Case Background


Last time on Criminal Case, the Campbell City Police Department was sent a letter from the congregation to come to a factory.

Previously on Criminal Case, the Congregation had sent the Campbell City Police Department a letter to come to an abandoned factory for a surprise. Reena Hollingsworth was nervous, saying that the surprise may not have been good, knowing that a theft would caused by the Congregation would be caused soon. They also knew that Delilah Hoffman could be slain, as seen by an execution order issued towards her. Not wanting to delay anything, the two went to the warehouse and found a corpse.

At the factory, a hand was found on the floor. After analysis, the hand was revealed to have belonged to Nanette Morisotte, cardsharp and suspect in a previous case. Later, Nanette's other hand and the rest of her corpse were found and autopsied by Dale Hopkins, whose analysis soon led to the murderer being incriminated as fellow cardsharp Auguste Dominique.

Auguste resisted arrest, but later confessed in vain hopes of reducing his sentence. He indeed revealed that he was an affiliate of the Congregation. The Congregation was highly sure that Nanette was spying on the Congregation, possibly in an attempt to destroy the agency, or at least permanently wound it. Despite the fact that the Congregation tried their best to not resort to murder, they felt that Nanette was learning more about the subsidiaries of the group. Auguste then wanted to be sentenced.

Judge Montgomery was vexed at Auguste, saying that Nanette trusted Auguste and that was no way to treat another player. He then said for being part of the cruel organization and gruesomely murdering Nanette, he would be sentenced to life in jail with a chance of parole in 20 years.

After Auguste was placed under arrest, prison warden Arnold Baskin wanted to talk to Reena and the player about a possible theft in Sandy Hollow, after a chat with ghost town mayor Ashley Russell. He said that he wanted to help and told him that there was an influential area with lots of money and treasure: the Sandglade Bank, owned by Angelo Giordano.

At the casino, a bank note was found adressed to Giordano himself. When carbonite powder was placed on it, an uncomprehensible signature was found on the bank note. Luckily, criminal profiler Christopher Sperazzo was able to figure out the Congregation had sent the check, prompting a talk with Giordano. Angelo responded happily to the warning from the CCPD, telling that he would be more wary.

Asides that, the primary crime scene—the abandoned factory—had to be investigated again to insure the city's safety. There, a warehouse hook was found with saliva on it, which was identified to be the killer's saliva. Auguste Dominique confessed that he did have an accomplice to the murder: fellow cardsharp Nanette Morisotte, who received 30 years of jail, since Auguste claimed that she was not a Congregation member.

After Angelo was satisfied and Nanette was arrested, mad seer Lunette Blackworth started a riot, claiming that she left an effigy of Nanette in the victim's household, prompting them to visit Nanette's house. There, they found orange dye on the effigy. The analysis of the head of forensics Erin Parker and the help of Chief Harrison revealed that the robbery had already taken place.
