"Murder behind bars! Convict Frederick Maragway has had his head brutally bashed in. Lock away the killer and throw away the key!"

Black and Blue is the twelfth case in Starlight Shores and the fifth one situated in the Central City district.


In the beginning of the case, Linda Potters and the player arrive at the prison to investigate Frederick's murder. After searching his cell they find his battered body, beaten black and blue. Autopsy showed Frederick was beaten to death with a pointed, large object.

In the first chapter, Ella Maruke (a killer who was previously arrested) was questioned. Also, Vivienne Bird and Oakley Keys (the prison warden) were questioned.

In Chapter 2, Rosemary Hia was questioned again after her gloves were found on a crime scene. Also Connor Cranston, Vivienne Bird's new head of security, was suspected. During the investigation is was also revealed that Ella and Oakley were in a relationship after Oakley's cabinet was searched. At the end of Chapter 2, Chief Ramone tells Linda and the player that Connor Cranston is holding a prisoner at gunpoint.

After a long and tiring investigation the team indicate Ella Maruke as the killer. She first tried to deny it but after she was faced with the overwhelming evidence she admitted to the crime. She said her reason for killing Frederick was fear. When she had first been put in jail she was angry that her cellmate was Frederick ("The Limbless Man"). Over time she said she started to fear for her life as Frederick used to kill young girls, so Ella decided to take him out first. She, with the help of her boyfriend Oakley Keys, built a weapon from scratch to murder Frederick with. She then said she handcuffed him to a radiator and beat him to death. Judge Donovan extended her prison time to life without parole.

In the AI the chief worried that with the Limbless Man dead his successor may show up again. He orders you to search Frederick's cell again to see if he had any involvement with the letter sent to the SSPD. After discovering a series of letters sent to Frederick talking about plans to murder more people.

After following a lot of leads, Linda and the player discover a spreadsheet with pictures of several women on. After analysing some documents, Alice Crane confirmed that these were all women who went missing within a couple weeks of each other. She then stated that they were all between sixteen-thirty which fits with the Limbless Man's MO but since Frederick was in prison there must be a new serial killer on the loose who is copying the Limbless Man. Victoria Trent tells news sources about the new serial killer who is being called the "Imitator", Chief Ramone then orders the whole police department to hunt this "Imitator" down before more people are killed. At the end of the case, Alice Crane is sent coordinates from an unknown person leading to the an abandoned warehouse.
