Plot

After the leads sent the player along with Leigh Tempest back to the Fontaine family's mansion, before they could knock on the door, they found young woman Perri Fontaine drowned to death in the courtyard's fountain. They added internet star's brother and victim's fiancé Alexander Lynch after they found out about his jealousy of the victim's romances with other men, the victim's father, Henri Fontaine due to his disapproval for his daughter's choice of who to marry.

They also suspected the victim's sister, Daphnée Fontaine, who believed that Alexander was a sleaze who flirted with other women and didn't deserve the victim's marriage nor love, then they heard of someone sulking around the ballroom. They confirmed the last two suspects as the victim's mother Fiona Fontaine, who believed that her daughter wasn't good enough, even going to abuse her for her recklessness, and animalistic human Luke Fox, who was made fun of by the victim. Although Alexander had made actions, including destroying the ballroom, evidence pointed out Luke Fox guilty of the homicide.

He soon admitted guilt as he claimed that the Fontaine family were abusing humankind and using a drug that could morph humans into the furry creatures that were like Luke. After he found out that Perri know about the gang leader who was in the family, he tried to get answers from her by visiting the mansion. However, in the end, he ended up killing her. Judge Brighton gave him 20 years in jail for the murder.

They went to see Luke in the aftermath of the trial, who told them that he had a lead which he lost in the ballroom. There they found a missing poster concerning Tess Fontaine. They talked to Fredrick Fontaine, husband of the missing Fontaine, who said that Perri had discovered a bag of drugs, leading the detectives to investigate. They found a bag of white drugs that had traces of Derek Fontaine's DNA.

Upon arrest, Derek was forced to confess his involvement in the gang but flat out denied to tell the reasons behind his mother's disappearance. However he let slip that Perri had stolen a map from him while he was sentenced to 50 years in prison. They found the map, which revealed details about a hidden laboratory in the hills.

After Summer Murphy gave Major Lucas a wolf charm to admit her feelings for him, the team went to search for the hidden laboratory in the hills.
