—Case Teaser

Man Under the Red Hood is a case featured in Criminal Case as the sixtieth case of the game. It is the sixth case of Berrini and the sixth and final case in Markle Metropolis.


A week following the New Year celebrations, the player and Luke discussed over those who were caught and imprisoned for their involvement in the heist that would potentially happen at Tremaine Enterprises. However Chief Crosby informed the duo of gunshots being heard inside the biggest bank owned by the enterprise, which led the duo to head there and find the body of Mitch Fox, six bullets piercing his chest. They went to suspect bank owner Fred Tremaine, citizen Oliver Umar, photographer Julia Cedar and mysterious man Nikolai Rodionov.

Later, Imani Kayode informed the detectives that the heist gang had attacked the vault, where they found clues to suspect reindeer caretaker and now bank teller Jax Walker as well mechanic Jack Chapman. They then learned a confession from Jack before going on to arrest Fred Tremaine for Mitch's murder.

The team went to arrest him when they found him smiling as he asked if they finally clicked all the pieces together. Confused, Luke asked Fred what he meant and Fred explained that he had let the heist gang go on with their plans to rob his own bank after he made them raid others for his bank and fortune to substantially grow. He explained that he wanted all of this to be a game and that he would've exposed the heist gang himself and without help from the Berrini PD, which revealed his mastermind identity. As Mitch was his informant, he was always one step ahead of the heist gang. However on the day of the heist, Mitch was caught by Fred trying to break into the vault. Betrayed, Fred chased Mitch through the bank hallways and finally shot Mitch to death inside the bank's lobby with his father's sniper rifle. As he refused to name the heist gang's leader, Fred was sentenced to life in prison for his crimes by Judge Marrakchi.

Soon Nikolai offered help with dealing with the heist gang leader. They went to Fred's office where they found a secret laptop that helped Jordan reveal the messages and blueprints delivered to Oliver Umar from Fred. The team then went to Oliver's home where Oliver threatened them to leave before he set off a bomb that would demolish the house with them inside. However before Oliver could, Nikolai smacked Oliver hard in the head, rendering Oliver unconscious with a large bump on his head. The team then arrested him and sent him to trial where Judge Marrakchi gave him life in prison for his crimes.

Soon Chief Crosby asked the player to help him track down Nikolai's files that he left in the bank lobby. They found it before Chief Crosby made the decision to offer Nikolai the role as criminal consultant. Nikolai then accepted the offer and promised to Chief Crosby that he would try his best to not get angry at the other team members or the suspects unless it's necessarily needed. Then Jack Chapman asked the player for assistance in helping him find his engagement ring inside the bank vault. They found the ring and gave it to Jack, who then went to propose to his girlfriend, Julia Cedar, in which Julia tearfully accepted.

Finally, the team were visited by the mayor of Wandering Woods, Cassandra Ashford, who informed the team that she needed assistance in Wandering Woods where a series of natural disasters including floods and earthquakes had ravaged the district and that she needed help restoring the beautiful district of flora and fauna back to its beauty and glorious views. The team then packed up to assist Mayor Ashford in helping the rescue and restoration efforts.
