Burning Issue is the twenty-third case of World Edition, as well as the first case to take place in South America.


After ensuring peace and justice in North America, the GLA came to Colombia to further investigate KALA. Bogota has had extreme temperature at the instant, and when Isabelle and the player went out to patrol the streets, they found the body of journalist CBC Angela Ruiz burnt by biobutanol.

The team soon identified Ezequiel Gaos's shop as the source of the murder weapon. Soon, Mayor Palacio became a suspect. After a tiring day of investigation, the team incriminated chemist Rigoberto Dengra as the killer.

Rigoberto kept his confession brief: He did not make enough and he was struggling to make ends meet. Soon, a scientific organization named KALA, which often bought from his shop, offered him a large sum of money in exchange for murdering Angela, he gladly accepted. With the real motives of Angela's murder still being unclear, Judge Robertson sentenced him to 25 years in prison.

The team talked to Ramon Prats, the victim's fiance, about her recent investigations. After finding her laptop and having Sumiko analyze it, the team established that Angela was investigating KALA. Hector Ferrant revealed that Angela often spent a lot of time investigating Ezequiel's shop. The team found her notes in his shop, which revealed that KALA was trying to facilitate the process of climate change and that Ezequiel was responsible for the rising Bogotan temperature for releasing a compound in the atmosphere. After Ezequiel confessed to his crimes, he was arrested.

For some time, Antonio had been missing. The team found his mobile phone in a Bogotan street. They foudn that Antonio was contacting a certain Natasha Cruz. Isabelle deduced that she was his partner when Antonio came, and refused to tell the team who Natasha was.

Harry informed the team that the rising Columbian temperatures caused a flood in Venezeula, prompting the team to go thee.
