A Gamble for Life (Case #26) is the twenty-sixth fanmade case and is the second case in the Cherrywood Hills district by Tuttifruttichaitea.

Case Background

An anonymous call revealed that someone was found hanged at an estate, prompting yet another murder investigation. The player went with Everett Winston and found out that the victim this time around was Simon Barrows, an agent suspected in the previous case. Dale Hopkins' autopsy revealed that he was first bashed on the head with a vase, in which he was gagged to stop him from screaming. He then was hanged. The murderer was eventually revealed to be Katy Flemings, a make-up artist.

Katy immediately confessed to her sin. She said that her older sister, Selene Flemings was the wife of the victim. One day, Simon spent all of Selene's money on gambling. Selene, who had no money left, divorced him. Penniless, she hanged herself. Katy loathed Simon all her life for this and felt that he had to die. She hanged him to represent the fact that he had caused Selene's suicide. Everett then shipped her off to court.

Judge Wallace Montgomery was shocked at the motive. However, he did add that murder was the worst thing to do to Simon. Katy could have exposed him to the press, or talked to Simon. Instead, she lashed out and hanged him. He then decided that 20 years of jail with mandatory psychological meetings was the right sentence for the now-disgraced make-up artist.

Post-investigation, a digital notebook was found at the Seven Seas Casino. There, reality television star Vivian Lloyd ambushed Everett and the player, holding a taser. She, hypnotized, said that "they" needed the digital notebook. Christopher Sperazzo's analysis showed that "they" meant Pixel Pictures, which not only was a major film studio, but also a firm that controlled the work of many of the stars in Cherrywood. However, it was noted that Pixel Pictures had a meeting at a hookah lounge. There, a gun with the fingerprints of Riley Cyprus, controversial pop star, was found. Everett and the player had to tail her down to arrest her for not having a gun license.
