—Case Teaser

Blast of the Cannon is a case featured in Criminal Case as the sixty-seventh case of the game. It is the thirteenth case of Berrini and the first case in Radar Hill.

Plot

Days after the end of the animal trafficking scheme in Wandering Woods, the player and Luke Leon-Mathieu were drinking coffee together when they received photos of Major Lucas and Summer Murphy finally getting married back home in Rosenoque. Soon after, Chief Crosby informed the duo of a murder at the nearby Cedar estate. The duo soon headed there to collect the body of Jason Cedar, his body blasted apart by a cannonball. The detectives soon interrogated Jason's three siblings, sister Julia Cedar, younger brother Johnny Cedar and twin brother Jimmy Cedar. Beatriz soon confirmed the cannonball was blasted from one of the family estate's fabled cannons.

There, they found clues to interrogate both of Jason's parents, businessman Jonas Cedar and socialite Jacqueline Cedar. Soon the team were greeted by Jack Chapman before he told them that Jonas was chasing him with a wolfhound. After Luke and the player told Jonas to stand down, Jack told them that the victim had been stalking him and Julia on their dates, leading them to talk to Julia again. However despite family tensions, the detectives put enough evidence to apprehend the victim's twin brother Jimmy Cedar for the homicide.

Jimmy told the detectives that they had no proof against him, but he snapped when Luke mentioned the fact that Jimmy had spat on the victim's trophy and he admitted to the murder. Jimmy explained how Jason was the golden boy and was better than him despite being mere minutes younger than him. Jason's achievements soon made their father Jonas pass the family heir title from Jimmy to Jason, which made him angry and extremely jealous. Angered by being outshined, Jimmy went to the battleground and blasted Jason while he was on his usual morning walk. Judge Marrakchi found it suitable to give Jimmy 30 years in prison for the domestic homicide.

Soon after the trial, Julia and Jack came to the station asking for help as Jonas had disowned Julia and kicked her out. They then went to the Cedar estate where they met Johnny. Johnny explained that as Jason had been killed and Jimmy was in prison, he was confident that he was now the family heir and that he could bend the rules in their favor so Julia could earn her promised trust fund before Jonas cut ties with her for good. Soon the player found Jonas's will which allowed Jordan to confirm that Johnny, as the solo heir of the Cedar fortune, could force Jonas to give Julia her trust fund. They then proceeded to do so much to Jonas's disapproval as he told Julia that he would never want to see her again. However Jack stood against Jonas and told him that he would love Julia all his life.

Meanwhile Edward told them that he saw his sister with Jacqueline on the battleground. After tracing her handbag, necklace and handkerchief, the player, Luke and Edward met Ruth Chandler-Jameson, Edward's sister. She greeted them kindly and then asked Edward why he hadn't visited her in a while, in which Edward replied was due to work. Soon the team reconvened and Chief Crosby felt that following the case, that they would need to watch Radar Hill's activity in case of any more bloodshed.
