Fruit of the Poisoned Tree (Case #13) is the thirteenth fanmade case and is the third one in the Palm Beach district by Tuttifruttichaitea.

Case Background

The player and Sabrina Miller went to the a house of a deceased old woman who had been murdered. Shortly after arriving to the old woman's house, they were able to identify the victim as Stacie Coulson an old woman who had appeared as a suspect before. They were later able to incriminate the killer as none other than the victim's personal assistant Stuart Templeton.

When Sabrina and the player came to arrest Stuart, he had put a gun to his head and said that he would commit suicide, but not before telling his motive. Stuart had used to live in an old village many years ago. He had killed a woman and a child in that village with a poisoned apple and fled when the villagers had found out that he was a murderer. He then moved to Campbell City and worked hard to get to his position. Somehow, Stacie had found out that he had been involved with the murder of a woman and her child, and he knew that he had to kill her. He then said that he had served the victim pumpkin soup drugged with an overdose of Stacie's medicine that had enough to knock her out, enacting Stacie as the fruit with poison. Then, during the night, he had hung her during the night and shot her with a flare gun. He then said that he would make a fourth and final person lose their life, himself. After his final words, Stuart shot himself.

After these events, the victim's daughter, Courtney Sandler, came to the team. She said that since majority of her family was either deceased or in jail, she would like to find her father. After looking at the community center the victim went to, the team was able to discover that the name of the father is Chandler Coulson. In an unfortunate twist of events, with the help of Martin Adder, the victim's landlord, they had found out that there were 5 people who had helped to make the deadly disease, and that Chandler was part of the group of 5. When they had told the news to Courtney Sandler, she was devastated, but said that she would move back to Big Rock and work on making another book.

The team was talking about who the other 4 people who created the disease could be. Just after the conversation had started, the team had received a phone call that scientist Douglas Vane had been found dead.
