—Case Teaser

Head Hunt is a case featured in Criminal Case, it appears as the forty-ninth case in Explore the World and the one hundred and sixty-third overall. It takes place in Africa appearing as the second case in the region.


Following Akuada Eze's abnormal brain behaviour, Connor told the team to head to Kinshasa to investigate. Upon arrival, Anya informed Bradley and the player that a body had been found down the Boulevard du 30 Juin street. There, the pair found the headless body of oarsman Edosio Adebayo. After hearing Nia's autopsy results, they suspected charity organization representative Aisha Bennet along with poacher Arno Adhiambo and drunkard Dakarai Desta. Mid-investigation, Takagi told the pair that she'd discovered where Akuada had her vaccine.

Takagi directed them to a nearby medical facility where they found reason to suspect benefactor Rosine Nyongo and foreign aid worker Frederic Mathieu. They also discovered that Edosio had been transporting ivory tusks for Arno. As the duo recapped the investigation along the main street, Imran told the team that he'd spotted Dakarai discarding items into the Congo river. The pair stopped Dakarai from discarding a bloody shirt, revealing that he had found the body. He insisted that he only found the body though and was innocent. Finally, they were able to arrest Frederic for the murder.

Frederic tried to deny the accusations but eventually confessed, admitting that Edosio needed to die otherwise his reputation would be ruined. Frederic confessed that Edosio came to the medical facility for a vaccine but soon started accusing Frederic of drugging him. He said that Edosio insisted that he had spells of blinding anger and rage and that he was blaming Frederic for it. On the day of the murder, Edosio confronted Frederic in Kinshasa and demanded the truth. Frederic insisted that he had no idea what Edosio was talking about, prompting Edosio to insist that he was going to the police. Panicked, Frederic took a sword and pounced on Edosio, slicing his head off. In court, Judge Armstrong decided to sentence Frederic to thirty-five years in prison for the murder.

Post-trial, the player and Riya searched the medical facility again. When they arrived back at the facility, however, they found it cleared out. Nevertheless, they searched the area, finding a syringe which they sent to Anthony. Anthony confirmed that the vaccine contained similar ingredients to Drug Ares, revealing it as the perfected version of the hallucinogenic drug. He also confirmed that the drug shut down the brain's control of restraint, leaving the victims' without any self-control. Finally, he was able to identify components of Drug Ares that were similar to the hallucinogenic drug used in the Blackmoor Haven mental institute. The pair soon confronted Peter Hopkins over this, who confessed that he was approached by a figure in white to test out the drug on his patients.

Meanwhile, they also found records of shipments of Drug Ares to the medical facility, which they sent to Takagi. After a while, Takagi confessed that she was able to track who the supplier of Drug Ares was, revealing them to be Lawrence Osborne, an aristocrat the player arrested back in Starlight Shores. Shocked at how Lawrence was out of jail, they spoke to Judge Armstrong, who confessed that Lawrence had been released suspiciously, admitting that she believed it was due to his criminal connections.

After Bradley also helped Spencer hand over his leadership of The Divine Purpose to Aurora, the team reconvened on the plane to discuss their findings. Realizing that Lawrence had to be a member of the Zodiac, Takagi confessed that she'd done some digging and discovered Lawrence was staying at a hotel in Nairobi. Knowing they needed to interrogate Lawrence quickly, they set a course to Kenya.
