Plot

Following Kian Lynch's escape after being arrested for murder, Major Lucas and the player tracked Kian's escape to the Lynch family's business in their department store. However when they arrived, they found Kian there, his skull cracked open. The two detectives then interrogated the victim's brother Alexander Lynch, the victim's father Ronald Lynch and the victim's sister Kaitlynn Lynch, after she was released on bail for being an accomplice in murder. Soon Jordan discovered that the victim was at Justice Banks River before his murder. There they found clues to add foreign officer Michael McKenzie-Petrov and family patriarch Martin Lynch to the queue of suspects. Even later, Alexander and Kaitlynn got into an argument over who would get the family's inheritance. However in the end, Kian's grandfather and family patriarch Martin Lynch was apprehended for the murder.

Martin explained that he disapproved of Kian's fame and that fame should be earned through work in the world and not in a bunch of stupid games. Also Kian had made a video that he would reveal something about the Fontaine family. Wanting to know what the secret was, Martin confronted Kian after he escaped custody inside the family's department store. When Kian refused, Martin threw a head bust at his grandson and it killed him instantly. Judge Brighton was horrified at Martin's heartlessness and greed that she thought that a high security medical institution was suitable for Martin.

After the trial, Major and the player visited Martin in his cell about his family's connection with Adelina. He explained that his son, Ronald had impregnated Adelina's mother and then told her to raise Adelina herself and to not tell anyone. To give proof, Martin told them to look inside the family's department store. There they found the pregnancy test, which upon Janice's analysis, was indeed Adelina's mother's test. The team told Adelina, who explained that she couldn't imagine how cruel and heartless her paternal family had been. However Major made her go see the one who really cared about her, Martin himself. Martin apologized to Adelina for everything but he knew that someone was causing the broken connections to happen.

Meanwhile, Jordan and the player tracked down Ronald's briefcase, which had a bunch of financial districts in a folder that was confirmed by Jordan and Summer that it was indeed money laundering, false gambling wins and counterfeit money printing. It soon immediately got Ronald Lynch handed over to Michael McKenzie-Petrov, who said that he would take Ronald out of the country and back to the UK.

After the successes of the Lynch family's financial crimes were uncovered as well Adelina's biological connection, they were about to celebrate over champagne when Denise Brighton called in to inform the police of someone being found murdered in the suburbs of the district.
