Following the discovery that Lynette Lovelle collected the hallucinogenic drugs from Rusthollow, the team headed back to the city where the player used to work in order to discover more. As the player and Riya arrived, they decided to take a stroll through the Cobalt Mines town square when they heard yelling. The pair quickly raced to where the screams were coming from, only to find the player's former teammate and Chief of Police Warren Gate dead, his throat slashed open. The pair first suspected the victim's daughter Bridget Gate before questioning sculptor Elvis Crims, estate owner Pamela Davenport and newly-elected Mayor Abigail Chase. The team was then contacted by detective Jayden Chase, who told them he had information on the murder.

Jayden first hugged the player when they reunited, before telling them that Warren believed he was being followed by the Emerald Lagoon museum. There, they suspected vice president Annelyse Smythe. Anya then told the player that she'd spotted Bridget ranting about her father in the town square. Upon confrontation, Bridget insisted that Warren never cared for her, saying that he was always busy with work and never made time for her. Bridget then started crying, wishing that Warren would have still been there to spend time with her. After sending her to Spencer to calm down, the pair arrested Pamela for the murder.

Pamela insisted her innocence before finally cracking, saying that she had to kill Warren to save everything she had. Pamela confessed that she'd committed insurance fraud a few years ago and Warren had started to look into it. Pamela first demanded that Warren dropped the investigation, saying that she was Pamela Davenport and didn't deserve to be treated like a common criminal. When Warren refused to drop it and become corrupt, Pamela was infuriated. Desperate to shut Warren up so her reputation wouldn't be ruined, Pamela stole the falchion sword from the museum and followed Warren to the town square. When they were alone and Warren's back was turned, she pounced on him and in one quick slice, Warren was dead. The pair quickly sent Pamela to the court in Rusthollow, where Judge Price reminded her that nobody was above the law. For her remorseless murder and insurance fraud, Pamela was sentenced to life imprisonment.

Post-trial, Jayden requested the player's help in organizing a memorial for Warren, saying that they needed something that fit his personality. With help from Bridget, Jayden and the player headed to Ridgedale mountain to Warren's safe space, where they found a photo of Warren graduating from the police academy. The pair then headed to the town square to listen to the memorial speech given by Abigail Chase. At the memorial, Abigail and the Rusthollow citizens commented on Warren's bravery and strength, promising to be inspired by his courage every day. The player then headed to the wake where they met up with Shane, Irene, Teresa and the rest of the Rusthollow police department.

Meanwhile, the player and Bradley looked through the police files and investigated the museum following a series of disturbances. After searching the area, they found a letter addressed to Lynette Lovelle. Imran analysed the letter and confirmed that the drug supplier was terminating their connection to Lynette, saying he also spotted a mysterious symbol on the paper. After examining the symbol, they discovered it to be the logo of an anarchist group (named The Followers of Freedom) in the country, revealing them as the supplier of the hallucinogenic drug. Wanting to get straight on their trail, Takagi told the team that they had a known base of operations in Yellowstone National Park. Despite Anthony's suspicious reluctance, the team set a course to Yellowstone Park to bring the anarchist group to justice.
