Plot

The player and James Defolio were relaxing in the headquarters, talking about OMNISCIENT when Andrea received a call informing them of a body on the beach. When the pair arrived they found surfer Blake Parker stabbed multiple times. Roxie confirmed that Blake was stabbed eleven times in the torso before his body was dumped on the beach. The detectives first questioned the victim's friend Minnie Everlyn, tourist Catherine Smith and local Bob Johnson before hearing reports of a fight breaking out at a local nightclub. There, they questioned nightclub owner Damien Rodriguez about the fight before discovering that it was disc jockey Sylvia O'Connell who started it. Before the pair could continue the investigation, they received reports of a woman ranting about the victim on the beach. The team discovered that Catherine was the one ranting about the victim and confronted her. Eventually, they gathered enough evidence to arrest Sylvia for the crime.

Sylvia confessed to the crime after being faced with the evidence and confessed that she was in love with Blake. She recounted how she had been in love with him for years and finally gathered enough courage to tell him on the night of the murder. Upon confessing the truth, Blake laughed at her and mocked her for her feelings. Furious, she stabbed him to death before dumping his body on the beach. In court, Judge Dante sentenced her to 10 years in prison.
