Get the Finger Out Fashionable Tragedy

Hit the Sack is a case featured in Criminal Case: Pheadmouth. It is the second case set in the city of Pheadmouth and also the second one to take place in the Irish Valley district.


While the player and Chief Vinh were talking about recent investigation about “The Collector”, Chief Vinh got reports of a murder taking place at O’Connell Alley. He then sent Ned and the player to the crime scene, where they found the shirtless body of bartender Jennifer McCarthy, who was hit by a heavy blunt object.

Mid-investigation, Trent told the team that Jennifer had gone to an abandoned church before she was killed, prompting the team to go there to investigate. Later, Ned was attacked by a cat, which turned out to be priest Dermot Mullen’s one. After gaining enough evidence, the team apprehended Jennifer’s ex-boyfriend Seamus Walsh for the murder.

Although Seamus denied his involvement at first and accused Jennifer’s current boyfriend Eamon O’Dowd of murdering her, however, he then confessed all things. He told the team that his unmarried uncle had recently left all of his fortune, including a pot of Irish gold, to him. However, Jennifer accidentally knew the whole things. Seamus said that he heard Jennifer talking on the phone, saying that she wanted to be Seamus’ girlfriend again just to kill him and legally take all the money and gold from him. Being frustrated, Seamus followed Jennifer from her workplace, Happy Irish bar, into O’Connell alley. He then used a sack with rocks to hit her brutally. Judge Park sentenced him to 25 years in prison.

Post-trial, Aiden came to the station with an amputation saw in the evidence bag and informed the player that someone had broken into the morgue and took Jennifer’s body part, from her neck to chest, however, they left Jennifer’s middle fingers. The team then found strange substance on the saw, which (per Camilla) was actually dirty water from O'Connell alley sewers, prompting the team to search the alley. There, they found a bloody sheet of paper, which turned out to be "The Collector"’s list. After analyzing the blood on the paper, Camilla found out that it belonged to Jennifer and Ryan Patrick, whose middle finger was taken by "The Collector" previously. The team then informed Aiden of “The Collector”’s list and told him to offer more security. Aiden then agreed and told the team that he would ask for his friends’ help to improve the security.

Meanwhile, Rosamund and the player went to see the abandoned church the last time before it would be demolished. There, they found some legal documents, which (per Trent) turned out to be real estate buyer Amru el-Ismail's documents. Trent also found out that one of his bank accounts lead to Syria, where there was a terrorist war. Answering about his connections with terrorists, Amru claimed that he was innocent, saying that the team did not have enough evidence to accuse him.

After all the events, Amelie told the team that Pheadmouth Justice Unit's informant Christian Solar had just come back from his trip. The team then decided to keep an eye on Amru and continue investigating "The Collector".
