—Case Teaser

Dismember from the Heart is a case featured in Criminal Case as the twenty-fifth case of the season. It is featured as the first case set in the Misty Isle district of Aurelia.


The team arrived in the woodlands of mainland Misty Isle despite Callum's numerous warnings and expressions of disgust. Soon the player and Lydia were called to the scene of a severed arm with no other remains to be found. Despite the severed arm, Dominic was able to identity the victim from her blood as a Misty Isle local named Isabelle Hutchins. They soon suspected hunter Axel Cobrabacker, hermit Gina Ashridge and psychic Yvonne Sterling. Later, a man called to report that he had found a pair of legs in his treehouse.

They soon went to the treehouse where they found the victim's legs, as well Cal's childhood friend Dylan Hunter, who told them that they had grew up playing in the treehouse. They also suspected property developer Brooke Carmichael about the murder. Later, they found out that someone was destroying the treehouse, who was found to be Brooke. Soon the team recovered the victim's remains and found enough evidence to arrest mysterious woman, Gina Ashridge for the gruesome murder.

The strange woman started wringing her hair and confessed to the crime saying she was told to do it. She explained her belief that she needed to cut someone up and eat them, choosing Isabella as the target. The delusional killer insisted that she was interrupted while committing the crime by distant noises, resulting in her dumping the body parts across the woods. Before the pair could handcuff her, Victoria entered the room and told the duo she believed Gina had schizophrenia and thought jail was not a suitable place for her. In court, Victoria explained the case to Judge Rodriguez and the judge agreed that prison was not the best place for Gina, sentencing her to life in asylum at Edgewater Asylum in Ravenedge.

After the case was closed, Lydia told the player that Callum had fled again. They soon talked to Axel, who allowed them to look for clues in his treehouse. They found an old photo of Callum and Dylan by the old treehouse. They went there to find his gear necklace and Callum himself. Callum explained that the reappearance of his best friend frightened him and that he wasn't ready to brave his past on the island. However Lydia comforted him before kissing Callum on the cheek.

Meanwhile Victoria asked the player to join her in asking Yvonne Sterling to do a reading on her. After the player retrieved the psychic's cards, Yvonne did the reading for Victoria, which helped the psychic reveal that Victoria would have to make her choice when the time was right. Victoria and the player thanked Yvonne and joined the rest of the team, who were boarding a ship to Misty Isle.
