—Case Teaser

Food for Thought is a case featured in Criminal Case, it appears as the tenth case in Rusthollow and the sixty-fourth overall. It takes place in Emerald Lagoon appearing as the fourth case in the district.


Jayden and the player went to investigate The Lagoon Creature, a restaurant believed to be affiliated with Inferno, the group who caused the fire of Emerald Lagoon. Upon arrival, a young woman called Aida Sedd reported finding a body, dead at her table. The duo soon found the body of infamous critic Edith Egeria, poisoned. Soon, the killer was identified as Aida.

Aida denied killing Edith at first, before breaking down and tearfully admitting to the murder. She explained that she had discovered Edith was a member of Inferno, those responsible for the arson. Aida tearfully confessed that she had lost her entire family in the fire and blamed Edith and the rest of Inferno for it. Blinded by rage and loss, she slipped poison into Edith's food and watched her die. When she saw the police arrive, she panicked and reported the crime in hopes of misleading the police. In court, Judge Price understood Aida's motivations and sentenced her to 10 years in prison.

After the trial, Faith asked to speak to the player as her brother, Steven Parks was visiting from France and she wanted to throw a "welcome" dinner. The duo went to speak to Mac Cadaveri who confessed that he had lost his secret recipe for the dinner. The pair eventually found it and returned it to a relieved Mac. Steven then arrived and the player and Faith went to meet him.

Jayden and the player also went to confront Percy Matthews about Inferno who told them he knew nothing about them. Eventually, they found proof that Percy had been messaging other members of Inferno about lighting more fires. The duo went to confront Percy but discovered he had gone missing. Finally, they found proof that Percy planned to attend a football match later that day at Callum's university. Warren told Jayden and the player to go apprehend Percy at all costs.
