—Case Teaser

Fight or Flight is a case featured in Criminal Case as the fifty-fifth case of the game. It is the first case of Berrini and the first case in Markle Metropolis.


The player arrived in the local airport of Markle Metropolis, Berrini after their previous tenure in the city of Rosenoque. They arrived at the city's police department to be greeted by Chief Duncan Crosby, who told them of the department's various members and the crime currently attacking the district of Markle Metropolis. Before he could do anymore, senior detective Luke Leon-Mathieu came in to inform the duo of a murder at the town's entrance. Chief Crosby sent the player with Luke to investigate.

The victim was a local traveler named Clint Redwood, found strangled to death and without his fingers. Coroner Beatriz Gonzales was quick to point out that the fingers was removed post-mortem aside the victim being strangled with a rope or cable of some kind. They investigated the local airport soon after a suspect's testimony, obtaining more suspects along the way. Soon after, the detectives learned that a news report had reported their victim being spotted stealing from a local bank.

They soon added the manager of the same bank as well the journalist who pitched the news report. They then unraveled motives, including Emily's attempt on reporting a scandal between her and the victim. The clues and evidence soon determined to be the victim's neighbour, Rosalina Mulroney.

Rosalina quickly admitted to the murder saying that the victim had ruined her life. Clint came to her house one day and "accidentally" made her fall on her glass table, causing her to be impaled with a shard of glass in her torso. After she was hospitalized, she learned that because the glass shard cut her too close to her heart, she wouldn't be able to go on an airplane ever again as it could be lethal for her health. When she heard that Clint would go travel again while she would be stuck in her house because of him, she went to the town entrance to end his life. Judge Yasmine Marrakchi sentenced her to 21 years in prison.

After the killer was put behind bars, the chief asked Luke and the player, on Fred Tremaine's request, to go investigate the victim's involvement during the bank robbery. At the bank, they found a letter inside a cryptex that revealed to be a message to the victim saying that he had been recruited for the crime of the century. Imani Kayode and Jordan Charleston explained that they couldn't find something about who gave that letter to the victim but whoever sent the letter had to have masterminded other crimes to be so precise in their choice of attack.

Meanwhile, Astrid Flores and the player went to the airport after Ryan told them he needed assistance after he lost his family photo to the wind. They found the photo and gave it back to him on which he said that he saw someone lurking around the city entrance. There, the player found a photo of a building with next target marked on it. Then they saw a person nearby, who denied having dropped the photo before walking off.

The chief told his three detectives that they would need to keep an eye on the local awards ceremony for any attacks or connections to the mastermind behind the crime of the century.
