—Case Teaser

Know Your Enemy is a case featured in Criminal Case as the eighth case of the game. It is the eighth case of Rosenoque and also the first case in Memorial Avenue.


After Mayor Leonard Oakley had told them of the news about an unidentified arsonist who had struck Memorial Avenue with a giant explosion, he transferred the precinct to the district that mainly surrounded the war torn history of Rosenoque and the home of many war veterans. A couple days after their arrival, Leigh Tempest and the player arrived at the local park named after one of the two of the city's founders, Reginald Oakley, when they found the body of local historian Rhonda Shields shot in the heart.

They gathered clues and suspects when Deputy Mayor Vanessa Clark burst into the department's offices reporting that her home was raided. They soon added her to the list when she claimed that Rhonda's killer was the one who broke into her house. Shortly after, their second interrogation with war veteran (and Vanessa's husband) Andrew Clark was halted when the latter was injured by an unknown person. Later journalist Kendra Currant published the attack and accused the victim having a hand in the attempted assassination. After all the clues were put together, the player arrested Andrew Clark for the murder.

Andrew soon confessed after he was faced with all the evidence. Andrew told them that he knew Rhonda was up to no good, plotting to usurp the peaceful lives of many people. He even saw her following several war veterans, including himself. When a few later showed up dead, he suspected her being the one to kill him, as all the victims was found with a bullet wound in their body. However, when he was nearly killed, he realized he made a mistake and pondered whether he should've handed himself in or not, but was unable due to recovering from the surgery. Judge Brighton was lenient with him pleading guilty on making a mistake and sentenced him to a hospital arrest till he was healed and then he would spend 10 years in prison.

In the aftermath, Kendra insisted that they should look more and she told them that she wrote a list of the killer's victims on a notepad that she left in the park. Upon inspecting the notepad, Jordan Brown confirmed that all victims noted on the pad was killed mysteriously by a gun wound and no other evidence of who killed them. They asked Andrew if he had any knowledge of how he could've been targeted. He told them that he left a surveillance photo in his safe. Upon finding the photo, they noticed a threat to Andrew. They asked private eye Karter Layton if he saw anyone spying on the victims but he said he only noticed the victim's activities.

Weapon expert Jacob Wilson helped the detectives find an explosive detonator near the Clark memorial and according to Jacob's analysis, the type of gunpowder on the detonator matched the explosive shells discovered in the ruins of the houses destroyed in the explosion. Shortly after, the detectives reported to Vanessa Clark, who demanded that they catch the arsonist and the killer so her husband's actions would not be in vain.

After ensuring that Kendra would be discreet and quiet about her investigation, The team continued searching for the killer and arsonist.
