Misery Loves Company (Case #22) is the twenty-second fanmade case and is the fifth case in the Sandy Hollow district by Tuttifruttichaitea.

Case Background

A while ago, Ashley Russell informed the Campbell City Police Department that she suspected that a theft would soon take place in Sandy Hollow. Much to the dismay of both the police department and the mayor of the ghost town, Angelo Giordano's Sandglade Bank was the victim of the theft. Suspects were rounded down to none other than Ashley Russell herself, bank tellers Felix Scott and Elodie Oaster, thug Harold Feldgrau, and prison warden Arnold Baskin (in which all asides the bank tellers had been suspected before). In the end, the Sandglade Bank thief was revealed to be Felix Scott himself.

When apprehended, Felix decided to confess. He told that Angelo Giordano was learning too much about the Congregation. Rather than slaying Giordano, the Congregation felt the need to rid Giordano of his money, as they felt that he could use it by means of funds to study more. The leader of the Congregation decided that Felix was to be one of the three leaders of the bank heist, as he was an affiliate and employee of the Sandglade Bank. When Everett Winston asked who the other two were, he refused to divulge, claiming that he was a loyal member to the Congregation.

The judge was ecstatic yet depressed—ecstatic that he was not putting a murder to trial, but depressed that he had to sentence yet another criminal. Wallace felt the need to express that it would have worked faster had the Congregation sent Felix to kill, in which the disgraced bank teller rebutted by telling that the organization's modus operandi was becoming too predictable. Felix believed that he could have gotten away with the crime had he not left the money at the Giordano estate, which he had to do as he temporarily dumped it there. Montgomery had enough and sentenced Felix to 40 years in jail.

Following the arrest of the bank teller, Felix was interrogated once more to find out more about the hate for Giordano. Felix refused to tell anymore. However, the Giordano estate was treated as a crime scene for the third time, in which an article was found in a pile of dirt. After Carl Bryson's analysis, the article displayed information about their involvement in the murder of a certain Autumn Harrison, who Chief Harrison revealed was his aunt.

Since Autumn was the chief's paternal aunt, the chief decided to talk to his father—Blake Harrison—once more. The chief's father revealed that Autumn had worked for Giordano around the time of her death. She said that she trusted her brother and said that she was being threatened by the Congregation due to something she had found out that she could not reveal to others unless she wanted them to die. She then slipped Blake a note, which was revealed to be from the Congregation, saying that she had put Angelo's life at stake.

Asides that, Ashley Russell claimed to have found out where the treasure was hidden. She claimed however that she had hid it and lost it. Also, a bloody mace was found on the premises of the Sandglade Bank. A blood sample shockingly revealed that Arnold Baskin had come in contact with the mace. When Everett and the player called Giordano's number, the person on the other line said that Arnold had a very interesting surprise for them and that the PD should come and find out.
