Give Your Heart a Break is a case featured in Season 1 of Criminal Case, appearing as the 21st case of the game. It takes place in the Fario University, a district based in Fario.


Phillip approached the team and inform then that blond girl is murdered in the University Love Park. When the team searched the scene they found Cheerleader Rita Fernandez dead with her chest open and missing heart. The player found her (Squashed) heart in the pile of leaves.

After the autopsy, Andre said that victim didn't die from blood loss like the teams first guess. Actually, a murder weapon was benzodiazepine, a strong psychoactive drug who if always had side effects and an overdose can cause a pulse to drop drastically and stops the heart activity. But also Andre found and traces of orange juice on her wound on the chest, but because the victim did have any traces of orange juice in her organism, that means that killer has.

Later on, Elvin came to the station and said that Stella's phone was activated after over an hour of inactivity in a cave near campus.

The team didn't found Stella in the case but while they did that and searching for Rita's killer, Rita's lover Linda tried to kill herself and later when the team calm down her she said that Rita never loved her as her and however she wanted to prove her love Rita just wanted a bedtime with her and nothing more. When the player found bloody gloves in the victim's backpack and when Karen analyzed it was proved that the blood was from Rita and Stella, which answer is that Rita's killer is also and Stella's kidnapper, but her blood on the gloves was a sign that they need to find her fast. Meanwhile, the team found and cheese knife which is proved to be used to cut Rita's chest and cut her heart as well.

When Diego and the player got enough evidence, they were ready to arrest Rita's killer. They arrested Rita's lover Linda Thunderman for the murder. She could now stand the pressure and on the start confessed a crime, but she said that she don't know why she killed her. She started to remember a little fight they had in the classroom before Rita left. She said that at that time she got a video call and after that, she picked a benzodiazepine and a bottle of water from First Aid and from cantine a cheese knife and told Rita to come at the Love Park. After that, she could not remember anything. Due to unclear things in her confession, and with Chief Rust negotiating with Judge York, Court decided to freeze a case for one day. That gave the team one day to found who is behind all of this.

The team interrogated Linda again to find more about the video call, but Linda told them that she lost her phone after the murder she committed. Diego and the player searched murder scene again and in Lost'n'Found box they found her phone. Per Elvin person who sends the video call was Dave Hernandez. When the player and Diego arrested him he tried to deny everything but later confessed saying that murder of Rita was just a start of "masterplan". When Diego asked him why Rita he replied that Rita knew more then she should. A trial was repeated and Dave has sentenced o life in jail, while Linda was sentenced to 5.

Meanwhile, Phillip Haskell approached the team and told them that she has a tip about missing Stella. He said that his friend, photographer, accidentally took a pic of the crime scene and caught Stella in the background. When the team searched a crime scene, they found her scarf with DNA on it. Per Kim, DNA belongs to Dean Leroy Paul. He said that he didn't saw Stella since the death of her brother but he said that his DNA could end there because she forgot her scarf in his office before her brother was murdered. 

While exiting the school, Elvin calls the player and told them that Stella's phone is active again in the Lockers room. Diego and the player ran there and found Stella, badly injured. The Ambulance came quick and she was sent to the surgery. Next to her was a letter wrote by blood. Analyses confirmed that the blood is from Samantha Leonard. How the letter said Diego and the player get ready to go to the University roof and save Samantha.
