Crying Bloody Murder is a case featured in Criminal Case, appearing as the fifty-first case of the game and the first case of the game's World Edition (Season 2). It is also the first case to take place in Europe.


At the International Crime Agency's European Headquarters, Ceirios informed the player, who was newly promoted from the Greycott Police Department, that the organization is a top-ranking police agency that does not answer to anything but justice by all means necessary. The player had no problem meeting the Agency's expectations, so Ceirios introduced them to Chief Irene Cross. Europe has been the victim of tree spiking and arson as of late and the Chief wanted to get to the bottom of this mystery. The player was then sent to Big Ben with Glenn to patrol.

Unexpectedly, Glenn and the player found Edmund Laud, the Archbishop of Canterbury, with multiple stab wounds on his body. Zaire, the Agency's coroner, deduced that the killer used a very long sharp blade to pierce the victim's body judging by how deep the wounds were. After the player met the rest of their co-workers, they investigated the St Giles' Cathedral in Edinburgh, Scotland and the Botanic Gardens in Belfast, Ireland, as well as flagged five suspects during the investigation: the architect of the Big Ben, Sir Gilbert Giles, who deemed the Archbishop as a religious hypocrite and tried to steal the Veil of Veronica from him, thinking he wasn't worthy of possessing it; Princess Eleanor Spencer of Wales, who argued with the Archbishop after discovering that he was laundering funds from the Catholic Church to his personal bank account; Andrew Armstrong, the Bishop of Edinburgh, who was attacked by the Archbishop after he tried to expose his secret of money laundering; tourist Tina Maddox, who harassed the Archbishop for personal reasons; and ecologist and foreign student Lia Harper, who held a personal grudge against the Archbishop for his recent actions on the environment. After identifying the murder weapon to be a 15th century sword called the Zweihänder, the team found enough evidence to incriminate Princess Eleanor Spencer of Wales as Edmund's killer.

Eleanor hated Glenn's sudden accusation of homicide, but the police artist-turned-detective took time to snap at her with the player's findings during the murder investigation. Eleanor refused to kill anyone, but discovering the Archbishop's secret drove her over the edge. As the team already knew, Edmund was laundering money from the Catholic Church to fund his own luxurious lifestyle but what only Eleanor knew is that the Archbishop was attempting to ruin the Royal Family by continuing his money laundering. Doing so would result in Eleanor no longer being the Princess of Wales. Not willing to allow this to happen, Eleanor took matters into her own hands and lured the Archbishop to the top of the Big Ben to assassinate him. This led to an argument which led to Eleanor stabbing Edmund until he bled to death. Glenn opted to ship the princess to International Court.

Judge Bloodworth was not pleased about the Princess of Wales being on trial for grand homicide, but went ahead to ask Eleanor how she pleaded for the murder of Edmund Laud. Eleanor pleaded guilty given the overwhelming evidence the player had against her. Judge Bloodworth chose to sentence Eleanor to 30 years in jail with no parole possibility for the manslaughter of the Archbishop of Canterbury.

Moments after arresting the Princess of Wales, the player is congratulated by the Agency staff for arresting their first killer. However, their work is not done yet as Chief Cross suspects Lia Harper may be a part of the organization terrorizing Europe and the press has reported the Crown Jewels being stolen. Cross sends the player to interrogate her and investigate Big Ben once more. Lia denies being a part of any organization, saying that she protects the environment independently. When the team finds her diary with plans to make Europe completely green by all means necessary, Lia felt upset and stated she would never endanger the lives of others to meet her goal.

Meanwhile, the team found the missing Crown Jewels in the Big Ben and found Sir Gilbert Giles' DNA on it. When interrogated, Gilbert apparently found the Crown Jewels hidden in the sewers of London and took it back to the Big Ben to hide it from the true thieves. The ICA decides to let Gilbert go. After the team deals with these issues, Andrew requested the team's immediate help of finding the Pope, who was supposed to visit the St. Giles' Cathedral but vanished. The team found the Pope's hat with a strange device inside it which is revealed to be a tracking device belonging to an organization called Global Green with Lia Harper being the owner of said tracking device. Lia admitted that Global Green is an eco-terrorist organization dead set on making Europe being an eco-friendly continent. The team almost arrests her, but Lia sets off a smoke bomb and flees.

Aleks happily reports to the Chief and the player that Global Green keeps track of where its members are, but only two of them are in the field. Lia's tracking device is in Madrid, Spain while another person named "Weak Gall Nor" is in Athens, Greece. The press reports the Pope is missing and the ICA is slandered for not preventing it. Angry but determined, Chief Cross sends the player to Madrid while Glenn stays behind to ensure no other attacks occur in the United Kingdom.
