—Case Teaser

Fear the Reaper is a case featured in Criminal Case as the forty-second case of the season. It is featured as the sixth and final case set in the Mystic Banks district of Aurelia.


While driving back after the Halloween party, Lydia spotted something strange in the town square. After exiting the car, the player and Silvano found the body of his sister, young photographer Katrina Macerno dismembered and pieced into the word "Reaper". Silvano then broke down into tears and refused to believe it, hugging Jason for support. Saddened, Lydia sent Jason and Silvano home so the pair could investigate. Dom reluctantly carried out the autopsy and confirmed that Katrina was dismembered by a long, curved blade.

Lydia and the player first interrogated priest Xavier Regerton before informing an unfazed Angelica of her daughter's death. The detectives also questioned Jason about the murder along with Mayor Jonathan Vansickle. Partway through the investigation, they received word that citizens of Mystic Banks had started a manhunt to find the Reaper and kill them to avenge Katrina.

The detectives raced to the town square where the citizens were protesting. To calm the crowd down, Lydia shot her gun in the air. Afterwards, the duo decided to go search Katrina's study for more clues. There, they suspected professor Velma Fang and goth Sienna Black. While the team reviewed the case thus far, Angelica entered the station and declared that they didn't know the truth about Katrina. She then told them how she despised how Katrina supported her brother despite her disowning him due to his sexuality. They then found enough clues, including the murder weapon, a scythe, to apprehend the Reaper, who was revealed to be Katrina and Silvano's mother, Angelica Macerno.

Angelica first denied the accusations and was furious at Silvano for even suggesting she could be the Reaper. Eventually, she cracked and started laughing, insisting that Katrina deserved all the pain she received. She spoke about how the Reaper had piqued Katrina’s interest and how she had started investigating it. Adamant that Katrina couldn’t find out the truth, she asked Katrina to meet her in the woods where she carved her up with a scythe. She then pieced her body parts to spell her name for all to see in the town square. Angelica started mocking Silvano, prompting him to pull his gun out and aim at her. She then started laughing at him, insisting that he was too weak to pull the trigger. That reminded Silvano that Katrina wouldn’t want him to hurt Angelica despite what she’s done and he proceeded to arrest her, sending her to trial. At the trial, Angelica told Judge Rodriguez how she was the Queen of Mystic Banks, that she was the most powerful person in the district. Disturbed by her actions, Evelyn sentenced her to life imprisonment in solitary confinement due to her twisted hunt for power, bringing the ten year long reign of terror to an end.

After the trial, the player joined Lydia Striker in talking to Trevor Aleiso, who said he and Katrina had found out about a cult gathering in Viola Gardens. They then went to Katrina’s study, where they recovered her notes on the cult. They learned that the cult first formed in Mystic Banks but made its home in Viola Gardens. They then talked to Velma, who told them they could look for any traces of the cult in the town square. There, they found a stone tablet with an insignia on it, which led the team to look into more into it.

Meanwhile, Silvano and the player decided to gather Katrina’s photographs and put them together for a funeral that Jonathan Vansickle hosted for Katrina. After Katrina was put to rest, Jason then came to Silvano, got on his knee and asked Silvano to marry him for the rest of his life. In tears, Silvano tearfully said yes and the duo shared a kiss before Jason put his fiancé’s engagement ring on Silvano’s finger. Afterwards, Silvano said that he would help them investigate the cult in Viola Gardens while he planned a white wedding with Jason. Chief Aleiso agreed that they would head to Viola Gardens to find out about the cult.
