Liberty Before Death is the fifth case in the city of Arlington Heights, created by DiebytheSword. As a result, it is also the fifth case in the first district, Poinsettia Point.

Case Background

Protestor Xenia Swanson was found dead at Poinsettia Point's own Sunshine Bazaar with rather large wounds in her head. Lars' autopsy revealed that the killer spat on her, signaling a heavy grudge between the victim and the killer. It was also revealed that ashes were found in her lungs. Most of the suspects conveyed that they liked the victim, but Julius Caesar Bank CEO Roswell Osborne displayed blatant hate for her. Not only that, but a suspicious character claiming to be a werewolf named Romulus Remus kept sparking trouble throughout the investigation. In the end, neither of the two was incriminated as the killer, who was truly a hippie named Addison Springdale.

Addison initially denied involvement in the murder, but the evidence eventually prevailed. Addison revealed that 18 years ago, a man named Xander Swanson had raped her, destroying her life. Unfortunately, taking care of a child made her unable to finish her time in school. One of the few job opportunities she was able to follow were gardening, and somehow even activism.
