—Case Teaser

Let's Drink to Death is a case featured in Criminal Case as the thirty-fourth case of the game. It is the thirty-fourth case of Rosenoque and also the first case in Justice Banks.


After the end of the gang war in Sandalone Gorge, they followed the payments of money by a member of the Lynch family to the district of finance known as Justice Banks. When Leigh Tempest and the player made their way to a local luncheon, they soon found businessman Fredrick Fontaine poisoned there. They soon suspected businessman Hiram Costington, engineer Jack Chapman and foreign officer Michael McKenzie-Petrov before they were informed by Major that he saw someone running away from the scene.

They tracked the killer's flight to the Old Banks, an ancient sector of the district. Later, Hiram informed the team of a break-in at his townhouse, who turned out to be socialite Gwendoline Fontaine. Despite everything, the team arrested Hiram for the murder. Hiram explained that Fredrick was a fraud and a liar. The victim had accused the Lynch family of being corrupt and he felt insulted by Fredrick's spread of lies that he killed him for his fiancée Kaitlynn Lynch after she asked him to kill Fredrick, revealing Kaitlynn's possible involvement in the murder. Judge Brighton then sentenced Hiram to 40 years in prison.

In the aftermath, Hiram told the team that Kaitlynn gave him a vial of poison in his townhouse. There they found a box of poison vials, which had the fingerprints of internet star Kian Lynch on the outside of the box. He explained that he had merely snooped through his sibling's belongings as a dare once and said that he last saw his sister back at the luncheon. Back at the luncheon, they found her glove which led to the district's forest, where they found and apprehended her. She then recieved a 20 year sentence from Judge Brighton.

Meanwhile Evelyn Cunningham told the team that she found traces of money laundering in the Lynch family's finances. After Jordan Brown and the player found her laptop, Jordan soon found traces of the family's corrupt finances, although they couldn't trace enough proof to make an arrest. The team thanked Evelyn and then they decided to look out for any more connections to investigate on the Lynch family.
