Death Warmed Over is the twenty-eighth case of Criminal Case and the twenty-eighth case of Warrenville. It takes place in High-Top, appearing as the sixth case of the district.

Plot

With Luke missing, the player, Josiah, Sonia and Kenny head out to the hot spring where he was last reported to be seen. But when they got there, they ended up finding of hiker Francine Velazquez, strangled and face down in the springs.

Due to the murder, they had to put their investigation into Luke's whereabouts on hold until they were done. They began by suspecting fellow hiker Umbrielle Vaughn, Isabel's step-father Umberto Bryant, and spa therapist Bethany Korber. After a while, Kenny returned to the station saying he had news on the victim's movements.

Later on the team suspected animal ranger Samuel Woods and retired police officer Esmerelda Sanchez. Then Samuel came by the station saying he saw the yeti. Eventually the team arrested Umbrielle for the murder.

Umbrielle denied the charges, saying they were nothing beyond friendly rivals. But then she couldn't take it anymore and told them it was her only chance at winning the competition. She told them whoever made it to the top of Mount Zarkon would be able to rename it, and Francine told her she had a way to make it past the Yeti's turf. Worried she'd lose, she surprised Francine at the hot springes and strangled her with a towel. Judge Blackwell saw it fitting to sentence her to 20 years in prison.

After the trial, Umberto came by the station, demanding Isabel that she comes back to work at their convenience store. Eventually she had enough and felt like the trouble wouldn't end until she just returned, so she told the team she was leaving the police and heading back. Sonia and the player felt she was being guilted into going back like they learned from her brother in the previous case. They spoke with Esmerelda about ideas, given she was Isabel's initial inspiration for joining the police, and ended up finding an old toy badge Esmerelda gave her when she was a kid. They managed to catch up with her as Umberto and Yara came to pick her up, and after some convincing Isabel decided she'd stay after all. Yara and Umberto were outraged, but then Chief Armstrong came by and warned them if they kept harassing the station, they'd press charges and have them arrested. They left, but Umberto warned them they haven't heard the last of this.

Meanwhile, the player and Josiah followed a lead from Kenny on Luke's whereabouts. Though they didn't find him, they did find another bag containing illegal drugs. Considering it was found along a hiking trail, they spoke with Umbrielle again to see if she saw anything. She did catch a few people dealing drugs, but when she tried to follow, she came across the yeti and it attacked her. She didn't report it because she thought no one would believe her.

After all was said done, the team was starting to think the yeti was linked to the market, but they didn't have any definitive proof. But as long as Luke was missing, they were determined to keep looking into it.
