Good As Dead is case 10 of Grimsborough 2 (Industrial Area).


The victim was a man called Adam Christopher (age unknown), he was killed by being beaten with a glass bottle. His killer was Curtis Newman.

At the time of his arrest Curtis stated that he had killed Adam not only due to him stalking Samantha Warner, but because of an argument he started about his job and money. Curtis got very angry with Adam, and punched him. Curtis picked up a glass bottle and smashed it into Adam twice to make sure he was definitely dead.

When Curtis was sent to court, Judge Hall was stunned of how much Curtis wanted Adam dead. She stated that Curtis's motives for killing Adam were poor and irrelevant.
