—Case Teaser

Hook, Line, and Sinker is a case featured in Criminal Case as the twelfth case of the season. It is featured as the sixth case set in the Theresa Harbor district of Aetherbourne.


Plot

After receiving news that a body was found by the coral reefs, we immediately proceed to the reefs in hopes to find NightBeard, dead or alive. However, this proves to be to no avail since the corpse found beneath the sea was proven to be our very own weapons expert, Albert Norton.

In the middle of the investigation, we are able to pinpoint the location of NightBeard, who escaped the grasps of the police and imminent death a few days ago. He is not only arrested and put in custody, but is also flagged as a suspect after finding possible evidence that may point to him murdering Albert.

In the end, all the evidence pointed to only one person... Agatha Middleton. Upon asking her why she would do such a thing, she laughs extremely and abruptly stops. She explains that Albert was nothing but a meddler to her plans. It was known that Agatha aided in NightBeard's plans to assault Theresa Harbor, all for good book material. Judge Arceneaux sentenced her to Life in Jail, with no chance of parole

After further investigation, it was concluded that Adelle Norton, the victim's own sister, was an accomplice to murder. Upon interrogating her, it was found that she was not very much aware when she did it. It was known that used a chemical to make her docile and indecisive. The judge, due to Adelle's clear remorse, was put in a psychiatric facility to regain her thoughts.

We find a letter on the boat as we clear it out. It was from ♤, the enigma we've been facing so far. It was found out that they go to St. Augustine University, in Evergreen Plains. We go there to investigate, in hope to find out more about ♤.
