In the City of Lights is the sixtieth fanmade case of the Criminal Case: Mystery Series. It is also the second in Europe and the World Edition.

Case Background

Towards the end of the previous case, Scott Archer and the player found that Teresa Castilho was in danger in the city of Paris, so Chief Alexander Moore sent Scott and the player to France. When they reached Paris, Teresa called them saying that she was investigating a private party organized by Jean-François Gardet, a very well known thief. Since the party was happening in the top floor of the Eiffel Tower, Teresa went there to investigate. While she was investigating, a dead body fell from the Eiffel Tower forcing her to stop her investigation and call in the player's help.

The victim's ID proved that the victim was a certain Marie-Claude Gardet, who was Jean's wife. Later in the case, with the help of the forensics team, they learned that she was secretly also a professional killer. Marie's killer was later revealed to be the Eiffel Tower supervisor, Stuart Baptiste. At first, Stuart said that he never killed Marie, but once Teresa and the player showed the evidence, in which then Stuart confessed to the crime.

Stuart was a very protective person in relation to the national heritage so when Jean organized the event at the Eiffel Tower, Stuart had a flashback of how Jean's other events in the Louvre and the Sacre Coeur ended in pure destruction. So to save the Eiffel Tower's dignity, Stuart tried to push Jean off but failed, pushing Marie off the tower in his place. Judge Chambers said that supervisors were supposed to help protecting the Tower, not murdering them. So the judge gave him a sentence of life in jail with a chance of parole in 50 years.

In Secrets of a Dead Europe 2, the team found out from French historian Christopher Boutroux that a man only known as The Burning Eagle was the mastermind behind the murders of King Charles Barret and the thief's wife. The team was afraid that new murders could come from this evil mastermind so they talked to the thief Jean-François about the Eagle in exchange for immunity from his crimes throughout the case. In the end of the case, the team found that the Burning Eagle was planning a massive riot in Amsterdam sending the team to a new location, the Netherlands.
