—Case Teaser

Hell to Pay is a case featured in Criminal Case as the second case of The Mystery Continues. It is the second case set in the Wolf Street district of Concordia.

Plot

Aboard the airship, Isaac introduced himself to the player before receiving a call about a body outside the Wolf Street stock exchange. Isaac and the player headed there and found the body of stockbroker Brad Wazowski with his head bloody and bashed in. Richard confirmed that Brad was killed after his killer smashed his head into the side of the stock exchange statue. They first questioned hot dog vendor Deidre Calhoun who discovered the body before questioning stockbroker Damien Carlisle and banker Tate Steppingstone. George then informed the pair that he and Giulietta had discovered where Brad went before his death.

The player and Isaac followed George to an hidden bar underneath one of the buildings, prompting the pair to investigate the scene. After searching the bar, they added singer Camilla Walsh and bartender Bert Tucker to the suspect list. They were then informed by Giulietta that Deidre was vandalising the stock exchange statue. After confronting Deirdre over her vandalism and placing her in a holding cell, they arrested Damien for Brad's murder.

Damien confessed to the crime and explained that he had gone bankrupt and robbed Brad's house, stealing and selling his possessions. Brad soon discovered what Damien had done, confronting him outside the stock exchange and demanding he turn himself into the police. Damien refused and grabbed Brad, smashing his head into the side of the statue. Furious, Damien started smashing his head against the statue until it killed him. In court, Judge Oakley sentenced Damien to 25 years in prison for theft and murder.

Following the trial, Arthur's wife Bernadine Wright asked to greet the player. She confessed that she had planned a date for her and Arthur at the Forgotten Grotto bar, planning for Camilla to sing Arthur's favourite song. She confessed that she'd lost the sheet with the song lyrics on and asked the player to help her find it. After finding the sheet and handing it to Camilla, Arthur and Bernadine went on their date.

Meanwhile, a bloody and bruised Tate stepped into the headquarters, demanding immediate assistance. He recounted how he had spotted a hooded figure monitoring his bank vault and how he chased them to the stock exchange, where the figure brutally attacked him. Evie and the player quickly headed to the bar to get a first aid kit and tend to Tate's wounds while Rose decided to head with the player to the stock exchange afterwards. After searching the scene, they found a bloody paperweight which they sent to Fleur. Fleur reluctantly informed the pair that she wasn't able to find anything on the paperweight, leaving who attacked Tate a mystery. Finally, Arthur informed the rest of the team that they were heading to the annual Ascroft races to act as security.
