Adding Fuel to The Fire is the fourth fanmade case in Nihilego Fanatic's first season, Paxerton, as well as the fourth one in the Cosgrove Outskirts district.

Case Background

Previously on Criminal Case, the dog show culminates and the chief informs you of a fire breaking out at Freeman Lane.

There, you find the dead body of convenient store clerk, William Teller, strangled to death and tied to the signpost.

You also find torn paper, which makes up a map. On the map is a message from Peggy Pascal, the storm chaser you met on your first investigation. Peggy just tells you that the victim usually frequents the library, prompting you and Jones to head over there.

At the library, more suspects are named. The librarian, Ulysses Peterson becomes a suspect after finding a bookmark containing a message from the victim.

The hypnotic blog also comes up during the first leg of the investigation after you find the victim's laptop with an email from psychology professor, Siegfried Freud with the link to the blog attached. Siegfried claims that it was only a joke.

At the end of Chapter 1, Siegfried comes to the police station, to inform you of a lead regarding the accursed blog.

Siegfried tells you that the secret to the blog hides in the nearby woods. There, you find a flash drive, containing some words from the blog, which belongs to tech support, Marty Oliver.

Marty just says that it's just random stuff that he found online and that William owns the flash drive and the victim gave it to him for some 'repairs', which a teen named Miley Wilson paid for.

During Chapter 3, Miley is also revealed to be the victim's daughter, which the rebellious teen already knows about. Miley is just sad that the victim abandoned her but doesn't mind since she has a better family now, declaring that she's going back home.

In the end, Peggy Pascal was incacerated for William Teller's murder.

Peggy admits her crime due to guilt. She reveals that the victim started the fire. She found the victim dousing the library foundation with gasoline. After the fire started, Peggy hits the victim with her flask, knocking him unconscious. She then drags the body to the nearby street, strangling him with a garden hose before tying him to the signpost.

Peggy is then shipped to Judge Kennedy, where she's sentenced to 15 years in jail with a chance of parole in 8 years.

Post-investigation, you confront Siegfried about the blog. Siegfried claims that he knows nothing and that all he knows is that the blog is on FriendNet, directing you to the burnt library. There, you find a microchip, containing vivid images, which Dominic deduces is used to hypnotize the killers. There's also fingerprints on it belonging to Marty. Marty says that he found it in the library before leaving, thinking it was useless.

Along with the microchip, you also find a locked safe, which contains a pink file regarding hypnosis. You give it back to the owner, Siegfried, who says that he teaches hypnosis at the university but claims that it's harmless.

On the other hand, the chief commands you to talk to Mindy Collins, a personal assistant who's asking for help. Mindy tells you that she's Zack Holden, the owner of FriendNet's assistant. Mindy laments the fact that someone is trying to break into the upcoming FriendNet seminar and asks you to check the streets for any clues. There, you find an ID card for the seminar, which (per Palmer) is revealed to be fake. You inform Mindy, who decides to up the security at the seminar.

Meanwhile, Jodie asks you to find her purse, which you easily find at the woods.

After all of the events, Chief Joust informs you that Mindy decided to hire you as security for the seminar
