New Day, New Start is a case featured in Alternate Criminal Case, appearing as the first case of the game. It is the first case of the game's S.T.A.T.U.S Q.U.O (Season 1) and also the first one to take place in San Franciso, California.


Somewhere in San Francisco, the player is greeted by Chief Edward Carter in S.T.A.T.U.S Q.U.O Headquarters. He also introduces the player to Bravo Team Leader Kevin Ripley, who will be working with the player at this time of day. After getting reports of a sudden car crash, Chief Carter sent the two to the streets. There, they find pop star Lana Chaling electrocuted to death near her car, which has been damaged by road blockers.

Mid-investigation, the team tried to stop a fight between Lana Chaling’s fan Angie Tayjal and greaser Billie Fonte. Later, Sergeant Sasha Briggs had to deal with a bunch of fans rioting over Lana’s death along with someone getting away from the scene. Despite this, team was able to find enough evidence to incriminate Jamaican street cook Geronima Talisan for the murder.

Initially denying the accusations, Geronima accidentally admitted of spitting the victim’s top in disgust, prompting her to admit to the murder. Geronima hated pop stars like Lana as she believes that they are always the ones that earn the fame and not other people. One day when she was going to work, her customers left her stall in favor for Lana’s performance. Geronima confronted Lana and tried to talk some sense to her, but she ignored her pleas and mocked her. Angered by this, Geronima rigged the road blocks into instantly activating if Lana’s car arrives and electrocuted her to death with a stolen stun rod upon succeeding. The Nine Judge Council sentenced Geronima 29 years in prison with no chance of parole.

After the trial, computer store employee Dave Holland told the Kevin and the player in the bookstore about a disturbance in the roads despite the case being solved. The team later found a piece of wallpaper with a crimson and black symbol. Per Christopher, the symbol possibly belonged to someone with a fun, empathic, and destructive personality, possibly a party thrower or a secret vigilante. The team then talked to Ricky Kerone aka Hotdawg, who admitted of owning the wallpaper but denied spraying the symbol.

Meanwhile, Sasha and the player met up with Alpha Team Leader John Doe, who asked the them to find Detective Doug Peterson, their other partner, who hasn’t reported the last two hours after leaving the station. After finding his camera and asking Billie about Doug’s location, the two along with Einstein found Doug in the park, who was bird watching instead of usually patrolling as he was supposed to do. After all of the events, the team decided to relax in the hotel while trying to find out who made that crimson symbol.
