—Case Teaser

Greed is Death is a case featured in Criminal Case as the thirteenth case of Patriot City (Season 1) and the thirteenth case overall. It is the first case to take place in Stock Area of Patriot City.


The team arrived at the Stock Area to meet the mayor of Patriot City. When Mayor Pecker was about to finish their conversation, one of Pecker's bodyguards tell them that someone was shot outside The Patriot Bank. Courtney Rivers and the player head to the bank, where they found Vince Mew shot in the back. The pair added Mayor Nathan Pecker, bank teller Madison Leland and card dealer Frankie Paisley on their suspect list before returning to the station. When they got back to the station, Madison called the team, saying the manager's here.

The pair then talk to the bank manager Christina Walkins, who told them that Vince usually steals their money once a week. After Christina heard a gunshot, she hid under her desk and called the police. After interrogating Christina, the pair then investigated a nearby tailor shop and added the victim's brother Mario Mew to the suspect list. When they told him about his brother's murder, he was shocked, telling them that Vince was the best brother. Mario then excused himself to cry in his car.

After interrogating Mario, the pair found out that the victim was a spy. Nathan knew he was a spy, Vince tried to kill him by shooting him, but failed. Vince was in love with Madison, but Madison rejected him for being too greedy. Soon after, Frankie called them to inform them that someone is trashing the casino.

The pair immediately head to the casino, where they found Mario and Frankie arguing about Frankie stealing Vince's money. The pair then calmed the two and question Frankie. Frankie admitted that he stole the victim's money because Vince was cheating in the games. The pair then head inside the bank to find more clues. After investigating the inside of the bank, the pair interrogate Christina about her arguing to Vince for his actions. Christina was infuriated with the victim after Vince was flirting with one of her workers. Mario revealed that he was adopted and his brother did not like him. The pair found enough evidence to arrest Vince's brother for the murder.

Upon admitting the murder, Mario revealed that Vince tried to make him a spy. After Mario graduated college, Vince asked him to take him to work. When they stopped at Vince's destination, Vince told him to join him as a spy. Mario ignored him and drove back to his home. After remembering his brother being a spy, he confronted him about quitting his job and work as his partner at his tailor shop. While Mario confronted Vince, Vince was disgusted and being a spy will help him grow his stealth mode. Angry by his opinion, Mario waited for Vince to leave the bank and shot him outside the bank. Judge Peterson sentenced him to 10 years in prison.

Post-trial, Mayor Pecker congratulated Courtney and the player for arresting Vince's killer. After the mayor congratulated them, the pair decided to investigate the tailor shop, hoping they find clues for the affiliation the victim's working for. While investigating, they found the victim's card in the pile of shirts. The team (per Grover) found out that the victim is working for the Time Resistance, a resistance against time traveling. The pair went to talk to Grover about the resistance. When they asked Grover about the resistance, Grover revealed the resistance would kill him and the time travelers if they are part of the Patriot City Time Travel. Finding out more about the resistance, the pair then head to the bank hall, where they found a broken badge. After restoring the badge, it showed the affiliation's name and an infinity symbol on the center.

Meanwhile, the pair interrogate Mario about the resistance. Mario explained that he didn't believe in time traveling until his brother showed him pictures about the Patriot City Time Travel and the time. Mario also explained that Vince wanted him to kill the time travelers, but refused.

After all the events, Grover tells the team that a famous actor was murdered at Patriot Hills. The team head to Patriot Hills to investigate the hills.
