—Case Teaser

Broken Hearted is a case featured in Criminal Case as the twenty-fourth case of the season. It is featured as the sixth and final case set in the Amore Square district of Aurelia.


On Valentine's Day, while the team were recovering from the gunfights that ravaged the events of the previous case, Florence received a call about a murder in a local church. There, Lydia and the player found family heir Alessandra Ferrari slumped in a statue’s arms. Lydia believed that it was suicide before Dom confirmed that it was not as he discovered half of Alessandra’s heart carved out. The detectives went to suspect clock maker Piero Mosconi, mobster Salvador de Angelis and the victim’s father Alphonso Ferrari before they learned that Alessandra visited her lover’s burial site hours before her death. There they found clues to suspect the two lovers’ friend Antonio Vecchia and Alessandra’s brother Lorenzo Ferrari. Soon after, Lorenzo threatened the team to arrest the killer before he did. Despite Lorenzo’s threats, the detectives, in a shocking turn of events, then arrested gondolier Antonio Vecchia for Alessandra’s murder.

After he denied involvement, he ended up tearing up following the accusation of being jealous of Alessandra seducing Valentino. He said that he did have a romantic interest for Valentino and that he briefly dated him but it wasn’t the reason for him killing Alessandra. He told them that Alessandra had acted to the police like she could get over her lover’s death but instead he found Alessandra, crying and drinking from a glass of wine. When he went to see her, she begged for him to end her life as she couldn’t bring herself to end her own life. Antonio, after many pleading and begging, finally agreed as he didn’t have a life anymore, seeing that his beloved was gone. He then followed her instructions of killing her, draping her body on a statue and carving half her heart out so she could be with Valentino when he went to place the piece among his shrine. As Antonio deeply regretted it, Judge Rodriguez gave Antonio eight years in prison for Alessandra’s murder.

After Antonio’s trial, Florence told them that Alphonso had given up on the mafia now that his rival was arrested and her daughter dead and that he had left Aurelia for Tuscany. Then Lydia told the player that Callum had stormed out of the station, strangely for no reason. After they found a phone with a recording of Piero doing a vlog and Callum shoving him aside, they soon traced Callum’s tracks to the Ferrari family monument where they found a postcard inside Callum’s backpack. The postcard’s message described how a mysterious crypt with rumors of a fortune for the lucky adventurer who should find it. They soon found Callum, who explained that the postcard was from his childhood friend, Dylan Hunter. He explained that he left Misty Isle when he was eighteen because he despised the so called secrets of the island. Chief Aleiso decided that they should watch over the expeditions despise Callum’s protests.

After the team returned Antonio’s medallion of Valentino and Alessandra and the ensured burial of the two lovers that took place, the team then went to Misty Isle, where more mysteries lurked among the mist...
