Ill Wind is the twenty-first case in Starlight Shores and the sixth one situated in the La Mirada district.


Previously, it was announced that Hurricane Beverly had hit La Mirada and had destroyed a street on the outskirts of the district. The chief decided to send Alice along with Linda and the player as she was able to track the Hurricane's movements. Once they had arrived, they discovered the body of Dylan White, famed storm chaser. At first Linda thought he was killed by the hurricane until Alice noticed strangulation marks on his neck. Malcolm confirmed he was strangled by a thin rope most likely.

During chapter 1, Dana Westcott (scientist working for Omega Labs), Chloe Carver (fellow storm chaser) and Oswald Clover (owner of the farm Dylan, his lodger, was killed in) were suspected for the murder. At the end of the chapter, Alice informed you that hurricane Beverly had caused havoc at the Parade Preparations.

During chapter 2, the player suspected Niall Fowler (another scientist working for Omega Labs) and Melanie Pakeman (shamed singer) for the murder. They also discovered that Oswald wanted to evict Dylan from his farm and Chloe was jealous of his successful career. At the end of the second chapter, the player and Linda discovered that hurricane Beverly was heading straight for them.

In chapter 3, it was discovered that Dylan pulled a prank that backfired which resulted in Melanie losing her voice before a lice concert, subsequently ending her career. It was also discovered that Dylan had faked a famed photo supposedly taken by him, and he was threatening Niall Fowler after Dylan had discovered he was selling Omega Labs secrets along with George Bayron to Dayiu.

In the end, the team arrested Oswald for Dylan's murder. He explained that Dylan was always being cruel and playing childish pranks that often backfired. He further explained that Dylan had known the hurricane would have directly hit his farm but decided not to tell him, Oswald found out and was enraged, grabbing a wire and strangling him. He was sentenced to fifteen years in jail with a chance of parole in five years.

In the AI, Andrew requested your help as he had received a distressing call from Dana, his girlfriend. He said she mentioned being at the farmlands and so they investigated there, after finding Dana she explained that her house had been destroyed in the hurricane so Andrew said she could live with him. She also lost her bracelet and requested the player's help in finding it.

Also, the player and Linda went to Niall to see if he had any information of Omega Labs seeing as he was George's accomplice. He explained that Omega Labs are extremely dangerous and are working on something, but he doesn't know what. He told them where the other research facility was located, by the docks with most of it underwater. He told them that they would have to find another way into the facility other than the front door, explaining that there was another way to get in but they would need some scuba outfits. He suggested looking at the Parade Preparations as the theme was underwater.

At the end of the case, Linda and the player went to go to the other facility despite the worsening storm.
