In These Murderous Times is a case featured in Criminal Case as the Twentieth case of the season as well the Twentieth case overall. It is featured as the second case set in the War of the Roses district of Parinaita.


After arriving in 1456, Knox and Hatty where complaining, quite loudly, about their school life. They were outside the time machine and they were captures by the Lancaster army and taken to a jail cell, after a few hours. They are shouting at each other about who got them captures. At that point, Edward, who was in a Lancaster army outfit, came and told them to shut up and that he had to wear an army outfit to get in, which he was greatly offended by. The team escaped the cell and went to hide in Prince's tower before finding the dead body of the prince protector, Merak Wood, with a massive hole in his chest. They got to work and filed the woman, Susan Facki, Tax collector, Aaron Xoilin, and finally the Duke of York, Richard Plantagenet, as suspects in the case. They then got the results and regrouped in the time machine, Knox and Hatty feeling stupid for getting captures. After telling the team everything, The prince ran into the time machine, scared for his life and said that a monster was running after him.

They questioned the prince about the monster that he saw but he couldn't reveal it out of shock, they then went to The Forest of Fire and found a clue that lead to them making Woman of leisure, Alice Winchester, a suspect in the murder investigation. After talking to her, they found out the murder weapon was a futuristic laser cannon ball. The team then rejoined in the time machine and they talked about how the laser cannon got into the War of the roses, suddenly, red lights came on in the time machine and a woman and man in blue hoodie and bandannas came onto the screen and revealed that the time machine was now under control of the Time Reversers and they wanted their laser cannon back!

After the team managed to convince the Time Reversers that they would get their laser gun back after the murder was solved, the Time Reversers left them alone. After getting all the clues they needed, they arrested Alice Winchester for the murder of Merak Wood.

They went to question Alice about the murder. Alice said that she didn't murder anyone and was annoyed by the team's baseless accusation, the team then told her everything that proves that she was the killer, in a fit of rage, she admitted to the murder saying that someone gave her the strange cannon, when ask who this person was, she didn't know because their face was covered up, she didn't understand why she got the cannon until a few days later where the victim and her got into a fight over the cannon and then it shoot a strange light cannon ball right through his chest. Realising it was an accident, the team send her to be sentence. Not going to the trail as they all needed sleep but after they had their sleep, the team found out that Alice had been sentence to 20 years in the tower of London.

After the arrest, the team were in the time machine when the Time Reversers returned and asked for the laser cannon, the team agreed but the Time Reversers revealed that they wanted Edward and the player to give it to them and then Prince Rupert wanted answers from something.

They talked to the prince about what was going on, he revealed that someone had broken into his room and had trashed it. They went there and found the place ruined but could find nothing missing, just a broken glass tablet, which they repaired and gave to Jessica to analyse. They then got news that the tablet belonged to a Jacob Geloilafama, Knox seemed happy to hear that they had found their historian and they went to talk to him. Jacob was somewhat confused how his chief and friends made it to the War of the roses and thanked them for finding him. Knox then took Jacob inside, not saying another word.

Edward told the player about his plans to give the Time Reversers the laser cannon but admitted that he misplaced it while watching the fire in the forest. Edward and the player found the laser cannon and unlocked it, after that, Edward analysed it and then showed the player the working time machine. They then went to the prison cell and found a note for then. After uncovering the writing, they found out that the Time Reverser wanted to meet them on the York battlefield. They went there and found the male from before, who name was Anubis. He asked for the cannon and Edward gave it to him and Anubis thanked them and gave them a letter and a badge and some clothes and told them to read the letter before revealing that another agent will be waiting for them in 1459. Edward thanked them and opened the letter. In the letter was a note saying "Bar 31, Hall Street, Ottoman-Egyptian empire" and another note saying "Don't show this note to your team, this will be our little secret. I don't trust your team but I feel I can trust you. May Ra show you the light". A little confused, they went back to the time machine.

When the team got back, the team recapped the case and they hoped that the Time Reversers didn't try and threaten them again. Edward and the player then said that the team could go to 1459, not trying to give away that the Time Reversers told them to go there and the team agreed and The team made their way to 1459!
