And So it Begins is the first case in Criminal Case and the first case of Warrenville. It takes place in Downtown, appearing as the first case of the district.


The player, a new recruit of the Warrenville Police Department, is introduced to their Chief Annabel Armstrong, and one of their partners, Josiah Roman. Unfortunately introductions are cut short as another officer by the name of Luke Garvey barged in saying there was a murder in the middle of the district. Annabel sent the player and Josiah to investigate, and they found a man lying on the sidewalk, with a stab wound to the heart. The ID they found on the body confirmed the man was Wyatt Cross, who was an assistant manager at the local grocery store.

Partway through the investigation, Luke informed the player and Josiah that the victim was spotted at the scene of a robbery. As it went on, they ended up finding one of their suspects, Jasper Bowman, vandalizing the store in retaliation towards previous failed attempts for employment. After collecting enough evidence, they were able to identify manager Amber Goodwin as Wyatt's killer.

After being presented with the evidence they collected, Amber eventually gave in and confessed. She said she was madly in love with the victim, and the victim kept refusing her even when his job was on the line. But Amber snapped when she heard the victim was going to report her himself to the board for her misconduct. Because of this, she stabbed Wyatt in the heart with a kitchen knife. Judge Blackwell decided to sentence Amber to life in prison for the murder on top of her behavior.

Afterwards, the team was approached by Bentley Proctor, who had an urgent matter to attend to. He informed the player and Sonia Watson, that one of his clients reported a painting they bought from him was forged. After finding it and analyzing it, they determined it was the work of The Deadly Triangle. Chief Armstrong went into detail on the Triangle, a group of three criminals who have been causing havoc around the district. They are comprised of an arsonist, an art forger, and a thief said to have links to the black market.

Once they finished setting things right with the store the victim worked at, Patrolman Garvey came with news that the Triangle set fire to one of the factories by the edge of the Downtown district.
