A Mountain of a Molehill (Case #9) is the ninth fanmade case and is the fourth one in the Fairfield district by Tuttifruttichaitea.

Case Background

As of the events of the last case, the team comes to tell Gwendolyn Winters the identity of the Opera Phantom. Unfortunately, when Everett and the player reached there, she was being eaten alive by moles. Luckily, they were later able to find enough evidence to incriminate the killer as an audiovisual store owner going by the name of Keegan Stone

As soon as the team came to Keegan, he denied slaying Gwendolyn. But, once the evidence was shown, Keegan bowed to the player's detective instinct. He said that Gwendolyn had recently gotten an inheritance in the form of jewelry. Soon, Keegan's store was slowly running out of business, so he borrowed money from loan sharks, but didn't have enough to repay them back. Now, Keegan was curious on how he could make enough money to pay the loan sharks back, only for him to remember Gwendolyn's expensive jewelry. He hid part of a communicating earpiece in Gwendolyn's satchel, so he could stalk her every move. He soon calculated that she was going to a creepy forest to talk to the police. He was afraid that she had figured his motive out. He then went there and saw a molehill. He took a branch and incapacitated Gwendolyn. He then tied her up and let the moles eat her, but before he did this, he stole her jewelry. Now that Keegan was caught, he let the police handcuff him.

At court, Judge Montgomery said that loan sharks were obviously frauds and Keegan dealt with the wrong people. Keegan said that he regretted what he had done. Judge Montgomery quickly saw through Keegan's lie and sentenced him to life in jail. 

After Keegan's incarceration, the team found a gold mine of evidence involving the notorious serial killer of the district, the Opera Phantom. From the victim's colleague and urban legend hunter Trevor Sheridan, they were able to learn that the serial killer they were hunting down had a hate of gypsies. Trevor and the team presumed that someone important in the mass murderer's life had been taken away from him or her. 

Soon, the Chief came up to them and told them that the Opera was coming soon and he had tickets for the whole police department. The team knew that they had to catch the Opera Phantom immediately, or one more person could be killed.
