—Case Teaser

Becoming Your Coffin is a case featured in Criminal Case as the thirty-fifth case of the game. It is the thirty-fifth case of Rosenoque and also the second case in Justice Banks.


As Major and the player were about to have their first coffee together since Major’s poisoning, Chief Ernest came into the break room to say that a murder had been reported at a local construction site. There, they found the body of architect Charles Black, blood gushing from a hole in his neck. We first suspected Lynch family heir Alexander Lynch because the victim tried to humiliate him by constructing a naked statue of him, the victim’s father Henry Black because Charles didn’t come to his mother's funeral and ex-convict Daniel Gaynes because the victim was the reason why he was put behind bars. Later, Summer came and told the pair that she had found out the victim had been spotted in Gaulstone’s forest.

There, they found clues to add Major’s sister-in-law Elizabeth Lupo as she was against the victim because he was gonna destroy the forest to construct a residential building, possibly killing many animals and legends of the land. They also suspected rich man Andrew Littlewood who was claiming the victim owned him money. Later, a fire had been started at the construction site but that didn't stop the team from getting enough evidence to arrest Andrew for the murder.

After trying to deny the accusations, Andrew admitted to killing the architect. When Major asked why, he replied that Charles didn’t care one bit about what or where he had to build, as long he was paid handsomely. To verify those rumors, Andrew sent Charles to build on a private sector of the Gaulstone forest. Andrew then decided that Charles’s lack of humanity should be punished so he joined him on the construction site to end his life. When Charles wasn’t looking, Andrew took the screwdriver, sharpened it and stabbed him in the neck, making sure to accuse "that stupid lady Elizabeth" of the murder. Upon hearing how Andrew lambasted his sister-in-law, Major handcuffed him and brought him to court where Judge Brighton sentenced him to 30 years in prison.

After the trial, Elizabeth almost ran into the officers in a panic. When Major asked her what was wrong, she explained that someone had tried to rape her at the construction site. There, they found a phone that was discovered to have many photos of young women, including Elizabeth. The team then sent the phone to Jordan who found out it belonged to Daniel Gaynes. When he was confronted, he tried to explain himself but then admitted his crimes before being arrested.

Meanwhile, a opera singer named Flora Brighton came in the station asking for the player’s help. When they asked her she wanted, she explained that she had lost something truly important about her suspicions on a well-known family. Believing that the family was the Lynchs, they asked her where she left it. Flora then said that she got frightened in the forest of Gaulstone, dropping it. With Janice’s assistance, the player found a notebook with the Lynchs written on it. When they returned it to her, she said that she couldn’t talk at the station and said to meet her at the opera.

Upon hearing about Flora’s request, the chief decided to send the player to the opera to learn what she wanted to tell them about the Lynch family.
