—Case Teaser

If You Cry, I Scream is a case featured in Criminal Case as the eighty-fifth case of the game. It is the thirty-first case of Berrini and the first case in Shadow Corner.


Days after the team arrived in Shadow Corner to investigate the totem's predictions of a "merciless monster" in the district, Luke, Astrid and the player were out on a coffee break when they walked into the town's square, where Luke saw the body of his sister Adrianne Leon-Mathieu and burst into tears. A saddened Astrid then asked Imani to take care of Luke while they investigated the murder. Beatriz sadly did the autopsy and said that the victim was slashed and committed into a witchcraft ritual post-mortem. They then found clues to suspect grave digger Henri Gaspar, prophet Dana Maddox and her younger sister, gothic college student Bella Maddox. They then were informed by Luke that he had found out the victim's last whereabouts in a forest just outside of town.

The team then headed to the forst where they found clues to suspect strange man Evan Du Clark and supposed witch Natasha Tomlingson before they investigated the victim's office again. It was later when the detectives were reviewing the case when they were faced by a suicidal Luke, who explained that he had no one anymore as his sister was gone and his parents not in town as he had a gun to his head. After Edward and Jordan consoled Luke to put the gun down and comforted him, the player and Astrid then went on to find enough evidence to arrest Dana for the murder.

Dana confessed to the murder right after Astrid confronted Dana about doing a ritual on Adrianne's corpse post-mortem. This led to Dana explaining that Adrianne was the right choice to sacrifice for the legend. When Astrid asked what Dana meant by sacrificing Adrianne, Dana explained that in order for the legend to be pleased and to start killing again, she had to kill someone with a scythe under a statue of a symbol of the spirits and do a witchcraft ritual. Upon deciding that Adrianne was the right choice, Dana asked her to visit her at sundown, pounced on her and slashed her body with the scythe before committing to the ritual and fleeing the scene, hours before they would find the body. In trial, Judge Marrakchi thought it was appropriate for the killer to be sentenced to life in prison.

After the trial, the player received photos of Summer and Lucas "Major" Redmoon with their newborn child, Marie Crystal Redmoon. Soon after, Astrid suggested that they talk to Bella as her sister was a killer. Bella told them that she heard rumors about a legend looking for revenge on the district. They then investigated the town square where they found a letter written to Dana in her handbag. They then sent it to Raj who determined the letter to be written by the legend according to the request of "committing murder" for the honor of the legend's rising. They also asked Evan after Jordan had found his prints on the letter. However Evan merely explained that he had found the handbag and searched it for money before ditching it at the square.

Meanwhile, Berrini PD beat cop Penelope Hunter reported that she saw Luke shooting rounds in the forest. They then searched the forest, where they found Luke's gun. Jordan soon examined the fingerprints the player revealed on the gun and matched it to Henri, who explained that he had tried to stop Luke from shooting any more rounds. They then found Luke and told him that they would find the legend and avenge his sister. At the end of the case, Bella told them that they could look for clues in Crestwall Asylum as rumors of the legend's doings lay there.
