Like a Fish Out of Water is a case featured in Criminal Case as the tenth case of the season. It is featured as the fourth case set in the Cascade Cove district of Aurelia.

Plot

Back on the mainland, Silvano and the player recovered from spending days at sea by taking an afternoon rest on the beach. Their afternoon however was interrupted by the discovery of a speared corpse of famed surfer Wilbur Harrison. Dominic confirmed that the victim was speared before being thrown out into the sea, only to have his body wash up on the beach the next day. Silvano had half-dressed before helping the player suspect fellow surfer Theo Daley, the victim’s father and mayor Ryan Harrison and scuba diver Megan Hearst. They soon then discovered that the victim often visited a local bar on the coastside. There, they suspected bar owner and Fiona’s cousin David Carraway as well pirate captain Yvonne Malstaire. Later a drunken Lydia confessed to seeing the killer following the victim. Despite the motives, the team caught the victim's father and Cascade Cove mayor Ryan Harrison as his killer.

Upon confrontation, Ryan denied involvement stating he was the mayor of Cascade Cove and would never murder his own son. Finally, Ryan cracked under the pressure and admitted that Wilbur was a disappointment. He explained that he wanted his son to achieve great things but all Wilbur wanted to do was drink, party and commit crimes. One night when taking a stroll on the beach, he found Wilbur in a drunken state and decided that it was his only chance to kill Wilbur and put him out of his misery. He further explained that he tied his son up and purchased a harpoon gun from a local shop before heading back and shooting his son dead and throwing him out to sea only for his son’s body to wash ashore again the next day. Shocked, Judge Rodriguez decided the only possible sentence for the corrupt mayor was life imprisonment.

After the trial, Yvonne came to the station reporting that her map was stolen by someone. The team then investigated a cargo ship where they found a medallion inside an abandoned shoulder bag. Soon Cal found out the medallion’s owner as a thief named Eddie Jenkins. Eddie confessed to stealing the pirate’s treasure map and he said that he would find the Azaria Triangle first and claim the treasure by bringing it back alive. However when Silvano and the player tried to cuff him, he escaped with a smoke bomb before they could get the location of the stolen map from him.

After Fiona and the player helped David trace his pet dog and return it to him, the team proceeded to search for the escaped thief.
