—Case Teaser

Into the West is a case featured in Criminal Case, it appears as the first case in Rusthollow and the fifty-fifth overall. It takes place in Rootwell Ranch appearing as the first case in the district.


After arriving in Rusthollow, inspector Jayden Chase greeted the player and welcomed them to Rusthollow. Jayden told the player that they should get back to the headquarters, to meet the rest of the team. On the way there, Jayden and the player discovered the body of personal trainer Scott Bristow, his head bloody and smashed in. After the victim was autopsied by the coroner, Melissa Ryser, it was discovered that the killer drinks protein shakes as there was traces of the substance on the victim's wounds. They also found out that the killer uses hand weights after Irene Watson, the dramatic head of forensics, and her son Callum Watson, Irene's lab intern analysed the murder weapon.

After investigating both the town entrance and the victim's gym, Jayden and the player were able to interrogate three people: Reginald Cruxely (the victim's doctor), Chantelle Taylor (the victim's client) and Dwayne Higson (a fellow bodybuilder). At the end of the chapter, Jayden and the team were told by Sean Bailey, the Rusthollow Justice Division's informant, that a fight had broken out in a local tavern.

After arriving with Jayden to the tavern, they found Chantelle fighting with waitress Serena Hutchins. Chantelle threw a glass at Serena's head before Jayden ad the player intervened and asked them what had happened. Chantelle enraged, fled the scene. Deciding to speak to Serena, she explained that Scott was her boyfriend and Chantelle had just ran in and started accusing her of being the other woman in their relationship even though Chantelle and Scott were not dating. The team also suspected Amy Bristow, Scott's mother. At the end of chapter 2, Jayden and the player heard word that Dwayne was in the tavern and was going to kill himself. It was also discovered in chapter 3 that Scott was cheating on Serena with Dwayne. The player also met Tao Xiang, the fun-loving analytical tech expert. Eventually the team incriminated Amy for her son's murder.

When asked why she did it, Amy denied involvement saying she never hurt her son or anyone. When finally admitting to the crime, Amy stuttered that Scott was at her home but she didn't think it was Scott and was struggling to remember anything. At that moment, Shane Chapeler (the teams profiler) stepped in and told Jayden and the player that he believed Amy was suffering from severe memory loss. After helping her through the interrogation, she explained that that Scott entered her home using his key in the early hours of the morning. Amy forgot who he was and assumed him to be an intruder, so she grabbed the exercise weight and started hitting him with it until she remembered that it was her son. Devastated, Amy panicked and dumped his body at the town entrance hoping people would assume a hitchhiker killed and got rid of all evidence. At the trial, Judge Price had sympathy for a devastated Amy and decided hat prison was not the best place for her, and should instead be sent to Edgewater Mental Institute where she could receive help.

During All the Rough Diamonds, Shane requested to check up on Dwayne to see if he was alright after Scott's death due to his previous suicidal thoughts. After searching the gym with Shane, they found holiday tickets as Scott had planned for him and Dwayne to go on a trip to the Bahamas. Handing the tickets over, Dwayne thanked the player and Shane and went on the holiday.

Also, Jayden suggested that the player and him suggested that they go for a celebratory drink to celebrate a successful case. After noticing a torn flyer, Jayden and the player pieced it back together to reveal a party invitation as Jayden had organised a surprise "Welcome to Rusthollow!" party for the player.

The Chief of Police Warren Gate also wanted to see the player in action and told him that he had on purposefully hidden his pocket watch to see if the player could find it. The player and Warren travelled to the town entrance where Scott's body was found to look for the pocket watch. After finding the object, Warren congratulated the player and told them that they will make a great addition to the team.

At the end of the case, Jayden celebrated a successful first case and said that they would solve many more to come.
