—Case Teaser

Becoming Sitting Ducks is a case featured in Criminal Case as the fiftieth case of the game. It is the fiftieth case of Rosenoque and also the fourth case in Ivory Peaks.


Following the riots, Leigh and the player went out to look for more criminals that escaped the prison along Ivory Peaks River, only to find the cadaver of Danica Quincy, slashed to death. The team then suspected socialite Fiona Fontaine, escaped convict Daphnée Fontaine and convict on parole Mathilda Alyssa before they found out that the victim was having an affair. Jordan soon tracked the trace of the affair to Memorial Avenue's architect, Tristan Flanders. They also interrogated entertainer Connor Fredbear before the detectives regrouped with Summer, who talked over the case with them before she suddenly collapsed. Major stayed with his girlfriend in the hospital after they had learned she had been severely poisoned. Despite Summer's poisoning, the team went forward to arrest Danica's killer, who turned out to be Fiona.

Fiona explained that she did it because she hated Danica and how drunk she would get at her parties. She explained how at her latest embroidery exhibition that Danica had spread rumors that Fiona had stolen her own work from her, which ruined the exhibition's popularity as people had left before it ended. Fiona then explained that she was contacted by an anonymous person and was told the perfect plan to get revenge. Fiona, filled with anger and the urge to get revenge, got a pair of garden shears, followed Danica to the riverbank while Danica was feeding the ducks and gruesomely slaughtered her. Judge Brighton thought it was suitable for the socialite to get life in prison.

Afterwards, Major pleaded with the player to help him find Summer's poisoner as Fiona had denied poisoning her. They soon tracked down a poison bottle that contained tha same poison used on Summer, as well water from the riverbank. They went there to find a note that was written by Summer's poisoner, who was revealed to be Gabriel Ledrot. He had a gun to his head when they found him in the restored Oakley Park, which Major shot down before the player arrested him and sent him back to the station.

Meanwhile, with the help from Tristan, Rose and Jacob, Major, Leigh and the player made a Sumajor statue to gift to Summer when they visited her in the hospital. Despite Summer being poisoned, she assured them that she would make it after a week or so in recovery. It wasn't long before Jordan told them that he tracked one of the escaped convicts to the nearby Ivory Peaks caves.
