Living in Clover is a case featured in Criminal Case, appearing as the ninth case of the game as well as the city of Clearford. It is also the ninth case to take place in Vocation City, a district based in Clearford.


Warren was worried about The Ladri and their master plan of launching a nuclear attack on the city of Clearford. He wanted the player and Angel to continue their jobs until Gale recovers completely at the hospital. During the morning, the team receives a call from Tristan's husband, Ethan Garrett, that he found a body at the district's lakeside. The team were shocked to discover that their only reliable source of information was murdered.

The victim was the heir to the Eastman Fortune, August Eastman, who had blood coming out of his mouth with a water gallon next to him. Evelyn autopsied the victim and found out that August was forced to ingest the 3-liter water gallon which resulted in water intoxication and immediate death. She identified this to be a torture method called the "water cure".

The team met five suspects, each with a motive for murdering August. Summer Eastman, the successful businesswoman and the victim's mother, blamed August's foolish behavior for causing her to lose her fortune. Jake Taylor, Ross Taylor's younger brother and a world traveller, despised the victim for making him invest money into his company and didn't give him more in return. Alessandro de Luca, the de Luca bakery owner, harbored a deep hatred for the player while revealing that he discovered The Ladri's master plan and attempted to spread the word around Vocation City but August didn't allow it. Monique Halima, the soon-to-be retired pregnant tourism director, threatened to kill August for trying to steal from her when she needed everything she could get to raise her upcoming child. Ross Taylor, a photographer, hated August's guts for scamming his younger brother.

When the team finally gathered enough evidence, they incriminated the killer to be Alessandro de Luca. Angel presented the evidence then Alessandro explained his reasons for murdering August. The leader of The Ladri became impatient with their goal of attempting to nuke Clearford and kill Gale. As a result, they wanted Alessandro to assassinate Gale, which he carried out (Maria was wrong about the leader attempting to kill Gale) and spread propaganda across the city of the upcoming nuclear attack. Angel was confused why the leader would do this but Alessandro stated that their leader doesn't want to kill the innocent citizens of Clearford but they simply want to destroy it completely. The leader wants all of the citizens out of Clearford to achieve whatever goal they've set. In addition, the leader discovered August and blew his cover then ordered Alessandro to kill him. Angel, disgusted, shipped Alessandro to court.

In the courthouse, Alessandro reiterated that he was simply following orders to help the leader of The Ladri accomplish their goal of nuking Clearford without harming the innocent civilians. The Honorable King didn't tolerate people who were lapdogs as he believes that everybody has the right to do what they want without someone controlling them in some way. Alessandro's attempted murder of Gale Pearson, robberies committed, and successful murder of August Eastman were grounds for a lifetime jail sentence.

Following Alessandro's trial, the team decided to investigate the subway station seeing as that August spent his last moments there. Their investigation led them to a newspaper article with the headline pertaining to the Clearford Riots and a metal handle. Casey discovered that Ross Taylor took photos of the riots that occurred two years prior to the events of the game which resulted in Gale's late partner, Christopher Sherwood's death. Apparently, the riots were caused by a scandal within Colvin Enterprises. Ryan was involved in a shady deal and he used his investments he gathered from the citizens of Clearford for an unknown use. This enraged the citizens of Clearford and several riots ensued with Vocation City being the worst. Ross explained that he was doing his job and noticed a few shady individuals confronting Sherwood in an alley and he even showed a picture of it to the team. Confused, the team thanked Ross for his help.

Meanwhile, the team learned of Jake Taylor's criminal past. He was revealed to be a serial killer who travelled around the world to find new victims. However, all of the paperwork that proved Jake's guilt were destroyed and he is now a free man. Angel expresses her distrust towards Jake when the team talks to him. Jake assures the team that he did that five years ago and it's all behind him. Now, he just travels the world to learn and have fun.

The team then searches the junkyard to find more clues and they end up finding a human finger inside a jar. Evelyn analyzed it and informed the team that the finger belonged to Althea Murphy. Shocked, the team rushed to Cecilia Murphy's home, only to find it empty. When the team returns to the station to inform Chief Winter, he tells the team that both the Murphys were kidnapped.
