Moonlight over Mischievous Acts is a case featured in Criminal Case as the seventy-ninth case of the game. It is the twenty-fifth case of Berrini and the first case in Calamity Canyon.


After the team learned of the escape of serial murderer and kidnapper Bonnie McCiloi, they headed to Calamity Canyon. After weapons expert Mei investigated the wreckage of the transport van, she was able to determine from a map that Bonnie was escaping to a nearby town called Grimslough. However, when Astrid and the player got to the town, they found it barren and deserted along with Bonnie's corpse hanging from a lone hanging tree in the square. Beatriz confirmed the so-called hanging as murder due to the wounds on Bonnie's hands and head. They then suspected hangman Ned Koirlingson, local baker Fiona Whayfa and the victim's friend Lukis Gory before Nikolai informed that he found out that Bonnie planned to escape by boat at the district's only port.

They investigated the district's port to find clues to suspect the victim's brother, Blade McCiloi and the victim's former teacher Lucy Fernández. They also learned that Ned and Lukis had grudges with the victim due to his traumatizing past that made him into the person he was today. They then had to stop Blade from burning down the ghost town before they arrested Lucy Fernández for the murder.

When they confronted her about the murder, she was confused about what Astrid and the player were talking about and denied the accusations. After being questioned for an hour, she gave in and then told the team everything. She revealed that she murdered him because someone had reported that he was from "out of town" and she thought he was going to take something they belonged to the people of the district, which she revealed was a hidden treasure. Then Astrid asked what was so special about the gold but Lucy refused to answer. Afterward, Astrid arrested her and sent her to trial. In court, Judge Marrakchi thought it was suitable for her to be put away for 30 years in prison. Shortly after, the team were informed that a group of people had helped Lucy escape custody on her way to prison.

After the detectives learned that Lucy had escaped, they investigated the creepy ghost town again to find out where she had escaped. They soon found the fingerprints of Blade McCiloi, who revealed that he had helped Lucy escape prison as he believed that she didn't deserve to go to prison for protecting the treasure from his murderous brother. They then arrested and realized that Lucy could've gone to the port based on Blade's choice of words. After they found her keychain, they found her and arrested her again before Mei vowed to take Lucy back to prison herself.

Meanwhile Mayor Patricia Osborne requested the team's help in learning more about the people who broke Lucy out. They investigated the bakery to find a scroll that detailed a hidden golden city that made anyone who believed in the true fortune of the city protect the city from any intruders or people searching for it. They then informed the mayor, who told them to keep investigating. At the end of the case, the team vowed to find out more about the hidden golden city.
