—Case Teaser

Beauty is Futile is a case featured in Criminal Case: City of Trevino as the third case of the game. It is the third one to take place in the San Roberto district of Trevino.

Plot

The team went to the annual Beauty Contest to celebrate the impressive debut of the player. After the contest, Jefferson and the player found the dead body of the contest’s winner Hayley Whitehood. Brittney deduced that the victim died of severe head trauma and asked the team to look for shattered glass.

The duo suspected the victim’s bodyguard and the victim’s boyfriend, Ontario Hughes and Barnaby Stone, respectively, as well as beauty contestant Viviana de la Cruz. After all the events, the victim’s friend, Paula Jeong was reported to have accused Ontario of improperly guarding the victim, making her a suspect. The contest’s organizer Mary Chapman was subsequently flagged as a suspect.

A broken bottle of champagne was then registered as the murder weapon per Nellie’s analysis. Later, Jefferson and the player managed to prevent a drunk Barnaby from committing suicide by shooting himself due to grief. Eventually, they incriminated Viviana for Hayley’s murder.

Viviana denied involvement before Jefferson and the player showed all the evidence. She claimed that the victim reported her of cheating. When asked how she cheated, she bribed the contest’s organizer. The victim witnessed that and wanted to expose that. Fearing that would be exposed, she took a champagne bottle and thrown it to the victim multiple times until the victim died. Judge Pennington sentenced Viviana to 35 years in jail.

Post-investigation, Jefferson and the player wondered how Viviana received much money so they talked to her, who said that a certain account sent her much amount of money via transfer. The duo then found her laptop, revealing (per Aaron) that the account Dolores Johnson had transferred amount of money to her with the caption reading “Bribe Mary. No Truth”. However, Dolores was known to have been disappeared for three months. Despite that, it proved that Mary accepted the money so that the duo arrested her for good.

Meanwhile, Mayor Edward Westfield, who congratulated the player for their awesome debut, needed the player’s help for finding his speech sheet. Camila and the player found the sheet, which (per Philippe) indicated that the mayor was going to hold a meeting with the U.S. president Randall Tomlinson to discuss the previous financial crisis in Trevino. To ensure the security, the mayor asked the team to patrol the Trevino Convention and Exhibition Center during the meeting as the backup.

After all the events, the team deduced that Truth No More was a mastermind in the district, which was behind of Tom’s murder and the bribery. Chief McKinney agreed to patrol the meeting, while investigating Dolores Johnson's disappearance and her connections with Truth No More.
