Case Background

The player visits the Campbell City Police Department for the first time. Chief Ronald Harrison is pleased to have the player in his team, proudly welcoming the player to the Campbell City Police Force right after introducing himself. He then confirmed that Detective Everett Winston and Junior Officer Reena Hollingsworth were assigned to be the player's partners in their homicide investigations. As Reena was on vacation, the Chief introduced Everett to the player. He was excited to be showing the player around in his hometown. Ronald then suggested Everett to showing the newest member of the team Big Rock. Everett did just this. While driving, they see an alley with a man tied up, blood rapidly gushing from his throat.

The victim was a Big Rock local named Mortimer Morrison, who was found tied up to an alley wall, blood gushing from his throat. Throughout the case, Everett introduced the player to certain forensic skills such as repairing, hacking, matching, revealing, etc. Thanks to this, the team was able to apprehend Mortimer's killer who was later revealed to be a homeless man named Asher North.

Asher admitted to grand homicide after Everett reviewed the evidence, even showing the murder weapon. The Morrison family and the North family had a family feud. The Morrisons stole money from the North family, causing the Norths to be poor. Asher was the last North alive and needed to kill a Morrison for his vendetta. Asher decided to spy on Mr. Morrison, drugged his usual swig of champagne, and tied him up. Although, in Mortimer's final moments, Mortimer said he would give 50% of his money, Asher didn't care, and finally slashed the victim up with a corkscrew. Everett was shocked at what Asher did as Mortimer could have gone in jail instead. Everett and the player then send Asher to Honorable Montgomery.

In court, Asher told Honorable Montgomery that if the Morrisons weren't just thieves and murderers, his goal of all of them dead would not exist. The Honorable Montgomery said although he had found the Morrisons to be quite rude, what Asher did was take it too far. Asher revealed to Honorable Montgomery what he had said to the team. Judge Montgomery was horrified by how the murder was orchestrated. He was ashamed of Asher and handed down a lifetime jail sentence with no parole possibility.

Meanwhile, Everett and the player went to the general store and found a notebook belonging to Nerissa Morrison that revealed that a serial killer named "The Man Behind the Mask" who had not killed anyone for 19 years was rising back up again. Everett was shocked and wanted to speak with the player in Chief Harrison's office about the topic. Once they were there, Everett explained the whole story to the player.

When Everett was 9 years of age, he moved to the rockier parts of town with his parents. One night, Everett came home to find his father skinned, with an eye missing. Everett went straight to the police station, which was not as technically advanced as now, as they didn't have a profiler or fingerprinting. At the time, the judge's father, Chester Montgomery was a detective so he noted everything what Everett said. He described the horrifying way the murder was orchestrated, from the lack of skin, to the missing eye. It was revealed by Inspector Montgomery that Everett's father was killed by the hands of "The Man Behind the Mask".

Towards the end of the case, Everett and the player went to the general store to see if there is anything of interest. The team found a spray paint can, extracted a fingerprint and examined it, only to find out that a member of the Soul Stealers is the owner of the general store, Trevor Delacroix. Once all the tasks had been completed, the team had received a phone call to go the schoolhouse, only to find a dead body in the premises.
