Because of your investigation skills, you are finally hired as the Undercover Investigator, most likely the criminals are after policemen as their targets. As you tried to place Simon Scamwell to jail, he was shot instead of you. Though you managed to survive, but you found the killer wearing a hat as an evidence.
After gaining even the incomplete evidence, the killer of Simon, and the one who hurt you is actually Thomas Carlton. Thomas Carlton accidentally shot Simon Scamwell as he is testing out a gun, but he didn't realized that he is targeting the wrong target area. His honesty, but since he hit an undercover however, he is jailed by 5 years, with a chance of parole of 2 and a half years (if he is going back being a policeman again after being jailed, he is likely starting back to Private).
