—Case Teaser

A Leap of Faith is a case featured in Criminal Case as the tenth case of Stonemoor and the seventieth overall. It is featured as the fourth case set in Rose Petal Avenue.


After an elated Alexandre Pierre told the player of what had happened between him and Maria after they had helped him in the previous case, Chief Flanagan told the player that a woman's scream had led someone to discover a body in the Pierre Corner neighbourhood. Spencer and the player then hurried to Pierre Street, where they found the broken body of Swan River socialite Lizzy Canabaker, who had made her plunge from a shattered window. Alexandre then told them that Lizzy died from the shock of having her spine broken in three places. They then suspected the owner of the cabaret where the victim fell from Francisco Delacroix, as well professional fighter Tyson Malone and local cyclist Kiki Chamberlain.

They then were informed by consultant Valentina Panzica that Lizzy had a secret life, calling herself the "Red Dahlia". They then discovered that the victim had ran a secret life as a dominatrix and S&M mistress. This led the detectives to investigate the victim's home and discover clues to suspect investigative journalist Molly Hooper and politics student Marvin Harrison. Soon after, Molly told them that she had discovered that the victim knew about "The Crimson Rose" and was planning to join forces with the serial killer. Molly then revealed that she had found out that Lizzy would help the serial killer remove the bad people in the district, before they found enough evidence to arrest Francisco for the crime.

When confronted, Francisco confessed, saying it's what she deserved for denying him of his right. When asked what he meant, Francisco spoke about how he was infatuated by Lizzy, saying that she was beautiful and perfect. Francisco recounted how he started fantasizing about her and told her to meet him in the cabaret bedroom. Francisco then tried to force himself on her, prompting Lizzy to reject his advances. He then started insisting that it was his right to have her and when she rejected him, he grew furious and pushed her, causing her to fall through the window and to her death below. Suddenly, as the pair went to handcuff him, the lights went out and a harrowing scream was heard. When the lights turned on, Francisco was seen clutching his bloody neck before falling to the ground, a rose tucked in his pocket.

In the aftermath of Francisco's death, Alexandre told the team that he was sitting along the cabaret street when he found a threat letter nailed to the bench. After the player and April searched the street, they found the threat and sent it to Valerie. Valerie confirmed that the letter was a threat to Alexandre from the Crimson Rose, revealing that the serial killer planned to target Alexandre. Dustin then arranged protection for Alexandre.

Meanwhile, Spencer and the player searched the cabaret bedroom where they found keys to Lizzy's home, prompting them to head back there. After searching Lizzy's home, they discovered a map of the city with the Rose Petal park circled, labelled "the hideout". Believing that the serial killer had a hideout in the park, the team headed there to find it and confront the serial killer.
