Chief assigns you and Erin to patrol the festival grounds only to find the dead body of Isaac Earnest,a Mine Tech scientist,with his throat slit.

Mid-investigation, Molly asks you to investigate MineTech, the victim's company because of her suspicions of murder. The killer was then revealed to be Paige Wesley.

Paige stated that she saw the victim tryng to sabotage the festival, an act she can't forgive

He was trying to sabotage the festival. I found him out and he tried to apologize but I couldn't forgive him for his attempts of sabotage
—Paige Wesley upon arrest

Paige was gardening at that moment thus the murder weapon and she stabbed him with the pruning knife. She was sent to 30 years in jail with a chance of parole in 10 years.

Post investigation, you ask Paige about the victim's sabotage. But all she knows is that he was leaving stuff behind at the festival ground. After investigating the stalls, you find a bomb and a note. The bomb confirms MineTech's devious intentions. The note proves that Molly was betraying MineCorp due to her suspicions. Patricia is also confirmed to be SOMBRA while Travis advises you to protect Manny since the previous CEOs of MineTech were either victims or killers. After the investigation, Chief asks you to go to the caves because of a distress message from Manny. Then suddenly, an earthquake occurs. After the earthquake, Domo states that they must stop SOMBRA once and for all and save Manny.
