Burnout is the sixteenth case of Criminal Case and the sixteenth case of Warrenville. It takes place in Stardust Junction, appearing as the third case of the district.

Plot

After their first encounter with Mr. Reus, the team started to span out all over the district. The player went with Giovanni and Zoya to investigate shooting for the action film "On Even Ground". But then they heard an explosion come from the parking lot they were shooting from, so they investigated, and found the stuntman Louis Dyer, dead.

Later on, Chief Armstrong assisted the team with the investigation by pointing them to a nearby gym the victim was at, sponsoring a new workout trend. Then, the team was asked to return to the gym as the victim's sister, Anne Dyer was tearing the place up. In the end, the team was able to arrest fitness instructor Freddy Carr for the murder.

He denied it at first, but eventually caved in saying he was blackmailed into doing it, by the black market. The pills weren't given to him by Jane, he got them from the black market, hoping to find some cheap medication for energy to keep up with his exercise regimen. But the market needed him to kill Louis because he stumbled upon it and was gonna blab, and if he didn't they'd leak to the police he got the pills from the market, knowing it would ruin his career. Hoping to keep away from the potential investigation, he crafted a bomb and hid it in his motorcycle when he wasn't looking, which exploded later on. In court, he agreed to help the police in exchange for a lighter sentence, but given his black market involvement and the murder, Judge Blackwell sentenced Freddy to 10 years in prison with a chance of parole in 5.

After the trial, the player worked with Kenny to find as much info on the market as possible. Speaking with Freddy, they discovered that he had gotten more pills besides the ones they found, but didn't use them because they could be linked back to a distributor. Upon finding them, they linked it back to a pharmacy run by one Cloe White, who confirmed that her most recent stock was stolen from some unknown party. Later on they found a letter written to Freddy, but was written in another language aside from a note to translate. Atticus determined it was written in Korean, so they'd have to look for any Korean artists before going any further.

After making sure no more loose ends were tied up back at the set, Josiah was able to find a K-Pop star in Warrenville, Sun Yu-Jin, who goes by the stage name Yujina. Thinking she may help them out, they head over to where she's scheduled to perform her latest concert.
