—Case Teaser

Night of the Freezing Sun is a case featured in Criminal Case as the fifty-eighth case of the game. It is the fourth case of Berrini and the fourth case in Markle Metropolis.


After the events of Christmas, The team quickly went to the ice lake to catch the criminal only to discover the body of newly arrived tourist and newspaper owner Gorden Loochester, his neck slashed. The team was interrupted by a news reporter Justin Gumeant who said that Gorden was still alive at the News Hall, They quickly ran there and they saw "Gorden Loochester" coming out and giving a report update. After he left, The team started looking for a way in and found a hidden brick that opened a secret door, which led the detectives to question Gorden about the confusing case. They also interrogated the victim's friend Oliver Umar before Gorden told them that someone had trashed his office.

The team went to the victim's office only to find it empty, however clues helped them to make more suspects. They talked to young lady Harriet Mortimer, photographer Julia Cedar before finding out about Justin's news article which attacked Gorden. They later talked to the Oliver about him murdering his brother. They found the murder weapon, an icicle before Gorden revealed that he was going to sue the Berrini Police for saying that he was dead. They talked to him and then went to Gorden's office where they found leads to talk to Harriet about the contract. They also talked to Julia about the picture she took of the victim before they arrested Gorden for the murder.

Gorden didn't reveal his true motive at first but very slowly, Gorden revealed that he thought that his real twin brother was an imposter. Lewis, which turned out to be Gordan's brother, was ran over as a child. When he woke up thinking he was Gorden, their parents split. He didn't understand why but when he saw the real Gorden, he was angry which led Lewis to confront him by asking him why he wasn't dead. After an argument, it ended in Lewis killing Gorden because he thought Gorden was his long dead brother.

Since Lewis was not mentally well enough to go to the courtroom, they phoned the judge who said that the best thing to do was to send him to the Parinaita asylum. Astrid and the player agreed and waited for the right doctors to escort Lewis to the asylum. He thanked the player and Astrid for everything they did for him and then he left.

After the team sent Lewis back to Parinaita for the murder of his brother, the team looked into the heist and found out that Julia had taken pictures of some of the people involved. When they requested to give the pictures, Julia revealed that she had lost them in Gorden's office. Upon finding them, they looked though the database and found one of the helpers, a man by the name of Jim McVine. They went and questioned him about the heist but he refused to say a single thing, leading to him being arrested for helping the heist.

Meanwhile, Imani came to the player for help about closing the Loochester News after it was revealed that the owner was dead. At the newspaper, the duo found a lot of unpaid taxes as well as proof that the newspaper had written many lies, leading to consequences that could have been unrepairable. When the player presented the evidence, Chief Crosby informed the mayor and made sure that the Loochester News would be closed for good.

After learning more about the heist, the chief told us to keep a eye out for anything related to the heist as well as finding Mitch Fox while they are preparing for the New Year Eve celebrations.
