A Home Full of Murder

Murder Dies First is the first case of Varini. It is also the first case of Fraise Residences.


The player arrived at Varini's police department only to be welcomed to the team by Chief Augustine Marchant. She then introduced the new detective to the team. She then encouraged the player to go take a break when Gabriel Michaux alerted the team of a homicide in Fraise Residences. The chief then assigned Agent Andre Hartmann with the player to investigate the homicide.

The victim was a local named Michael McKay found slaughtered in an alleyway. Soon the murder weapon was revealed to be a pocket knife and the killer was found to be the victim's friend Eric Jackson. Eric said that the victim had dug too deep into a criminal gang residing in Fraise Residences. The gang leader had told Eric to kill Michael, who obliged as he had a personal motive of his own. The victim stole his girlfriend. For the charge of the remorseless murder of Michael McKay and his involvement with a criminal gang, the judge sentenced him to 45 years in prison.

After finding an untraceable message, it was deducted that it came from the leader. They also found a mysterious manuscript in which the text was written in French. Appeartantly there's a secret that the gang was pursuing something hidden. When the fingerprints of Darren Dewolfe was found on the manuscript, the detectives interrogated the troublemaker, who didn't know what they were talking about. After finding Gabriel Michaux's glasses case in the trash, the team was informed of another murder.
