—Case Teaser

Blurry Lines is a case featured in Criminal Case as the eighty-ninth case of the game. It is the thirty-fifth case of Berrini and the fifth case in Shadow Corner.

Plot

On Halloween, Luke and the player went to the asylum where they first investigated the waiting room in search for any clues on asylum doctor Arthur Gullets, who apparently had autopsied the first two victims in Switzerland. When the duo found where Arthur was at that time on a schedule, they went to the doctor's office where they found Shadow Corner Mayor's assistant Charlie Osborne with holes in his head. They soon found clues to suspect district mayor Jakob Left, asylum doctor Arthur Gullets and asylum nurse Kate Winning. They then found out that Charlie was helping out the asylum on Jakob's orders, including taking asylum patients on a trip to the local cafe.

The detectives then investigated the strange cafe where they found clues to suspect the victim's friend Cassandra Williams and an asylum patient Gordon Hedison. They then found out that the victim was only working for Jakob due to his social standings. They then found out that Gordon had broken out of his room and was running away from the asylum. They then tracked Gordon down back at the cafe before they found enough clues to apprehend Arthur Gullets for the murder.

When Luke questioned Arthur about the murder, the doctor said that he didn't want to reveal anything, saying that it was possible one of the mad asylum patients was the killer. However, after all the evidence was revealed, he immediately confessed to the murder. He said that he murdered the mayor's assistant because he wanted to send a message to the mayor. He explained how Jakob said that the legend wasn't real when Arthur said that he knew that it was real. He then said that he knew because he was one of the survivors years before and that he was angry that the mayor didn't listen to anyone who said that they survived the legend's wrath. Arthur finally admitted that he believed that Jakob was the cause for those survivors to be sent to the asylum before Luke arrested him. In the trial, Judge Marrakchi decided that it was best for Arthur to be put in prison for the rest of his life.

After the trial, Luke and the player decided to interrogate Jakob Left, who denied the accusations against him. This led the player to interrogate Arthur again in prison. Arthur explained how he collected proof, including envelopes of bribe money from an unknown person to someone in the asylum. They then tracked the doctor's file on the bribe money inside his office, as well a plea for help on a strange statue. They investigated the strange statue further which led them to patient Gordon Hedison, who confessed that he was a survivor of The Shadow who was put in prison for "insanity". They then organized for him to help the other survivors get their personal possessions and to be transferred into protective custody till the legend was caught.

The player also investigated the bribe money with Astrid by dusting the envelopes for prints. Imani then revealed that the prints had belonged to nurse Kate Winning, who revealed that she was paid by someone to put the survivors in the asylum under the lies that they were mentally unstable and insane. When Kate refused to reveal her source, the detectives soon found out that Kate was paid by the Shadow, who had given her a message on a newspaper clipping that Jordan revealed involved Luke and two of his friends. This forced Luke to explain that on a skiing trip with his friends in Switzerland had led to the death of his friends at the hands of an unknown person. The victims' autopsies were similiar to the ones they found across the district, proving that Luke was the cause behind the legend's motive.

Following the case's revelations, the team had a short party before Luke recieved a message from the legend, saying that the team had finally solved the puzzle and that they would make one final victim before disappearing forever. This led Astrid and the player to promise to a panicking Luke that they would catch this murderous serial killer, once and for all...
