. Soon after, the team were informed by Chelsea that someone had broke into their fashion office.

They then headed to the fashionistas' office where they found no proof of what broke in except for Stephanie's bloodied hair pin, meaning the killer could've broke in. They also found clues to suspect war psychologist Cornelia Zimmerman and Major's cousin, army soldier Justin Redmoon in the murder. They then discovered that Chelsea had disagreed with the victim over their business profits and that Shawn made an insulting statue of the victim being eaten by a wolf after he found out that Stephanie had unintentionally mistreated the wolf pup, prompting him to take the wolf pup back and make the statue as a warning to other pet owners. Soon after, Mathis came to the station, his eyes watery as he gave Ollie to Diana, confessing that he couldn't handle taking care of Ollie all alone, saying he didn't deserve to live anymore without his wife. Soon after, Summer (who happened to be at the station) comforted Mathis and took him away to recover. Shortly after, Diana and the player were then able to collect enough evidence to arrest Cornelia as Stephanie's killer.

They then confronted the war psychologist about the murder and she initially denied the accusations against her. She then confessed that it had all fallen apart when she had attacked Stephanie in anger, saying that she didn't want to be charged with assault. She then explained that Stephanie had accidentally killed her pet dog months before in a car accident and that her dog's death had torn her apart. She then confessed that she had overheard Shawn speaking on the phone, while trying to adopt one of his wolf cubs to replace the empty hole in her life, that Stephanie had nearly killed one of his wolf cubs. Believing that Stephanie was out to murder innocent canines, she then waited for the moment to confront the fashion designer. She then confronted Stephanie when she was visiting the sacrificial chamber, knowing that they would be alone when they argued, Stephanie claiming that hurting the canines were accidents. In a fit of rage, Cornelia then struck Stephanie over the head, rendering the latter unconscious. When she saw Stephanie unconscious, the psychologist panicked, knowing that Stephanie would press charges and ruin her life. She then got a blood pump that she had in her medical kit and drained Stephanie of blood in hopes that it would be made out as a supernatural accident and that the police would never find her out. Diana then sent the psychologist to trial, where Judge Brighton gave Cornelia twenty-five years in prison for the premeditated murder. Soon after, they were informed that smoke had been spotted coming from the victim's office.

After learning of the smoke coming from the victim's office, Major and the player then headed to the victim's office and soon discovered a piece of burnt dynamite with the letters "MANIAC" on it under a pile of burnt desk wreckage. They then concluded that the P they were looking for was under the aliases of "the Pyromaniac" before the player collected a sample of the blood on the dynamite and sent it to Joshua. The lab assistant then told them that he had determined that the blood had traces of dirt and stone from the sacrificial chamber, meaning Ina or the Pyromaniac could've triggered the explosive off in Stephanie's office to scare them off. They then hurried back to the sacrificial chamber where they soon discovered a faded ticket stub, which they restored to see a symbol half torn off. Major then suggested that they consult his cousin, Justin, as the army soldier visited a lot of places in Memorial Avenue during his year back in the city. Justin then told the detectives that the ticket stub was for an re-enactment stage where they re-enacted various historical moments in history. Major then thanked his cousin before Justin treated the duo to a burger lunch.

Meanwhile, Summer told the player that she felt very sorry for Mathis after seeing him and his son in remnants following Stephanie's death. She then suggested that they investigate the Pat residence and get some gifts tailored for the father and his toddler son to help them both recover and create a better relationship between the grieving father and his son. Summer and the player then went back to the Pat residence where they found some baby magazines, which Summer noticed had Stephanie's circling and markings on them. After they discovered that Stephanie wanted to make Ollie some new clothes, they enlisted Chelsea's help in making the clothes before the fashionista mentioned that Stephanie had brought a gift for Ollie. This prompted Summer and the player to find a rattle locked in a drawer before the duo then gifted Mathis and Ollie their gifts and giving the father a bright hope for a future for himself and his son.

After all the events, Chief Tempest told the team that they had to head to the re-enactment stage and try to catch Ina Landry and the Pyromaniac in the act of their dastardly schemes.
