A Snob Case is the first fanmade case in PetersCorporal's second city, Blue Coasts, as well as the first one in the Evergreen Tops district.

Case Background

After arriving in Blue Coasts, the player was immediately assigned to a murder investigation with their day shift partner, Jerry Bryar. The victim was one of the two co-owners of the country and sports club "Hilton & Hilton Club", Mark Hilton. Jerry and the district commander, Everett Sanderson, had a quarrel after the latter tried to take over the investigation. He gave the player and Jerry the rest of the day to solve the case and said that if they couldn't do it, they'd be demoted to traffic control.

During the case, the team saw that one of the suspects (Clive Goldman) had tried to give part of Mark's money to Carmela Johnson's films production company, Columbia-Joy Studios. Clive turned out to be Mark's killer and after confessing, it was discovered that somebody had told him to kill Mark Hilton. He didn't say who it was and why they wanted him dead, and Peggy Jasmine sentenced him to 50 years in jail with no parole. Everett Sanderson had to admit that even though the mastermind behind the murder hadn't been discovered, he could not demote the player and Jerry.

After the trial, which took place the morning after Clive's arrest, George Nearnight told Jerry about the player's investigation on Barbara's ancestor which was now one of the team's priorities. The problem was that the murder that took place in 1918 had also taken place only three years after Blue Coasts' fundation in 1915, so there was practically no information about those days' crimes. Besides, Chief Nearnight said that even though Gary Perkins had said in May that he was already in Blue Coasts, in those months nobody with the name "Gary Perkins" had entered the city, meaning that he was either an illegal immigrant or that he was using a fake name.

In his prison cell, Clive Goldman confessed that he was part of a secret society called MAFIA. To know if someone was part of the society, members had to say "it never rains but it pours" and a MAFIA member would reply "of course it does, my very dear fellow". However, MAFIA members only used this sentence when they really needed to know if someone was part of the organization, not just out of curiosity. Clive said that someone had approached him and after checking he was part of MAFIA with that sentence, they gave him a note that said "Kill Mark Hilton". The order was on a speeding ticket issued to Montgomery Appleton. However, he did not reply to the MAFIA password the way a true member would have, meaning that he was not part of the secret society and that he hadn't ordered the hit on Mark. Anyway, he did react suspiciously to the mention of Thomas Ravens' name. Later, Montgomery left at the club a device that had been crafted by Thomas.

With that, the player and Jerry asked Thomas what his ties to Montgomery were. He said that he had no idea about Montgomery having stolen his device and explained that about two years before he had hacked Appleton Light Industries and saw that Montgomery was avoiding taxes. He publicly exposed him and joined Chief Nearnight's team. Shortly after that, he saw that Montgomery was trying to hack the Chief's HQ but Thomas kept it under control.

The player also had to investigate the break-in in the club that Clive had mentioned the previous day, with James Robert's help. The criminal hadn't stolen anything so James presumed they had been looking for something they didn't find. They looked for fingerprints in a safe and they turned out to be Gary Perkins' ones. This meant that we was actually in Blue Coasts and that he had tried to steal something from Mark's club. The team told the victim's widow, Vaninna Ballaffinte, to show them the safe's contents but she refused to do it and said that the Hilton & Hilton Club was moving away because she needed to let go of her dead husband. A few hours later, Thomas discovered that Vaninna had emptied the old club and sent all of it via mail to hundreds of different adresses. This meant that she was not going to open a new Hilton & Hilton Club but was in fact trying to hide something, most probably that "something" that she didn't want to show to James which was also the "something" Gary Perkins had been looking for.
