A Watery Grave is the nineteenth case in Starlight Shores and the fourth one situated in the La Mirada district.


Previously, the team gathered information that Isaac Holmes was having a meeting with a member of Omega Labs by lake Violet. While listening to the meeting, Linda and the player noticed a body in the lake, face down. After investigating the scene, they were able to determine it was a murder and the cause of death was drowning.

During chapter 1, Isaac Holmes, Craig Winters (a scuba diver) and Lucy Davidson (head of Omega Labs) became suspects. At the end of the chapter, Alice informed the player that a huge protest had broken out at the lake.

It was discovered that this protest had broken out due to William Westerfield and his factories polluting lake Violet. After calming the protest down, the team spoke to the main protester Lily Kelly and William about Abigail's murder. It was also revealed that Craig was apart of an illegal drug operation around the shores of lake Violet. At the end of the chapter, it was revealed William needed to speak to the player.

William decreed that he was to run for the position of Deputy Mayor of Starlight Shores as a way to help those in need and as an apology for the pollution of lake Violet. In the end, Craig Winters was discovered to be the killer.

Once confronted, he confessed immediately saying there was no point in covering up the murder anymore. He said Abigail had seen him trading drugs while she was on a hike and was the one who had taken the photograph. Knowing she had evidence, Craig followed her and knocked her out with a pair of goggles. He then proceeded to leave her in the lake, face down and waited until she drowned. He then destroyed the photograph.

At court, Judge Donovan found his lack or remorse worrying and decided to sentence him to twenty years in jail for the murder of Abigail Keys.

In the AI, Isaac and the player decided to do some more investigating into Omega Labs by looking at their meeting place while Linda and the player went to calm down the protests. William also requested to speak to the player and Alice about his campaign to become Deputy Mayor. While at city hall, Roy Ketcher tried flirting with Alice, annoying her.

After looking at the meeting place, the player found a messaging system between Omega Labs scientists which could possibly help uncover their plan. Upon sending the messaging system to Alice, she said she couldn't get much off the messaging system as it had been heavily water-damaged, but she was able to get one message. "Arrive at the Christmas celebrations and eliminate the target."

At the end of the case, Chief Ramone told everyone to get ready to attend the Christmas celebration taking place in La Mirada's centre.
