On the Chopping Block (Case #21) is the twenty-first fanmade case as well as being the fourth case in the Twilight Town district by CCFan32.

Case Background

Detective Patricia Bennett and Junior Officer Michael Collins were playing a round of Scuttle until Chief Price quickly assigns the team to investigate Arnold Young's warehouse because he reported a dead body in his warehouse. Patricia went with the player and discovered a headless body hung to a hook with their left hand chopped off. The team found the victim's wallet and identified them as Roger Armstrong, the butcher's old apprentice. Elizabeth confirmed that Roger's head and left hand were chopped off with one clean cut with a sharp object. It wasn't until the team's second visit to the lake to find Roger's decapitated hand. It was later revealed that the killer was Roger's father, Richard Armstrong.

Roger and Rebecca were in a relationship and loved each other dearly. One day, Roger proposed to Rebecca and the two planned to get married. Roger's father, Richard, did not approve of this and forbidded Roger to see Rebecca ever again. Richard didn't want his son to marry and wanted his son around the house. If Roger went through with the wedding, Richard would be lonely. He thought the only solution was to murder his son, since he thinks his son betrayed him. He deeply regretted killing his only son and wanted Rebecca dead instead. Patricia has never heard of such a family meltdown like this and thinks the Honorable Kingsley wouldn't either.

In court, Richard believed that what he did was best for his son since he would have divorced Rebecca anyways. However, Harry Rockwell's psychological report suggested solitude was the driving reason that led Richard to grand homicide but even with homicidal delusions the report declared Richard sane which explained why Richard was given a 25-year jail sentence instead of treatment in an institution for the criminally insane.

Following Richard's arrest, Douglas wanted to check up on Scott Walker and wanted to try to prove that he ratted him out during the banking heist. Unfortunately, Douglas had insufficient evidence and Scott eventually got a restraining order put on Douglas because he thinks he's delusional.
