Disconnected is the fifty-second case of Criminal Case and the fifty-second case of Warrenville. It takes place in Gearheart Central, appearing as the fourth case of the district.

Plot

As the team arrived at the electric plant, they're informed by the plant manager Jillian Ball that while examining the plant she came across a dead body. She led the team over to where she found it, and the team saw plant worker Ike Kennedy impaled on the power station. Given the burn marks on the body, the team concluded the power station was destroyed when the pipe when through the victim and into the station, meaning the killer caused cellular communications to go down.

The team began by suspecting Jillian alongside roboticist Xiomara Blackwell and crime novelist Joshua Douglas. Later on the team got word that a riot was going on at the nearby Pear store. After settling the crowd, the team added Polish software engineer Zenobia Cebulska and Titan Inc CEO Michael Woodleigh. Along the way they learned the victim assaulted Joshua for unknown reasons, and the victim's behavior was leading Jillian to consider firing him. Later on, they spotted someone roaming around their crime scene.

That someone was revealed to be Xiomara, who was looking for parts to improve her robot Har-Monia. However, despite having approval from the manager, Ike was threatening her to keep out, which made her mad. After getting her out of the crime scene, the team discovered Zenobia was suing him for damage done the company, and that the victim also got on Michael's nerves due to his opinion on Titan Inc's work. Eventually the team discovered Ike's killer to be Jillian.

Though she tried to deny the evidence, she eventually told them the truth. She said the victim had been purchasing from the black market for years, even hooking his father up with deals for their organ harvesting ring. However, the victim had refused to continue doing any deals until he got paid, as he attempted to blackmail them. They demanded Jillian deal with him, blackmailing her to dispose of Ike, so she grabbed a pipe and skewered Ike onto a power station, unknowingly causing cellular communications to be cut. Due to Dexter Blackwell's sister being a suspect, his successor, Judge Autumn Malone presided over Jillian's trial. She informed her that despite being blackmailed, she still knowingly purchased from the market and was no better than Ike, especially for her reckless actions causing cellular communications to go down. So for her crimes, Judge Malone sentenced Jillian to 35 years in prison with no parole.

Following the trial, Xiomara approached the team saying she spotted Jillian conversing with someone just before the murder, with a large bag of money. After locating the money, the team confronted Jillian saying if she was blackmailed then why was she offered money. She said they told her to cut off power to the cell towers. But when asked why she told them she had no idea, but after analyzing the note they discovered Zenobia handed her the money. With no choice, Zenobia confirmed she was part of the black market, the one who bribed Jillian into cutting cell connection and later blackmailing her into killing Ike. As for why, Zenobia said the market needed to demonstrate the power they commanded by "controlling their technology at the source", but would say no more as she shot herself to avoid being arrested.

After working with Michael to re-establish power to the cell towers, Daphne informed the team Zenobia had been partaking in the market's Spice drug given her apparent suicide. The team later pieced together what Zenobia meant by controlling tech at the source, believing that Titan Inc had to be involved. The team then decided to head over to Titan Inc for some answers.
