Plot

After being relocated to Heart Highway to investigate the person who stole Christopher Goodman's possessions, Faith and the player decided to go on a road trip in the vast wilderness of the desert. However, their car soon ran out of fuel stranding them in the desert. Faith told the player she spotted a car in the distance and upon inspection, discovered the body of missing young man Mikey Jepsen in the trunk. Autopsy confirmed that Mikey died due to starvation, so the pair labelled hunger as the murder weapon. The team labelled five suspects: the victim's father Michael Jepsen, truck driver Valerie Steele, victim's aunt Kendra Jepsen, mechanic Ricardo Morag and wilderness survival expert Alaina Wright. The duo soon arrested Kendra for her nephew's death.

Kendra confessed to the crime after being confronted with the evidence. She tearfully admitted that she had been in the early stages of pregnancy before Mikey accidentally crashed his car into her, killing her unborn baby. Kendra further explained that she couldn't forgive her nephew for the accident and was blinded by rage and grief. She recounted how she knocked Mikey out and kept him in her basement, feeding him scraps of food and water so she could watch him slowly wither away. Weeks after she kidnapped him, he died from starvation and she dumped him in the desert where she hoped the heat would decompose his body faster and she would get away with the crime. In court, a shocked Judge Price sentenced her to fifty years in prison for the kidnapping and murder of the teenager.

After the trial, Faith told the player that she was worried about Jayden as he had been acting strangely all day. Eventually, after searching through his bag found out he was hiding out in the desert. When they asked him what was wrong, he refused to say and went back to his home. Meanwhile, the player and Warren headed to the repair shop where Sean was working about him returning to the police force following his dismissal. After finding him, he accepted the offer and headed back to the headquarters. Finally, the player and Warren discussed the violent thief, deciding to investigate the Great Canyon next.
