Life Choice is the fiftieth case of Criminal Case and the fiftieth case of Warrenville. It takes place in Gearheart Central, appearing as the second case of the district.


The team had suddenly received word that a bombing had occurred, not too far from the station. Worried, Chief Armstrong sent the player to investigate alongside Josiah and Daisy. They managed to make it to the scene of the bombing, the nearby abortion clinic. Upon checking out the damage, they ended up finding an unknown body.

The autopsy confirmed the victim was female, and was killed by the explosion, and also confirmed she was there to have an abortion. They began by interrogating the bomb disposal officer at the scene, Nevin Rodgers, alongside protestor Angelica Calderon and pro-life protest leader Penelope Carson. Later on Daphne approached the team saying she managed to discover who the victim was.

Daphne confirmed the victim was actually someone they met previously, Jewel Ingram, who they met while investigating her girlfriend's murder. After discovering that they continued their investigation, adding Barron family heir Grant Barron and scuba diver Mimi Labarge, who the team also met previously. The team later got word that another bomb had been placed close to the crime scene.

After disarming the bomb, the team then discovered the child was actually conceived by the victim and Grant Barron. He informed them it was done via artificial insemination, in hopes the victim would produce him an heir he'd raise personally, feeling disappointed in the two children he already had. But after Jewel lost her girlfriend, she couldn't bear going through with it and decided to go back on her deal with Grant. Eventually, the team discovered the bomber was Nevin.

At first, Nevin was insulted they'd accuse him of bombing and murder given his profession. But once the evidence was presented, Nevin said he was disappointed he failed his mission. He informed them that he was a 'loyal soldier' of the black market, who told him that abortion clinics 'are not the people's will'. The Conductor themselves asked Nevin to go around bombing the clinics in the area, regardless if anyone dies. Daisy asked him if Jewel's death was a coincidence, to which Nevin confirmed despite their personal connection, and said he'd be more than happy to do it, again and again. He was sent to Judge Blackwell who was alarmed at the bomber's apparent psychopathic nature. With that in mind, he deemed Nevin insane and ordered him to be transferred to Edgewater Asylum out in Ravenedge, where he is to spend the rest of his life.

Following the trial, the team was approached by a roboticist known as Xiomara Blackwell, the sister to Judge Dexter Blackwell. She said she had overheard they were looking for a new tech expert to replace their previous one, and said she might have the solution to it. She was currently developing a new robot, one that looks and acts more human than any other she made previously. She codenamed it Har-Monia, but needed the police's help in activating it. After finding the necessary part, they helped Xiomara activate the robot, and after introductions Xiomara informed them she needed to do a bit more work before she was ready for a field test.

Meanwhile, knowing the black market was behind the bombing, the team needed to ensure they wouldn't continue their scheme. After confronting Nevin, they managed to locate their plans for bombing the rest of the district. However, they were also informed that they required parts from outside of Warrenville, and planned to have some shipped in from outside of Warrenville via the airport. Knowing that, the team made their way to Warrenville Airlines in order to intercept the bomb parts.

Meanwhile, Lydia was out and about trying to find more people to assist the police like Cayden and Samuel were. After finding Angelica and Mimi, she asked them for their assistance, as she was worried a war was fast approaching between the market and the police, and they needed all the help they could. Angelica was more than happy to assist, though Mimi seemed a bit reluctant and need more time to think. Lydia was fine with it, but warned her she should come to a decision sooner rather than later, in the meantime she and Angelica headed off to find more potential allies and clues to the black market...
