—Case Teaser

Murder in the Air is a case featured in Criminal Case as the first case of Save the Timeline!. It is the first case to take place in Europe region.


The player arrives in Paris, headquarters for the Time Investigation Bureau, and is introduced by the flirty Lola Mathison, who was excited for the player's arrival. Mathison explains that the time investigation bureau is currently on standby for any time disruptions, so the player has some time to learn about the time. Lola points to a nearby casino and leads the player in there. However, upon entering the casino, a man approaches them and says that he's found a body. Following the unknown man, they discover the body of croupier Henry Winters, his torso pierced by a single arrow. The collected coroner Ivana Broker confirms that the victim died on the arrow coming in contact with the victim's heart.

The man that found the body, Peter Grand, was suspected for the murder. They also suspected prostitute Nicolette Sweetheart after being the last one who gambled at the victim's table and the victim's daughter Tiana Winters, who was obviously distressed about the murder. During the investigation, Lola nervously apologized for forcing the player to solve a murder so soon when the analytical and courageous tech expert Dawn Shapiro approached them, saying that she found the victim handing something off to a suited man minutes before his death.

Lola and the player follow Dawn's lead and head to the underground parking lot the lovely goth found. They then discover that the suited man was Marcus Joy, CEO of Twister, the corporation that made the Time Investigation Bureau's time traveling capsule. When asked why he met Winters, Joy avoided the question, denying that he ever met the victim. They also suspected singer Sabrina Justice after the victim escorted her out of her car to the casino safely. After discovering that the victim was an avid drinker and took his anger on his daughter Tiana, the team were baffled on why Marcus and the victim before the flirty laboratory chief Europa Westington giggled, saying that she found the croupier stick while flirting with Nicolette.

Europa told them she found the stick while flirting with Nicolette in the underground parking lot, near a suspicious van, prompting the duo to go there. After investigating the suspicious van, they discovered Henry impregnated Nicolette during their one-night romance long time ago but Nicolette had to abort, causing Nicolette to hate the victim and that he tried to take over Marcus' business. The duo then returned to the casino and found clues revealing that Henry was jealous on Sabrina because she wrote an awful song about him, causing Henry to sabotage one of her concerts in revenge. They also discovered the victim was cheating in one of the blackjack games what made Peter angry and made him report the victim. Lola with a slight smile on her face said they're ready to arrest the player's first killer in the new adventure. The duo eventually arrested Tiana for the murder.

Lola and the player found Tiana on a bench, asking if they have found her father's killer. Lola sighed and accused her of being the murderer. At first she was revolted, saying that she loved him dearly. As the evidence was against her, however, she admitted to the murder, saying that he was about to ruin her life. She explained that a few nights before, her dad met Marcus. The day after, he was excited and said that he was accepted into a new job as a mechanic for Twister. He then was excited and said that Twister was going to change time and space as we know it. She then started crying, saying that Henry was going to change many events: one saving her mother, a woman named Jennie Burgess, from a fire from previous times. Realizing that the world could change forever if the events in time would change, she quickly took the sacrifice and shot her father with an arrow through the busy casino. The pensive judge Violetta Martinez understood Tiana's story but still says that murder is still murder and sentenced the young woman to thirty-five years in prison. Before being hauled off to prison, she told the player to not trust Twister.

After saying this, Tiana was hauled to the prison. The duo then left the courtroom, visibly interested in what Tiana said them earlier. Afterwards, they went to tell everything to the chief Sarah. Interested and a bit worried about Twister, a company that could change events in the time, she told them they have to investigate what Twister is up to. Considering the victim met Marcus in the underground parking lot, they went to see if there's anything interesting they can use. After investigating, the duo found Marcus' locked wallet. They unlocked it and found his phone. They sent it to Dawn, who revealed he had an argument with his daughter about his bank account. They went to question Tiana, who told them she blocked her father's bank account. Tiana explained how he was furious when he found out she blocked his account because he was an awful father. Her father wanted to give a big amount of money to Twister as a gift because he was hired there. After hearing this, the duo wanted to question Marcus, but he wasn't in his office. They questioned Twister's Management Director Maria Rose instead. Maria told them how he left his office a couple of hours ago, but didn't say where he was going. However, she saw him in the casino before leaving his office too, so they went there and found a map. After revealing the text, Hamburg was circled on the map, and on the back of the map, a plane ticket was attached. Dawn analyzed the clue she got and told them how she found out he was going to Hamburg a few times to pray due to his favorite church being there and his plane already left for Hamburg a few hours ago.

A little later that day, Ivana came in and asked the duo if they could help her with something. Ivana said Sarah's birthday is today and she prepared a beautiful party in a near club, but however, she made a note for Sarah to read and come to the club but lost it somewhere around Henry's hotel room. They then found a note and sent it to Sarah in hope she'll come to the club to celebrate with the team. Not long after they sent the note to her, Sarah slowly entered the club that was visibly dark. A bit skeptical about it, she slowly started walking when lights turned on and the whole team congratulated her birthday, kissing her and putting icing on her face. After a group hug, the party continued and lasted all night long...

The next morning, the team prepared to go to Hamburg and ask Marcus about his company's plans...
