Dead as a Doornail (Case #16) is the sixteenth fanmade case and is the sixth one in the Baywood Hills district by CCFan32.

Case Background

Detective Patricia Bennett invites the player to the Purple Moon bar where the members of the Whitevale Police Department go after work, excluding Chief Price. When the player arrives at the bar, everybody was outside, including the department members. Profiler Harry Rockwell informs the player that when he went to the bar, he found a dead body on the pool table.

Once inside the bar, an artist named Priscilla Powers strapped to the pool table with a nail through her skull. After hours of study, Elizabeth confirmed that the nail killed Priscilla in an instant once it pierced her skull. It wasn't until the team's second visit to the pharmacy where they found a nail gun, which was later revealed to be the murder weapon. The killer was revealed to be a pharmacist named Andrew Bond.

Andrew and Priscilla worked together as artists and shared their ideas together several years prior to this case. Priscilla stole all of Andrew's ideas and went solo. Because of this, Andrew didn't have any ideas to paint or draw, resulting in the loss of his job. He later got a job as a pharmacist, a job which Andrew despised. Priscilla became very wealthy once she sold "her" paintings. Andrew became angry and ambushed her in the bar before it opened. Patricia sent Andrew to trial, thinking he was avaricious.

In court, Andrew believed that what he did was morally just and delivered justice. The Honorable Kingsley told Andrew that his way of delivering justice was utterly unorthodox and that real justice was about to be served. Andrew disagreed with Judge Kingsley and can't realize his actions and was handed down a life sentence with a chance of parole of 40 years.

In the hours following Andrew Bond's impoundment, Mr Valentine chatted with Junior Officer Michael Collins and the player via webcam and gave them an address to go to. When the team goes to the address, they discover that the address belongs to an abandoned warehouse. Once inside, the team finds a dead body hung to a hook and is shocked when they see who the victim was.
