—Case Teaser

Gold Digger is a case featured in Criminal Case, it appears as the thirty-first case in Rusthollow and the eighty-fifth case overall. It takes place in Cobalt Mines appearing as the first case in the district.


After the discovery that the "The Angel of Justice" had come to Rusthollow, Warren received word that a body had been found down one of the town's gold mines. Faith accompanied the player, due to Jayden attending his cousin's funeral in the Canadian city of Rosenoque, in searching the mine. Upon arrival, they found the body of miner Aengus Flanagan his head bashed in with what was later revealed to be a pickaxe. The team proceeded to question mine owner Jedidiah Toomes, news tycoon Roberto Vaughn and vlogger Aaron Parlour before hearing word that someone was planning to jump off the balcony of a nearby saloon.

The duo rushed to the saloon where they found a woman threatening to jump. Eventually, the pair were able to stop her from jumping and she revealed herself as Kirsty Flanagan, the victim's wife. Afterwards, the team proceeded to suspect saloon worker Albertina Thorn before hearing word that someone had trespassed into the mine. Finally, they arrested Albertina for the murder.

Upon confrontation, Albertina cracked under the pressure and started crying. She admitted that she had killed Aengus but that he deserved it. She explained that her and Aengus were having an affair and one day, she fell pregnant with Aengus' baby. To hide the truth from his wife, Aengus forced Albertina into having an abortion. She explained that she was heartbroken that she had terminated the pregnancy and blamed Aengus for it. Albertina stated that she went to confront Aengus about it, where he felt no remorse for what he had done. Furious, Albertina smashed his head in with the pickaxe next to her. Before the duo could do anything else, the saloon went dark and by the time Faith had turned the lights back on, Albertina's throat had been slit.

After Albertina was killed, Faith and the player searched through the saloon. Eventually, they found a bloody knife in the trash can and collected a blood sample from it. Irene analyzed the blood sample and solemnly told the duo that she found no evidence in the sample sent to her. Warren then required an update from the detectives on the investigation so far. Callum also requested the player's help in finding Aaron, who was Callum's childhood friend. After a while of searching, they found Aaron's backpack outside of the mine he trespassed on earlier. Callum and the player entered the mine and found Aaron filming in a dangerous location. The player confronted Aaron and sent him home. Finally, Jayden returned from attending his cousin's funeral and the player vowed to catch "The Angel of Justice" and restore order to Rusthollow.
