—Case Teaser

Foam at the Mouth is a case featured in Criminal Case as the third case of Stonemoor and the sixty-third overall. It is featured as the third case in Lake Town.


Following the discovery that there was a drug operation in Lake Town, Dustin requested that the player and Spencer investigate the local nightlife for further clues. While out patrolling the streets, they heard from a local police officer, Maxwell Brown, that he'd found a body in a local pub. Upon investigating the scene, they discovered that waitress Henrietta Castral had been poisoned and was foaming at the mouth. The pair first questioned Maxwell on how he found the body before going on to suspect bartender Keith Summers and drunkard Hilda Garza. They were then told by beat cop Todrick Cole that a suspicious individual had been spotted on the main street.

The pair headed to the main street where they found gangster Crescenzio Casazza threatening to fight with a local drunkard. The pair then confronted him before searching the area and questioning boat owner Imogen Dawson. Valentina then told them that Hilda had been spotted getting into a car drunk. They soon raced out in a patrol car and pulled Hilda over, sending her to the station. Finally, they arrested Hilda for the homicide.

They confronted the drunkard about the murder, but she wept, claiming that they were trying to accuse her of the murder because they didn't have enough evidence. However when Spencer showed her all the evidence, she angrily admitted to the murder. Hilda then explained that the victim was very nice to her, until the victim had indirectly caused a car crash that injured Hilda as a victim caught in the crossfire. Believing that the victim had caused the accident to kill her and that she was a snake for doing it, she then devised a plan. She then decided to poison the snake with poison by slipping poison into her ale and offered a drink to God before watching her ingest the poisoned ale. Soon after, Hilda left the pub, leaving Henrietta to die from the poison. Spencer then sent Hilda to Judge South, who thought that a 45 year sentence was appropriate for Hilda.

After Hilda's incarceration, the player and Spencer decided to investigate Main Street again, where they found a bag of drugs with a piece of paper attached. After archivist Valerie Ashworth found out that the drugs were sold to drug dealer Duncan Vansickle, the detectives quickly interrogated him about the drugs. Duncan then explained that he was paid by a hooded man who had asked him to distribute and sell the drugs at the farmer's market. They then found a hooded jacket, in which they found a lighter with a strange emblem that turned out to be from the Italian mafia.

Meanwhile, the player and April Moore went to assist bartender Keith Summers in finding the appropriate ingredients for his best apple cider. They then retrieved some fresh apples for him and gave it to him, allowing Keith to brew them some fresh cider. Soon after, Valentina Panzica told the team that she had followed Duncan and saw him board Imogen Dawson's boat with the drugs. The team then decided to head to Imogen’s boat party to keep an eye on the drugs that will be sold there.
