—Case Teaser

An Unearthly Murder! is a case featured in Criminal Case as the sixty-ninth case of the game. It is the fifteenth case of Berrini and the third case in Radar Hill.


After the events of the previous case, the player and Astrid headed to the battlefield and discovered Rebecca Foremen's head on the battleground. Soon after, captain Suzanna Jones came to the team's aid and told them that the victim owned a junkyard. They looked around the junkyard and found leads to add the victim's grandfather, Ian Hartnell as well as German scientist Hans Schmidt who was last seen back in Wandering Woods. While they looked over the case in the precinct, they were interrupted by the headmistress of Kole Highschool.

The team then talked to the headmistress, Oswald Kole and investigated her high school where they found a lead to add show runner Sydney Jackson to the suspects. However both Oswald and Sydney claimed not to know the victim. Soon the detectives were recapping the case when something was thrown into the office, that was revealed to be the murder weapon. They sent the murder weapon to the lab and carried on with the investigation until they had everything that they needed to arrest the killer, who turned out to be Ian Hartnell.

The team confronted Ian about murdering his grandchild, but he denied the accusations. However he admitted to the murder after the detectives presented the evidence. He told the team that Rebecca was dating someone and he was scared that she was telling him that they were part of the brainwashing scheme. When Astrid demanded that he tell them the true leader of the brainwashing, he refused. He then said how he threatened her to stay quiet about it while he had the murder weapon in his hand. When Rebecca said she wasn't, the duo had hugged before Ian accidentally pulled the trigger, blasting Rebecca's body to dust. Before the duo could arrest him, Ian put a gun to his head and repeated that he felt guilt for what he did. He then shot himself in the head and fell to the floor, lifeless.

The team went to talk to Oswald Kole once again as she had reported the robbery of the 3D printer. The team agreed to help and found the 3D printer in bits. They put it back together and looked for fingerprints. Upon finding them, they sent them to Jordan, who found out that the robber was Suzanna. When they questioned her about why she stole it, she said that she thought that the murder weapon would be a faster, stronger way to finish the war. The police were horrified by this and they arrested her on the spot.

The team went to tell the chief about what they planned to do next. When he agreed to the plans, they went ahead to look at the battlefield. They found a bag and they found a checklist of names to brainwash inside it. They sent it to Jordan who revealed to a scared Edward that his father, mother, brother, sister as well as his brother-in-law were on the list. They went to inform Edward's father about what was going on but he dismissed any help from the team, believing their rumours of the brainwashing to be a trick. However the rest of Edward's family willingly went with the police. The police then searched the junkyard and found a book about brainwashing. They looked through it to find out that it was a gift to Hans. They went to talk to him but he refused to tell them anything and forced them out. The team were back at square one when they went back to the station.

At the end of the case, the team received an invitation to the wedding of Jack Chapman and Julia Cedar that would be happening the following weekend.
