—Case Teaser

Dead Like a Rag Doll is a case featured in Criminal Case, it appears as the twenty-ninth case in Rusthollow and the eighty-third case overall. It takes place in Toad Marsh appearing as the fifth and penultimate case in the district.


After the shock revelation that voodoo priestess Sveta Dernier had been murdered, Jayden and the player rushed to the scene where they found Sveta punctured with multiple pins. Melissa confirmed that Sveta died on blood loss due to mass amount of pins stabbed into her body, fifty-two to be precise. The team also investigated the nearby swamp restaurant, where they suspected chef Mac Cadaveri, private investigator Jackson Sharp and swamp misfit Bill Cleary. The team were then interrupted by Tessa Moire who insisted she had to confess something.

Tessa explained that Sveta had been teaching her about voodoo and would do anything to help catch the killer, directing them to a stone circle in the forest where she and Sveta used to meet up. At the new crime scene, they also found reason to flag town crier Igor Thomlinson as a suspect. They also discovered that Sveta had accused Mac of giving her food poisoning and that she hired Jackson to look into Next Generation Industries following Troy's death. As the team reviewed the case, Igor broke in insisting that Sveta had cursed him.

Jayden and the player spoke to Igor who insisted that he was cursed. He explained that Sveta had cursed him so that death would follow him, believing that to be the reason why he had been suspected in two murders. Clearly delusional, Jayden sent Igor home before proceeding to investigate. They discovered that Bill hated Sveta's son, Troy, due to Troy mocking him and it was also revealed that Sveta had refused to carry on teaching Tessa voodoo, resulting in Tessa attempting to curse her. Finally, the team arrested Mac for the murder.

The team confronted Mac, where he denied killing her and insisted that he was innocent. The player and Jayden presented the evidence, causing Mac to finally confess his guilt. He explained that he worked for Next Generation Industries and further explained that Sveta had discovered the location of the secret vault, Next Generation's base of operations. Mac confessed that he knew he had to kill Sveta and decided to give her a fitting end by stabbing her with multiple pins. In court, Judge Price offered Mac a shorter sentence on the condition that Mac told the police where Next Generation Industries' vault was. He refused, leaving Judge Price with no choice but to sentence him to life imprisonment.

After the trial, Jayden requested the player's help in finding Jordan's lost teddy bear. He explained that he and Jordan had been at the swamp restaurant when he had last seen the bear, so the duo headed there. Soon, they found the bear in a pile of algae and repaired it before giving it to Abigail Chase who Jordan was currently staying with. Upon giving the bear back to Abigail, Jayden asked if she would like to go have dinner with him. Sadly, Abigail declined the date invitation and thanked the duo for returning the bear.

Faith and the player also questioned Mac in prison about Next Generation Industries but to no avail, resulting in them searching Sveta's hut to for more leads. They eventually found a map of Toad Marsh, with an 'X' marked on the nearby stone circle. The duo raced there and found a locked box containing a set of numbers, later revealed to be coordinates to Next Generation Industries' vault. With no more time to waste, the team raced to the vault to stop Next Generation Industries once and for all!
