Mismatched Pieces Truth of the Matter
The team's walking straight into a trap, where The Tinted Trader has a clear message for the team, in the form of a molten crown on a man's head. How did this man cross The Tinted Trader, and who poured the gold?


Into Molten Gold is a case featured in Criminal Case, appearing as the nineteenth case of the game. It is the nineteenth case set in the city of Crimsonden and also the fourth one to take place in the Spanish City district.


The team went to the gold factory, and into the trader's trap, only to find a burning body. Nicholas put out the fire on the body, only for the team to find Owen Wheatley, a factory worker dead. The team decided that Allison and the player should investigate the case. The detectives started investigating to suspect Zoey Danielson, a factory worker, who said that Owen was her boyfriend, and that he was involved in shady stuff to make money for her and himself. The team also suspected Ron Donalds, a business magnet, who said that the victim was just a worker, and he wouldn't shed tears on a worker. The team also suspected Kurtis Tyson, a male model, who said that the factory was being used for the lava collection of Allen's designs. The team also found out that the killer wears gloves and drinks wine, before learning another one of Allen's models had come to the station.

The detectives went to the station, where they were greeted by Charlotte Weaver, one of the models for Allen's show who said that Owen had tried to make moves on her, and that she had reciprocated until she learned he had a girlfriend, and also gave the detectives a key and said that Owen had given it to her to his "house", but it seemed more likely to be a spare flat. The team used the key to enter a building on the other side of Spanish City, and suspected a private detective Adam Bourne who was investigating The Tinted Trader, and also found that the killer hunts. The team also learned Ron had tried to reduce the victim's pay but the victim had led a worker's revolt and that Tyson had tried to decorate the gold factory, but Owen screamed at him. Allison and the player talked about the investigation, before they heard voices inside the factory.

Allison and the player entered the factory to find Ron talking with a hooded figure. The hooded figure ran as Ron tried to explain but failed miserably, as he was arrested in criminal suspicion. The team also found out that Zoey disapproved of whatever work Owen was doing, mainly because she was suspicious that Owen was cheating on her. They also learned that Adam had tried to bribe the victim for him to spill if he knew anything about The Tinted Trader, but the victim kept quiet. Finally, it was revealed that Charlotte had gotten pregnant due to Owen, and had to get an abortion to save her career, because Owen refused to be in the baby's life... After all the clues were added, the killer was revealed to be Kurtis.

Allison and the player confronted Kurtis about the murder. Kurtis kept denying the murder, saying he was just here to get paid, until Allison brought up if Kurtis killed Owen because of the decorations, and Kurtis laughed saying that it was stupid of the detective to think that, and that he was working for The Tinted Trader. Allison looked shocked, and Kurtis told them The Tinted Trader was planning on capturing team members later. Kurtis also said that the fashion show was a cover for the drugs and Owen had found that out, and that Charlotte was also involved with the trader. Allison tried to arrest Kurtis, but Kurtis said that he wouldn't be arrested so easily, before pulling out a gun, and shooting Allison in the arm, and mocking that another arrest attempt would be a shot to the head before leaving, as the player brought Allison to Ian, Nicholas and Corinne for treatment.

Allison and the player went to Ian, Nicholas and Corinne, where they asked the player to bring medical supplies from the private office, Nicholas going with the player. Nicholas and the player found a bottle of medicine in the private office, but they also found an old gun, with a broken picture frame. The detectives pieced together the picture frame to see two young girls, with their parents. Nicholas sent off the picture to Joel, who after analyzing said that the picture was Allison with her younger sister Maria Buchanan. The team asked Allison about her parents and her younger sister, before Allison burst out crying. After a few hours, Allison came back saying that the name brought back memories, saying that her parents and her sister had died in the gang wars, and that she had to learn to accept their deaths, and move on.

The team then talked about what was happening to Kat before Vicky came in and said that she had hidden some evidence in the gold factory which she thought could help Kat's case. Louis and the player went to the factory to find a security camera, which was broken, and Vicky said she did the best she could. The team repaired the security camera and sent it to Joel, who said that Kat's smoothie was drugged by Ned Eccleston, the tailor. The team tried to reach Ned, but found his shop closed, seeing that he had skipped town. Kat then talked to the team, saying that she had nowhere to go as her parents had disowned her, and Louis suggested that for a temporary time, Kat could stay in his house's spare room. Eleanor also gave Kat an offer, that she could join the Crimsonden Police Force as a detective, to keep her part time job for money, and Kat readily agreed, while Malcolm looked on with a silent glare.

The team then talked that they needed to go to the factory for the trader's trap, and Corinne told the team, that they should visit Lana O'Malley. The team went to Lana, and Lana said why were they here. Corinne asked for Lana to make them some bulletproof vests, so they would at least be a little prepared. Lana reluctantly agreed, saying that she would charge them after the factory trip, and asked for materials from the factory reception which she got. Around 11:30 pm, Lana was ready with the suits, After the suits were done, Corinne kissed Lana said that it was time she gave into her feelings. Lana reciprocated the kiss, and the team went into the factory. The team stood in the factory, as a masked figure dropped a smoke bomb from a upper area they were standing on. The factory filled with smoke, and in the smoke, the figure tackled Lana, and dragged her into the night and Corinne could do nothing but cry and cough...

The next day... Allison ran in the burning town, only to soon find a metal bunker, and broke into it, wearing a plaster on her arm. Allison quickly checked some files very quickly, her eyes falling on one. Allison then took the file, and went outside and called an unknown number, and said "I know why Lizzie Paul died. Come to 24/1, Spanish City now.
