Plot

Astrid and the player went to the valley mansion where an avalanche that included melting snow had flooded the mansion. There, they found the body of Clarke Industries and Berrini News CEO Daniel Clarke, impaled with glass shards and left floating in the floodwaters. Beatriz then told them that the killer smashed his body against one of Daniel’s mansion windows, causing him to be impaled by the shards and left for dead as the mansion soon got flooded. They then found clues inside the flooded mansion as well the victim’s news studio to suspect heiress Maggie Blake, the victim’s wife Kim Clarke and famous lawyer Christian Jackson.

Soon after, Nikolai Rodionov told the team that he had found out about the victim’s properties and that the victim had the mortgage of his old childhood home. At the victim's childhood home, they found clues to suspect aristocrat Lily Dora, as well Judge Yasmine Marrakchi before they found out from beat cop Penelope Hunter that the victim’s wife was crying at the victim’s childhood house and was threatening with a lit match. However they were too late as Kim had dropped the match, setting the house ablaze with fire. After the fire was extinguished, the team quickly searched the burnt house ruins as well finding enough clues to incriminate Lily for the murder.

When the team interrogated Lily, she initially denied the evidence and accusations against her, however she cracked and confessed. She then admitted that she murdered the victim because she wanted to protect what was truly hers. She then revealed that she was the victim's child but her father disowned her after she had a series of failed businesses. She then said that she wanted to prove to him that she could be a successful businesswoman but Daniel didn't believe her, injuring her by pushing her down the stairs. After the “accident”, he locked her in the mansion so she was never being able to leave until she heard about the flood. When she tried to warn her father, he didn't believe her and called her a liar and tried to finish off the job to kill her. Lily then grabbed her father and smashed his head into the mansion window for everything he ever did to her until he was dead. She then broke down crying and admitted that she was sorry for lying but she hoped the flood would wash her actions away. Due to her involvement in the case, Judge Marrakchi sat with Mayor Patricia Osborne, who gave Lily a 10 year sentence.

In the aftermath of Lily’s trial, Kendra suggested that they could investigate the newspaper studio for any information on the two plane crashes and see if there’s any connections between the two or a connection to the yeti. They then investigated Daniel’s newspaper studio and found a stack of newspapers concerning the recent plane crash. Jordan then told them that there was photos of a mysterious monster in the background of some of the photos. The tech expert then told them that a former news reporter turned murderer, Eliot Ryker, who was arrested for murdering his colleague, had made some discoveries about the yeti they were looking for. They then interrogated Eliot in prison, who told them that he would tell them more about the yeti in exchange for a shorter prison sentence. Eliot then told them that he had found some yeti footprints and even a pair of yeti gloves, meaning that someone was pretending to be a yeti in order to scare people off.

They then asked Eliot about the gloves, who told them that he had left it in his locker at the news studio. After they recovered the yeti gloves, they found out from Edward that there was traces of a specific fir tree that grew in a specific region of the district. With Jordan’s analysis of the district, he soon found the wreckage of a plane. Joyed with the news of the first plane crash’s discovery, they then went to see Judge Marrakchi about shortening Eliot’s sentence. Meanwhile, they helped a grieving Kim recover a couple of Daniel’s favourite locket from his flooded house so she could go see Lily in prison. Finally, the team decided that they had to go and see if there was anything to recover from the first plane crash.
