A Killer and a Scholar is the thirty-fifth case of World Edition, as well as the second case to take place in Sahara Region.


The team came to Hassan II University to keep an eye on Khaled Zuberi, the notorious Doctor they chased throughout Africa. Isabelle partnered up with the player to roam the science faculty where they did find Zuberi, but also a student Attiq Bouasri dropped dead.

Both the Autopsy report and the forensic analysis confirmed that Attiq was murdered, though ingeniously by making him inhale the toxic Oleander smoke. The team soon found the plantation of Oleander within the university, and later comforted a cheerleeder Zahra Dauod who was depressed.

The team eventually incriminated footballer Younes Madaawi as the killer. Younes told the team that he had put a lot of heart in football all year and he was on the verge of failing his classes. He asked Attiq, who was a model student, for notes but Attiq refused to give him the notes. Feeling enraged, Younes used Oleander to murder Attiq. Judge Robertson was horrified at the motive and sentenced Younes to 25 years in prison.

Post trial, Chief Shoko told the player that she wanted to see them with Haider and Sumiko in her office. Koyanagi told the trio that they were going to be the ones that would be investigating who the mole is in our team. She told that she had obtained the security camera of the evidence room but she dropped it in the football field when she was there with Valentine Seymour. She wanted the team to retrieve the camera.

The team found the camera broken. After repairing it, Sumiko told the team that Nasir was the last person to enter the room, who had access to room as he was working as the team historian then. However, Sumiko said that the camera stopped working before she could see if Nasir was indeed the one who took the files out of the room.

Haider felt that the team should warn Zuberi that he cannot escape justice forever. In the science faculty, the team looked through his drawer ad found out that he had a shopping bag from Libya.

After Isabelle helped Sarem Al-Ebd find his statistics book, who asked Isabelle out after finding that Isabelle used to like statistics as well, the team decided to retrace Khaled Zuberi's steps and go to Libya.
