Fish Out the Killer is the tenth case in AlexClayton's fangame, appearing as the nineth case of Pacificburgh. It is the first case that takes place in Historical Center.


Previously, Vanessa ran away after an argument she had with the Chief. The team was astonished by such kind of behavior from Vanessa, for she was a calm old lady. Richard suspected that there was more to the story than it met the eye, but the most important step was to find Vanessa alive and well. Tim said that the Grimsborough Lake was a famous place with breath-taking view, and had a fascinating history and legend said that a "Creature of the Lake" lived in it. He suggested that it was a likely place for Vanessa to be. Since the team had no leads, they started their search from the lake.

There was no evidence that Vanessa was at the lake, but the team stumbled upon a dead body - that of fisherman Floyd Russel. He seemed to have been suffocated to death, and autopsy agreed with that hypothesis. After a while, Vanessa came back to the office, ashamed of what she did. Later, Dallas visited the lake, only to be attacked by the creature of the lake. It was discovered that James Savage was the creature who did this to protect the nature as tourists came and littered the place/ He was arrested for assaulting a police officer but Dallas decided to let him go after the killer was arrested.

The Killer was revealed to be Victor Wollcraft, a scientist who invented a machine that could fish easily. The team thought that he killed Floyd due to his threats but then Victor revealed that he had ideas of a great shopping mall which would be built in the lake. That mall would have all the futuristic stuff, but Floyd disliked the idea. Victor told the team that he would have to remove the lake and use its water as a fuel to run the mall, which potentially could create many pollutants. Floyd tried to sabotage his plans, so he killed him. The Judge was disgusted at the idea, saying that it was the reason aliens would invade the Earth and sentenced Victor to life imprisonment.


Vanessa's late husband, Tayler Nash.

The chief wanted the player to accompany him to ask Vanessa where she went. Vanessa was in the comic shop or as she told, so the team went there. A newspaper article detailing the theft of an antique stone about 10 years ago was found, and Tim told the team that the thief was a certain Tayler Nash. He did some digging and he was the late husband of Vanessa. He also found that a case of domestic violence was registered against Tayler by Vanessa. Tayler committed suicide while in custody. Vanessa told the team that she was in a trance when she registered that report, Tayler was a nice husband and he had reasons to steal the stone, which he hid in the lake. Underwater diving resulted in the team finding an antique chest with Tayler's name carved on it, but inside was a necklace of Elizabeth Hopkins. Elizabweth told the team that the necklace was stolen from her a few years ago.

Dallas wanted to help James, and did so by recovering his husky's picture. James told the team that a person with a weird R tatto stole it from him. Later, Vanessa apologized for the troubles she caused. She told that she didn't want to come to Historical Center as it triggered painful memories, but Chief Frezier told her that the team was with her so she shoud not worry.
