A Date with Death (Case #6) is the sixth fanmade case as well as being the first one in the Verdant Meadows district and the sixth one in Bluehaven by CCFan32.

Case Background

Previously on Criminal Case, Chief Price proclaimed that a dangerous and venomous snake known as "The Black Viper" has been running loose in Verdant Meadows for a day and wants the player to catch it before any citizens of the district become victims of the viper. Chief Price wanted Junior Officer Michael Collins and the player to investigate and patrol Verdant Meadows and on the way, stop by the greenhouse, because a famous botanist named Bradley Lawson wants to help catch the viper.

The team decides to head to the greenhouse first so they can know where it was last seen, only to find a gardener named Ellen Chesterfield buried in a large plant pot being devoured by a peculiarly colossal venus flytrap. After witnessing the venus flytrap devour Ellen, the team didn't hesitate to send Ellen's half-eaten corpse off to Elizabeth for autopsy, where she verified that the venus flytrap is indeed the murder weapon. It took careful investigation to reveal the killer to be a member of the Flower Power gardening group named Lorraine Jackson.

Michael was disgusted by how Lorraine orchestrated the murder, in which she replied by stating that Ellen deserved such a grim fate. Lorraine made it clear that Ellen was a promiscuous woman who dated a lot of men throughout her life and then dumped them for other men because she wanted sexual pleasure from them. As Lorraine and Ellen were in Kindergarten together, Lorraine got jealous throughout her school life but was soon furious when Ellen dated Lorraine's older brother and broke his heart, like all the other men Ellen dated. Lorraine's brother contemplated suicide after the break-up but she managed to stop him before he could proceed. Lorraine then filed a lawsuit against Ellen but it got turned down. Because of this, Lorraine wanted revenge for what Ellen did to her brother. Michael and the player shipped Lorraine off to court.

Lorraine explained to the Honorable Kingsley that if the lawsuit wasn't turned down, Ellen would have still been alive. Judge Kingsley nurtured a distaste for people to murder others using Mother Nature and especially found it abhorrent when Lorraine fed Ellen to the venus flytrap. Lorraine stated that it was a very simple task to do. According to her, Lorraine was at the greenhouse when Ellen was there. Since the two were all alone there, Lorraine threw a plant pot at the back of Ellen's head to incapacitate her. Lorraine took one of the botanist's giant plant pots (who wanted to make another giant venus flytrap) and buried Ellen inside it. Once there, Lorraine pushed the pot into the venus flytrap's path and witnessed the murder first hand and enjoyed the sight, knowing that Ellen was having a date with death. Kingsley stopped Lorraine and handed down a 30-year jail sentence with a parole possibility of 25 years.

Chief Price wanted the team to detain the Black Viper snake before it can harm anyone. After acquiring the help of Bradley Lawson, the team discovers that the snake was intentionally released by someone as evidence by a broken padlock which belonged to the snake's cage. Towards the climax of this case, Roman informs the team that the station got a package with a photo on it, depicting Chief Price tied up to a chair and gagged.
