—Case Teaser

Dead on Arrival is a case featured in Criminal Case as the first case of the season. It will be featured as the first case set in the Bliss Beach district of Aetherbourne.


After years of training, you (the player) are finally recruited in theAetherbourne Law Enforcement Agency. Your first mission as a detective is to make sure that the arrival of French president Clément d'Estienne d'Orves is safe. As he arrives, along with business partners, we hear his gasp as he sees the dead body of capitalist Jean Bernard lying on the floor. According to Charlotte, he was poisoned by an unknown substance. We first suspect the witness himself, president d'Estienne d'Orves. We next suspect the victim's boss, Alistair Dubois and even the mayor Evelyn Arceneaux.

A few moments later, we go back to the aircraft and look through the plane's luggage area. There we find out some more about the victim's problems and their life. Furthermore, we discover two new suspects namely: Gabrielle Dubois , the victim's girlfriend and Cameron Smithers: the pilot of flight XC5649.

Smithers then comes in to the police station stating that his manager wants the plane to be brought back ASAP to the station. We look through the plane once more to be able to incarcerate the culprit behind this crime. Finally, we arrest Alistair Dubois for the murder.

According to Alistair, Jean and Gabrielle were planing to get married already. Alistair, being prone to death, did not want his company to go to Jean since he was lazy and seemed like someone who would sell it for a higher price. He decided to end Jean and Gabrielle's relationship by murdering Jean with the poison he made. Judge Arceneaux sentences him to 20 years in prison with a chance of parole in 10 years.

After the trial, we assist Clément in his problems. According to him, he lost a very important briefcase in the luggage area which contained a confidential drive. Looking through it, we find the drive and give it back to Clément. We next help Alistair who claims he has unfinished business. He tells us to give the company ownership to his daughter Gabrielle.

At the end of this case, there have been reports of a coffin the washed up on the shore. We proceed immediately.
