Struck with Lightning Does Hypnotism Even Exist?

Classic Murder is a case featured in Criminal Case, appearing as the second case of the game as well as the city of Alpha Bay, and the second one to take place in the Street Valley district.


Susan wanted to show the player around. After a while when they came near the local diner, the diner owner named Monica Storm told them that she had seen the defending champion golfer, Johnny Howard lying dead at the supermarket. Hearing this, the team didn't hesitate to investigate the supermarket and found the victim who was stabbed in his back.

Eva told them that the death cause was pretty obvious, he died due to blood loss. She confirmed that the killer is right-handed by judging the angle of the wound.

The team interrogated Monica who said that Johnny often went to her shop. They also interrogated Casey Walter, the victim's girlfriend who said the victim was pretty upset recently. Then they investigated an abandoned house where the victim used to go frequently which turned out to be Richard Stamford's drug supplying HQ, leading him to be a suspect once again. He confessed to provide the victim with drugs and mentioned that the victim had become depressed recently. The victim's opponent of the final match of the previous tou rnament, Ricky Tipton appeared to be questioned on who's words even death was less for a cheat like the victim.

The player & Susan then decided to investigate Monica's diner, given how Johnny went there and Monica herself was a suspect. This worked as they came to know that Johnny gave $50000 to Roger Spitfire. Roger was immediately interrogated who said the victim gave them the money because they did a work for him. And after they investigated the abandoned house again, they found out that the victim owed nearly $15000 for drugs. The team knew that Richard could kill people for money as he did before, so they didn't hesitate to question him. Richard was furious about the fact and said he wanted to thank who had murdered Johnny. It was also revealed that Johnny wanted to reason with Ricky for the tournament event, but Ricky didn't listen to him and drove him out of his house.

The team decided to investigate the diner again and found out from Monica that she was angry at the victim for bringing Roger and his gang with him. Even Ricky followed him and would go to the diner. Roger and Ricky never paid their bill which made Monica furious at the victim. Then they went back to the primary crime scene and with the help of a bunch of clues, they successfully incriminated Ricky Tipton for the murder of Johnny Howard.

Ricky told them that he should be congratulated for killing Johnny as he was a cheater. Susan asked him how did Johnny cheat and Ricky replied that in order to win the match without any problem, Johnny put drugs in Ricky's bag and he told the authority that Ricky won the previous matches by cheating. After that the authority didn't even think twice and disqualified Ricky and declared Johnny as the champion of the tournament when Ricky deserved to win the trophy as a better player than Johnny. That event made Ricky angry enough to kill Johnny, even he followed Johnny everywhere. Johnny became depressed after that event and wanted to atone for that. So, he asked Ricky to meet him at the supermarket even after getting driven by Ricky from his house, giving him an ultimate chance to kill Johnny. Ricky was so angry that he stabbed Johnny, even after he apologized. For the first-degree murder, Judge Powell sentenced him to 30 years in prison with a chance for parole in 20 years.

After arresting Ricky, Casey asked them to find out why Johnny cheated in the final match. They came to know that Roger and his gang was behind all those amd that they made a deal only to get the money from the victim. After fining Roger and giving the news to Casey, they investigated the diner as people were complaining that Monica was serving unhygienic food. But after a quick analysis, it was revealed the food was fully safe and hygienic. Then Monica offered them a special burger as a thanks.
