Just a Mortal Experiment is a case featured in Criminal Case as the third case of the game. It is the third set in the Stardom Inlet district of New Cresthill.


A week after arresting the killer of one of the most beautiful ladies of Stardom Inlet, the player arrived at the station to be informed that Rogelio had left to the party a few hours ago. At that moment, he called Charlotte and explained that the electronic devices were forbidden inside, however, before explaining more, some voices appeared and the call ended. Thinking the worst, the Chief sent Xavier with the player to find him. They decided to enter by the back door, where they found him inside a trash container. After he left it, the door opened abruptly and people started running away because of a cadaver inside. Hara decided to help with the investigation until some clue might need his analysis.

As soon as they entered, they found Viewtube blogger, Daniel Lynch, beaten with an empty and bloody eye socket. They suspected of Shane Kalupa, Moonshine Hearsay Host, Romeo Becquer, a Viewtube critic and Elizabeth Abad, the victim's girlfriend. Then, while Xavier and the player were returning to the station, they noticed that Lynch's girlfriend and another woman were fighting in the middle of a big crowd.

After dispersing the crowd and soothing the two women, they added Mina Contard, a Viewtube blogger and the one who was fighting with Elizabeth and, Anne Smith, a Viewtube cover artist. Soon, they found that Daniel denounced Shane of invasion of privacy and that Elizabeth's social media was full of death threats because of her relationship with a "women abuser". At the end of the chapter, Charlotte and Rogelio came with news about the one that started the rumor of Lynch's macho behavior.

The responsible was Mina, Rogelio found some smeets that hinted that she was suffering from domestic abuse when she was Daniel's girlfriend, but Charlotte analyzed all of her activity in social media and discovered that it was a lie. When Mona, who replaced Xavier at the end of chapter 1, and the player confronted her, she responded that the police was lying and was attacking her rights. Also, they learned that Romeo's channel lost subscribers after the victim stated that he drove under the influence of alcohol in a video and that Daniel refused to pretend a romance with Anne because she considered herself as the bee's knees. After getting enough evidence, the team arrested Romeo Becquer for Daniel's murder.

Despite his explanations and intimidation attempts, he confessed in a rage attack. After the beer incident, Romeo planned to destroy Daniel's weak reputation. Taking advantage of Contard's accusations, Becquer uploaded a video where he "interviewed" a girl abused by Lynch. At first, the community believed him but then, Daniel responded with a video showing several proofs that it was a dirty lie. He decided to erase Lynch' smile so when he found him at the party, he grabbed a microphone for electrocuting or strangling him, but his plan failed and Daniel almost cried for help. Panicked about it, he beat him constantly with it and finished introducing the measurement microphone in his eye. Judge Fraire sentenced him to 30 years in jail.

In the aftermath, video game developer, Kará Nuclei arrived at the station asking for help to avoid a brutal ending for her release. Evan decided to help her with the player after hearing that she received two chess' kings, but she lost them when she was looking for the player. When the duo was investigating the dance floor, they found a marble king with half of a message; then, when they were near the snacks table, they found glass pieces, which restored formed a glass king. Placing the two kings together, they read a warning to "protect at all costs the big salmons". They returned to inform Kará about the message, which she connected to some guests from big companies. Evan promised Kará that the police will keep safe her event.

In the second part of the AI, Charlotte asked the player to accompany her to check how was Elizabeth Abad. She was stressed about a poem that she lost when the murder happened. Woods and the player found a piece of it in the liquor store, it had some blood over it that, after some examination, resulted to be Shane's. When they confronted him about it, he gave the rest knowing that he was defeated. Elizabeth was happy when they returned Daniel's poem to her. After helping both of them, Evan told the Chief about the promise that he made to Kará. Surprised by the fact that he offered the police's help without asking first, she decided to send him and the player to comply with Evan's promise at Eternally Fraternal's release.
