—Case Teaser

In the Tunnel of Danger is a case featured in Criminal Case as the eighty-eighth case of the game. It is the thirty-fourth case of Berrini and the fourth case in Shadow Corner.


While Luke and the player were wandering the carnival, the former carrying some cotton candy, the detectives were met by a panicking ride operator named Gregory Carlson who told them that he had a body in one of the carts of his Tunnel of Love rides. There, they found the body of gothic student Bella Maddox pierced in the heart with a Cupid's arrow. They then suspected Gregory along with author Christina Mapples and the victim's boyfriend as well the brother of Evelyn Cunningham, Brison Cunningham. They then regrouped when beat cop Penelope Hunter told them that she had saw a cloaked figure fleeing the crime scene.

The detectives then followed Penelope's lead by investigating the games alleyway where the cloaked figure fled, leading them to find out that the cloaked figure was Valentina Knox. They suspected her along with food vendor Vicky Thompson before they learned that Brison had broken into the murder scene. After they found a heartbroken and tearful Brison, they had him escorted into police custody before they found enough clues to incriminate Vicky Thompson for the murder.

When confronted with the murder, Vicky denied the evidence till she was forced to confess to the murder. Vicky told them that she totally loved Bella and was jealous of the relationship between her and Brison. She explained how in the past before she dated Brison, she gave her gifts and confessed her love for her, however she was rejected. When she saw Brison and Bella at the carnival that evening, she got angry and then followed the duo to the Love Tunnel where she shot Bella in the darkness for Brison to discover when the ride ended. Vicky then said that she would then join her lover before she pulled out a knife and slit her throat.

After the shocking arrest, the player then went with Astrid to check on Brison in custody, who was tearful that his lover was killed. Brison mentioned that Bella was investigating something strange with someone which led them to investigate the love tunnel for Bella's satchel. They then searched the satchel to find a journal on the victims of the legend. They then found out (per Jordan) that Bella was investigating the legend with Christina Mapples. Christina then explained that they found that the legend, regardless of what method they used to murder, had carved a strange rune into the remains of the victims.

Soon after, they found the remains of Oscar Carlson in the circus tent that (per Beatriz) was murdered by the legend as the coroner had found the same rune etched into his body like Adrianne and the others. They then informed Gregory of his brother's death before telling Christina of the team's findings. Luke and the player also helped Brison find a spirit board and contact Bella's spirit. Finally, Beatriz told the team that she had found out that asylum doctor Arthur Gullets had autopsied the first two victims of the legend in Switzerland. This lead led Chief Crosby to decide that they needed to go to the asylum and interrogate Arthur at once.
