Back tot he Station, Chief Marquez informed the team that someone broke into the victim's Bar and injured beat cops who were there.

Back to Three Skulls, the team found a letter by the victim's fiancee about the wedding cancelation and a package with the gun inside with the label "Last one, R.R", or, Rosamarie Riverson. Miranda said that she wanted to cancel a wedding because of Troy's childish acts. She said that most of his time, besides his bar he spent with his gang and preparing the war on the streets, which make her cancel her wedding and whole relationship. Rosamarie said that Troy knew about her father's job of gun dealing, and he used her to get more weapons, which make her in a very bad position. She said that she wanted to stop doing that but he then decided to blackmail her, with all clues, the team needed to arrest her from gun dealing. When the team gets the last evidence they were ready to arrest gangster Ernest Wilson for the murder. He wanted to deny everything, but eventually, he confessed. He said that he killed Troy because he is a backstabber. He explained that went back in Highschool, where everything about the gangster life started, they were a good friend and they together started a gang White Skulls, but right behind his back, he opened another gang, Red Skulls. Lately, in a fight who ended in blood and handcuffs, Troy testified against all gangsters and from White and from Red Skulls.

During the trial, Abbi Ronald, beat cop, entered the courtroom and said that her partner, beat cop, Brock Anderson died from the wounds caused by Ernest. Taking a cop killing in his trial, Judge Dante sentenced him to life in prison with no chances of parole.

After the trial, Rose entered the station asking the player to help her and find her brother's bandana. Habib and the player searched his bedroom again and besides bandana (who was torn), but also the diary which (per Hannah) contained a detail about "The Rider". The team followed the lead from the diary and searched an Alley again. The player found a bloody license plate. The blood itself didn't have many results due to trash contamination, but the license plate revealed that it was from the motorcycle used in the serial murders and that it was owned by Andrew Brine. Andrew said that someone stole his motorcycle a long time ago. The team was not very convinced in that but with lack of evidence they could not do anything.
