—Case Teaser

A Fallen Star is a case featured in Criminal Case as the fifty-sixth case of the game. It is the second case of Berrini and the second case in Markle Metropolis.


The player, with Astrid Flores, went to the local awards ceremony, where they soon found hotshot actor Austyn Connor with his head bashed in on the red carpet. The team first suspected photographer Julia Cedar who the victim tried to get a restraining order against, movie director Ashton Dayton who couldn’t fire Austyn due to him being a excellent actor despite his sexism and fellow actor Cameron Lenard who was always in the victim’s shadow.

The duo then learn that the victim was spotted at a parking lot shortly before the murder. There, they found evidence to add blogger Kieran Roosevelt who received millions of views for succeeding at making the victim angry as well as actress Pamela Malandra who wanted to stop the victim from hurting women due to his sexism. They then learned that someone was vandalizing the victim’s limousine. After stopping Ashton from destroying clues, the duo found enough evidence to incarcerate Cameron for the murder.

After trying to deny the accusations, Cameron snapped and admitted to the murder because Austyn was going to destroy his career. When Astrid asked what he meant, he told the duo that Austyn had a tape of Cameron doing things of a sexual nature with teenagers and that he was gonna show it to the Loochester newspaper. Thinking he had no other choice but to murder, Cameron bashed his head in with the crystal trophy. Cameron was sentenced to 45 years in prison for the brutal murder of Austyn Connor and his abuse on minors by Judge Marrakchi.

Following the trial, Luke and the player went to find out more information about the crime of the century. They then searched the ceremony stage, where they found a bundle of checks made out to an anonymous number. Jordan could not find anything to track the one receiving the money but he found out that the one giving money was Ashton Dayton. The two detectives then went to find Ashton, who said that he had helped a mastermind with money for equipment in order to create the crime of the century. He then told them that his lips were sealed, which led Luke and the player to arrest him for assisting a criminal.

Meanwhile Astrid told the player that she saw the mysterious man they talked to in the aftermath of the previous case on the red carpet. They went to the red carpet where they found a wallet, which had an ID card on the man, Nikolai Rodionov. They got Jordan to look up more on him, who revealed that Nikolai was known for having a criminal record for being involved in robberies and thievery. They talked to him, where he explained that he had served his time and given up his past for a better one.

After all of these events, Chief Crosby told them that they would look more into the mastermind and keep an eye on Nikolai as the first of the Christmas carolling drifted from the windows.
