Fashionable Tragedy is a case featured in Criminal Case: Pheadmouth. It is the third case in the city of Pheadmouth and also the third one to take place in the Irish Valley district.


After returning from his trip to Vietnam, Christian Solar greeted the player, telling them that his friend, model Sabrina Hopper, had invited him to Allaz Hotel for a fashion show. However, during the show, the team witnessed GJ Fashion brand's top model Bianca Masters dying after drinking her poisoned glass of wine.

Mid-investigation, the team found out that waiter Crispin Ruff was the person who gave Bianca the poisoned wine glass. Later, Crispin informed the team that Bianca's killer had sent a stage outfit, on which there were a skull badge and a poison badge, as a threat to the hotel. After collecting enough evidence, the team found out that Sabrina was Bianca's killer.

Admitting to the murder, Sabrina sadly told the team that she was a drug addict during her high school years. After successfully stopping using drugs and becoming a top model of GJ Fashion, her drug-addicted ex-boyfriend came back and threatened her to give all of her money to him and sleep with him or her dark past would be revealed to other people. Being frustrated, Sabrina stabbed him to death when he tried to steal her money. Meanwhile, Bianca came to her apartment and accidentally witnessed everything, she then recorded a video of Sabrina killing her ex-boyfriend and threatened her to post the video viral if Sabrina did not let Bianca be GJ Fashion's top model. Angry at Bianca, Sabrina had put poison into Bianca's wine glass. Judge Park sentenced Sabrina to 25 years in prison for the murders of Bianca and her ex-boyfriend.

Post-trial, GJ Fashion CEO Grant Johnson asked the team for help, saying that one of the performing dresses for the show had disappeared. After agreeing to help Grant, the team managed to find the torn dress. They then got the dress to GJ Fashion's designer Jenna Morales, who then fixed the dress and told Grant that she would leave GJ Fashion to start her own fashion brand. The team also found out that Tanner O'Brien was the person who tore the dress as Camilla found Brie Me Up cheese as well as mouse hair on it. After being asked about the reason why he tore the dress, Tanner angrily explained that Grant had sabotaged his sister's fashion brand by destroying her dresses, making her lose all her money. The team then fined Tanner.

Meanwhile, the team talked to Crispin, who asked them to find an extremely rare wine bottle for the party. The team then managed to find the bottle and give it to Crispin. Afterward, Aiden informed the team that "The Collector" had cut Bianca's middle finger. Ned then found out that all of the victims who got their body parts cut by "The Collector" had a similarity: Their killers were sentenced to 25 years in prison. Chief Vinh then came to the station, telling the team to find more clues about "The Collector" by investigating Allaz Hotel, where they found "The Collector"'s notes. After getting them to Trent, he was able to discover that "The Collector" was planning to go on a Halloween party that will be held in the next few days. The team then decided to go to there to find more about "The Collector".
