Aim of the Game Ride or Die

Fresh off the Boat is a case featured in Criminal Case, appearing as the fourth case of the game. It is also the fourth case set in the Daytide Coast district of Pinefield.

Plot

Previously, Li commented on Lucas Tanner's ban for life and on how she located a mysterious ship entering Daytide Coast's waters before Chief Muscare informs the player that Aidan Kavanagh escaped prison during a staged riot with Judge Bloodworth ordering a manhunt on him. Keeping this in mind, Violet wanted to take the player with her to investigate the ship.

After Li sends the coordinates to their tablets, the team arrives at an estuary where a large ship is docked. They take a closer look on the ship, only to find crates of weapons and a bloody murder scene. Violet notices a trail of blood leading off the ship into the exotic waters, prompting the team to investigate using scuba diving gear. Once they got to the bottom, the team found a dead body tied down by cinder blocks with a gaping hole in their face, rendering them unrecognizable. After the team unravels a name tag near the body, they are shocked to discover that the victim is Aidan. Ina reported that the victim was shot in the face with a specific type of gun before having his feet tied down to cinder blocks and left to drown, although he died before he was even in the water.

As the investigation ensued, five characters were flagged as suspects: Genevieve French, a dock worker who held hostility towards Aidan because of his treatment towards her; Celeste Murphy, a cabaret dancer who was trying to protect herself from The Grim Reapers, specifically the formerly imprisoned Aidan because she's the only person with inside knowledge of the gang; Katie Current, a CCN journalist who was revealed to be dating Aidan in order to expose The Grim Reapers but she became paranoid when he escaped and threatened to kill her; Garrett Adams, a mailman who ended up joining the gang and gave Aidan luxuries in prison to assist in his eventual escape; and Laverne Moody, a cranky old fisherman who set up the riot in the prison and claimed Aidan practically went insane once he escaped, meaning he could've put Aidan out of his misery. After confirming the murder weapon to be a harpoon cannon, and investigating the cargo shipdeck and the estuary, the team gathered the necessary evidence to find Genevieve French responsible for the premeditated death of Aidan.

Initially denying involvement, Genevieve admitted to the crime. She says she killed Aidan on her leader's orders before revealing the Grim Reapers insignia tattooed on her right arm. However, Genevieve had her own personal motive which is why the leader handpicked her to carry out the murder. Aidan was passionate about his country and wasn't afraid to look down on others who were of different descent. He didn't treat Genevieve as a human being when they were working together in the gang which subsequently manifested into the driving force behind Genevieve's actions. Also, the leader thought Aidan was foolish to get himself incarcerated on their watch so they thought Aidan was ruining their plans by bringing the gang out of the shadows. Since Genevieve had a reason to kill Aidan, the gang leader sent her to collect the weapons on the ship and kill Aidan when he would arrive, following Laverne's staged riot at the prison. Deeming the dock worker to be contemptible, Violet shipped her off to court.

Judge Bloodworth was saddened once he heard the news of Aidan's murder but admitted some of his time could be spent with his wife Anne rather than filing the paperwork. He was willing to give Genevieve a lighter sentence if she revealed the gang leader. Refusing to cooperate, Genevieve claimed she would be broken out of prison just like Aidan once the revolution starts. Judge Bloodworth said he worked with the prison warden to upgrade the security measures on the Daytide Coast prison and sentence Genevieve to 35 years in jail with no parole possibility.

After the trial, Chief Muscare was worried about what Genevieve said and wanted the team to interrogate Celeste more about what she knows about the gang. Dexter opted to help the player question Garrett since he assisted in Aidan's escape. Violet and the player went to Celeste, who only told them to investigate the ship if they want answers. Once they did, they found a prototype rifle with a set of fingerprints on it. Per Li, the fingerprints belonged to Laverne. He claims the gang is collecting weapons to start the revolution. Violet was curious about this "revolution" but Laverne was stubborn enough to not reveal anymore.

Dexter and the player interrogated Garrett, who refused to say anything. Dexter suggested searching the estuary to find something. His intuition was right as the team found a cryptic map. Per Shane, it shows the locations in Daytide Coast where the gang will strike. He joined the player in pressuring Garrett in the interrogation room. Shane managed to break Garrett into revealing that the gang leader intends to take full control of the district by using the weapons from the ship.

Once that was done, Violet wanted to do one more sweep in the underwater coral. The team were lucky to stumble upon a USB key which contained a lot of information on The Grim Reapers, including their ideology about the Auriga constellation sign and the revolution. Li thinks the gang is more of a cult and identifies the USB key's owner as Katie Current. When confronted, she angrily told the team that since they told her to leave them alone, Katie investigated the gang on their own and was unwilling to help them because she wants to prove her worth as a journalist.

Once everything was taken care of, the player and their two partners all discussed what they learned so far. Chief Muscare quickly interrupted and said someone filed a missing persons report on Celeste Murphy. Right at that moment, a loud crash is heard inside the police station, prompting the Chief to tell the team to see what's going on. Violet, Dexter, and the player go to the evidence room and are absolutely devastated and shocked to see a crashed convertible with a dead body inside and Officer Renee Montoya beside it.
