—Case Teaser

Into the Mist is a case featured in Criminal Case as the twenty-sixth case of the season. It is featured as the second case set in the Misty Isle district of Aurelia.


After solving a brutal murder, the team boarded a ship heading to the mysterious isle. Partway through the journey, when Silvano Macerno and the player were standing on the deck, a loud scream was heard. The duo raced to the other side of the ship and discovered the body of Sid Nelson, his head punctured by an anchor. The team spoke to Maximillian Bentley due to him finding the body, along with suspecting shiphand Tom Quincy and ship captain Gregory Windraker before hearing that Ruth had fallen overboard. After assisting Ruth back on board, the team suspected passenger Henri Gatsby and victim's sister Ina Nelson before being interrupted by Fiona Carraway, saying she had seen a sea monster. Despite Fiona's claims, they arrested Tom for the murder.

The killer then was caught as shiphand Tom Quincy. Tom denied involvement in the murder until confronted with the overwhelming amount of evidence, breaking down in tears and stating he killed the only man he’d ever loved. Surprised, Silvano question Tom about what he meant. Tom explained that he and Sid had slept together one night but Sid refused to come out and told Tom that he meant nothing to him. Tom begged Sid to come out so they could be a real couple but Sid kept refusing. Tom, blinded by rage, grabbed the anchor and threw it into his lover’s head, killing him. At court, Tom was devastated by his actions and pleaded to be sentenced to life in jail for his crime. Via a video-call trial, Judge Rodriguez decided that Tom was filled with remorse and sentenced him to twenty years in jail for the murder of Sid Nelson.

After the trial, the ship suddenly stopped moving and Gregory informed the team that the ship had broken down. With the help of Lydia, the player was able to find a boat gear kit and repair the ship. The pair then found a tablet containing the ship command controls and returned it to Gregory, telling him they're good to go and the ship soon arrived at the ominous island.

Afterwards, Ina told the team that she'd seen Callum rushing off the boat. The pair searched through Callum's possessions and found a note from Callum, explaining that he was heading for his hometown. Lydia and the player then informed Chief Aleiso of Callum's departure, resulting in Florence insisting that the team needed to head to Callum's hometown next.
