Plot

On a beautiful morning, April Moore and the player decided to patrol the suburbs of Lake Town when the duo discovered the body of neighbourhood youth Sherry Heller, stabbed to death and left for dead on the street. They then found clues to suspect the victim's father and Lake Town sheriff Tyrone Heller, the victim's twin sister Georgina Heller, as well as bus driver Ernest Benetton. They then were informed by Ernest of a fainted woman, who had passed out on his bus.

They then went on the neighbourhood bus, where they found a fainted woman named Gloria Lane and revived her to her senses. They then suspected her after she explained that she had fainted after Tyrone had told her of her neighbour's death. They also found clues to suspect the local family doctor Erik Dupri before Valentina Panzica told them that Georgina and her father were arguing in the sheriff's office. They then stopped Georgina and Tyrone from causing havoc in the office before they investigated the office and the neighbourhood bus again before they found enough clues to arrest Ernest for the crime.

Ernest quickly confessed, admitting that either way he was in trouble with the law. When asked what he meant, Ernest revealed that Sherry had spotted him dealing drugs and alcohol to minors from his bus. When Sherry confronted him, he begged her to keep quiet about it, giving her gift vouchers as a bribe. Sherry, however, refused and planned to tell her father about Ernest's dealings. To shut her up and to evade the law, Ernest pounced while Sherry was walking to the university and stabbed her to death with the switchblade. In court, for drug and alcohol dealing as well as murder, he was sentenced to forty years in prison by Judge South.

Post-trial, Spencer and the player decided to investigate the suburbs once more due to the alarming rise in disturbances. After the pair found a large amount of drugs strapped to the bottom of a manhole cover, the duo spoke to Ernest in prison again. Ernest confessed that he had acquired the drugs from an anonymous source, who told him to spread the drugs and send the money back to them with Ernest keeping a share of the profit. They then went back to his bus and confiscated the drug money.

After helping Tyrone and Georgina reconnect following their argument, the team reconvened back at the station to discuss the developments. The team then set their focus on catching those behind the drug operation in the district, setting their sights on the nightlife of the sleepy lakeside town.
