—Case Teaser

Don't Hang the Evil is a case featured in Criminal Case as the eighty-second case of the game. It is the twenty-eighth case of Berrini and the fourth case in Calamity Canyon.


The team headed to the local Calamity Prison to find out more about the golden city's "guardians" who was convicted for killing people who dared to search for the golden city. However before they could find out about the convicts, they were informed by prison warden Charlotte Johnson that a murder had taken place. They then went to the prison's execution site where they found convict Kris Loseman decapitated in the prison's guillotine. They soon suspected Charlotte along with criminal Peter Johningson and hangman Ned Koirlingson. Soon Nikolai told them that he found out that the victim was one of the golden city's guardians.

The team then decided to visit the victim's cell block for clues. There, they found clues to suspect miner Olivia Duncan and secret agent Isabella Kingsmen. Soon after, they had to stop Charlotte from shooting the prisoners who were rioting over the victim's death. They then had to stop Isabella from her attempt to take over the murder investigation as she revealed that she was investigating the victim and his involvement in the golden city. Despite the suspect motivations, the team collected enough clues to apprehend Isabella for the homicide.

Isabella denied the murder until she snapped and revealed that she murdered the victim because of a robbery that she was involved in. She told the team that Kris had abandoned her during the heist, leaving her to barely escape. When the team asked about the robbery and why she killed him, she revealed that she didn't know as her mind was blank and that she couldn't remember a thing about the murder. The team were puzzled by this which led Raj to write a report for Judge Marrakchi, who decided to put Isabella in a mental asylum.

They then interrogated Isabella again with the help of Raj, who deduced that something more than the murder had happened at the guillotine. This led the duo to find a pendulum (per Jordan) that had the fingerprints of Lucy Fernández on it. This led the duo to confront Lucy, who explained that Kris had to die for trying to sell the secrets of the golden city to the prison's convicts. She explained that she had brainwashed Isabella into beheading Kris before the detectives decided to warn Charlotte about the "guardians" she had in the prison. They then released Isabella with Yasmine's consent into therapy with Raj.

The team also assisted Olivia Duncan in recovering her map of the district before she told them that explorers from all over Australia were coming to Berrini for the golden city. This led the Chief Crosby to order the team to monitor for any actions concerning the golden city when Nikolai said that they had received a call about a group of explorers destroying a nearby archeological dig.
