Night at the Marina is the eighty-fourth case of Criminal Case, being the second case of Baeland, as well as the eighty-fourth case overall. It takes place in Müller Marina as the second case of the district.

Plot

The player's shift starts with them meeting their second partner: the lustful Veronica Salter. She compliments the player's physique and calm demeanor and explains that they are here to intercept Tyreese Dante's shipment after learning about a kingpin that plagues the marina. Upon arriving at the marina, all Veronica could see was a slumped body on the docks, and no signs of anyone else or the ship. The player convinces Veronica to investigate deeper, in which she complies, hoping to make her boyfriend, private eye Jordan Campbell, smile. The duo examine the body and per a name tag, discover the body of dockhand Leonard Wilburne, his adze piercing his throat. Fleur explained that the killer pushed him down upon the protruding stump in the docks and left him to bleed out, the adze too deep in his throat to move without expediting the murder process.

The team suspected singer Sidney Stone, who used to date the victim until Wilburne developed drinking habits, as well as egyptologist Zafir Ptahsheptut, who frequently tutored the victim, who wanted to be involved in a higher paying field of work. The team also met eco-activist Eden Lane, who was angered after the victim littered on the beach. During the investigation, Veronica commented on how gruesome the murder was before Mia found them, explaining that Sidney and the victim boarded a yacht party thirty minutes before the latter's death.

Veronica and the player enter the ship where they were confronted by Party Peter, scolding them for the lack of an invite. With Veronica's obvious flattering, the yacht owner was dazed and allowed the duo to investigate the yacht. There, they suspected partygoer Katherine Ellis, who attempted to take the victim home for the night for her "personal endeavors," but Sidney assertively took him home. They also learn that the victim drunkenly attempted to fight Zafir, angrily talking about how Egyptology isn't a real profession. Amidst the investigation, they hear Eden and a bunch of eco-activists, marching towards the yacht with signs and pitch forks.

The lusty detective stopped Eden and her group in their tracks and asked what was wrong. She explained that Party Peter's partygoers are always littering their bottles and cans on the beach. Eden wants to shut down the party animal's parties forever to save the waters. After Veronica used her charm to calm Lane and her group down, the team found out that Katherine and Leonard used to go to school together before the latter pressured Katherine into dropping out before incriminating Sidney for the murder.

Veronica and the player confronted Sidney, who was at the docks in a pensive manner. After Veronica broke her trance, she confronted the singer with the murder. She started to sob, saying that she wouldn't dare touch the love of her life in such a way. With Veronica's charming eyes, Sidney eventually admits to the murder, saying that she saw her boyfriend change. The singer explained that Leonard used to be angelic, planning on be an apprentice to an Egyptologist and wanting to move to Cairo with her. However, lately, she noticed him leaving dates early, sometimes skipping them, to head to the docks. One night, she followed him and saw him carrying a barrel of unsolicited drugs off from a shipping container and shaking a suited man's hand. After his shift ended, she confronted him and was disgusted by his actions. He sighed and said that he thinks Egyptology is boring and that selling drugs would make their lives more thrilling. After Sidney threatened to break up with him, he slapped her and said that he'll kill her herself before that'll happen. In a moment of self defense and rage, she picked up a nearby adze and stabbed his neck with it before running away crying. Meera hyped and rooted Sydney up, saying that she is the epitome of what women should be and was super proud of Sydney before sighing and sentencing her to ten years in prison.

After the trial, Katherine approached them with a bruise on her forehead, saying that she was knocked out by the kingpin. They move Katherine to a safer location, and she explained that while going for a walk on the docks to clear her head, she stumbled upon a suspicious, bright red portable cooler standing out of the docks. Upon approaching it, they discover the plywood that was used to knock out Katherine. The chaotic lab analyst Ruby Armstrong said that she found traces of glitter on the part of the wood that was held while knocking the partygoer. She then explains that the glitter is the same as the glitter seen everywhere on Party Peter's yacht. Before they went, a dashing private eye introduced himself as Jordan Campbell and asked for his intervention.

Veronica blushed and asked what Jordan was doing here, in which Jordan explained that he's been tasked by Mayor Meunier to arrest the kingpin, and has information via witnesses reports on them. He explains that the kingpin hires people who are addicted to alcohol, so that their memories would be fuzzy while they do their dirty work. He also notes that he targets places with high use of alcohol, such as Party Peter's yacht. The elite detective praised her boyfriend before the trio went onto Peter's yacht and pointed out a cooler that matched the same description as the cooler in Katherine's story. After unlocking it, they find copious amounts of 'gram baggies' full of cocaine in the cooler.

The trio confront Peter and accuse him of being the kingpin. He laughed in their faces and said that he would never do such thing, and explained that one of his guests probably brought it in to make the party more thriving. After Jordan inquired about getting him a guest list, he drunkenly laughed in the private eye's face, saying that he doesn't keep a tab on who is at his parties, before walking off to drink more. After Jordan said that the party animal is immature, Veronica growled and said that he's as wild in bed, before the private eye grew a sanguine blush and walked to the beach with the two. There, they find an empty gram baggie with champagne on it. Ruby was able to determine that the champagne was a fancy brand that is only exclusive in Baeland at the Roaring Thunder male nightclub. Jordan smirked and said that he'll meet the player there before placing a kiss on Veronica's forehead and walking off. Veronica blushed and wished the player good luck as the BPD head off to the Roaring Thunder.
