Like a Fallen Survivor is a case featured in Criminal Case, appearing as the thirty-third case as well as the city of Alpha Bay, and the first one to take place in the Bayside Corner district.


A few days after arriving at Bayside Corner, Aiden took the player with him to hang around the district. While walking, Aiden muttered to himself about Susan, who had taken a break after her ex-boyfriend got arrested for murder. Soon after, they found themselves in front of the Protectors of the Galaxy film set and went inside, where they were warmly greeted by film director Robert Fernis who asked them if they'd like to see the shooting, but before they could answer, a bullet came out of nowhere and hit his head, causing him to fall dead right then.

Despite being shocked, the team quickly sent the body to Eva before flagging three people as suspects, including famous actress Ellie Olsen, victim's assistant Natalia Weston and ex-wife Kate Sky, since Ellie was acting as the main character of Robert's movie, while it was revealed the victim trusted Natalia enough to let her direct some parts of the movie, and that Kate had met the victim earlier that day to discuss some private things. However, Eva said the murder weapon was most likely a .22 Caliber Pistol, and that the killer was right-handed, counting the angle of the wound.

Later on, Aiden insisted they search the victim's apartment, prompting them to go there, only to find a brown haired guy who was trying to go inside the apartment. Seeing them, he introduced himself as private detective Joseph Huntington before explaining he was just trying to obtain some clues. Aiden told him to step aside before informing him that the ABPD on it. However, after searching the apartment they flagged actor Kevin Rayes as a suspect who was also acting in Protectors of the Galaxy. Later, Natalia and Kate were interrogated again since Natalia was having an affair with the victim, hence he was giving her so many chances, while Kate had an argument with Robert regarding their late son who had died a few years ago, saying he was responsible for it.

While recapping, Chief Prince approached them and said that Kevin was threatening to burn the film set down. Hearing so, the team rushed towards the set where they found Kevin with a molotov cocktail. Aiden managed to calm him down before asking why he was so angry, and he replied Robert was a horrible person and director who didn't deserve to direct a film like the aforementioned one, which was why he had decided to burn the set down. Anyway, he didn't reveal why he was so horrible in his eyes, and the team somehow managed to calm him down before questioning Ellie and Joseph again, as Ellie had almost left the set as Robert was trying to flirt with her, while Joseph got a restriction order which was filed by the victim just because he was walking around his apartment a few days ago, making Joseph totally surprised.

Finally, the team got all the clues needed to indict Kevin for the murder.

Kevin sighed when the team confronted him with the proof, and said that Robert had totally changed the original story of the movie only for Natalia. Aiden asked him how so, and he replied that he had decided to kill both Ellie and his characters so he could give Natalia a role–most specifically the main role of the movie, and that that'd be a terrible choice since changing the real story and actors would cause the fans to get angry. Besides, Natalia didn't know anything about acting, and it was honestly unfair how he was giving her those chances only because she was her assistant and listened to his every single words. Again, Robert was one of the most influential directors, which meant not many people could stop him from doing the aforementioned work. So, Kevin decided to take the matters in his own hands in order to save the movie from getting ruined as it was very famous and meant a lot of him. Then he said that Robert referred to him and Ellie as fallen survivors, and that it was very ironic for fate to return the words back to him. Anyway, Judge Powell got surprised hearing that Robert was that influential before sentencing him to 15 years in jail.

Back to the station, Joseph approached the team and said he had some info about Robert and his fame to share with them. The team asked him what was it about, and he replied that he had found it odd how Robert became so famous in just a year. Aiden agreed, saying he had never seen Robert in the spotlight from his childhood, but that it didn't seem much strange to him. Joseph sighed and told them to search Robert's workplace, where he had left Robert's career statistics, prompting them to search the place. After retrieving it, they sent it to Troy who said Robert had become famous after he started to make sci-fi films, but that his early career movies said otherwise. Besides, his analysis showed Robert had made such detailed movies without much knowledge, making him think as if someone had given him ideas for his movies. He then advised them to question Natalia who said she was just trying to shine in life with the help of Robert and that his backstory didn't bother her, before saying they could find something they could find something at his home. There, they found his phone, containing a message which instructed Robert to silence Joseph. This made the team confront him, and he said that it wouldn't be that easy to just kill him and that he was now positive about unrevealing some secrets, more than ever. However, he said it'd be better for all to know what he was investigating about after a while and left the station.

Meanwhile, Troy approached the team and said that if they could introduce him to Ellie as she was his most favourite actress. Aiden smiled and let him go with the player to meet Ellie, who had decided to continue her work in the movie now that Robert was no more. However, Troy introduced himself to her before asking an autograph, and she gladly agreed before noticing her handbag was missing. Troy insisted they find it for her, so they took a look around the set and managed to retrieve the handbag. After giving it back to Ellie, she thanked the team and gave Troy an autograph, and took some selfies with him per his request, making him blush.

A while later, the tean gave the case report to Chief Prince, just when they heard an explosion sound coming from a nereby house.
