—Case Teaser

Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend is a case featured in Criminal Case, it appears as the fifth case in Rusthollow and the fifty-ninth overall. It takes place in Rootwell Ranch appearing as the fifth case in the district.


Previously, the team discovered that Alden Lorenzo had gone missing and another murder had taken place on the Davenport estate. Upon arrival, they found the body of Emilie Berteneli, strangled to death. During the first chapter, the victim's lover Pierce Davenport, headmaster Charles Mayweather and student Lydia Braun were interrogated about the murder. They then received a call that a car had been set on fire in the forest. During the second chapter, doctor Reginald Cruxely and professor Milton Marlowe were suspected. It was also dsicovered that the killer wears contact lenses.

Throughout the case, it was revealed that Lydia was annoyed at the victim for dating Pierce as she loved Pierce, resulting in Emilie breaking up with a devastated Pierce. Emilie was also encouraging people to avoid Reginald after her gave her a false diagnosis. Emilie also discovered that Charles had been in a relationship with a student where he previously worked and planned to go to the police with this knowledge. They eventually arrested Lydia for the murder.

Lydia confessed to the crime and explained while she was helping Emilie move out of the Davenport estate after she broke up with her boyfriend, Lydia found a small pouch underneath a desk. Inside the pouch was a large amount of diamonds. She begged Emilie to let her take the diamonds to pay for her mother's medical bills, but Emilie refused and explained she planned to take them to the police as she had found the illegally smuggled diamonds in Charles' office. Feeling betrayed by her best friend, Lydia grabbed the skipping rope and strangled Emilie before taking the diamonds. Judge Price had sympathy for Lydia but told her no murder should go in-punished. Lydia was sentenced to 15 years in jail.

After the trial, Warren told the player and Jayden to investigate the diamonds that Emilie supposedly stole from Mayweather's office. Deciding to ask Lydia where she hid the diamonds, she explained that she hid them in the forest somewhere but couldn't fully remember where. Finding the pouch of diamonds, they uncovered Charles' fingerprints on the diamonds. Warren explained that they needed more proof and told them to get to the University to find the proof they needed. After unlocking Charles' briefcase, they found a letter addressed to Pamela Davenport about the diamond smuggling operation and where to drop the next delivery of diamonds. Confronting Pamela, she insisted she knew nothing of a diamond smuggling operation but Jayden explained that they had all the evidence they needed and arrested Pamela along with Charles.

Faith went with the plyer to help look into the disappearance of Alden Lorenzo after his finger was discovered in a repair shop. Remembering that Alden used to work at the Davenport estate, Faith and the player searched there and found an old journal of Alden's hidden away in a toy trunk. Figuring out the code to unlock the journal, Shane explained to the player that Alden wrote about a man following him through the streets. Shane further explained that the final diary entry says he's planning to go to a farm on the outskirts of the district as he's often seen this mysterious stalker heading back there. Shane insisted that Alden must have gone missing at this farm as all the diary entries stop there.

At the end of the case, Warren told the team to get to this farm, find Alden and end the diamond smuggling operation once and for all.
