—Case Teaser

A Race to Kill is a case featured in Criminal Case as the twentieth case of the season. It is featured as the second case set in the Amore Square district of Aurelia.


The team ventured on through the district as Lydia and the player were called to the local coliseum that was based off the Roman Coliseum in Rome where the detectives found tour guide Annabel Bianchi pulverized into a bloody mass. After careful autopsy, Dom registered the weapon as a chariot after they found proof that the victim was run over repeatedly. They then went to suspect chariot rider Enzo Testa, family heir Alessandra Ferrari and mobster Salvador de Angelis. Soon after they were informed by Cal that security footage saw someone fleeing the scene, they searched the entrance and the horse stables to suspect Vito’s uncle Vincent Panzica and mobster head Alphonso Ferrari. Later the detectives had to stop Vincent and Alessandra from fighting at the coliseum’s entrance before they went to arrest chariot rider Enzo Testa.

Enzo confessed to killing Annabel with a chariot but explained he had no choice. He further explained that Annabel started to believe they were in love and started obsessing over him, following him home and throwing herself on him. Enzo confessed that it got so bad that Annabel would even start hitting him when he refused to kiss her. Realizing that the only way to get rid of Annabel was to kill her, he asked for them to meet at the coliseum where he proceeded to run her over with a chariot and kill her. He was sentenced to 20 years in prison by Judge Rodriguez.

In the aftermath, the player and Silvano had to stop Alphonso and Valentino from having a brawl in the horse stables. Soon, the duo later found Alphonso's abandoned briefcase with a scroll hidden inside it. The scroll soon was revealed to detail a family tree of the Ferrari family, with one of the faces crossed out. They went to Alessandra, who explained that her relative had died in a bloody war that happened over forty years ago. She then told them that both Alphonso and Vittorio Panzica were embittered enemies following that war.

After Lydia asked for help arranging a date with Cal, the team ventured on to look more into the war between the two families.
