Enough Rope is the twenty-fifth case in PetersCorporal's second season, Blue Coasts, as well as the fourth one in the New Lakeland district.

Case Background

After Fred Sommerville's burglary incident, Jerry Bryar told the player that they were slowly refurbishing his house, and that now Fred was staying at Jerry's place more often than not. As the conversation shifted over to politics and the current inflation (result of the Laila Myers bill), Hans Rougel said that he was leaving in order to go to a Reform Party event, having to arrive early since he was the mayoral candidate. Jerry and the player agreed to go with him since they had intentions to vote for him, due to the other two candidates (Danniel Svykozsky and Andrea Kissling) being corrupt opportunists. However, as soon as they arrived, they found the whole place still empty of people except for the dead body of Helen Steinbeck, a businesswoman who was a member of the party. In a video recorded with her phone, they saw that she had been attacked and strangled near the lake. Arguing that he needed to know what was happening inside his party, Hans said he'd stay with them and act as their partner during the investigation, which made Jerry uncomfortable and awkward but was in no position to tell him no.

They interrogated one of the event organizers, Samanta Suarez, who said she hadn't seen anything, as well as Arnold Farren, who was supposed to attend the event early as well since he was the candidate to deputy mayor, but instead he had been closer to the murder scene nearby the lake making some phone calls. Suddenly, it was reported that Alicia Appleton had gotten in trouble for walking into private property at a Honey Hill Ranch location next to the field where the Reform Party event was supposed to take place. She was actually headed towards the event since she is also a member of the party, but due to the murder it was now cancelled. Due to the ranch being next to the crime scene, they investigated there as well, finding out that one of the employees, a certain Heather Phillips had been invited to the event for being a member as well. However, Scarlett Svykozsky (wife of the Mayor) who now owned all Honey Hill Ranches after her first appearance, saw her invitation to the event while visiting the apiary and tore it up, explicitly demanding that all workers had to support the Socialist Coalition (her husband's party) and not other candidates. They also interrogated Winston Lucker, the beekeeper they'd previously met in the same case as Scarlett, who was now working at this Honey Hill Ranch.

Jerry and Hans were apalled to find out the extent to which the Svykozskies were tampering with Honey Hill Ranch, firing people for not supporting the Socialist Coalition and packing the company with their political supporters. However, after talking to Samanta again, they found out that Helen was doing the same, firing people who didn't support the Reform Party in her company and employing only rightwing people. After also discovering that Helen had been the one giving loads of money to Arnold Farren to finance their campaign (which she decided to ask him to pay back way earlier than agreed), Violet Nearnight appeared to tell the player that Alicia Appleton was giving a speech at Honey Hill Ranch.
