They then confronted William about the murder, and the bon vivant denied the accusations against him till April forced him to confess following the evidence. He then revealed that he murdered Mayor Moonlight because the Crimson Eye ordered him to. He then told them that the Crimson Eye was paying off the loan sharks for his brother, but in return, the criminal organization demanded that William shoot and kill Mayor Moonlight or the payments would stop. Scared of what would happen if he refused, knowing the loan sharks were violent, William then shot the Mayor dead in his office after slipping past Jordan, hoping that the police would accuse the mayoral aide. He then pulled out a gun and confessed with tears in his eyes that the Eye had one other demand. If the police discovered he was the killer, he would have to shoot himself through the mouth so he couldn't talk. He then told them that the Eye promised to uphold the payments if William went through with everything before he attempted to shoot himself, but April shot him in the hand, preventing William's death sentence. Judge South then considered the crimes William did, and had William extradited to his home city of modern Ravenedge and sentenced to twenty years there so the Eye wouldn't kill him.
After six cases, the mastermind of Idris's murder, politics professor Urgence Farrington, would be arrested for his crimes with the Crimson Eye.
