Catching the Blade is a case featured in Louisgustavo's version of Criminal Case, appearing as the fifth case of the game. It is also the last case to take place in Pangkal Beach.


The abandoned house where Bradley was killed

Previously, Boris had tracked down Sonny to an abandoned house the player investigated before. The player (accompanied by Dinah) went there. They could not find Sonny but they found Bradley Simpson murdered.

The team interrogated Francis Damascus after they found an envelope containing a letter to Sonny from Francis. Dinah then interrogated James Douglas, a former soldier the player met before, and a hacker, Superior5678 as she appeared as Alice Watney.

Despite that, Sanjay deduced that Bradley was shot by a gun between his eyes. In other words, Bradley was executed. Sanjay stated that Bradley was killed with the Accuracy International Arctic Warfare, a sniper rifle. He also informed that the killer had to know how to handle gun to be able to kill the victim.

After the autopsy, Boris gave the coordinates of the Blade headquarters. The team immediately went there where they found Sonny and suspected him. Sonny said that he saw the victim in the park. So, the cops went there to search more clues where they discovered that Alice, and Richard had been abducted too. After that, Dinah and player interrogated a burger vendor, Richard Monroe and Alice about their abduction.

Later, Min-jong told the team to investigate the Blade headquarters once again because they were packing off. At there, they discovered that the murder weapon was none other than the Accuracy International Arctic Warfare, a sniper rifle Sanjay mentioned.

The cops gathered enough evidence to incriminate Sonny, the player's partner in Bradley's murder. Sonny admitted that he had no choice to kill Bradley. He killed Bradley to protect himself from death. He then informed the team that he was also a member of the Blade when he was a teenager but left for some reason. Chief Watson decided to postpone the trial to seek the truth.

After putting Sonny in the temporary custody, Claire and the player went to interrogate Francis about the murder. He said that he would abduct the people who left the organization including Sonny and Bradley. They then went to the Blade headquarters where they found Sonny's mobile phone and it was sent to Boris. Boris and Clarie found that Sonny was nearly killed by Francis. Sonny then escaped with Bradley and killed him in the abandoned house.

They then questioned Sonny about the murder. He then asked them to go to the abandoned house. They found a footage and it showed about the murder. Claire, and the player found out that Sonny saved Alice (the hacker), and Richard for being abducted by Francis and was brought to the abandoned house by Sonny. They also found that Bradley was also the member of that organization and Sonny was hypnotized when he killed Bradley.

In the trial, Francis told Judge Syarifuddin that he was sick for his occupation, mechanic, so he founded an organization ten years ago before the events of the game. Judge Syarifuddin sentenced Francis life in jail for abducting a police officer, causing Mariah Thompson to die, took a life of many people, and ordering a police officer to kill Bradley. Sonny, on the other hand, was granted immunity for the crime because he saved Alice, and Richard for being abducted.

After the trial, Sonny told the player that he was not sure that the organization had been stopped. He also informed that he saw Francis with his members at the park while he was escaping. They found a paper in the park and Gabriel revealed that the Blade had shuted down.

After the team's hard work had done in Pangkal Beach, Chief Watson promoted the rest of the team to West Area.
