—Case Teaser

Blow It Out Your Ear is a case featured in Criminal Case as the thirteenth case of the season. It is featured as the first case set in the Utopian Peaks district of Aurelia.


The team soon arrived in Utopian Peaks, in which Thomas Wilford explained that the district was full of technology that spanned the past, present and future. When Thomas suggested that they go for a walk in the local Central Park, the player and Lydia agreed. However while they walked through the park, they were interrupted by an explosion nearby. Soon Lydia and the player discovered TechLife CEO Irene Crosby with her face half blown off. Dominic confirmed her cause of death as an explosion from a rigged earring she wore. They soon suspected iPineapple CEO Spencer Boldman, the victim's secretary Harley Davidson and entrepreneur Gertrude Scott before Thomas told them that the victim frequently worked at a local co-working space. Soon the duo found clues to suspect scientist Rita Reinguard and bodyguard Alberto Guarneri before they learned that Alberto was about to kill himself. Despite his attempted suicide, the team went ahead to arrest Alberto for the crime.

Alberto denied planting explosives in Irene’s earring but eventually cracked under the pressure saying he started receiving messages from an unknown person. He explained that the messages would talk about how he should kill Irene and get a large amount of money in return. Alberto tried to ignore the messages until he was hurt while protecting Irene causing him to have large hospital bills. Feeling he had no alternative, Alberto rigged Irene’s earring with explosives and then detonated it while watching from a distance. In court, Judge Rodriguez asked Alberto who this mysterious person was and he explained he had no idea. Due to this, Evelyn sentenced him to thirty years in jail.

After the trial, Lydia and the player went to the park to investigate the disappearances. They soon found a briefcase that revealed Gertrude was also investigating the mysterious disappearances. She explained that she had a memory stick full of information but had lost back at the coworking space. Callum analyzed the memory stick, revealing that fourteen people had all disappeared under similar circumstances.

Silvano and the player also went to speak to Alberto about the payments who explained he received the payments through his phone which he had left in Irene's office. The duo raced there and discovered the phone in a storage box. Callum told the pair that the payments were anonymous but he was able to trace it back to a TechLife store. The team then decided to investigate the local TechLife store.
