—Case Teaser

A Twisted Fate is a case featured in Criminal Case as the twenty-ninth case of Stonemoor and the eighty-ninth overall. It is featured as the fifth case set in Green Haven.


April and the player stood in the precinct and discussed the mastermind behind the feuding communities, before Emilio reported that they were operating from a banquet hall in the German corner of Green Haven. With no time to waste, Chief Flanagan instructed April and the player to head to the banquet hall, where they found the body of sausage eating champion Gunther Schnee, twisted into the shape of a pretzel. They then suspected Greek businessman Nikolas Matthias, German chef Jonathon Fritz and German musician Noah O’Knight. Soon after, they learned from Todrick that a strange figure had fled from the banquet hall to a German folk bar.

Soon after, they found clues to suspect a local binge-drinker Arnold Dreschner, as well the leader of the German community and famed Beerfest organizer Gretl Nagel. Soon after, they found out that the victim's relationship with Noah had soured due to the victim believing he was much more German than Noah was. Soon after, they learned of a fight in the folk bar due to a drunken Arnold hitting on an angry Valentina. Soon after, the detectives found out that Gunther had wanted to take over the German community, which angered Gretl. However in the end, in a twist of events, the team incriminated Nikolas as Gunther's killer.

The detectives confronted Nikolas about the devious murder, and the businessman initially denied the accusation until he cracked to confess that Gunther was only the beginning. He then told them that he was sent a video of the German community burning a Greek flag as an act against the Greek community. Angered by the defiant act, Nikolas went to the banquet hall, where he was sure Gunther was the one responsible for recording the video and burning a piece of Greek heritage. When he confronted the sausage eating champion, Gunther denied the accusations of burning the Greek flag, which angered Nikolas and, in a fit of rage, forced him to strangle Gunther and snap his body into a pretzel. Judge South then sentenced the businessman to 40 years in prison for the murder. Soon after, Valentina told them that the district town square had been lit aflame.

With the district town square on fire and the flames spreading through Green Haven, the team decided that they had to find out the mastermind's true plans and see if they were behind Gunther's murder and the burning of the town square. The player and Spencer soon returned to the banquet hall where they found a locked journal. They then unlocked it and sent it to Valerie, who revealed that the notebook belonged to the mastermind. The book revealed that the murder of Gunther Schnee was to cause unrest, just like what the mastermind did with accusing the Irish of defacing the French flag and accusing the Greek of being behind the the murder of Esteban Hernandez.

They then learned per the notebook that the mastermind had hid some "supplies" at the victim's house. They investigated the victim's house, where they found an empty gasoline can and a burnt lighter. As the can and lighter was severely burnt, Fleur was unable to collect any DNA evidence from the items, however, Fleur could confirm that it was the items used to light the fire, meaning the mastermind was behind the burning of the town square and the spreading of the flames afterwards. Meanwhile, April told the player that she had changed her mind about her boyfriend's proposal for marriage. She then investigated the folk bar with the player as she knew that her boyfriend liked spending time there. They then found Leo's planner and discovered that he was currently at work. April then thanked the player for her help before going to find Leo at work.

As Green Haven burned and the numerous firefighters of the city fought to extinguish the flames, Chief Flanagan told them that they would have to track down the mastermind behind it all. Spencer then thought over the communities and then realized that the British community was the only one unharmed by the mastermind's sabotages, which could mean that the mastermind was hiding out in the British corner of Green Haven. Soon after April came, covered in soot stains, explaining that she had found her house in the British community corner on fire. After Spencer asked her what scared her, April told him that she had discovered a body, without their jaw, amongst the flames of her home.
