—Case Teaser

Bathing in Red is a case featured in Criminal Case as the sixty-first case of the game. It is the seventh case of Berrini and the first case in Wandering Woods.


After the events of the last case, the team arrived in Wandering Woods to help out with the recent natural disasters that tarnished the district. Soon Astrid and the player decided to check out a science club after they heard about Wilford Nobel, a famous scientist. They headed to the scientist's house only to find his boiled cadaver in the bathtub. They went to work on the clues and questioned German scientist Hans Schmidt, the victim's sister Linnea Nobel and young lady Molly Hogs. Later on, the team were recapping over the investigation when a police officer came in saying that a bakery was on fire.

The team headed to the burning bakery and soon talked to bakery owner Jamie Littlewood who claimed that he saw someone running away into the underground, the duo followed this lead and found out that a hidden room was built under the city. They then found clues to question Liam Wonka. After getting more information, they were interrupted by Edward who claimed that he found some information on Hans Schmidt that they would want to hear. After Edward told them, they questioned Hans about how the victim took Hans's work as his own. Afterwards, they went and searched the grand hearing hall once again to find leads and interrogate suspects. They then got word that people were raiding the underground room to take photos. In the end, they arrested Jamie Littlewood for the murder of Wilford Nobel.

He denied the police's findings at first but then he admitted to the murder. He confirmed that he murdered Wilford because the victim tried to blackmail him with his family's life if he didn't burn down his bakery for a "group" that needed it for animal testing. He then cried and admitted that he snapped at Wilford when the victim murdered Jamie's son after he burned his bakery down. Jamie then went to his bedroom where he was about to have a bath and knocked him out. He then dumped Wilford into the bathtub and made sure to add some hot coals to the bath the victim had set and watched him boil while alive. Disgusted, Astrid sent him to trial where Judge Marrakchi scolded Jamie that murder wasn't allowed regardless of blackmail and murder. As she still felt sorry for him, she then sentenced Jamie Littlewood to 20 years in prison.

After the team arrested Jamie Littlewood, the detectives chose to look into the claims of the group that Jamie mentioned. They went to the grand hearing room and found a court order for animals, they looked into it and found out that someone called Ronald Wisdom has been looking into a group that wanted animals for something. They brought him in and questioned him about what he found. He was a bit scared to share any information but he told the team to look inside Wilford’s home again. They did so and found some plans, which they sent to Jordan and later learned that it was for animal cages. When they heard this, they informed the chief, who told the team to wait to get any more information as there wasn't any proof that it was real.

They also got word that Liam Wonka wanted help with something. So they went to see Liam, who said that he lost a very important possession. Liam told them what it was and they had a look at the underground room, where they found a golden locket and returned to a thankful Liam.

Later on, the team recapped over the case’s events, including the worrying development about animal cages being used for something. Soon the team swore to keep an eye out for the animal trafficking before it was too late.
