—Case Teaser

New Year, New Dead is a case featured in Criminal Case, appearing as the first case of Throughout the World (Season 2) and also the second one to take place in North America.

Plot

After the player managed to solve their first case in Greenland, Chief Li invited the Global Agency of Justice's personnel to watch the new year's ball drop in Times Square, New York. During the New Year countdown, security Harvey Giles informed the team that there was a body tied to the Times Square ball and asked them for help. Unfortunately, Beatrice and the player found businesswoman Selena Wilson crushed by the ball.

Harvey directed the team to investigate Tomlinson Yards near the crime scene where they listed barista Scarlett Mills and the victim's boyfriend Daniel Benson on the suspect's list. Based on Rajesh's analysis, the team had to investigate the area of the Statue of Liberty. There, they found a couple of evidence which resulted in economist Jimmy McCormick, a business partner of the victim, and singer Sarah Woodrow to be suspected. With enough evidence, the killer turned out to be Scarlett.

Scarlett initially denied involvement but soon admitted to the crime. Scarlett and Selena were dating in a bar to the point they got drunk. Remembering vaguely, Selena said she was happy that Daniel proposed her marriage. Feeling jealous and betrayed, Scarlett quickly tied the victim to the New Year Ball. Later on, Selena fell to her demise as the clock turned to 12 AM. Judge Gallardo sentenced her to 20 years in jail.

Post-trial, the team investigated the hotel to learn more about the Red Party's secret. There, they found a red cap with a political message sprayed on it. Found out to be owned by Daniel, he said he had recently volunteered to the party. Later on, Rudy Gregor asked Chief Li to sign a document about their cooperation, which the chief signed hoping to get more information about the Red Party.

Meanwhile, the team investigated Times Square to look for Sarah's lost camera, which they found. Per Rajesh, the camera showed that the Blue Party had encouraged her to be a partisan, which she had no interest in. With ambassador Michelle Donovan asking for the assistance of the GLA to secure the UN summit, Chief Li ordered Rustam and the player to go to Montreal to fulfill the request.
