—Case Teaser

Death While the Sun Shines is a case featured in Criminal Case where it appears as the fifteenth case in Sinner's Enigma. It takes place as the third case in the Arri-Gance Gorge district of Evergrace.


After Arri-Gance Gorge Sheriff Carmine Sanchez informed the detectives that her deputy, Deputy Sheriff Eric Loukas had been found murdered, the player and Felix then hurried to the local horse stables where they found the slumped body of the deputy sheriff next to a watering trough. They then filed the watering trough as the murder weapon after Jason revealed that the victim died from head trauma and the fact that wooden splinters from the trough was found in his head wound. They then interrogated Carmine about the murder before they found clues to suspect the victim's son Domingo Loukas and local priest Arturo Hernandez. Shortly after, the team were informed by Cameron that a gothic anarchist named Ashe Monaco was riling up trouble in the town center, saying that Eric deserved to die.

After they were informed about Ashe, Chief Wakefield then informed the player and Felix that Ashe was the daughter of the influential Monaco family that helped build the city of Evergrace from nothing but a small town. The detectives then went to confront the gothic anarchist, who told them that the victim was working to throw the city into chaos with his affiliation with criminals. They then suspected the gothic anarchist in Eric’s murder before they went on to suspect mobster’s wife Rita Lannuzzi. They then learned that Eric was investigating into something criminal related that could've gotten him killed. Soon after, they learned that Arturo was hosting a memorial for the victim at the town square. After they stopped Arturo's memorial in order to investigate the town center again, the team found enough evidence to arrest the victim's son Domingo in the murder.

After they found out that Domingo killed his father, the detectives confronted him in the murder of his father. However the farmer's son denied the accusations until Felix questioned him about the victim disowning him and Domingo cracked before confessing that he killed his father because his father threatened to arrest him if he didn't stop his ventures to box in deadpools. Domingo then told them that he didn't want to stop boxing, saying that it was his pride and that he wanted boxing to be his career. However the victim told his son that he would be giving up boxing and training to be a police officer or he would go to prison. Not wanting his future and his reputation to be ruined by a father who didn't like his choices in life, he stopped talking to his father. One day when he was tending to the horses, his father came and started shouting and hitting him. To defend himself, he pushed Eric away, accidentally cracking his head open with the watering trough and killing him. Domingo then was sent to Judge Dosett, who treated Domingo as an adult due to his age, and sentenced him to 10 years in prison for the murder. Afterwards, Felix told the player that they needed to interrogate Domingo more about the deadpools and see if they could find the one where the kidnapped veterans were.

The player and Felix then interrogated Domingo in prison where the young man told them that he had found out about a deadpool that featured some of the city's known veterans in war. He then told them that he had received a mystical map that hinted on where this specific deadpool was located. They then headed to the horse stables where they found Domingo's satchel. After searching the satchel, they soon found a strange map with symbols and clues on it, which they sent to Cameron to analyze. Cameron then revealed that the map had clues and symbols that he put together like a riddle filled puzzle and was able to pinpoint the location of the deadpool to a creepy ghost town. They then questioned Carmine about the ghost town and she told them that the ghost town was inhabited by a few people and animals. Carmine then told them that Eric was investigating something about the ghost town and that they would search his belongings.

On Carmine's advice, they then found Eric's wallet at the town square and found an admission card for the deadpool. Cameron then suggested that the player and Katelyn could disguise as fight watchers and get into the deadpool with the card they found. Meanwhile, Rita asked the player and Katelyn for help with reuniting with her daughter, Skylar as she missed her. They then helped Rita find and restore her locket before the detectives helped Skylar reunite with her mother, although the former did so reluctantly as she still didn't trust her mother due to her connections to Skylar's father. Rita then told her daughter that despite what Vito was planning to do, she was on her daughter's side. Skylar then agreed to have dinner with Rita, much to her mother's joy.

After all the events, the Chief told the player and Katelyn to prepare for their infiltration into the deadpool operation and rescue the hostages and Jacob from any further bloodshed as Skylar tried to regain trust with her mother.
