Characters Introduced

  • Val Zenodia (Preseller)

  • Randy Pagosh (Judge)
  • Daniel Peterson (Socialist)
  • Mitch Anteur (Today's Network CEO)

Case Background

The victim was a famous journalist, Kellin Cardagreen, who was found dead in the CEO's office in Today's Network premises. His blood stained some newspapers. One of them was bought by the player and Inspector Evan, which made them think there was a murder. His skull was smashed several times against a hard object. During investigation, the team found out that his head was hit with Today's Network printing machine.

A short time before arresting the killer, the team found out with Norman Droff's help that Today's Network and Leamdres (a paper factory which belongs to Mayor Loas) had an agreement. Today's Network's newspapers would say good things about Zachariah Loas, his government and the United Socialism, but also criticize hardly the Comunist Party and Alberto Gandil's decisions. On the other hand, Leamdres would sell paper for Today's Network Corp. to a very low price. The Mayor was not part of this case, but this issue would lead the team to get to know what kind of person the Mayor is and use it when they had to interrogate Zachariah in further cases.

After analyzing Linda Farren's laptop, the team discovered the killer was in fact Bill Pagosh, the company printer. Bill was, after all, not involved in Today's Network agreement with Leamdres. Bill killed Kellin so that everyone would forget Today's Network was working with the Mayor because he wanted to keep the company's good reputation. Bill's uncle was a judge and he was starting to find out about the deal, and he didn't want to get implicated in the trial.

To kill Kellin in Maggalie's office and escape leaving the door key-locked, he left the key in the keyhole tied to a fishing line which went through the office's window. He pulled the fishing line, and the door ended up locked. For his crime (and for slandering the Mayor's honor) he was condemned to life in jail with parole in 40 years.
